I use the welder to repair jewelry and all other kinds of small stuff hhi of glasses. Clean the carbon rods with fine grade sandpaper.

Best of all, this incredibly powerful torch costs much less than a traditional torch. I would imagine that acetylene would work ok, just make sure to use the arrestors.

But HHO welders do have superpowers, they can melt metal by burning water. Insert the carbon rods, with the torcj hanging out and the 9 volt battery resting outside the container. Used to run it for scrap cutting till they phased out the old style tanks. Was easy since the fittings were the same then.

I suppose most of the heat is probably getting sent out, away from the tip but still. Perhaps this post could serve as an inspiration for a dual hose, more complex design.

The gas 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.

Storing fuel and oxidizer is idy recipe for boom. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Carbon Dioxide is only 0.

How to Make a Hydrogen Torch. I never heard of any accident involving one of these devices, and I have been in the trade for quite some time now. They can melt platinum.

All in all not all that bad!! Depending on which text editor you’re pasting into, you might have to add the italics to the site name.

I have been using these oxyhydrogen-welders professionally for decades now, they are commercially available and used by countless jewelers and opticians, they are sold under names like aquarius microflame and aquaflame.


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. Furthermore, whilst hydrogen is flammable, the pre-mixed stoichiometric hydrogen-oxygen mixture produced by just allowing the gases produced in the cell at the anode and the cathode to freely mix together is basically a potent pre-mixed explosive ready to detonate, so having that mixture hanging around through the system as opposed to mixing it only right where it burns is relatively dangerous.

This allows him to reduce the orifice size down to non-standard sizes which in turn allows him to increase the intensity of his HHO flame.

They are common tools in a jewelers arsenal. Splitting and lighting is super efficient. You are commenting using your Facebook account. Has anyone got a good how to for this idea of using the injection needles? Notify me of new posts via email. 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. Fascinated by hydrolysis apparatuses?

Reading comprehension failure, I suppose.
