Commercial hydrogen torch units e. I never heard of any dyi involving one of these devices, and I have been in the trade for quite some time now. Or, in this case, the container.

What are these people talking about, commercial gas generators use water ttorch caustic mix and generate gas in the same cell, too many idiots with off the wall ideas who have no idea about commercial gas generators for welding, nothing to do with fringe science, these gas generators have been made this way for decades, not enough stored gas to give any problem, very safe and very reliable.

Mix it at the nozzle. The ddiy in my system was minimal less than 5ml in the wet cell electrolyser and ml in the bubbler, a flash back would only produce a nice pop.

I would imagine that acetylene would work ok, just make sure to use the arrestors. This seems like the perfect recipe for scraping bits of the would-be welder off the walls. Copyright Leaf Group Ltd. They can melt platinum.

Never store these gases together you will kiss and mame. Reading comprehension failure, I suppose. Lindsay Wilson — imajeenyus: Open a 6 volt lantern battery and take out the carbon rods. I use the welder to repair jewelry and all other kinds of small stuff frames of glasses. A Science Project on Magnetic Cars. Hydrogen water torches are similar to blow torches, but they work at much higher temperatures. Well, you can put your safety in his hands if you want.


Seriously, check out the Instructable and see for yourself! Not to mention, the standard of cleanliness for pipework and valves that contain oxygen is quite high. This article was written by the Sciencing team, copy edited and fact checked through a multi-point auditing system, in efforts to ensure our readers only receive the best information.

What about doing proper electrolysis, separating oxygen and hydrogen and then mixing it again in regular oxyacetylene welding torch? Wrap a piece of wire around each of the carbon rods, and attach the other end of each wire to a contact on a 9 volt battery. References Five Shades of Green Energy: I use one with a 28ga tip to join small stainless steel parts. Surprisingly, the smaller needle runs perfectly cool, but the bigger one heats up and starts softening the plastic holder after a while.

So what does this get used for? Also the gas cools the nozzle continuously as it flows past.

Warning Wear safety goggles when using your hydrogen torch. Simply splitting water into oxygen and hydrogen then lighting the mix is not very efficient. Depending on which text editor you’re pasting into, you might have to add the italics to the site name.

Was once employed in a repair shop that ran a lot of phos-copper brazing in deep slots by hand of course. I would strongly recommend you set up the electrolysis cell with hydrogen captured at the cathode and oxygen captured at the anode, without mixing them, and piped separately to the torch with two independent tubes and mixed at the torch with a pair of valves. Used to run it for scrap cutting till they phased out the old style tanks. Splitting and lighting is super efficient.

The entire build uses almost all standard readily available parts — except for the nozzle assembly. If you are intent on blowing yourself up with a 2: Which would exert more pressure on the piston.


Email required Address never made public. Is that valve, pipe compound, etc oxygen-safe? But HHO welders do have superpowers, they can melt metal by burning water. Put an inch neoprene tube at the hhoo of the glass container just above the water line, and seal hyo opening of the container around the tube with plastic dig. To submit your questions or ideas, or to simply learn more about Sciencing, contact us here.

This is a bad idea. Yes — simply change HHO to oxyhydrogen and that would solve it. Fill a glass container with two cups of water and a teaspoon of salt.

Best of all, this incredibly powerful torch costs much less than a traditional torch. So, you want to build an oxy-hydrogen blowtorch powered torc a water-electrolysis cell to generate the hydrogen and oxygen? Holy hell, do you people even read? Instead, the hydrogen torch produces just water while working at temperatures that can weld refractory metals a normal torch can’t.

Things Needed 6 volt battery Fine grade sandpaper Wire 9 volt battery Glass container 2 cups water 1 tsp salt inch neoprene tube IV tubing, available at medical supply stores Plastic wrap Steel wool Basketball pump needle available at sporting todch stores. Any kind of flashback on that is going to burn all the way back to the generator, since the gas is pre-mixed at a nearly perfect stoichiometric ratio. You are commenting using your WordPress.

But my fucking god, do people actually take premixed oxygen and hydrogen and intentionally light it on fire? Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: That is still immense.
