|The "Flash Speed" or "Burn Speed" of HHO gas
is so fast that it is a safety concern for all of
us. Three thousand five hundred feet per second is fast. Most bullets
fired from a gun are not that fast. They may exit the gun barrel at that
speed, but they can not travel 3500 feet in one second of time. Superman
can, and so can a hose filled with HHO gas. HHO detonates instantly and
that makes it difficult to stop. To understand this a little better,
lets use an HHO welding torch as an example. The torch burns, when
ignited, because the HHO gas is coming out of it under slight pressure.
As long as that pressure exists, the torch will burn. But try to turn
the gas off and the HHO gas will instantly suck the explosion back into
the torch, and pop. If you are luck it will pop. If not luck, the flash
will make it all the way back to the source that is making the HHO. That
is called a Flashback.
Carbureted engines are notorious for backfires. If it happens while
using HHO, it will cause a Flashback. The backfire flame ignites the HHO
gas that is entering the combustion chambers. The flash travels back
towards the Cell and the Bubbler. Most often, it results in an explosion
that destroys something; your Air Box, your Bubbler, your Cell. However, fuel injected
engines rarely ever experience a backfire.
The welding industry makes Flash Arrestors for various gases but they
do not have one for HHO gas. They have one for Hydrogen, but it will not
work for HHO. HHO is an explosive mixture; being 2 parts hydrogen gas
for each 1 part oxygen; a 2:1 ratio.
Bronze Wool flash arrestors eventually stop up because the
electrolyte eventually sticks to it; same with porous arrestors made
from sand. Backing Soda stops up flash arrestors.
Sometimes, check valves work, but not all of the time. Learn how to make
The Plug - for 1/2 inch ID hose
