Fill it up!

Look up the word, "plasma" and I don't mean blood...

Nothing exactly new here... I used to use a plasma torch when I was a chemist 30+ years ago...

It was the only practical option one could use in cutting and shaping Pyrex glass...

What's new is the following: Although the technology Klein uses - electrolysis - has been around for decades, he said it's the form of gas that comes out of his electrolyzer and the characteristics of the gas that set his hydrogen technology apart.

Klein's gas is two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. Sound familiar? Yep, it's water.

Electrolysis is a process that uses an electrical charge in water to separate the hydrogen from the oxygen. But coming out of Klein's gas generator, the H2O 1500 electrolyzer, it's not water, he said. Klein, president of Hydrogen Technology Applications Inc., calls it HHO, or the brand name Aquygen.

"You get a huge energy response," Klein said. "But this gas is very, very safe."


Klein should be applauded for his manipulation of well known technology and making it practical...

What I will say is that I don't agree that the gas in and of itself is safe...

Anytime you have any sort of gas consisting of molecules with some electrons stripped from it, it will be extremely reactive which could be something to consider...
