HHO Hydrogen Generators & Safety | Good Electrical Connections Reduce Explosion Hazards

If you saw my other post on HHO hydrogen generators, you know we like to build our own homemade fuel cells. This stuff isn’t rocket surgery, folks. Even us rural Alberta rednecks can make a functioning HHO hydrogen generator from common hardware store items. Having said that, there is the potential to make a dangerous explosive device by accident. In fact, we did make an explosion accidentally. It happened in Aron’s house, on the kitchen table. The generator we built was working great, until it exploded and blew both ends off the housing. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and only the generator was damaged.
What we think happened was that a loose connection inside the unit made a spark, which ignited the hydrogen. Since then, we have modified our design to contain no connections of any kind inside. The anodes are one solid piece of material from the outside all the way to the end inside.

    I think our wives are kind of glad we are working on something semi productive for a change. We usually just light things on fire or blow hem up.

We'd love to hear your comments!
