Hello. I just want to know if you guys know a website, place, or store where you can use their apparatus and work on a stainless steel plate? Right now I'm planning to create a Hydrogen generator using water with catalyst. Thank you.
Ouch: Bit of egg on my face. Just realized what forum this was posted too and what you may be trying to do. You need a much better grasp on this subject before you waste money, or even bother to design, your generator.
Okay, these last 2 posts are weird. @RNickl -- say which what?Great though :D .Btw i'm planning to make a Hydrogen generator that's why I need to work on meta works. Is there some hardware shops around Sj that could help out though?
It depends upon how many electrons you have to pass to hydrolyze 0.1 to 0.15 mol water in a minute or a little less.I believe it depends on the configuration of the generator like the surface area of the plate, its size, how good the catalyst is,
Its not that expensive to make a hydrogen generator. The only problem is the proper shape and size of the stainless steel plate. Thats all.
Stainless steel as a catalyst? I'm no chemist, but that sounds like an oxymoron...Stainless Steel Plate will act as the Hydrogen Fuel Cell generator while submerged in water.
I didnt meant to say the stainless steel as catalyst. The catalyst I'm talking about could be like anything that would make the water very conductive. Like Baking Soda or Salt or something else. But that's not hard to do once the setup is laid out.Stainless steel as a catalyst? I'm no chemist, but that sounds like an oxymoron...
Thats the part I need to know. I passed my Chemistry but I kinda forgot those calculations. I need to restudy those.It depends upon how many electrons you have to pass to hydrolyze 0.1 to 0.15 mol water in a minute or a little less.
Interesting. What happens to the H2 after the electrolysis? Is it dumped back to the seawater?I have been near electrolytic oxygen/hydrogen generators, though never responsible for their operation or maintenance. Submarine sailors become inured to lots of the alarms on their ships, like salinity alarms and temperature alarms. But not the oxygen generator alarm or the anti-submarine alarms.
The O2 generator was nicknamed The Bomb for the potentially hazardous effects of 3000 psi gasses and high electrical currents. My particular vessel carried five-thousand chlorate candles. Once a danger tag was violated and they were wetted with seawater and each one had to be rinsed and dried and restowed, it took about a week.
Yes, just so. The H2 discharge is to an auxiliary cooling seawater, though notably the actual piping penetration is IIRC after the ASW hull and backup valves for the corrosive effects of HCl - the gaseous discharge had its own hull and backup valves.Interesting.

Why do you want to make Hydrogen for your car? Do you have a cheap source of electrical power that you are trying to find uses for?Considering a car engine, maybe about 2.8 liters in less than a minute (rough estimate). And glassware can't do the job. The container can be glassware but the Stainless Steel Plate will act as the Hydrogen Fuel Cell generator while submerged in water.
