I can't determine your plate configuration from the photos. How many +, - and neutral plates do you have. Contrary to popular belief, "neutral" plates do very little if anything for gas production.Jeeperforlife wrote: Each plate is 3" X 12", there is 12 plates and I have 12 more for another cell.
I use distilled water (1 gal) mixed with 6oz of concentrated limon juice. The electrolyte stays clean for a long, long time. When I used tap or well water, the electrolyte turned to thick, brown mud in less than 1 minute.Also the watter turns very dark after less than a minute what is this caused by? All metal on this is 316 stainless.
This is a unit I built 2 years ago. It's about the same size and configuration as yours but, it has 6 positive plates, 6 negative plates and zero neutral plates. It produces 3 liters per minute at 12volts / 13amps and produces very little heat. The electrolyte never boils.
