HHO Safety Guidlines

Hydrogen Safety

HHO Safety Should Not Be Overlooked
Hydrogen On Demand Is Safe When Handled Correctly

Hydrogen Generator Safety #1 - Only On When The Engine Is RUNNING

Your hydrogen generator must only operate when the vehicles engine is running. Your engine burns the HHO gas as the generator is producing it. We have a gentleman in our community that built his own generator and wired it on his car incorrectly. He figured if he wired it to only came on, when the key was on, all would be safe. Big Mistake! After leaving the key in the "On" position overnight, he went to start his vehicle in the morning. The battery was dead. Without realizing it was the generator that had drained his battery, he jump started his vehicle. Kaboom! He blew his intake to pieces. Lesson to be learned; Please obtain voltage from a source such as the fuel pump or oil pump. Your hydrogen generator manufacturer should include instructions for this.

Remember this is Hydrogen On Demand, you are not storing it. The HHO gas should be aspirated directly to the engine intake process while the engine is in operation, thereby avoiding dangerous accumulation.

Tight Hose Connections

Tight Hose Connections are essential when installing your hydrogen generator system. You don't want HHO gas congregating under your hood, it could be dangerous. Make sure all of your connections are tight with no leaks. Besides you want all the gas going into your engine to help burn your fuel more efficiently

Making It Go BOOM!

It may be tempting and you see it alot on You Tube etc.to ignite the HHO gas. However, putting a flame to the end of the hose where your HHO gas exits, can be very hazardous. HHO gas is more flammable than gasoline about 2.5 times more, and it makes a very loud noise. It's amazing how little it does take to permanently damage your ears. Not to mention the possibility of damaging your generator or other components.

Placement Of Generator

NEVER place the generator in the cab of your vehicle or trunk area. Your HHO system needs ventilation. If it were to leak it could emit gases or could leak harmful fluids.

Protect Your Engine

A fuse should always be installed between your generator and power source,a fuse will protect you from electrical shorts and possible wires burning. A fuse will also protect your hydrogen generator from getting too hot from high amp usage. Bubbler tanks in between your generator and the air intake are essential for neutralizing catalyst contaminants. Also it will protect your generator from flashbacks. It is always easier to replace a bubbler tank than a generator. For good HHO safety you should never rely on a check valve alone for flashback protection.

Handling Potassium Hydroxide (KOH, Potash)

When handling potassium hydroxide always wear protective clothing to avoid chemical burns. Wear gloves, goggles, long sleeves and pants. Always work in a well ventilated area, away from children and pets. Keep a spray bottle of distilled vinegar near by when handling potassium hydroxide. Distilled vinegar will neutralize KOH. Apply the vinegar to any part of your skin that potassium Hydroxide comes in contact with. You should always wear goggles, if it does splash in your eye immediately flush with water thoroughly.
