Cold fusion E-Cat experiment ends explosively
Posted on Monday, February 09, 2015 @ 01:06:25 EST by vlad

Devices From wired.co.uk : An attempt by the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project to replicate E-Cat, Andrea Rossi's alleged cold fusion reactor, ended explosively yesterday after the reactor heated to over 1,000C.

The MFMP is a group dedicated to co-operative, open-source research into cold fusion. Because the effects tend to be so small, much of the work has been on calorimetry (the science of measuring heat) and calibration to ensure that any excess heat is real. However, MFMP's Project Dog Bone is aiming at something bigger, producing large amounts of excess heat as claimed by Rossi, professor Alexander Parkhomov of Lomonosov Moscow State University  and  independent US researcher Jack Cole.

In line with their approach of carrying out all the research as publicly as possible, the experiment was shown on a live video feed. The reactor can be seen cracking apart with a loud bang three hours 47 minutes into the embedded video.

Fortunately, the experimenters noticed the temperature rise, and put up a blast shield in the minute before the explosion. The soundtrack records the experimenters' surprised and excited responses to the blast: ...

The most efficient energy technology in the world, at this point of time is the Dog Bone. At least if one would believe the few people who have tested working technology.

An independent team made some tests in Switzerland and their report claims that the device operated steady over time with superior efficiencies. This report has been downloaded from a Swedish Webpage over 150 000 times.

The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project is one of many team working on trying to replicate the Dog Bone. They live stream their experiments over the Internet and invite the public to participate.

From Next  Big Future : 2015 could be year of LENR breakout and legitimacy. Cold Fusion vindication possible

Russian Prof Parkhomov claims to have replicated Rossi E-Cat and Parkhomov and published fully open research. Others are racing to replicate and extend the work.

Prof Alexander Parkhomov [www.wired.co.uk] of Lomonosov Moscow State University has published a paper describing his successful replication of the E-Cat, based on the available information about it. The paper is in Russian; there is a link and commentary and video in English on E-Cat World. Parkhomov's results are more modest, but the energy output of his cloned E-Cat claimed to be up to 2.74 times as great as the input...

[Vlad]Even though GoatGuy is the resident skeptic on that very informative site and I do not generally find skeptics useful for encouraging progress, he is a very articulate and knowleadgeable classical trained scientists and may be considered the voice of the official reason. Here is his good comment the the above article:

Oh, I suppose I have to put at least one comment in. Being one of the Rossi skeptics in the past, and all.

First - I am impressed with the mass-of-water-lost methodology: this method has issues (time lag, mostly), but if experiments "at temperature" happen long enough, and the "ends" are thrown out, then there is a real possibility of having an almost incontrovertible quantitative result.

Second - I am hopeful that similar tests (by others?) might reveal a few more calorimetry points besides 900C, 1150C and 1300C. I know those are the points that have impressive results. But it would be well to see 500C, 650C, 800C as well. These would serve to demonstrate the actual basis for heat-loss (insulation) estimates, as well as should correlate closely to the injected heating energy.

One of the core problems with using the heating-wire-imbedded-in-alumina issue was demonstrated with the test-cell that developed the bright emission in a knot at one end. Unless chosen to have a very flat temperature-coefficent of resistance, heat-resistant wire often exhibits enough positive feedback that hot-spots develop, which escalate, burning out the segment. This is actually what usually burns out "electric stove coils". A bit of oxide erodes the heating element, which then gets hotter, which over time oxides faster, … exponentially.

Third - The mixture of compounds used to "charge the cell" is straight forward. Micronized metallic nickel and lithium aluminum tetrahydride. LiAlH is known to decompose to LiAl alloy and H gas, right up there in the high-hundreds of degrees centigrade. The openness of this suggests that others can follow in the footsteps.

OK … now for a thought on the next step(s).

Remember, keep your eye on the ball: this is supposed to be a nuclear reactor. Don't forget this part! There are exactly no nuclear reactions that don't produce transmutations, be they plus-ups (absorbed neutrons, or nucleus-captured electrons), spalls (where tiny fragments whizz off the nuclei, such as alpha particles), or daughter products (pairs or more of fragments from nucleus fission events). Do not forget this part.

If then the reactions are nuclear, then they must become loaded with transmuted byproducts. Those of us who are reasonably competent in nuclear physics also ascribe to the idea that no nuclear transmutation may be silent; in other words, if a nucleus of any element absorbs another particle, be that an electron, a neutron, or something bigger, then just as electrons humming around atoms absorb photons, are excited, and some time later fall back to a lower energy level (releasing a very specifically "colored" photon!), then within the much more complicated structure of an atomic nucleus, an absorbed particle plus its kinetic energy, will - and must - cause a rearrangement of the protons and neutrons, emitting a detectable particle in turn.

So, "old scientists" like The Goat here expect that nuclear reactions must be accompanied by emissions. X-ray, Gamma, Beta, Neutrons, Alphas, spare protons, something. On this point we (the Orthodox Nuclear gang) have been chided: "well, there could be new physics involved!". Physics that allows nuclear-rearrangement without the attendant high-energy emissions. Or that those energies are emitted, but locally absorbed through some as-yet unknown quantum mechanism, to not just "go away" externally, but to swing along and help power the chain-of-absorptions, leading to radiation-less LENR. OK - for the moment, I can, and will suspend the Objections of the Orthodox Physicist.

NONE-THE-LESS … and this is key … in the test-cell, following the experimental reaction, there should be a recoverable "ash", mostly made of a combination of lithium, aluminum and metallic nickel, which through the dynamics of high-temperature diffusion, have become a messily mixed blob. Blobs. In the presence of hydrogen, aluminum and especially lithium are really pretty good metallic "amalgamators" (amalgam = a superficial "surface alloy" of bare metals and usually mercury).

These spent reactants should definitely carry atomic species that suggest that the celebrated Low Energy Nuclear Reactions have taken place. Indeed, if the experiments run long enough, then the amount of excess produced energy should quantitatively correspond to the change in nuclear binding energy of all the reactor's stuff, before → after.

And what would we expect to see? … Simple enough:

Nickel → Copper → Zinc … if neutrons are being absorbed
Lithium → Beryllium → Boron … if neutrons being absorbed.
… and Helium from alphas that have recaptured electrons
Aluminum → Silicon → Phosphorus → Sulfur … if the Aluminum is capturing neutrons.

There should not be any fission reactions (except in the lithium case).
And, strictly speaking, the bulk radioactivity of the spent-fuel-blob should after some time become quite sizable.

Anyway, I have other stuff to do today, so I'll not reply. But just remember to keep your eye on the nuclear-reaction-consequence ball
