Oxyhydrogen Gas

Oxyhydrogen Gas

 

a mixture of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. When ignited, oxyhydrogen gas explodes violently; it burns more slowly in the presence of porous platinum. The reaction 2H2 + 02 = 2H20 + 572.5 kilojoules (136.74 kcal) permits the attainment of high temperatures (about 2800° C). For this reason the flame of oxyhydrogen gas is used to melt quartz and platinum, as well as for gas welding and cutting metals.

To reach this aim, Enerbox project integrates efficiently two complementary sources of renewable energy (PV and biomass)plus energy storage, to produce steady and reliable thermal energy, and with the inclusion of an H2 sub-system that incorporates an innovative process to enrich the thermal potential of the waste biomass energy by mixing it with auto-generated oxyhydrogen gas obtained from reverse electrolysis, all in a modular compact transportable solution.
BRAZING, a metal-joining process whereby a filler metal is heated above and distributed between two or more close-fitting parts by capillary action, has now been made safe and efficient with mixed oxyhydrogen gas generators.
The gas is generated through a particular electrolytic cell, able to get H2 and O2 from the water and comes out in a single pipe, perfectly mixed, without need for adjustment of the two gases, says Diego Andreetta global sales manager of Oxyweld, a leading manufacturer of oxyhydrogen gas generators.
