AbstractAn electrolytic system for heating water containing a conductive salt in solution. An electrolytic cell in the system includes a non-conductive housing having an inlet and an outlet and spaced apart first and second conductive foraminous grids positioned within the housing. A plurality of conductive particles each including a conductive metal which is readily combineable with hydrogen or an isotope of hydrogen to form a metallic hydride are positioned within the housing in electrical contact with the first grid adjacent the inlet. An electric power source in the system is initially operably connected across the first and second grids whereby electrical current flows between the grids within the water solution to charge the system after which the system is self-sustaining.
