"What is the best plate
thickness to use for HHO ?"
A good question. Often, what is the best and what you
can get are two different things. But given a choice, and assuming it is
available, most HHO companies are using 20 gauge or 0.036 inches thick.
It seems to have enough strength to resist bending and enough longevity
to satisfy customers. 22 gauge is slightly thinner, at 0.030 inches. It
costs a few dollars less per square foot, than 20 gauge, but is more
susceptible to the edges bending with some methods of cutting. 19 gauge
and 1 mm are good alternative choices, if you can find them. I used 16
gauge with my Tube cell, because the strength was needed in order to
avoid getting the tubes out of round. They had to be perfect in order to
create equal spacing inside - from tube to tube . The strength of the
flat plate is important, but in most cases, it does not need to be as
strong as 16 gauge. The thicker the steel, the harder it is to cut and
Below, I have listed some gauges that are being used.
They are all suitable for HHO. The thicker plates will last longer than
the long lasting thinner plates. I like the way I said that. Actually,
how long they will last is up to the user. If your amperage exceeds the
Current Density capability of the plate size, then you are to blame for
