1. An electrolyzer, comprising:

  • a housing having an inlet and an outlet;

    a fluid flow passageway in the housing, the fluid flow passageway connecting to at least the inlet and the outlet;

    an impermeable divider disposed in the fluid flow passageway and defining at least two sections in the fluid flow passageway, which are connected by one or more openings, wherein each of said openings are within the periphery of the housing, the divider being positioned such that at least some of the fluid entering the fluid flow passageway through the inlet and exiting through the outlet flows through each of the at least two sections of the fluid flow passageway; and

    first and second electrodes positioned such that application of an electrical potential across such electrodes causes field lines to pass through the at least two sections of the fluid flow passageway.
