I live in Canada, what type of catalyst would work best in 40 below temps? Plus what else could I do to improve operation in cold conditions?

low temps and catalyst strength

Hi there! I live in Russia, but lived in Canada for 23 years! With the same temps as you and I have, I use NaOH (sodium hydroxide) or you can use KOH (potassium hydroxide). My strength is running at 1.5LPM for a 2-liter engine gasoline, or I draw about 20 amps. Both have similar results, but freezing in a Dry Cell is not really a problem. As soon as you pass a current through the generator, the ice melts and it works fine! Your reservoir is more of a problem. I suggest you use a heat tape, that you can buy from Canadian Tire. It will keep your battery warm and also could keep your reservoir warm. Of course, your engine size should determine the strength of your catalyst mixture.

Good luck.

Hi Andy,

I don't know how efficient your HHO Generator is, so I can't comment on how strong of a catalyst mix you can use. Potassium Hydroxide is the one you want to use for your temperatures in Canada. The stronger the mix the lower your freezing point will be.

Thank You
