Hopefully, the information on this page will help you understand how using Neutral Plates can improve the operating efficiency of your HHO Generators; including Separation Generators. Without neutrals, your voltage supply is applied to each set of plates. If using 12 vdc, each set of plates operates off of 12 vdc. The problem is, the voltage is too high for efficiency. It causes excess heat; which in turn increases amperage; which causes more heat; which increases amperage until it boils the water out of your cell. Using multiple sets of these plates will slow down thermal runaway, but efficiency can not hold a candle to Series configurations using neutral plates. A combination of Unipolar and Bipolar configurations comes close, but at an expense. In the long run, it is better to build a 7 plate series configuration if you are using 12 vdc powering systems.
   
7 Plate Series Cell  + n n n n n -
Construction consists of 1 positive plate, 5 neutral plates, and 1 negative plate. The cell is capable of producing 1 Liter Per Minute using 16 amps. If you want to operate this cell continuously, without it overheating, the Active Plate Surface needs to be a minimum of 5.5 inches x 5.5 inches
   
6 Plate Series Cell  + n n n n -
Construction consists of 1 positive plate, 4 neutral plates, and 1 negative plate. The cell is capable of producing 1 Liter Per Minute using 19.2 amps. If you want to operate this cell continuously, without it overheating, the Active Plate Surface needs to be a minimum of 6 inches x 6 inches
   
5 Plate Series Cell  + n n n -
Construction consists of 1 positive plate, 3 neutral plates, and 1 negative plate. The cell is capable of producing 1 Liter Per Minute using 24 amps. If you want to operate this cell continuously, without it overheating, the Active Plate Surface needs to be a minimum of 6.7 inches x 6.7 inches
   
4 Plate Series Cell  + n n -
Construction consists of 1 positive plate, 2 neutral plates, and 1 negative plate. The cell is capable of producing 1 Liter Per Minute using 32 amps. If you want to operate this cell continuously, without it overheating, the Active Plate Surface needs to be a minimum of 7.7 inches x 7.7 inches
   
3 Plate Series Cell  + n -
Construction consists of 1 positive plate, 1 neutral plate, and 1 negative plate. The cell is capable of producing 1 Liter Per Minute using 48 amps. If you want to operate this cell continuously, without it overheating, the Active Plate Surface needs to be a minimum of 9.5 inches x 9.5 inches.
   
Plate Parallel Cell  + -
Construction consists of 1 positive plate and 1 negative plate. The cell is capable of producing 1 Liter Per Minute using 96 amps. If you want to operate this cell continuously, without it overheating, the Active Plate Surface needs to be a minimum of 13.4 inches x 13.4 inches.
   
To put this in perspective, look at the following chart. Each cell is producing 1 LPM at a different amperage. Plate voltage is also different (using a 12 volt power source). It is very easy to see that the 7 plate cell is more efficient than the others.
 
 
Number of Plates Size of Plates Current Density Operating Amps Liters Per Minute Plate Voltage
           
7 5.5 x 5.5 in. 16.34 amps 16 1.002 2 V
6 6 x 6 in. 19.44 amps 19.2 1.002 2.4 V
5 6.7 x 6.7 in. 24.24 amps 24 1.002 3 V
4 7.7 x 7.7 in 32.02 amps 32 1.002 4 V
3 9.5 x 9.5 in 48.74 amps 48 1.002 6 V
2 13.4 x 13.4 in 96.96 amps 96 1.002 12 V
