Energy production through hydrogen combustion
The results show that no combustion took place for hydrogen foam bubbles that were less than 4mm in diameter. However, as the bubble size increased beyond 4 mm, combustion occured, with increasingly larger flames as the bubble diameter increased. When the size of the bubbles were more than 18mm, the combustion became explosive.
|Hydrogen bubble size||Combustion observed|
|Less than 1mm||No combustion|
|2 to 3 mm||No combustion|
|4 to 6 mm||Mild combustion|
|8 to 15 mm||Combustion with large flames|
|18 to 25mm||Explosive combustion with large flames|
Suitably qualified persons are required to handle combustible gases and pressurized storage tanks. Safety goggles should be worn at all times. Fire safety precautions should be taken at all times.
