Titanium Plate HHO Generators - Designs, Concepts and Proper Application

Hey, Dave here.

Ok everyone, here's the deal. Although there is still some testing to be done with the latest concept of using MMO (Mixed Metal Oxide) Titanium Substrate in an HHO Generator, in this post I am going to provide you all with as much up-to-date information as possible about the current methods being used for building a proper MMO titanium hydrogen generator.

I am taking the time to do this by my own free will, and I don't have much information resources to work with right now, so if I happen to post something incorrect or if my nomenclature happens to be incorrect, feel free to politely and properly correct my mistakes. I am by no means a physics guru or scientist of any sort, however I do try to be as thorough and accurate as possible while gathering and posting the information that I share with everyone concerning this amazing technology. So here we go!

Information To Build An MMO Titanium Plate HHO Generator

Whats so special about Titanium?

These new Titanium Substrate HHO Cells produce a more pure form of HHO gas. Also, unlike Stainless Steel, Titanium will not leach hexavalent chromium during electrolysis, which has been a major concern for HHO enthusiasts from the beginning. Here's a quote from EletrikRide about the superiority of Titanium HHO Generators over Stainless Steel:

"Chromium ions´╗┐ in the HHO gas of Stainless Steel act to accelerate the decay of orthohydrogen to parahydrogen. Orthohydrogen is 4x more reactive than parahydrogen. Titanium cells make no chromium ions or other ions. That is why the HHO gas from a Titanium Cell is more reactive."

Most of the information here is sourced from Smack's videos (EletrikRide) on YouTube and his website SmacksBoosters.110mb.com. So basically, this is a short, written version of what he has posted so far about his Titanium Substrate HHO Cell, which does work and it works very well. I'm not trying to kiss anyone's butt here, but the guy knows what he's doing. He has an overall goal in mind which I totally agree with,  Gensets in every vehicle.

Personally, I interpret his Genset idea as; An Electric Hybrid Vehicle with an HHO Boosted / Gasoline (or E85 Ethanol ) Fueled Generator to charge the battery bank, possibly using the new lead acid batteries that hold 4x more charge... but I think he also intends to apply other means as well to create a "Super Hybrid" vehicle with insane MPG, and hopefully, with good acceleration and top speed.

Titanium HHO Cell - Plates

By now you should know that the Cathode is the negative on an HHO cell, and the Anode is the positive. On a Titanium HHO Cell, the Cathode CANNOT be MMO coated! The cathode must remain bare titanium only, the coating will come off during electrolysis. Only the anode requires MMO Titanium Substrate material. This is the reason why people have experienced problems with their MMO Titanium HHO Cells having a very short life span.

At this time I am not exactly sure which is the best company to order your MMO Ti plates. I will ask EletrikRide and post that information on this blog when available.

Titanium HHO Cell - Electrolyte Mixture - KOH

Potassium Hydroxide (KOH) is the proper electrolyte to be used in an MMO Titanium Substrate HHO Cell. Potassium Hydroxide is used because it works the best with MMO coated titanium plates.

HHO Production and Technical Data - ( Smacktanium 7 Plate Series Cell Design )

In this section I just wanted to quickly throw down some of the performance data I gathered about the "Smacktanium" 7 PlateTitanium HHO Series Cell Design.

# Plates - 7
Plate Configuration - positive, neutral, neutral, neutral, neutral, neutral, negative

Plate Voltage - 3.5v DC per plate

Plate Spacing - 3/8 inch

Gasket Material - Neoprene

Avg. Amperage Draw - 0.5 amps per sq. inch ( avg. +/-12 amps total for Smactanium)

Avg. Operating Temperature =  +/- 120 Deg. F

Electrolyte To Water Ratio - 1/4 cup KOH per 2 Quarts of Distilled Water

Electrolyte PH - 3.5

HHO Gas Production MMW (Millimeters per Minute per Watt) - avg of about 3.5 MMW
NOTE: Keep in mind that Titanium Cell HHO Gas is about 2x more powerful than Stainless Steel Cell HHO Gas, because of the purity. So a Titanium HHO Cell at 3.5 MMW can be likened to a Stainless Steel HHO Cell at 7 MMW.

Does A Titanium HHO Cell Require A PWM And/Or EFIE? 

At the moment I cannot provide any cold hard data about whether or not you should use an EFIE with your Titanium HHO Cell, but I can you that a PWM is not as necessary with this type of material, due to the fact that a properly constructed (Isolated Water Flowing Configuration) and operated Titanium HHO Cell does not overheat! How cool is that? At 12 Amps DC, the water temperature will rise to about 120 degrees F, and then it will just kinda level off steady from there, even after hours of continuous operation.

Summary and Conclusions

Once again, I apologize that I cannot provide any step-by-step instructions to build a unit of this type. This is all the information I could gather at this time, so take it as is, and by all means head over to Smacks YouTube channel (EletrikRide) and ask him for further details. He is an open-source engineer and very willing to provide everyone with information about building Titanium Substrate HHO Generators. He is currently preparing to manufacture his new Titanium Substrate Series Cell Design for anyone who does not want to or cannot understand how to build their own.


