    i should say this post has nothing to do with overunity/energy for free/making
    such devices
    i have a quantity of hho (browns gas) an exremely explosive gas
    i need to transfer it from its storage tank to another vessel (not a combustion engine!)
    is there any danger of the air pump motor igniting the gas?
    i dont know how these small motors work. as these small motors turn--do
    they create sparks?

    heres a small selection of popular pumps on the market
    http://www.ebay.com/bhp/aquarium-air-pump

    any advice appreciated

    I'm sure there are safe pumps somewhere, but this activity is every bit as dangerous as some specifically banned topics here, so I demur.

    I will ask the moderators to make a judgement call on whether to lock this thread.

    Seriously, I would dare to transfer pure hydrogen, but I wouldn't touch HHO, and I'm good at this sort of thing.

    Yes, there is a great big danger of making a BOOM! Or of burning down your house or apartment.

    You need a specific classification of pump. Both electrical classification and mechanical classification.

    My first question, why do you have it.
    And, how do you plan to get rid of it?

    i havent yet bought the air pump. i thought to research thoroughly
    before buying anything
    when i go to the shop to select a model, i should read the label on
    the pump ---they dont give too much information. and also whats
    written on the packaging box and any text that might come with the pump
    like psi, volts and type of motor used
    what should i watch out for?
    if theres a special type of pump which guarantees no sparks---i will get it
    but i dont know which type
    you ask
    My first question, why do you have it.
    And, how do you plan to get rid of it?
    do you mean the gas?

    AAC forums will not indulge in discussion of any circuit or activity that has the potential to shock, electrocute, harm or otherwise put lives in danger.

    Discussion on HHO gas is out of bounds.

    Please do not attempt to revive this discussion.
