HHO Dry Cell vs Wet Cell

HHO Dry Cell vs Wet Cell

So, what's all the controversy about? Why is the HHO Dry Cell a better design?

Here are 2 main reasons:

1. When the edges of the plates of a hho generator are submerged in the water/catalyst bath a great deal of the electrical current passes through the edges of the plates. This current is largely wasted in terms of HHO production. When the edges are outside of the bath, as with the hho dry cell, all of the current is forced to travel directly to the faces of the plates. Therefore all of the current supplied to the hho generator is utilized in efficiently making HHO gas.
This is the main reason the hho dry cell design has become so popular.

2. The electrolyte bath attacks and will eventually destroy the electrical connections if they are submerged. With the hho dry cell design they are outside of the water/catalyst solution which is stored in a separate reservoir and recirculated by the hho dry cell, this help in producing more hho gas and less heat (steam)

The plates of our HHO dry cells are made of 316L stainless steel. This has been found to have the best properties of resistance to attack from the process of electrolysis. However, mounting hardware and wire and cable are very difficult to find in 316L grade and are very costly to use.
Therefore copper cable is usually used by Hydrogen on Demand installers when installing their hho generators. And a lower grade of stainless steel nuts and bolts are used by hho generator builders for assembly and when these are submerged in the electrolyte, they rapidly get eaten away.

With the HHO dry cell design, all of these connections are outside of the electrolyte so this isn't an issue.

Why is it that a hho dry cell design produces more hho gas?

Because it is efficient, there is not a lot of wasted spaced and electrolyte solution that is not being used and charged with current. The very small volume of electrolyte solution that enters the hho dry cell is subjected to electrical current and able to react and create hho, then exit the hho dry cell generator and recirculate.

Why do hho dry cells run cooler than other hho generators?

Again, because of the design of the hho drycell, with the "wet cell" generators the heat created by the electrolysis process has no place to go. With the Dry Cell Design the electrolyte solution is gravity fed in order to keep it replenished. A constant flow keeps the unit from overheating.
