At a new test in Bologna on Thursday, the ‘E-cat’ invented by Andrea Rossi ran in a completely stable self sustained mode for over three hours. Ny Teknik attended the test.
The test on Thursday was performed before a number of invited physicists and engineers from various countries – Italy, Sweden, USA and China – as well as journalists from a couple of Italian media outlets and Ny Teknik.
One of the invited researchers was chemist Roland Pettersson, retired
Associate Professor from the University of Uppsala and a colleague of
Professor Sven Kullander’s. Kullander issued a report on the E-cat
earlier this year; Pettersson has conducted research on LENR together with Professor Hidetsugu Ikegami from Osaka University in Japan.
“I’m convinced that this works, but there is still room for more measurements”, Pettersson told Ny Teknik after the test.
The important new element in the test was that it
was possible to bypass the controversial energy calculation, based on
vaporization, by injecting the steam from the energy catalyzer into a
heat exchanger, where a flow of water was heated.
Although accuracy was moderate and the measurement set up could have
been more advanced, results was clear, mainly because the E-cat ran for
over three hours in self sustained mode.
Furthermore, the casing enclosing the reactor was opened after
completion of the test, and the invited guests was thus able to see what
was inside – basically a heat exchanger with metal flanges; within it,
according to Rossi, was a shielded flat reactor unit with three reactor
chambers, only one of which was operating during the test...

Once again it proves that such demos won't settle things among scientists. Proof in science happens through replication, either by other scientists or, even better, with working devices in the market place. [Vlad]
