Mike, I have a question about your flash port. Do you know at what pressure it begins to leak?  Some of my old units are running at 10 to 12 pounds pressure and have been afraid to use one that has to light of a spring.  The ones I built take over 40 pounds to begin to open.  Yours sure look much better than mine.  I like your workmanship!!  I didn't see them for sale on your web site but I will check again.

Sorry guys, I didn't see this post. Carter, I don't know at what pressure these will fail. I suppose that you could always put a stiffer spring inside.

Otto, the design is REALLY SIMPLE and I promise that I will have a video on how to build one in the next few days (possibly even late today). I have had quite a few people ask me about them.

OK Otto, as promised, I made a video and uploaded it. Not bad for such short notice, but then again like I said before it is a REALLY EASY design. Enjoy!

Thank you Sir, great video again.  This should help everyone when one refers to a flash port.

Very good Mike!  I was looking for another excuse to go to Home Depot -- it's like an addiction, y'know.

Otto:

If I remember right I ordered the brass filters from Auto Zone online, but I can't find them on their site now. I did find this link, although I can't vouch for them. Their price is good at $2.95 each, I paid $4.95 each for mine.

Thanks Mike, now that I see what you used I found one at NAPA auto parts for $2.19.

Otto, before you buy a brass filter, here is something cool to consider. Last year I ordered a .5 micron stainless steel diffusion stone that is used in beer making. It turns out that .5 micron is too small even for HHO. I was building up so much back pressure that I shut it down before I actually saw any bubbles come out. Now that I have some free time I am thinking of ordering this 2 micron stone to see if it works any better. Turns out beer making involves a lot of cool stuff that we could incorporate, expensive though.

Guys the beer supply store is where I get my hydrometer from.  It is only good for low concentration. It reads between 1% and 15% NaOH and 1% and 16% KOH aprox.  To use higher concentrations you need to get the hydrometer from a lab supply or use a battery hydrometer which are cheap.  I had a lab grade that did everything and broke it so since I very rarely use high concentrations got one form the local beer supply store.  $6.00 only compared to $40.  I have tried the 2 micron stainless diffuser and use it in reactors that are making 1.5 liters per minute or less.  I have stuck with the plastic type material form http://www.aquaticeco.com/subcategories/1560/Porous-Plastic-Diffusers/air%20stone/4 for larger volume reactors.  Here is a 20 micron one that is just way to expensive and is used in the Ozone industry but would do an excellent job with large volumes of HHO.  http://www.ozonesolutions.com/SD-12.html  Don't pass out with the price.  LOL

I use the same diffusers and am quite happy with them.
