How to prepare the operating electrolyte for the hydrogen carbon-cleaning machine?
To gently remove carbon deposits from the inner surfaces of the combustion engine, catalyst, EGR valve, DPF, and other exhaust components, ANTISMOG machine generates large amounts of hydrogen and oxygen gas mix. The hydrogen-oxygen mix is produced from water, using the electrolysis process. The ANTISMOG machine requires good quality electrolyte for its electrolyser cell to work efficiently. To prepare the electrolyte, mix 14.5 litres (3.8 Gallons US) of distilled water with 2 kg (4.4 lbs) of high-purity potassium hydroxide (KOH) flakes.
What is electrolyte
An electrolyte is a substance that produces an electrically conducting solution when dissolved in water. All ANTISMOG machines use a solution of potassium hydroxide (KOH) in distilled water as electrolyte.
💡 NOTE: You may receive the electrolyte already premixed. If your electrolyte came as a premixed solution, feel free to skip this section, or keep it for future reference in case you need to mix your own electrolyte.
⚠️ ATTENTION! Always pour the distilled water in a suitable reservoir FIRST, then add KOH flakes. Reversing the order may cause an uncontrolled violent chemical reaction.
To prepare the electrolyte, mix 14.5 litres (3.8 Gallons US) of distilled water with 2 kg (4.4 lbs) of high-purity potassium hydroxide (KOH) flakes.
Add the KOH flakes to the distilled water slowly, while constantly mixing the solution. The resulting solution will heat up.
🥽 WARNING: The KOH flakes and the KOH water solution (electrolyte) are corrosive. The solution vapours may cause nose and throat irritation if inhaled. The liquid electrolyte may cause burns if comes in contact with skin. When preparing the electrolyte, ensure the work area is well ventilated, and use standard lab personal protective equipment (PPE): lab coat, long trousers, fully enclosed footwear, suitable eyewear and rubber gloves.