Smack is currently raising money to get EPA certification for his Titanium HHO Cell Design. Many people (mainly oil-company agents) have been threatening him in attempt to thwart his research and his sharing open source information of his experiments and cell designs. Remember that practically every HHO researcher is nothing more than a backyard mechanic, using what little funding and equipment they have available to make progress with HHO Technology.

So if you can spare an extra $5.00 or whatever, please take a moment to stop by his site and do the world and everyone in it a favor by donating to get his new design EPA certified so that everyone can enjoy this technology without government intervention.

Check his website at www.SmacksBoosters.110mb.com/smacktanium.html  to make a donation and read more information about his latest breakthrough in HHO cell design.

MMO Titanium HHO Series Cell - Videos

Below are EletrikRide's YouTube videos where he explains the specifics of his 7 Plate MMO Titanium Substrate, Circulating Series Cell, Dry Cell HHO Generator. (phew!)

(I apologize I could not get the videos to arrange properly.)

At this time, these videos are probably the only videos that contain open source information about this new leap in HHO Technology, and that provides you with actual technical data for a properly constructed MMO Titanium Substrate HHO Fuel Cell.

Video Proof - HHO Gas Mileage Increase - MPG Test

The following videos show an HHO Generator being tested on a gasoline engine home generator. The first video shows the Genset running on regular gasoline without any HHO injection at all. The HHO Generator is plugged directly into the Genset during the first test, but the hydroxy gas is being vented into atmosphere instead of being directed into the engine's carburetor.

The second video shows the Genset running while the HHO gas is injected directly into the engine's carburetor. Again, the HHO Generator is plugged directly into the gasoline generator during test #2. The final result is an increase of over 20% better gas mileage with Hydroxy gas.

Here is VIDEO PROOF that validates claims about HHO as a viable fuel.

HHO Generator Proof - Video #1

Test #1: HHO Gas is NOT injected - 1400W load ( HHO Generator turned on )

Results: 200ml gasoline in 6.53min = 30.61ml/min

HHO Generator Proof - Video #2

Test #2: 5.6 LPM of HHO gas - 1400W load ( HHO Generator turned on )

Results: 200ml gasoline in 8.18 min = 24.44 ml/min.

That is a 20.2% reduction in gasoline consumption.

This proves without a doubt that HHO can significantly improve gas mileage in an Internal Combusion Engine. Most users report an average of 20% to a high of about 130% with HHO injection, and numerous testing has revealed that hydroxy gas can reduce hydrocarbon emissions by as much as 20% or more in modern vehicle engines.

Recently many HHO enthusiasts have decided that it would be most efficient to use HHO gas as a Hybrid Fuel along side electric vehicle engines. When HHO gas is used in an engine that runs at a constant RPM the Genset motor can be adjusted to maximum fuel efficiency to provide clean energy to recharge the Hybrid vehicle battery system.

The REAL Truth About "HybridWaterPower" and Bob Volk - HHO Generator Plans

With so many different people selling "HHO Conversion" plans on the internet it can be hard to distinguish between which one's are scams and those that actually work. In this post I am going to discuss one HHO system in particular known as the Hybrid Water Power System, which is designed and produced by a man named Bob Volk out of Pleasant Hill, California but before I go into any details let me quickly explain what HHO Technology is about... just in case your new to the concept of "water fuel".

When gas prices struck an all time high during the spring and summer of 2008, a radical new concept for boosting vehicle MPG hit the market known as HHO Technology. At that particular time there we're many "water fuel" products available being offered by a variety of websites, the best of these particular HHO guides being Water4Gas and Gas4Free.

In the beginning, the first HHO designs were very poor in quality. This new concept of "Run Your Car With Hydrogen" was still in it's infancy and many of the HHO plans required you to build your hydrogen generator using wires and glass mason jars, which later turned out to be a very dangerous method for producing hydroxy gas. Many customers reported mis-haps and "close calls" from exploding mason jars and melting plastic.

The first HHO generators to hit the market were also very inefficient. Overheating and other phenomenon known as "Flashback" were quite common among users who built and installed these poorly designed hydrogen cells. Proper application was also difficult as people were having trouble dealing with the Vehicle Computer System, due to the fact that HHO can cause the O2 sensor in Electronic Fuel Injected vehicles to set off the check engine light, and in many cases it can cause the vehicle to use MORE fuel instead of less. Last but not least, these Mason Jar kits just didn't produce enough HHO gas to really make any improvement in vehicle MPG.

It wasn't until around late August of 2008 that Bob Volk made his 'HybridWaterPower' system available to the public, offering a new HHO Generator design that blasted the previous hydrogen generator designs out of the water. Bob Volk's new HHO plans created a sigh of relief among users looking for a practical way to apply HHO Technology safely and effecitvely to increase their vehicle's gas mileage.

