Celani Demonstrates Excess Heat from Nickel Hydrogen Reactor at NIWeek [New Photo]

Francesco Celani of the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics has been presenting a Nickel-Hydrogen based LENR reactor at the National Instruments NIWeek in Austin Texas. New Energy Times today reported on Celani’s process which involves preloading a nickel wire with hydrogen for up to three days. Celani brought a preloaded wire to the NIWeek convention center to demonstrate his device.

Austin-based LENR researcher told New Energy times: “As soon as we applied the electrical power to the internal nichrome-wire heater (48 Watts DC), we began to see excess heat. There was no incubation period. Celani has eight thermocouples in the reactor, and he measured between 58 and 68 Watts heat output. So, conservatively, it produced an average of 10 Watts of excess heat continuously from the time we started, at 1 p.m., until we left, at 7 p.m. – for six hours.”

Daniele Passerini of 22passi.blogspot.com spoke today with Celani who said that the reactor had been running continuously for over 55 hours and that National Instruments measuring tools showed that the peak of excess heat was 22W with a stable excess heat measurement of 14W.

    National Instruments posted a video about LENR.

    I know it has been said before but without Frank giving us all this great website to discuss, without problem people, we could not enjoy so well the wonderful things happening.

    • georgehants

      Ha, have just put up a comment thanking Frank and it has gone to moderation.
      Perhaps the machine does not like praise.

      Hey George, I don’t know about you but I’m halfway through a bottle of chilled sort-of champagne. The significance of today’s events is finally sinking in and I seem to have developed a rather fixed grin. My wife is perplexed and I think, probably a bit worried.

      • freethinker

        Adding to that, the coming weeks may prove even more momentus.
        We could all do with a fixed grin an a glass of bubbly. Cheers.

        Peter, so much happening. I think it’s getting time to designate a time when we have a glass together.

      • georgehants

        Peter, I know, now you see why I sounded like one of the Grandchildren.
        I keep with my red wine for now as am still saving the Tesco Champers for Rossi, (I hope)

      Good one barty, even the bloggers are mostly positive.

    • http://www.health-answers.co.uk Peter Roe

      Is this publication online only, or is there a print version?

    • daniel maris

      An important step forward… :) Thanks for that.

      Someone smell Pulitzer?? Factual error – they write that SPAWAR shut down their research when in fact they moved it to another federal agency (according to SPAWAR spokesman.) The Pulitzer will go to the reporter(s) who are unafraid to look at the bad behavior of scientists, politicians and academics following Pons and Fleischmann’s announcement.

      Who will be courageous enough to take a hard look at Dr. Eugene Mallove’s public accusation of malfeasance and falsified data at MIT following F&P??? REAL journalists show us the underbelly of the beast – and in so doing, enlighten the world.

      • AB

        Got a source for that? I always assumed the program was shut down.

        • GreenWin

          From kirvit:

          “…James Fallin, the director of public affairs at SPAWAR San Diego, asked for confirmation.

          “In response to your recent query,” Fallin wrote, “while I won’t discuss details of our internal decision-making processes, I will confirm SPAWAR plans no further low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research. There are other organizations within the federal government that are better aligned to continue research regarding nuclear power. We have taken initial steps to determine how a transition of low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research might occur.”

          But apparently there is contrast in the ranks as Ray Mabus, Secretary of the Navy stated last year:

          “This is what we do,” he said. “We change the way we use and produce energy, and we’re doing it again, and we’re at the cutting edge, which is where the Navy has always been on energy use.”

    Very interesting words of NI about coldfusion

    btw Change the name of Edison by Rossi ;)
