Is Our HHO Kit Safe?

Hydrogen gas made by a HHO kit packs quite a punch. Over 3900 ft/lbs of power. It is explosive too just like gasoline, nitrous, nitro, pure oxygen, dynamite, etc… It is all explosive. A spark and that could be it for any of the mentioned combustable’s above. Gasoline has a unseen vapour to it which can ignite and flash back to the original source. Nitro is extremely volatile and too much shaking can or will cause a explosion. If ANY gasses are under pressure when a spark happens that makes for even more of a boom. A HHO kit must be safe.

HHO Kit; Is Hydrogen Gas Explosive?

In one word yes, to that too. A simple spark which happens to exposed hydrogen gas will cause some type of explosive reaction depending how much gas is present. The pressure which the volume of hho gas is under also dictates the force of explosion which could have. It is really no different than gasoline, nitrous injection aftermarket car kits, or any other type of combustible fuel which is under pressure or not though. It all depends on the amounts of gas present or volume of build up at or around the spark which happens. If any gas builds up in the interior chambers of your motor before ignition or spark that definitely could cause damage to the motor in the form of blown seals and gaskets, possible throttle plate damage.

Is our Hydrogen generator or HHO kit safe?

We think they are, you be the judge. We have several safe guards built right into our HOD generator which makes this HHO kit a safe installation on your car. The biggest problem with hydrogen is build up of excess gas should the generator be running when the vehicles engine or motor is not. If there is a accident, one could agree, the device producing hydrogen needs to shut down instantaneously. Otherwise that could cause quite a explosion. A 2nd problem is a hho kit that “produces BUT also stores” gas onboard the vehicle before it is used by the motor. This is also could turn out to be a rather explosive/potentially explosive option.

Our HHO kit or hydrogen generators plug “right into” the vacuum of any vehicles motor. When operational, the negative vacuum draw on the water/hydrogen reservoir of the HHO kit causes a constant pull or draw on the gasses in this chamber. They do not collect inside the HHO generator reservoir, therefore, as there is always a constant flow or depletion of hydrogen gasses contained or formed in the reservoir. Typically the hydrogen generator installed on the 1.5 litre 2003 Toyota echo sedan pictured on this website produces no more than 300 mls of hydrogen per minute. So lets break that down into 5 second intervals. 300 divided by 12 equals 25 millilitres of gas; produced and available for use by the vehicles engine over a 5 second period. Further divide this down and it means 5 millilitres of gas per second is produced by the generator. Not enough for a explosion in a short span of time. Not only that the, gasses are contained in a sealed and vacuum tight reservoir device. They wont leak out from the device seals and fittings should the device produce HHO gas when the motor is NOT running over a short period of time. But even a short period of time when the generator runs and the motor does not could mean the gasses find there way into the vacuum intake of the motor. Takes a while but this could happen. Our HHO kit is safe.

This is why our HHO kit is quite safe

This is why our HHO kit quite safe. We have a vacuum sensor safety switch installed on all our hydrogen generator, HHO kit. Our vacuum switches are “top” quality and made ONLY for FGS products. What the vacuum safety switch does is “sense” or detect that there is engine or motor vacuum present and allows the unit to operate under this condition. Once the vacuum is no longer present as the vehicles engine is shut down or not working the vacuum safety switch immediately shuts down production of hydrogen gas which the unit produces or makes available to the car. No other HHO kit has this feature.

The combination of the small amount of hydrogen gas a vacuum type HHO kit needs to produce, to have a positive performance effect on your vehicle is very miniscule. It can be, when it comes to a vacuum type gas generator device, as the negative draw on the unit ALWAYS provides a constant source of hydrogen to your vehicles motor. Unlike a gravity fed HHO kit where the car needs to be in motion to have some amount of hydrogen gas drawn into the motor. Since the vacuum draw on the unit really powers it, once the motor stops producing vacuum the safety switch senses “no motor vacuum or operation” and immediately shuts down the hydrogen gas producing function of the core.

Fuel Genie Systems hydrogen generators are designed with your safety and peace of mind in thought. Our HHO kit does not store hydrogen gas onboard and shut down immediately, upon loss of vehicle or motor vacuum.