Hybrid Water Power - The Design

If theres one thing that makes Bob Volk's product better than the rest, it would have to be his new electrolyzer design. His HHO Generator uses plates, not wires, to produce a VERY LARGE amount of HHO gas (up to 2 litres per minute!). The efficiency of Bob Volk's hydrogen cell make's it possible to significantly improve gas mileage without causing undue strain on the alternator and without overheating the HHO cell itself.

Not only is the HybridWaterPower system more efficient than others, but it's also the safest HHO Kit that the average person can build at home. If your an HHO enthusiast then you know that when it comes to producing HHO gas, the goal is to use less amps while producing more HHO. Bob Volk solved the problem of overheating with his new HHO cell by first; using PVC for the electrolyzer housing and second; using a cell plate stack that allowed for less heat transfer due to current leakage and more HHO production.

Bob Volk has also addressed the issue of dealing with the vehicle O2 sensors by offering valuable information in his ebook about a device known as an EFIE (Electronic Fuel Injection Enhancer). In his ebook, Bob Volk explains the method for "tricking" the vehicle computer sensors to think that no modification has been made to the vehicle. Tricking the vehicle computer is crucial to getting fuel economy improvements with HHO since the vehicle computer controls the amount of fuel being injected into the engine. Bob Volk was the FIRST researcher to solve this problem by introducing 2 new methods for dealing with the vehicle computer... the EFIE and another method which uses a device called an "O2 Sensor Extender".

Hybrid Water Power - Overall Product

Bob Volk also brought a new way of teaching people how to build thier own HHO kit by using video instructions along with his HHO manual. He took the entire project to a whole new level by offering 105 private videos showing his customers how to build, install, maintain and troubleshoot the HybridWaterPower HHO system. Before his product hit the market people were stuck with poorly designed ebooks that showed you how to build the HHO generator, but did not fully explain how to install or troubleshoot the device.

Until Bob Volk came along with his new HHO eBook and videos, many people experienced frustration and confusion while trying to apply this wonderful technology to improve their vehicle's gas mileage. The Hybrid Water Power system is the ONLY system that has achieved consistent MPG improvements ranging anywhere from 20% to 130% better MPG in both gasoline and diesel engine vehicles.

Bob Volk - Designer and Publisher of the HybridWaterPower System

Bob Volk of is not only an inventor and researcher of hydrogen hybrid applications, but he is also an Internet Entrepreneur and has started/co-founded many sites. His experience in marketing and web design allowed him to produce such a high-quality ebook to teach people how to build their own Hydrogen Generators to save on gas and lower emissions.

His company, Transitional Technologies LLC, is an actual HHO Hybrid Company dedicated to designing the best "DIY" HHO Kit instructions while providing customer support that is second to none. Bob Volk has been in the HHO business for over 10 years and will not hesitate to put skeptics and nay-sayers in their place when it comes to proving that HHO Technology is practical. When compared to other's selling "How to build a Hydrogen Generator" ebooks online, Bob Volk and his company are the leading edge in hydrogen hybrid technology.

Recently I sent an email to Bob asking if he could elaborate on why HHO gas is so effective when used in conjuction with modern Internal Combustion Engines to improve fuel economy and reduce hydrocarbon emissions.

Below is Bob Volk's reply to my email about why HHO is so effective:

"Its quite simple once you get your head around it. Torque is what does the work in a vehicle, not horsepower. If you can find a way to increase torque in an engine then you will increase the MPG of that engine, no exceptions."

"HHO increases thermal efficiency because of increased flame speed, more violent explosion, shorter burn time and increased cylinder pressure. Last but not least, HHO allows for a "lean burn" situation, where you can tune your vehicle to use less fuel by leaning out the air/fuel mix and allowing the HHO gas to make up for the lack of fossil fuel. Since HHO gas burns 10x faster than gasoline or diesel fuel, this is not very hard to achieve in a modern Internal Combustion Engine."

"If you increase cylinder pressure you will increase torque which means more
MPG. Increased flame speed also increases cylinder pressure which, once again, means more MPG. Shorter burn time means less heat transfer which means more mechanical power which, once again, gives you more MPG."

"Regardless of what all the Physics Guru's say.... these are the "laws of physics" for an ICE engine and I will stand behind HHO Technology and my product no matter how hard these skeptics and nay-sayers try
to give HHO and Hybrid Water Power a bad name."

(End Quote)

Well, there you have it. When compared to all the other HHO Guides out there, Bob Volk and his HybridWaterPower System are the leading edge when it comes to utilizing HHO Technology to improve vehicle fuel efficiency.

Thanks again to Bob Volk for creating the HybridWaterPower System and sharing his extensive knowledge of HHO Technology with the world, giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy this fascinating concept for improving gas mileage and lowering harmful emissions.
