Can I Purify Hydrogen from my HHO with a Metal Hydride?

We occasionally get questions from people wanting to know if they can use a Metal Hydride (MH) to purify the Hydrogen from an HHO generator, so I thought I would post our response here:No Why? Putting HHO into a metal hydride container should not be done.  Aside from the fact that it would be extremely unsafe to put HHO gas in a chamber with a cataylst (e.g. MH) since it will cause it to burn/explode, both Oxygen and … [Read more...]

How Much Hydrogen (or Oxygen) Will my Electrolyzer Make?

There are a lot of design considerations that go into an electrolyzer that will dictate what pressure they can operate at, their efficiency, safety, etc.  Today I will let you worry about all the mechanical design and talk a bit about the principles behind the electrolyzer and what this means to you (the designer).  Everything below applies primarily to PEM water electrolysis, but much of it may apply to other electrolyzer types as well.  If you want to skip the explanation, you … [Read more...]
