Tear-down and Testing of Orbo O-Cube Cells (Greg Daigle)

Fri, 30/06/2017 - 14:16
The following post has been submitted by Greg DaigleThe last threads from Frank about Steorn’s Orbo “OCube” reported in this forum had mixed results. In E-Cat World you can reference these postings:In summary, the O-Cube appeared not to perform as claimed and the electronic circuitry was suspected as the cause.Since then (February/March 2017), Steorn closed shop, liquidated its assets, and founder Shaun McCarthy and some of his former emploO-Cube Report v2
yees have gone on to new ventures.In early October 2016 Frank sent the OCube he had received from Steorn to me (I am a former member of the Steorn Knowledge Data Base) and I began a teardown of the components.  I acquired a digital oscilloscope and other software to do some analysis of the individual blue cells.  The blue cells were the battery-like components, covered in mastic and purportedly containing rolls of Shaun’s “magic film” capable of recharging themselves.  Testing was as time allowed.This report highlights that testing of the blue cells and the results.  From these tests the following conclusions were reached regarding individual blue cells:
  1. They do not harvest energy from the environment
  2. They do recharge themselves as claimed by Steorn
I remain open to doing additional tests as time allows.  Looking forward to critiques and ideas to test.My report is here: http://e-catworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/O-Cube-Report-v2.pdf O-Cube Report v2

MFMP Begins Testing of ECCO Fuel

Fri, 30/06/2017 - 04:17

Bob Greenyer has been posting on the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project’s Steemit site about their progress in testing of fuel that has been sent to them from Indian researcher Suhas Ralkar, the inventor of the ECCO reactor, which he claims to be a working LENR device.

The MFMP are planning to visit Suhas in India, but before taking that trip, they have been sent fuel which they have begun testing. Bob posted this today:

For those that are unfamiliar with Suhas Ralkar’s process for creating Nickel foil – please check out our previous article here. Nickel Sulphate is mixed with de-ionised water, the combination of which is used to electro-deposit Nickel foil onto 304 Stainless Steel by way 300khz of 200V DC ultrasonic ‘hydrogen plasma’ and in sympathy vibrations.

According to a previous MFMP post, Suhas’s fuel starts out with this:

There are two types of fuel Suhas produced and ran, both of which contain 60% Titanium + 5% Carbon black + 5% Potassium Carbonate + 10% Lithium Hydroxide

In addition, during processing:

“1x” fuel has 10% Nickel + 10 % Molybdenum
“final” fuel has 20% Nickel

In their most recent post, the MFMP now states that testing suggests that the used fuel has been shown to include gold, silver, palladium, holmium and tantalum, which was not in the original fuel.

Ross v. IH Trial begins on June 28th.

Thu, 29/06/2017 - 03:30

We have had plenty of discussion here over the last year and a half or so in connection with the Rossi v. Industrial Heat et. al lawsuit, and there have been hundreds of documents posted in connection with the case. Now the moment that Andrea Rossi has been waiting for — his moment in court — has arrived.

For most people in the world this is a nonevent. I think very few people are aware that there is a multimillion dollar lawsuit about cold fusion/LENR taking place. It’s no surprise that the news media are not paying attention to the case, since LENR is either dismissed or ignored by the majority of reporters and pundits.

Luckily, for those of us interested in the events, there is someone who is attending the trial in Miami, Florida and reporting about it online. That is Abd Lomax, who has posted on this site many times, and who has a website called Cold Fusion Community. It seems that his site will be an important resource for those of us who are interested in the proceedings of the case. The link to his website is: http://coldfusioncommunity.net/

According to Abd, today was mainly taken up with the seating of the jury, and the lawywers making opening statements. He says that Rossi’s lawyer, Brian Chaiken, used material from a recent post on the Sifferkoll website.

I’m glad there is at least one person who has taken the time and trouble to attend the trial, and who is willing to report about it to the rest of us.

Estimation of Theories, Applied to the LENR Field, and Others?

Wed, 07/06/2017 - 20:04
The following post has been submitted by RicalWikis In the report about IWAHLM 2017, David J. Nagel questions LENR theoreticians about the completion of their theories. This questioning seems excellent. This questioning seems also valid for any other theories. What could happen if we question present theories through the David J. Nagel questions? 1. How […]

LENR is Not So Easy, But Worth the Effort

Wed, 31/05/2017 - 12:43
For many years now we have seen various efforts to demonstrate clear LENR reactions in an open setting, and so far this has proven to be a rather elusive goal. The recent attempt by the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project to test a reactor of Me356 is another disappointment which leaves many questions unanswered. My takeaway […]
