Water, Fuel


Hydrogen is the future scope of Energy as the prices of fossil fuels is increases day by day. The main source of hydrogen is water. Hydrogen production will be done by alkaline water electrolyser using direct electricity. An acrylic box of 160 mm × 120 mm × 120 mm is used as reactor body. A set of 5 SS electrodes on anode as well as on cathode of size of 85 mm × 100 mm × 2 mm are connected to power supply and joined to a SS plate by welding it with the other plates. Two Plastic casings of size of 65 mm × 100 mm × 100 mm are used to capture the processed gases generated from anode and cathode. The solution of 27.5% by weight of KOH solution which works as an electrolyte is fed with water from the bottom of the reactor. There are mainly two types of electrolysers were used: A) Two separate chambers with two separator wall and 10 mm gap between them and, B) Two separate chambers with one common separator wall of size of only 8 mm. The generated hydrogen is then fed to the stove by maintaining proper pressure and flow. The oxygen is left to the surrounding. From this process 98.8% pure hydrogen is generated.
