Hydrogen / Hydrocarbon Spark Gap / Arc Gap
Thanks to Cip for the 3" tubing!
Hydrogen or Hydrocarbon gas spark gap - with water cooled heat sinks.
Upper Gap electrode, tungsten carbide, .371" diameter, .032" feed through hole
(Calypso Waterjet nozzle - Ingersoll Rand model)
Bottom electrode, 3/4" diameter tungsten with exhaust holes for oxygen
Mica insulating washer in place...
Exhaust holes for combustion products, heavier oxygen sinks
Sik covered wire "wick". The wick restricts the flow of the liquid
(alcohol, turpentine) yet draws the liquid slowly, like a slow siphon...
From bottom to top, we have exhaust, bottom electrode, mica washer, top electrode, water cooling section (with finned heatsink), hydrocarbon reservoir.
Components so far...
