Use for Direct Current Installations Only...

 

Caution; Do not throw away money on cheap made electrolyzer models, just labor itself of installing, is not worth the waste of your time... They will not handle High Amperes.  Not to mention, problems cheapy's do cause you, Such as tops burning off, jelly jars, melting tops of your car battery etc, or other important under the hood engine area items.  Do your installs properly for All tcHydros using the same table below....     Do not exceed trueCarpentry's amp ratings for each electrode rated type settup. Most tc1 models are rated at max 140 DC amperes.....  Use NEMA AC code table to transfer that rating to AC type currents , Using a AC ampere wire rating table in AC type installations.

Max DC Amp

Max recommended wire lengths are based on a 1/2 volt max drop over length of the wire. It you want to determine lengths based on a different drop, simply mulitiply the table value by the appropiate factor (example - if you want the values for a 1 volt drop, multiply table value by 2) If you want lengths for 6 volt or 24 volt systems, multiply listed amperage by 0.5 for 6 volt or by 2 for 24 volt, and then select the wire length from the table. "nr" means wire size is not recommended at selected current. To be extra extra safe, always choose one wire size larger in your applications.
