Parkhomov, a disciple and colleague of Nobel prize winner Andrei Sakharov, attempted to replicate the Hot Cat experimental set-up reported in the recent paper Observation of abundant heat production from a reactor device and of isotopic changes in the fuel [.pdf] authored by a group of Italian and Swedish scientists testing Rossi’s technology.

Parkhomov writes that “the reactor is capable of generating a lot of heat in excess of electric heating”. With the E-Cat replica testing at temperatures between 1200C-1300C, the unit provided a COP of about 2.6.

However, Fig.6 of the report shows a so-called heat-after-death effect, whereby after the heating input is turned off, the reactor continues to maintain its temperature for approx. 8 minutes before dropping lower. This unique effect, when utilized fully, will allow infinite COP as there is zero input power while output power stays strong.

Fig.5 shows that no radiation beyond the normal background radiation was detected.

The English-version of Parkhomov’s report is reproduced below:

1. The design of the reactor.

For the manufacture of reactor Al2O3 ceramics tube length of 120 mm, an outer diameter of 10 mm and an inner diameter of 5 mm is used. The tube is rounded by electric heater. Inside the tube it is 1 g Powder Ni + 10% Li [Al H4]. The thermocouple contacts to outer surface of the tube. The ends of the tube are sealed heat-resistant cement. Likewise the entire surface of the reactor is coated by heat-resistant cement.

Used by experts at verification Rossi reactor technique based on thermovision camera observation is too complex. In this experiment a methodology based on the amount of water boiled out is used. This technique is repeatedly checked. In this experiment the reactor is inside of closed metal vessel. This vessel immersed in the water. When the water boils, part of it is removed as a vapor. By measuring the decrease of water, it is easy to calculate the separated heat because the value of the evaporations heat is well-known. Correction for heat loss through the insulation can be calculated as cooling rate after shutdown reactor.

The power supplied to the heater stepwise varied from 25 to 500 watts. Level of 1000°C was overcome after 5 hours of heating. On the same diagram shows the count rate Geiger counter SI-8B. This counter responsive to alpha, beta, gamma and X-rays. It is seen that all during heating, the radiation situation is not very different from the background. A slight increase in temperature is noticeable only about 600°C to 1000°C. Further studies have shown that this chance or regularity. Dosimeter DK-02 is not found during the experiment set dose within the measurement error (5 mP)

Here is shown in more detail the temperature change of the heating power 300, 400 and 500 watts. It can be noted that for the same heat output there is a gradual increase in temperature, particularly strong in the last site. At the end of the site with the highest temperature there are the temperature oscillations. This section ends with the termination of electric heating as a result of heater burnout. Thereafter, at the temperature for 8 minutes kept at nearly 1,200°C, and then begins to fall sharply. It is indicates that in the reactor at this time heat is produced at kilowatt without any electric heating. Thus, from the already seen that the reactor is capable of generating a lot of heat in excess of electric heating.

At temperatures 1150°С and 1200°C – 1300°C, the heat release of the reactor considerably exceeds consumed energy. During activity in these modes (90 minutes) over the consumed electrical energy about 3 МДж or 830 Wh is produced. Output Experiments with analogue of high-temperature Rossi heat source, loaded with a mixture of nickel and lithium aluminum hydride, showed that at temperatures of about 1100°C or higher this device produce more energy than it consumes.

Andrea Rossi on Tom and Doug Show: “It is a very important moment”

Tom and Doug are two musicians who have a weekly radio show where they regularly discuss Andrea Rossi and the Ecat.

They’ve written songs on the topic, including I Believe in the Ecat, and LENR Revolution, complete with Rossi audio samples and a saxophone player inserted in the Ecat demonstration video.

An interview with Andrea Rossi conducted by Doug in mid-February opens this video where Rossi talks about plans for industrial Ecats and the third-party testing of the Hot Cat.

Some of the points made were:

  • After the delivery of the 1MW Ecat to the military last year, work ensued on engineering the industrial plants for certification.
  • Now, work continues on “manufacturing some industrial plants that are close to being delivered”, and the certification process continues.
  • The independent test of the Hot Cat, the Ecat that works at high-temperature, should be finished by the end of March.
  • It will be an important validation, but manufacturing of the industrial Ecats will continue regardless of the independent report. The third-party test and the industrial production are independent, but parallel. Rossi is very curious to learn what the report says, and will apply any new information to the engineering process.
  • He’s in contact with the third-party once or twice a week, but the main daily focus is completing the industrial plants that have already been sold.
  • He continues to work long hours, and will continue “pressing” until delivery.
  • After the industrial plants are delivered and working in their factory location, data from their operations will guide work on the domestic Ecat. The industrial plants are “basically assemblies of domestic plants”.
  • Domestic units for the home need to be easy to use and held to a high standard of safety.

Rossi Update: The Hot Honeycomb

We’ve been holding off on an E-Cat/Andrea Rossi update until more can be validated amidst the whirling claims and mystery leaks of recent weeks. But, here’s some brief notes.

The E-Cat has seemed to have had a name change: the HOT CAT (though recent comments to Rossi’s blog indicate that it could now be called, “The Hot Honeycomb”….) This name change due to the recent claims of achieving high temperatures with the E-Cat, 1,200 degrees Celsius or higher from one small ten pound unit, producing 10 kilowatts of power with complete stability.

Claims of a high temp E-Cat were apparently first leaked out by a mystery internet forum poster calling himself “Cures”. It was eventually revealed that “Cures” was the consultant of Rossi’s military customer. Rossi stated he was very upset with the leaks, but was also understanding over the excitement and temptation to get the word out. Having known the consultant as a young man, some suspected the leak to be purposeful. In any event, drama O-rama once again…

A year ago we were awaiting the big October test, and now, once again it seems September and October of 2012 will be the unveiling of more test results, this time with the Hot Honeycomb. In September, potential validation of the Hot Cat will be released at the Zurich conference. And then, an October release will follow, from University of Bologna scientists regarding the tests that they have performed.

Hank Mills from Pure Energy Systems has a recent summation of the scenario with the possible enormous implications and more specific details of the actual Hot Honeycomb here.

If the claims made about the high temperature “hot cat” prove to be accurate, this radically evolved version of the original E-Cat could provide a near total solution to the world’s energy crisis. -H.Mills
