Building my own HHO system

Im working with my dad and am trying to develop our own HHO system. I have a basic idea of what to do. But I mean really basic. This weekend I plan on testing to see how much H2 and O2 I can produce and try different things to increase the amount. I am asking for suggestions from people that have done this and can help me to develop a really efficient system. I do not know anything about additives to the water or anything so if anyone knows about that please help me out. I wanted to buy one but the places I have tried to get them from will not contact me back so I am sick of waiting and want to build one. I am open to any suggestions lol I need some help. I do have some chemistry and engineering background so if that helps for explanation purposes.

There is a section in the forums for HHO related topics. You will probably get better answers to your questions there. I have done a little experimenting and I use baking soda for the electrolite, just don't over do it or you will start pulling too many amps and creating a lot of heat, the two things you don't want.

Don't use Baking soda, it will ruin your HHO cell! Baking soda also produce toxic gasses.
Use only Potassium Hydroxide or sodium Hydroxide.
I sent you a PM.

you will need a bubbler to remove the corrosive gas made by any electrolyte, and get onto youtube and look for pwmpower, he has a how to video on a simple Pulse wave modulator... cuts the amp draw in half and produces more hho.

any question feel free to ask

Just one question...

What is the pulse wave modulator?....

And if anyone can really explain how this whole process works and how it is able to help that would be great. I keep hearing a bunch of things but not have heard it explained to well and research is kinda difficult due to alot of the Spam out there trying to get you to by their product...

A PWM clycles the energy going into the cell on and off, therefore reducing energy consumption and heat within the cell.

I thought it was a pulse width modulator and it uses a square wave to give an overall lower AVERAGE voltage. now I am talking about industrial ones, not ones that are home made for cars. you can also change the duty cycle to change the voltage depending on the frequency which you are switching at.
