Who is Stanley Meyer?

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Ok so here it is, what you’ve all been waiting for!

If you’ve looked at HHO, or Hydrogen from water or anything along those lines then you’ve probably heard of Stanley Meyer. Some guests on this blog have already hinted at results from this man. Those of you who know who he is and what he has done will appreciate this, however I

HHO Design Configurations Part 2

Monday, September 29th, 2008

Ok so the HHO thread of posts isn’t completely closed out. I do have plenty of additional details to post about.

I should have been more specific in describing the optimum Hydrogen electrolysis unit. A question was asked as to why the PVC plates are needed?

The reason for this is because there needs to be something to stabilize the system. I described the plates as square but turned 45 deg thus forming a diamond. The stack of plates and gaskets would be sandwiched between two insulator plates and the PVC plates just outside the insulator plates. The threaded rods extending the length of the stack on all sides of the diamond stack and insulated by vinyl tubing would be threaded through holes in the PVC plates at holes just outside the diamond outline thus bounding the stack and holding it together. The insulator plates on both ends could be made from fiberglass or lexan or some other kind of chemical resistant non-conductor. The idea is that the vinyl tubing insulating the threaded rods would extend the length of the space between the PVC plates. So if you didn’t have any insulator plates then there is always the possibility that one of your metal plates would slip through a small gap between the PVC end-plate and the vinyl tubing that is insulating the threaded rod there-by causing the system to short out. The insulator end-plate prevents this from happening because the first metal plate would then be a few millimeters inside the vinyl tubing and threaded rods that are holding the whole assembly together. The PVC plate would be square but not tilted 45-deg like the other plates there-by allowing the user of the system to leave the entire assembly on the floor and maintaining the orientation of the diamond stack of plates and gaskets so that the water solution will remain at the bottom and gas can escape through the holes at the top diamond apex of every plate through the length of the stack. If your still confused by

Huntsville, a time for change!

Not everyone is aware of the recent accident in Huntsville Alabama but they should be! A bicyclist pedestrian was hit by a driver of an SUV who was distracted. This situation should never have happened indeed it is unacceptable. To think that a person could hop on their bicycle and go for a ride thus ending up dead thanks to some person playing <insert distracting device/event here> while driving is reflective on the deplorable situation here in Huntsville, not to mention the complete lack of planning and leadership from the city of Huntsville. (Speaking of the total safety feeling one gets while riding a bicycle down roads such as

HHO Design Configurations

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

I must appologize to my readers for not posting recently, after doing the research that I did and learning the things that I’ve learned I discovered enough to know what it would take to build a proper HHO system that would be truely optimized! I discovered that to really figure out exactly what specs to use for a system I would need a decent Oscilliscope. These cost about $2000 for a reasonably nice one. So the HHO project had to be put on hold until I can get past my current financial situation. Lets just say I owe some money to the big tax man for my work as a contractor last year…ironicly writing tax software. ;)

Let me close this series of HHO threads off by stating what I’ve learned leading up to this point with regards to Hydrogen. I know this will interest those of you who are looking to build systems, and a new reader who has expressed interest in the work of Stanley Meyers.

On that note, I’ve learned the when you perform electrolosis on water typically you have some form of metal suspended in a solution of water. The water contains electrolytes to act as a catalyst in the chemical reaction, such as salt, Potasium Hydroxide, or Sodium Hydroxide, or Sodium Bicarbonate, as discusted in previous posts. It doesn’t matter what configuration you are using for the point I want to make because of the conditions I’ve placed on the configuration as stated above. If you have wire, tubes, mesh, plates, coils, whatever it is, the edges of these components have what is called a “Leak Charge”. This means that some of the electric current passing through the device leaks around the edges and corners of your metal components. This “leak charge” still does work on the system resulting in heating the solution but does not contribute to the breaking of Hydrogen and Oxygen bonds. This is the primary reason why the solution will get warm or even hot over time. So you are essentially paying for the performance of your device and as result you have a glorified water heater. If you see bubbles and your solution is very hot, it is not necessarily Hydrogen and Oxygen. Rather it is just steam boiling off as if you where going to use that water to cook up some pasta.

Now I don’t recommend putting noodles in your electrolosis reactor, however, alternative design configurations should be considered to reduce this performance loss to the system. A
