  • Observation of abundant heat production from a reactor device and of isotopic changes in the fuel

    Sifferkol.se ^ | 10/8/2014 | Giuseppe Levi
    ABSTRACT New results are presented from an extended experimental investigation of anomalous heat production in a special type of reactor tube operating at high temperatures. The reactor, named E-Cat, is charged with a small amount of hydrogen-loaded nickel powder plus some additives, mainly Lithium. The reaction is primarily initiated by heat from resistor coils around the reactor tube. Measurements of the radiated power from the reactor were performed with high-resolution thermal imaging cameras. The measurements of electrical power input were performed with a large bandwidth three-phase power analyzer. Data were collected during 32 days of running in March 2014. The...
  • 1-megawatt cold fusion power plant now available – yours for just $1.5 million

    Believe it or not, the first cold fusion power plant is now available to pre-order. The E-Cat 1MW Plant, which comes in a standard shipping container, can produce one megawatt of thermal energy, using low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR) — a process, often known as cold fusion, that fuses nickel and hydrogen into copper, producing energy 100,000 times more efficiently than combustion. It sounds like E-Cat is now taking orders for delivery in early 2014, priced fairly reasonably at $1.5 million. Has cold fusion — the answer to all our energy needs — finally made its way to market?

    Stealing elections is an old game politicians play. Lyndon B. Johnson, the 36th president, got to the U.S. Senate in 1948 by “winning” the closest race in Texas history by a margin of 87 votes out of more than a million cast. An election judge in tiny Alice, Texas, said he counted more than 200 names on the voting roll for Box 13 that were written in alphabetic succession in the same hand, same color of ink. When a federal court subpoenaed Box 13, it was discovered to be “lost.” LBJ took his seat in the Senate. Voting machines were...

    Full title: Tests find Rossi's E-Cat has an energy density at least 10 times higher than any conventional energy source (Phys.org) —In the ongoing saga of Andrea Rossi's energy catalyzer (E-Cat) that promises clean, cheap power for the world, the latest events continue to bring as many questions as answers. Several scientists have performed supposedly independent tests of two E-Cat prototypes under controlled conditions and using high-precision instrumentation. In a paper posted at arXiv.org, the researchers write that, even by the most conservative of measurements, the E-Cat produces excess heat with a resulting energy density that is at least 1...

    Indicating a shift in the commercial direction of the E-Cat, Andrea Rossi today said that he is no longer in control of the business side of his invention. Last year Rossi announced that he had entered into a partnership with an undisclosed American company and comments since then have indicated that he has sold both the IP to the company and R & D operations, and that his title is now Chief Scientist. Today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics a reader asked a question regarding his current role: As Chief Scientist, you don’t control anymore the business or you‘ve...

It's a good product for backpacking, but too small on caliber. The fact that when it's packed inside its waterproof stock, it can float if dropped into water, and can be retrieved and will still work, is a great deciding factor. But being a .22LR is a detractor. Now take a look at the Rossi Circuit Judge and their many different variations. I like the 3-inch Magnum...

    As Andrea Rossi discusses the commercialization of E-Cat Technology one thing seems to becoming clearer by the day: he is focusing much more now on the production of electricity. Two thermal energy producing E-Cats have been designed, the 1 MW plant now on the market, and the 10 kW units that Leonardo Corp is gearing up to mass produce. Rossi seems to be pleased with both these products — but it is pretty clear that he is not satisfied enough to stop working towards the goal of the efficient production of electricity from his inventions.

    If Italian inventor Andrea Rossi's cold fusion machine, called the E-Cat, really works, then the world's energy problems are all but solved. Rossi claims that a small amount of input energy drives a fusion reaction between hydrogen and nickel atoms inside his machine, producing an outpouring of surplus heat that can be used to generate electricity. And instead of the nasty radioactive byproducts given off by nuclear fission reactors — think Fukushima or Chernobyl — the E-Cat spits out just a teaspoon of copper.

The instrumentation expertise of NASA GRC is applied to improve the diagnostics for investigating the anomalous heat in LENR. I find it interesting and rather puzzling that...

Reading the tealeaves, it seems that Tarr maintained a healthy touch of scepticism but even so, the invitation was remarkable and I wondered then if we were seeing the tip of a larger movement among the power-brokers towards the possibility that cold fusion was real. Many wondered if Rossi was simply looking for investors, hoping to do a deal under the table...

This heat is measured by outside observers and cannot be accounted for, completely, by the external power input.

