Title: VIDEO TUTORIAL - Build Your Own HHO Generator !
Post by: PDJ on December 16, 2008, 05:36:50 PM
Edit - 19th October 2011

When this original instructional post was placed in this forum 3 years ago, the majority of cell construction was of a "Wet Cell" design.

* A wet cell has all the components assembled and then inserted into a reservoir of electrolyte. This not only has all the plates immersed, but the sides - ends and the wiring also immersed.
* A dry cell is constructed so that the electrolyte actually flows through the centre of the plate stack and does not touch the ends of the plates or electrical connections.

As at this edit date you will find that the majority of generator construction is of a "Dry Cell" design. The main reasons being that it was found that immercing the plates completely allowed the ends of the plates to bridge the circuit gap when immerced in the electrolyte. This  created excessive amp draw increasing the temperature and restricted gas production. Having the wires and connecting straps also immerced altered the balance of the unit if not insulated.

The video tutorial below is very effective but you will find that there is a great deal of attention given to trying to insulate the ends of the plates and the connecting wires and straps.

It is worth noting that there are many thousands of people all over the world using "Wet Cells". I think the general rule here is if you can effectively set up a system that runs well and saves you fuel it is OK to do whatever you want as long as you set it up right.

There is a great deal of discussion in this forum regarding "Dry Cell" design.

You are encouraged to take the time to read through the vast amount of information in this forum to make your own mind up what type of cell you want to construct........ Remember that there are many forum members to help guide you through it all.


Sometimes just looking at plans will not inspire you to start constructing your own Generator. There are that many variables to take into consideration and there is always the question of "Does the person offering the plans have the necessary skills to allow you to build a viable product"

I came across a guy with over 140 movies on Youtube about HHO, and this guy is a true pioneer of HHO that does not profit from it in any way. There have been thousands of people view his experiment videos. His web site is http://www.alt-nrg.org

I have gathered together a selection of his movies offering "from Beginning to End" tutorial / instructions on building a 2 ltr/min generator.

These movies are true experimental videos. I suggest finding the time to watch all of them because he documents design changes to maximise production of HHO. You will love his dedication - he is part of a unique group of selfless people all around the world helping everyone for nothing.

Scroll down for the movies.
They are recorded in multiple segments due to Youtube Movie Length Restrictions.
Please make sure you read the posting below this one.

In this series of movies you find out how to make a very efficient generator - To a certain degree TOO efficient.

The amount of foam produced with very little electrolyte can be disbursed by making slightly wider plates that are not as high and using the same height container. The electrolyte should only cover the plate array, and if you use the same height container you will not have the excess foam problem.

You may find that your vehicle may not need 2 ltrs/min production, so a PWM will allow you to regulate the voltage and production (giving less foam).

Don't forget the EFIE for your O2 sensor (two on V6 & V8 engines)

(Important Edit)

Having too many bubbles is potentially damaging to all aluminium alloy surfaces inside your engine. If you have a pipe direct form your generator that does not go through an effective bubbler you will allow a high acid humidity into your air intake along with the HHO. You will have expensive acid corrosion damage..... Make sure you read all in this forum about bubblers......
