Characteristic features of calculations of hydrogen generators

Hydrogasdynamic in Technological Processes

Among the methods of hydrogen generation that are economically sound for autonomous customers is the silikol method. The technique of calculation of the cylinder gas generator circuit is given. The restrictions imposed on the flow velocity in a three-phase reacting system are considered. It is established that the reaction rate in the circuit as a dissipative structure is in direct correlation with the change in the Gibbs energy.
