Oxyhydrogen is a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gase especially produced in an independently ducted electrolyzer. Such an electrolyzer is specifically designed to separate product hydrogen and oxygen gases upon production. Oxyhydrogen is typically used as a torch fuel, but other applications are viable. Oxyhydrogen is volitile, and has very different properties than Rhodes Gas and Brown's Gas. Oxyhydrogen has a high temperature output, similar to that of a pure hydrogen flame, but slightly higher due to a more complete stoichiometric balance.

Main Properties Edit

  • Produced in an independently ducted electrolyzer
  • Especially not pressurized as a mixture. If pressurization is utilized the gases are independently pressurized
  • Mixed just prior to combustion
  • Extreme radiant heat upon combustion

The Main Difference Between oxyhydrogen, Brown's Gas, and Rhodes Gas Edit

The main factors that determine which gas is produced is the design of the electrolyzer, the extent of pressurization prior to utilization, and the degree of stoichiometric proportioning.
