Which Electrolyte ?

Posted under HHO Cell Technicals by admin

Which electrolyte will you choose for your HHO Cell ?

Not so easy to answer especially when you’re a newbie !
We have listed here some frequently used electrolytes , but before selecting one from the list, because you think  “this one is good for me”,  first read the following lines, it can save you a lot of trouble!
Quick tips to remember:

1) Always remember that electrolysis causes chemical reactions and unless you’re a great chemist, abstain yourself to “invent” your personal recipes.
Do you know for example that if you use salt as electrolyte, it will release chlorine during the electrolysis? And if your engine block includes aluminum parts …. He will not like it at all!
And salt is one example among many others.

2) Preferably, use the electrolyte recommended by the manufacturer of your generator. Some electrolytes are not recommended in certain types of hho cells. Such as baking soda in dry cells. Not that this is dangerous, but the good old baking soda causes lot of oxidation, which generated very quickly, and forces you to completely dismantle your dry cell for cleaning … Not cool!

3) If possible & depending on the HHO Cell type  you own, start with an electrolyte safe to handle, such as baking soda or other listed below as safe.
It will help you get acquainted with the electrolysis, and to test different settings safely.

4) HHO Cell are a good deal for nobody except you and me … … result = no industrial or official corps are interested in, so there is a lack of scientific data and unless being chemist oneself,  it’s difficult to know, for example, what happens as chemical reactions in the bath. So when you drain your generator, get the liquid and discard you in your local rubbish dump marking on the can “electrolytic bath”

______________________________________________________________________

The various electrolytes used in a generator HHO:

A) Tap water (H2O + different particles)

Advantages:

Available everywhere
Cheap
Almost safe ( see below )
Disadvantages:
Low gas production

Causes of oxidation

The various particles in water are congregating to the electrodes, and perturbate electrolysis

Beware of water containing chlorine! Electrolytic bath get “used” quickly

For Which  HHO cell type:

Easily cleanable cells ….

Conclusion:

Not the best !

______________________________________________________________________
B) White Vinegar (acetic acid)

Advantages:

Available at grocery store
Cheap
Safe
The electrodes stay clean

Disadvantages:

Low gas production
Strong smell

Which type of HHO generator:

All but gas production will be nearly zero in a Mason Jar type HHO Cell type
Test pure, pour white vinegar directly without diluting it in “Plates” generators whether dry or wet cell. Do you get a sufficient output for your vehicle ?  Bingo! Continue this way Dude ! White vinegar is one of the most eco-electrolytes !

Conclusion:

Why not?

______________________________________________________________________
C) sodium bicarbonate – Baking Soda – NaHCO3

Advantages:

Available at grocery store
Cheap
Safe
Very good gas production

Disadvantages:

Significant and rapid oxidation, the water becomes brown
The electrolytic bath “wear out” quickly, we must change the bath every 1000 miles
Produces some CO2 and CO

Which type of HHO generator:

Only in a Mason Jar type HHO Cell , which you can drain and clean easily.
Not at all recommended for dry cells, unless you intend to spend your time disassembling and reassembling your cell ….

Conclusion:

Very Nice for starters, and only in a Mason Jar type HHO Cell

______________________________________________________________________
D) Caustic Soda (Sodium Hydroxide – NaOH)

Yes, yes, it is indeed the blocked drain-pipe counter!

Advantages:

Available at grocery store
Cheap
Very good gas production
Production of 95 – 100% pure HHO
The electrodes stay clean
Not too dangerous to handle (but still dangerous!)

Disadvantages:

Corrosive, handle with care

Which type of HHO generator:

Interesting for all types of HHO generators

Conclusion:

Very good electrolyte

______________________________________________________________________
E) Potash (Potassium Hydroxide – KOH)

Advantages:

Cheap
Excellent gas production
Production of 95 – 100% pure HHO
The electrodes stay clean

Disadvantages:

Corrosive, handle with care
The dilution of KOH in water produces heat, and can even bring water to boil, this reaction takes place even if you already are using KOH in aqueous solution.
Can’t find it every where, the best source I’ve found is….. ebay!  Just click here for direct linking : Potassium Hydroxyde ( KOH )

For Which type of HHO generator:

Interesting for all types of HHO generators

Conclusion:

Excellent electrolyte

______________________________________________________________________
F) potassium carbonate – K2CO3

Advantages:

Cheap
Excellent gas production
Production of 95 – 100% pure HHO
The electrodes stay clean
Safe

Disadvantages:

We did not find it so easyly
For my part I ordered from my pharmacist, before I discovered that it was avalaible on ebay for less ! See it here : Potassium Carbonate ( K2CO3 )

Which type of HHO generator:

Interesting for all types of HHO generators

Conclusion:

Excellent electrolyte

  1. HHO Generator Said,

    As far as hho production, does Koh produce more than potassium carbonate ?

  2. admin Said,

    I don’t really know…. But what I know is that it’s not important since 1 amp is 1 amp…. and since you probably know that very small quantities of electrolytes are used in a HHO cell.
    Also take care of KOH propension to create foam that can fill your tank and over flow to the air intake.
