What Makes HHO Dry Cells Better ?

What Is A HHO Dry Cell?
How Is The HHO Dry Cell More Efficient?

" HHO Dry Cell" is a name that has been attached to a particular design of hho electrolyzers, or HHO generators.
The term dry-cell is a bit confusing to some people because they wonder how you can be using electrolysis of water to make HHO gas if the unit runs dry. Truth is these hho drycells use electrolyte in water like any other hho generator.
However the properties and the design of the hho Dry Cell make it a much more efficient hho generator.
Maybe a better name could have been found for this design, but "HHO Dry Cell" is here to stay.

With most other common types of HHO generators known as "wet cells" the whole cell is submerged into an open bath of electrolyte and water.
This is not the case with the dry cell design,instead, the dry cell's plates are separated by rubber gaskets, and the electrolyte is confined inside those gaskets where the main body of the plates is bathed in the solution and no energy is lost.
The edges of the plates, including all of the electrical connections are outside of the electrolyte bath. Designers of "open bath" units such as the Bob Boyce 101 have been experimenting with all kinds of ways to seal the edges of their plates as this is where most of the energy is lost.

The cell plates have holes in them in order to get electrolyte in to the individual cell sections, witch is the space between 2 plates, and to let the gas get out. This is one area of experimentation with the HHO dry cell that is still on going, builders of these designs seem to have differing opinions as to the number of holes and the displacement of the holes for optimum performance. There are even those who claim to have built dry cells without any holes in the plates to prevent current leakage.
There are holes at the top of each plate, so that the HHO gas can pass from between the plates to the outer sides of the cell.
The upper fitting on the out side body of the hho dry cell allows the HHO gas to get out of the cell along with the water solution pumping back to the reservoir tank.
There are also holes at the bottom of each plate to allow the water/catalyst to circulate between all plates. One design of this dry cell type generator by hho2u has 3 holes to speed up the pumping action this cell is gaining an awesome reputation Worldwide as being very energy efficient.
The lower fitting on the outer body of theHHO dry cell is for replenishing the water mixture which is held in a tank separate from the cell.

So to summarize, what makes a hho generator a "dry cell" ?.

Well basically the electrical connections to the plates are dry and the edges of the plates, are outside of the electrolyte bath. This is why compared to a "wet cell" hho generator, where a great deal of electrical current is lost in the water solution and wasted. The hho dry cell is much more efficient.
That's really all there is to it. Explore more about efficiency of hho generators at HHO Dry Cell Kits

Do HHO Dry Cell Designs Produce More HHO Gas ?

Dry Cells are being touted to produce more hho gas than other designs. As more and more people experiment and share the results of their work on the web, more improvements will be made and better hho generator designs will be discovered.

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 dry cell, 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.

      Hi Muhammad

      You can still get hho cells and kits at . I will be modifiing your email in the comment to prevent you from getting spammed bombed.

      Well Rickey

      Perhaps you should do a bit of research on the subject of hho and producing hho (Oxyhydrogen )

      Oxyhydrogen is a mixture of hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) gases.

      The hho dry cell is just one of innumerable hho generators used to "blast" water apart to produce a burnable gas.

      Most people have done electrolysis experiments in grade school.

      aaaaaaaaahhhhhh. I still don't get tha ish about the dry cell
