Abstract:

The present invention overcomes drawbacks experienced with some of the prior art by providing an electrolytic oxygen hydrogen generator which has high efficiency anode cathode surface areas small interelectrode spacing and a low inter-electrode ionic resistance that results in lower operating temperatures and higher efficiencies than is presently available. This is accomplished by designing and electrolytic generator which compromises a cylindrical housing, top and bottom end caps which seal the end portions of the housing, and an electrolyte solution filling a substantial portion of the housing.
