HHO is the way to Go!
In the Fall of 2009, Dave Oswald joined IDEAS with a passion to engage others in hands-on Research and Development.
Our first IDEAS R&D project idea was conceived in our Chemistry II courses at UCF where we were learning about the electrolysis process. With our dependence on foreign oil and fossil fuels a significant challenge for our country, we decide that electrolysis of water could help to solve this challenge. Weeks later we had made our first “Hydrogen-on-Demand” (HHO) system.
For this project, we helped to create 3 prototype HHO-electrolyzers (2 flat plate and 1 cylindrical electrolyzer) that split H2O (water) into hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) gases; a combination known as “Browns Gas.”
This gas created is a combustible gas that could be supplemented into a combustion engine to decrease the fuel intake, better the fuel economy, and drastically decrease our emissions — with WATER!!
In theory, the car battery and the mechanics of your vehicle will help to charge the electrolyzer, via the alternator, and therefore begins the process of splitting water into HHO.
Once the water has been split, you can send that HHO gas into the combustion engine, supplementing the engine with diluted hydrogen, and giving you the ability of decreasing the fuel intake into the combustion chamber and drastically reducing the gasoline consumption for your vehicle.
Dave explains the process behind HHO.
