Abstract : Method and apparatus for mixing hydrogen and oxygen as a noncombustionable mixture of gases which avoids the hazard of a combustible mixing interface are disclosed as comprising a pair of cylinders which timely contains a water solvent within which said hydrogen and oxygen are respectively dissolved under pressurized and refrigerated conditions, in accordance with a predetermined program of operations. Then, the gas-saturated water of one of said cylinders is mixed with that of the other, thereby causing the gases therein to be mixed within the mixed water. The resultant gaseous mixture is subsequently separated from said water mixture, dried, and stores as a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gases. (Author)
