YBG History

YBG HISTORY | HHO Generator Research Professor Yull Brown

The truth about the heritage and YBG history is that  Brown’s Gas was introduced to solve the problem of how to replace the limited supply and expensive petroleum based fuels amid the spike in oil prices in the mid 1970’s.

This period of YBG’s history heralded in the entire explosion in solar and wind power applications and ignited the inventive spirit in man worldwide.

Based on his own humanitarian purposes and drive  Research Professor Yull  Brown was  faced with the task of popularizing his innovation of a stable hydrogen and oxygen gas product produced in his proprietary electolyzer from ordinary water and YBG’s history began.

YBG HistoryYBG History Yull Brown: Brown’s Gas earned its’ name not through the patenting of the patented Brown’s Gas Generator rather through Yull Brown’s genius creativity and promotional efforts to make widely known Brown’s Gas’s many documented and demonstrated properties and application potentialities to benefit humanity including its’ use as a fuel with none of the inherent instability of traditional mixtures of hydrogen and oxygen gases and its uniqueness as a clean non-polluting fuel source.

YBG History Yull Brown: Brown’s Gas is generated using electrolysis, a well known classical method for separating hydrogen and oxygen from water by running an electric current through it

Scientifically, when water (H2O) is converted back into its’ gaseous form prior to forming as a liquid water particle, the component gases are hydrogen and oxygen. Hydrogen burns easily and oxygen is needed to be present for anything to burn.  Unlike other forms of combustion, Brown’s Gas is not dependent on the outside atmosphere to burn, as oxygen is present in the gas itself.  Source: Publisher.


YBG History Yull Brown: Henry Cavendish (1766) was the first to recognize that hydrogen gas was a discrete substance,  and that it produces water when burned, the property for which it was later named.   Henry Cavendish was a British natural philosopher, scientist, and an important experimental and theoretical chemist and physicist. Cavendish is noted for his discovery of hydrogen or what he called “inflammable air”. He described the density of inflammable air, which formed water on combustion, in a 1766 paper “On Factitious Airs”. 

Antoine Lavoisier later reproduced Cavendish’s experiment and gave the element its name.

In Greek, hydrogen means “water-former”.

Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier was a French nobleman and chemist central to the 18th-century chemical revolution and had a large influence on both the history of chemistry and the history of biology.  He is widely considered in popular literature as the “father of modern chemistry”.  This label, however, is more a product of Lavoisier’s eminent skill as a self-promoter and underplays his dependence on the instruments, experiments, and ideas of other chemists.

Industrial production of hydrogen is mainly from steam reforming natural gas.  Most hydrogen is used near the site of its production site, the two largest uses being fossil fuel processing (like in hydrocracking) and ammonia production, mostly for the fertilizer market.

Brown’s Gas

YBG History Yull Brown: People fall into a common trap of labelling Brown’s Gas as a mixture of conventionally produced molecular hydrogen and oxygen in the proportion of 2:1.  Brown’s Gas is a distinctly new product.

The characteristics of Brown’s Gas are considerably different from that of the flame produced by conventional methods of combining (mixing) bottled hydrogen and oxygen gases.  Source: Publisher.

Brown’s Gas has two core characteristics, the first related to its flame when ignited in a blow torch, the second its’ observed ability to implode rather than the expected explosive characteristic of a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gases.

The gas has no fixed calorific value. This is based on the material to which Research Professor Yull Brown had directed the beam of the burning gas, and the temperatures it reached fluctuated from 120 to well over 6,000 degrees Celsius. This is comparable to the effect of the sun on Earth: if it shines on grass, it is easy to walk over it with bare feet. If, on the other hand, it burns on sand, it can be uncomfortably hot under the same sun – and no reasonable person would voluntarily stand on a tin roof sunned of the same radiation intensity!

Brown’s Gas Flame:

  1. The Brown’s Gas flame is variable in temperature and sublimates tungsten at 5,900 degrees Celsius which greatly exceeds a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gases that develops a temperature in the range between 2,210 degrees Celsius and 2,900 degrees Celsius.
  2. The temperature limit of the applied flame is governed by the element being heated.
  3. The flame can be tapered to a very fine application point without widespread dissemination of the applied heat.
Brown’s Gas Implosion:

When a volume of Brown’s Gas is ignited in an airtight chamber a low decibel “ping” is noticed and a gaseous volume reduction of approximately 1,859 times to one unit of water occurs constituting in fact the world’s fastest method for creating a partial vacuum enabling atmospheric pressure to be triggered as a power source.

The only technical scientific statements that Research Professor Yull Brown would ever approve to be made publicly about Brown’s Gas was that:


Brown’s Gas is a stoichiometric mixture of hydrogen and oxygen in the exact ratio of two parts hydrogen to one part oxygen.
