Exploding Water Vids - WITHOUT Hydrogen separation!!
« on: September 01, 2008, 09:14:18 PM »
This one is just 80ml (about 2.5 oz).

This one is with 750ml (about 24 oz). You MUST see the explosion at 27 seconds in slow motion. This is where mother nature says....hey, wait a minute....water is supposed to be steam at atmospheric pressure, and then violently and explosively changes the liquid water into steam at over 1600 times the volume!

Okay, still not convinced? Did you know that the worlds fastest dragster was actually water powered?

Here is how it works: "Moreover, the basic rocket is the essence of simplicity. The hot water rocket makes use of the fact that water, if kept under pressure, can be heated far beyond its normal boiling temperature of 212 ?F. For example in a container under 500 pounds per square inch pressure, water can be heated to some 475?F. If a hole is made in the container, the water will be forced out, a portion of it flashing into steam in escaping to the atmosphere. Inside the container, the water will also boil, and the steam so created will replace the water forced out and will tend to maintain the pressure. The escaping mixture of steam and water, if expanded through a suitable nozzle, will reach a velocity of about 1,500 feet per second. The reaction of this jet will drive a well built rocket to supersonic speed." to make a useful device??? Here's one thought, how about induction heating coils around diesel fuel injection lines? Think about it, the diesel injection system already works with pressures of 1500 psi on older systems, to 30,000 psi on newer systems. So, there is no need to worry about creating pressure, so all we have to do is heat the water just before injection, correct???

Please share your thoughts and vids.

not really a water arc topic but it is interesting

I always wanted to take an old (coal)steam engine and add induction heaters to heat the water to power it rather than coal... the idea is that the steam pressure would be enough to turn generators to power the heaters and make it self running and just needing to be topped up with water... the induction heaters would be inside an insulating material so would not lose as much heat and more heat would be transfered to the water than the coal

those old steam trains had lots of power, wouldnt it be nice to revive them with new technology to replace the new electric ones :D

@ Aka

Yea, couldn't find a great place for the topic.  It was either here, "Halfbaked", or "Other".  My concern is that the latter two don't get as much interest.

GLAD to hear that someone else has thought about adding Induction Heating to water!

By the way, just in case you don't fully understand the difference between regular steam and flash steam, here are a few great links.  If you have any links on it, please post here or pm me.

Thanks, Bobo

Hi Bobo,

Nice thinking...heres a link to wet your appetite.......

Now imagine ceramic fuel lines and induction heating of fuel........

What a cool idea.
