Is Hydrogen Safe? CVHHO’s Cells Safe?

Hydrogen has been proven to be a safe fuel. It has also shown to be as safe, if not safer, than other flammable fuels including gasoline, diesel, or natural gas.

With any fuels, safe handling and knowledge of hydrogen’s chemical, physical, and thermal properties should always be considered. Our advanced Catalyst Technology possesses numerous safety features to ensure proper production, delivery, and usage. CVHHO, Inc.’s tanks are under minimal pressure with shutoff sensors to ensure no collection of Catalyst Gases.  Our "REV 1.0" regulates the current in our system to make certain the system cannot “run away.” Additional safety shut offs are integrated to assure Catalyst Gas is not continuously produced while the engine is shut off. Water level is also important. Should the amount of water in the tank ever reduce below a certain quantity, the system will shut down in order to prevent damage.

Further, if hydrogen ever leaked, it dissipates rapidly into the atmosphere, without polluting, recombining with the atmosphere air. In fact, hydrogen rises twice as fast as helium and six times faster than natural gas (roughly 45 mph). Hydrogen is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, but it does appear similar to a white cloudy vapor. Natural gas is also odorless, colorless, and tasteless but the  industry added a flammable sulfur-containing odorant called methyl mercaptan. This allows natural gas to be detectable by people.

CVHHO, Inc.'s Catalyst Technology is an advanced Hydrogen On Demand.

We do not store any hydrogen, which drastically reduces any risk to you or your truck(s).

The fire that destroyed the Hindenburg in 1937 gave hydrogen a misleading reputation. Hydrogen was used to keep the airship buoyant and was initially blamed for the disaster. An investigation by Addison Bain in the 1990s provided evidence that the airship's fabric envelope was coated with reactive chemicals, similar to solid rocket fuel, and was easily ignitable by an electrical discharge. The Zeppelin Company, builder of the Hindenburg, has since confirmed that the flammable, doped outer cover is to be blamed for the fire. Finally, of the 97 passengers on board the Hindenburg, 35 did not survive due to jumping from the blimp. The remainder of the passengers survived because they stayed on board. 

Safety Matters

If Hydrogen is so safe, why is there a Hydrogen Bomb?

The most common type of hydrogen is from the isotope Protium. The hydrogen bomb technology used a much more rare and explosive hydrogen isotope called Tritlum. The superb intense heat from the bomb detonation of a nuclear fission bomb and the Trirlum hydrogen isotope are required to induce the nuclear fusion reaction, which creates a hydrogen bomb.

It is very important to understand that there are various qualities of hydrogen. A hydrogen molecule contains 26 different properties.  Slight changes within those molecules can create a higher or lower quality. (Similar to a gas station, you have a choice of a variety of fuels: unleaded regular, unleaded plus, unleaded premium, high octane, or even diesel). CVHHO, Inc.’s Catalyst System generates a combination Ortho Hydrogen and Ortho Oxygen for superior performance while requiring less amp energy draw on the alternator.