    A physicist in Italy claims to have demonstrated a new type of power plant that provides safe, cheap and virtually unlimited nuclear power to the world, without fossil fuels or radiation concerns. The only hitch: Scientists say the method -- cold fusion -- is patently impossible. They say it defies the laws of physics. Andrea Rossi doesn't seem to care. He told FoxNews.com that his new device takes in nickel and hydrogen and fuses them in a low-grade nuclear reaction that essentially spits out sheer power, validating the strange science.
  • The ECAT Floodgates Open! Now what will come out?

    As everyone following the saga of Andrea Rossi and his Energy Catalyzer knows, October 28 reputedly saw the successful testing of his '1 megawatt' cold fusion plant and the first sale. Now Rossi has reported the sale of 'more than 2' such ECAT units, with rumors on the net indicating 13 sales. It is unclear whether this involves the sudden physical transfer of twelve more completed ECATS (unlikely), or that money has changed hands and sales agreements have been concluded for delivery of such units. Rossi has indicated first-year production of 30-100 such units, so a dozen ECATS represents a...

    Well, the big day has come and gone. Andrea Rossi's one-megawatt-capable E-Cat cold fusion device has been tested in Bologna, Italy; and the unknown customer, who ran the test, is apparently happy. There were some issues, so it couldn't be run at full power in self-looped mode, but what it did do was plenty impressive. It ran for 5.5 hours producing 470 kW, while in self-looped mode. That means no substantial external energy was required to make it run, because it kept itself running, even while producing an excess of nearly half a megawatt. Rossi explained the reasons for this...

    Don't plan on going off the grid just yet with your very own E-Cat steam/electricity generator. Not unless you have fairly deep pockets and can wait a while as the small e-cats are not going up for sale anytime soon. While answering questions on his blog, Journal of Nuclear Physics, Rossi said: "Andrea Rossi October 19th, 2011 at 8:58 AM Dear Marco: The 1 MW plants will be for sale starting November. We did not decide, yet, about the smaller units. Warm Regards, A.R." So Where do you want your shipping container?

    The story that follows this headline: "As Interest in the E-Cat Spikes, Rossi says the October 28th E-Cat Test Will be the Last Public One" (Read more: http://www.ecatnews.net/#ixzz1bLUVpDa6) indicates that the much hyped and long awaited October 28 test will only be semi-public as the ones conducting the tests will be the "customer's consultants". Just who that is remains a secret and probably will remain so since if the test that fails there won't be a customer.

    A short announcement was made on Andrea Rossi’s web site today: Dear Don Witcher: The test will be made on the 28th of October. I will give details within a week. Warm Regards, A.R. We have a date now, but no place yet. It wouldn’t surprise me if the location is Bologna, Italy — since that is where the plant is currently located. It would take a lot of time and expense to move it from its current location, and if he has it running stably at the moment it could be risky to move the whole thing at this...

    Present Status: The device is in self sustain mode. Since at least 13:32 GMT, October 6 by Hank Mills Pure Energy Systems News Page commenced October 5, 2011 Introduction On October 6th of 2011, a very important test of Andrea Rossi's E-Cat (Energy Catalyzer) will take place in the city of Bologna, Italy. Attending the test will be invited scientists from around the world, including staff from the University of Bologna. This test may be the most important so far, due to the fact many of the issues that remain unresolved in previous tests, will potentially be resolved. For example,...

    eCat Domains: "No Comment" Tuesday, October 4, 2011 ecat.com and e-cat.com A few weeks ago the domain e-cat.com was changed to point to the Kleiner Perkins Caulfield and Byers website - more specifically, the part of their business that invests in new Green Technologies. Just 48 hours ago the similarly named ecat.com domain also went live with a teasing video about steam. A few days ago (and not knowing for sure) we dared to speculate that Rossi's US partner is in fact Kleiner Perkins (see this report). I emailed KPCBs Greentech Dept and was not the least bit surprised to...

    Daniele Passerini’s blog 22 Passi d’amore e dintorni has an announcement from Dr. Brian Josephson, retired Cambridge University physics professor regarding an upcoming test that he will carry out on one of Andrea Rossi’s E-Cats: On October 6th we will have the opportunity to make a long (more then 12 hours) of testing one of the modules of the RC 1 MW generator. The module will be Opened to us and we will have the opportunity to verify weights and volumes of the internal components. Heat measurements will be done at condensing the steam produced in heat exchanger and a...

    Why the Announced Test at Uppsala Should Show if Rossi’s E-Cat Claims Are Valid Featured by admin I’m very happy to be able to have another guest post today — this one written by Dr. Johannes Hagel, of Neuss, Germany . Being a physicist I consider the announced test of Andrea Rossis E-Cat at Uppsala as one of the most important of all the series of tests we have been seen so far. This for the following reason: In the announced test for the first time there will be made use of a heat exchanger which transfers the energy of...
