Hydrogen fuel cells, HHO generators, green energy, alternative energy, renewable energy, Hydrogen gas, wind energy; we only have to switch on the news or we hear about these terms. Fossil fuels are running out fast, and the world with an ever rising productive economy is in need of new energy sources to handle the growth.
HHO gas could be the next big thing when it comes to renewable energy.
First of all, what is HHO gas?
HHO is the acronym for hydrogen – hydrogen – oxygen that are the components when you break down H2O or water into its elements.
Water spontaneously breaks down into its components at a temperature of 2500°C. At this temperature electrical input is unnecessary because water breaks down to hydrogen and oxygen through a reaction called thermolysis.
Most people are familiar with the term electrolysis that is when electric energy is conducted through water that has become an electrolyte.
To enable water to conduct electric current a conductive agent like potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide, vinegar, sulfuric acid, baking soda or even ordinary table salt is simply added to water.
Electrolysis is not a particularly efficient way to break down water into hydroxy gas but, as heat is applied the process requires less electric current since the electrolyte conducts electrical energy easier. Since heat energy is cheaper than electric energy an experimenter can consume less electric energy by heating the electrolyte. Of course, above 212 F the water in the electrolyte boils. As the steam departs the fluid the concentration of electrolyte in solution increases. This adds ions to the remaining water so that the conductivity increases even more leading to a total meltdown.
Stanley Meyer, a researcher with over 17 patents in the field of electrolysis and hydrogen production, invented another means of generating HHO gas using the resonance of water. By applying the correct frequency to get the components of water resonating while confining that energy to pure water he demonstrated that water will spontaneously break apart in the most efficient process known, molecular resonance.
HHO was extensively researched by Yull Brown. Some people refer to Oxyhydrogen as Brown’s gas. HHO or Brown’s gas is a mixture of hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) gases, typically in a 2:1 molar ratio, the same proportion as water. This gaseous mixture is used for torches for the processing of refractory materials and was the first  gaseous mixture used for welding.
A newcomer to the research of Brown’s gas is Denny Klein who re-invented HHO and called it Aquygen gas. He claims it is totally different than HHO gas and has allegedly patented Aquygen gas. I suspect that his discovery is no more than Atomic Hydrogen and Oxygen that was researched by Irving Langmuire way back in the 1930′s. See my article on Aquygen gas.
An HHO generator is device that breaks down water into its component gases or Oxyhydrogen. Most such devices work on the principle of electrolysis though Stanley Meyer’s design did not use an electrolyte and his process is not electrolysis. Running a small current through a solution, in this case water, will split the water and the hydrogen molecules. Hydrogen is a highly explosive gas, which can be fed into the air intake of an car or truck engine, and helps the combustion process. The hydrogen energy improves the miles gained on the fuel which runs the car. HHO gas is the solution to more efficient vehicles.
Properties of Hydrogen
HHO is highly explosive and highly flammable because the oxygen is actually part of the mixture. When used as a fuel these are good properties to have.
At atmospheric pressure the energy content of hydrogen is 3 watts per liter (290BTU per cu. foot).
A liter of gaseous hydrogen pressurized to 1450 psi has an energy content of only 300 Watt-hours compared to 8,890 Watt-hours for the same volume of gasoline. While a given weight of hydrogen has 2.8 times more energy than the same weight of gasoline the weight of a container suitable to store hydrogen is usually 100 times the weight of the hydrogen gas contained in it. So, on a volume basis, liquid hydrogen has only 27% of the energy of gasoline.
These facts limit the efficiency of employing pressurized hydrogen in containers for long distance travel in a car. The solution may be to use a hydrogen generator for on-demand hydrogen production.
What Are The Costs Of A Hydrogen Generator?
All the elements to produce the hydrogen in the car are there, we only need to add a HHO generator for the actual gas production. Any handy man and a bit of mechanic can install the device with a few hours. And off you go.
You can click to see the costs for a variety of HHO generators or you can build one yourself if you are handy with tools.
HHO generators assist in the reduction of green house gasses, as part of the engine combustion process is improved, the exhaust gases consist primarily of water vapor. In cities like Los Angeles, California, the use of hydrogen powered vehicles would actually cleanse the air since the exhaust gasses of a hydrogen vehicle are cleaner than the ambient air.
Global HHO Generators
HHO generators are magical little add-ons, and should be installed in every vehicle around the globe. If every vehicle would improve their efficiency by 10% the saving we would make together would be humongous, and life changing.
HHO generators could be used in all sorts of combustion engines, not just in normal cars, taxis, busses, trucks, transporters and trains.
HHO generators are definitely part of the solution to a healthier environment. Many car manufacturers are running experiments. But there are plenty of DIY HHO generator kits on the market which could improve your mileage tomorrow.
