  • Electrochemical Hydrisation of a Metal Hydride

    So a device that i've been working on the theory of i feel is ready to release the general principle to the public. The device concerned will REVOLUTIONIZE the Hydrogen on demand industry. It concerns the Electrochemical Hydrisation of a Metal Hydride. Now those of you who have read my post's know of the Electron Diffusion theory. So Imagine an electrolysis cell who's power source is based on the application of Ultra-Short pulse widths and visualize one electrode as Nickel. This is the positive electrode. Now, when it comes to Electrolysis certain constants are at play. The greater the number of at-rest "free" electrons in the electrode means a lower resistance. A lower resistance means better efficiency of electricity into dissociation (less energy towards ohmic heat). Another constant is that the main electrode to face oxidation is the positive electrode, as very few corrosive chemical reactions take place directly at the negative electrode (due to only hydrogen being produced there). These constants can be manipulated to aid in certain phenomena. This is the basis of the device in question here.

    The theory is based in Virtual breakdown of charged ions in the water. If the negative electrode is made of a Metal Hydride alloy (that resists chemical corrosion) such as LaNi,Co,Al alloy (produced in the same way MHNi-Ni-O-OH electrodes are made in NiMH batteries). This alloy is capable of adsorbing and absorbing H2 into the metal lattice. If virtual break down is occurring to liberate H2 at the Negative electrode, and the negative electrode is made of a sensitive MH alloy, instead of H2 bubbling off, the application of electricity will cause "charge pressure" to force H2 into the MH electrode. While this "charging" is happening the O2 is simply bubbling off to atmosphere. When the current is turned off and all valves closed, the device will hold the H2 in solid state indefinitely (rate of leakage is less than 0.01% per day) H2 is recovered out of the system by heating the outside of the device with a 10-40° differential from charging temperature (should be room temp) The greater the heat input, the faster the H2 will desorb out of the MH electrode. The H2 coming out can be dried (MgSulhpate, silica, etc) and used directly, or sent (without the need of a pump as the H2 is under high pressure already) into MH storage tanks for potable use (away from the electrolysis unit). This method provides a way to generate H2, purify it up to 99.9999%, pressurize the H2 up from 1 bar up to 15 bar without a pump or mechanical compressor, and stores the H2 temporarily until needed. The fuel is only water and electricity, where the device acts to consoledate the system and provide an energy density of 300mAh\g of MH alloy in the electrode (as stored hydrogen). Not a lot of storage, but enough to provide on-demand pure hydrogen to a bigger storage tank that is being drained through use. Absolutely balmy the applications of this!!

    we build it the exact same way as our current prototype design, just change the electrode materials. But keep the shape and everything else
