Brown's Gas is a pressurized mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gases. It should be especially distinguished from Rhodes Gas, which is a non pressurized mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gases. Both gases should be distinguished from oxyhydrogen, which is also a non pressurized mixture of hydrogen and oxygen, but is specifically mixed just prior to combustion. These three distinct methods of production give each gas respectively different properties.
Main Properties Edit
- Produced in a common ducted electrolyzer
- Substantially pressurized upon combustion
- Very low radiant heat upon combustion
The Main Difference Between oxyhydrogen, Brown's Gas, and Rhodes Gas Edit
The main factors that determine which gas is produced is the design of the electrolyzer, the extent of pressurization prior to utilization, and the degree of stoichiometric proportioning.
