No Power Transformer
An important difference between the ER 1150 Water Torch series-cell electrolyzer design, and most other commercially available 'traditional' electrolyzers is that our design lacks a power inductive transformer.

Electrolyzer cells are 2 volts each, traditionally requiring a transformer to step down voltage and step up amperage. Example: a traditional 1200 watt 'short-cell' electrolyzer would transform 240 volts at 5 amps to 3.2 volts (the extra 1.2 volts is required by the rectifier) at 375 amps. This produces 375 amps worth of Brown's Gas.

Inductive transformers are quite noisy, making conversation difficult. Transformers emit a lot of heat. Transformers weigh hundreds of pounds. Transformers are expensive, costing hundreds or thousands of dollars. Transformers are big, needing extra room in the enclosure.

For the series-cell design we line up a series of 120 cells at two volts each, allowing the Water Torch to be plugged directly into wall voltage. The series-cell design allows the use of high voltage and low amperage; making the size, weight and cost of the electrolyzer drop dramatically.

The series-cell design allows elimination of the transformer and the elimination of the fan to cool the transformer and the energy the fan took to run. The heat and noise of the transformer are symptoms of lost electricity (inefficient electrical coupling and induction). We can now turn that electricity directly to producing Brown's Gas.

The series-cell design turns nearly all the electricity taken from the wall into gas production silently and with very little waste heat. Series-cell design allows simple, inexpensive, compact size that is light-weight.

Now it should be remembered that AMPERAGE makes Brown's Gas, not voltage. Again, the series-cell proves superior. It turns out that the amount of gas made by the series-cell electrolyzer is the product of the number of cells multiplied by the amperage flowing through all the cells in series. So 120 cells times 5 amps gives us 600 amps worth of gas! We have nearly twice the gas with the series-cell than when we'd used the transformer with the traditional short cell, because the electricity previously wasted as heat is now used to make gas. We have several other innovations that further increase the efficiency of the gas production so that we literally produce the same volume of Brown's Gas using less than half of the electrical power.

Capacitive Power Control
This innovation is a major factor that makes our series-cell design superior to traditional electrolyzers. Use of capacitors as efficient amperage limiting devices is based on our Energy Conserver research. We use capacitors to limit the amperage going into the ER 1150 Water Torch. This allows simple, inherent, absolute control over the amperage that the machine can take from the wall. No electronics are needed and we've solved the traditional problem of amperage run-away caused by hot electrolyte temperatures.

Simple, Powerful, Efficient Electronic Sensors and Controls
Because we use the series-cell design, with high voltage and low amperage, our electronics can be simple, small, lightweight, inexpensive, yet tough and reliable.

This is only one example of the many reasons that higher voltage, lower amperage electronics are superior.

The diodes of a full wave bridge rectifier are MUCH less expensive when you only need a low amperage rating. Rectifiers (diodes) each have a "voltage drop" across them of about 0.6 Volt. When you multiply this voltage by the amperage going through the diode, you get the wattage wasted in the diode. This wasted wattage shows up as heat.
