Mythos Knallgasflamme – So heiß ist sie wirklich! | Subtitled


Today I am going to show you the properties of my oxyhydrogen torch in a litle bit more detail. The Oxyhydrogen torch is a stoichiometric mixture of oxygen and hydrogen. Of course it only burns to water. I produce it by using my drycell, however, the small wetcell will aso do the job. I already made videos about both of the cells here on youtube. Wich stands out pretty fast is the extremely long and slim shape of the torch. This is so because there is no need for the flame to expand in order to get oxygen from the air. Also the flame does not radiate heat in form of infrared at all. It is possible to hold your hand extremly close above the flame. this is even more spectacular when I dip the flame into normal salt. The Sodium ions are responsible for the characteristc colour. The cell I use in this video consumes around 720 watts of energy. This is also the maximum amout of energy which might be contained insit the flame. Due to power losses 500 watts are more realistic. However, I am going to calculate the exact efficiency of my cell in a future video. Due to those facts, the power of the flame is quite low. So it would be impossible to heat a forge like the one I previously built using this torch. However, the heat it puts out is extremly concentrated. Also when using a thermal imaging camera you can see that there really is not much heat radiation at all. At the nozzle I measure about 100 degrees celcius, where at the tip I only have 30 degrees. The noocle itself is the hottest part where I measure 130 degrees. I believe that the camera is only measuring the temperature of the water steam produced by the flame. Therefore, to get the real temperature, it is a lot smarter to try and melt some different materials. Stones are no problem at all for the HHO torch. This one melts into some dark glass like tiny spheres. I also tried flint, which consists out of SiO2. I am not quite sure if the big one really is flint, however, its possible to make sparks with it. Also if you want me to show the proces of making fire with these, let me know. Both seem to contain water and crack when striking it with the torch, however I managed to melt the big one into some white drops. Of course salt does also melt, as previously shown in my fused-salt-electrolysis-video. Also salt contains a lot of water, which is, why you need to heat it up gentle. They tend to jump out of the container quite explosively. When its warmed up a little it melts very easy. A steel ball melts very easy as well. Also it throws the typical sparks. To end with I also tried a tungsten wire, which melts over 3400 degrees. It started glowing extremely bright, with a slight greenish tint in terms of flame colour. The brightness makes sense, begause it was used in old light bulbs as the glowing wire. The greenish tint is very badly picked up by the camera. Also it produces quite some smoke, which might be one of the tungsten oxides. The wire doesnt melt at all, it just gets eroded away, leaving a very thin and pointy wire. So the flame does not reach the 3400 degrees in order to melt thungsten. So the flame is indeed quit hot, probably up to 3000 degrees. However, it is never as hot as some people tell. 6000 degrees would just be too insane. However, it is still quite useful for melting small stuff and welding small pieces. Because I never showed you before, I am now going to try the catalytic conversion from the gas to water. You just need to slightly heat up the catalytic converter using a lighter and then point the gas stream onto it. The HHO gas burns without any flame just on the surface. normaly the catalytic converter burns unburnt fuel NOx or CO in a car. Also I already tested the torch in helium athmospere to see how materials which would normally burn in air would react. However, they all react the same as if in air. Probably they mixed some oxygen with the cheap party helium I bought, or the oxygen comes from the water from the flame. Leave me a comment if you kow a little bit more. I tried stuff like iron woll, coal or wood. Now I just show you some footage of a burning magnesium pencil sharpener. I lighted it using my torch. Think I need to share, because it looks quite awesome. Thank you for watching! Comments and likes are appreciated, Also feel free to subscribe, if you like my content. See you next time. (Its gonna be awesome 🙂

  1. Cool! Vielen Dank Herr Freizeitflugsphäre!!!!

  2. Endlich wieder videos von dir👍

    Deine videos werden auch immer besser respekt

  3. Great video! Thank you so much for the subtitles!

  4. Die katalytische Verbrennung ist ja wirklich sehr cool. Für mehr Hitze holen wir uns dann einfach ein bissl Dicyanacetylen ausm Labor, dann sind die 6000K drinnen. Dass das Wolfram in der Flamme spitz wird hat auch nen Nutzen, so kannst du WIG Nadeln schärfen, wenn du nix zum schleifen hast. Das Helium aus dem Baumarkt enthält irgendwas um die 5% Sauerstoff, damit keiner erstickt und weil Helium immer teurer wird. Selbst wenn reines drinnen wäre, würde es auch nicht lang in der Box bleiben. He Atome sind so winzig, dass die soagr ziemlich schnell durch Stahl diffundieren. Argon oder Stickstoff sind sicher viel besser und billiger.

  5. „Habe hier einen WolframdRRRaht, der hat einen Schmelzpunkt von über 3400 GRRRad!" Die Betonung war wichtig, damit es sich auch richtig reimt!

    Spaß, interessantes Video wie immer 😀

  6. Hmm…
    Du könntest probieren den Sauerstoff abreagieren lassen oder ein anderes Schutzgas nehmen (evtl. CO2, N, Ar, H <– riskant bei Sauerstoffleck). Ansonsten nicht abreagierenden Sauerstoff testen.

    Würde mich brennend interessieren wie die Stoffe unter Schutzatmosphäre schmelzen oder vielleicht sogar reagieren!

  7. 😳😳😳 ich bin baff, danke für dieses spannende und informative Video – Wahnsinn, richtig guter Wahnsinn- also genial!!! LG Ingo

  8. Nettes Video. Was hast du vor die Kamera gehalten, um die hellen Szenen so stark abzublenden?

  9. Qualität steigt immer mehr! Sehr gut, weiter so

  10. Interesting experiment, thanks for sharing. Subs are useful.

  11. Interessantes video! Ich würde mich sehr über ein video mit den Feuersteinen freuen!

  12. Love the video, perhaps you can pinpoint the temperature of the flame by heating the tungsten wire while measuring the temperature of the wire with your thermal imaging camera?

  13. Probier mal mit den Gas einen notstromaggregat zu betreiben

  14. Schönes Video , macht Lust das Thema HHO wieder aufzunehmen und Edelstahl Arestoren in Serie zu bauen

  15. Thank you for your video. What are you specialization? Sorry for my question, but it is really intresting for me)

  16. Tolles Video!
    Gut zu wissen, dass der Wolframdraht in der HHO-Flamme nicht schmilzt.

  17. Perhaps this is a translation error, but watts are units of power. Energy units are Joules which is one watt dissipated over a period of one second. 720 watts of energy makes no sense. I think you mean 720 watts of power.

  18. Seitdem die Exit-Bags (Suizidmaske) bekannt wurden, dürfte ziemlich jedem Partyzylinder Sauerstoff beigemischt sein.

  19. Hast du schonmal versucht damit ultrahocherhitzten Wasserdampf herzustellen und damit eine Turbine anzutreiben?

  20. Das Wolfram schmilzt nicht es verdampft ! auch beim legieren mit Wolfram arbeitet man mit Diffusion !

  21. Füll eine umgedrehte Schüssel mir Helium und hebe eine kerze hinein . Geht sie aus ist weniger Sauerstoff im Helium als zum Atmen nötige…

  22. Über die Dichte kannst du es auch Herausfinden wie rein dein Helium ist. Wie Archimedes mit der Krone
    Wird allerdings ein aufwendiger versuchs Aufbau
