H-Cat Radiation Test (Video)

During recent discussions we have been having here regarding the homebuilt ‘H-Cat’ systems that Justin Church and others have been working on there were some questions raised about whether — if there is an LENR or nuclear reaction of some kind taking place — there might be some danger to experimenters from radiation. Some suggested that it would be wise to use a Geiger counter to check for radiation levels.

Below is a video made by ‘hydrofuelincanada’ one of the administrators of the newly created H-Cat Forum (http://app.hydrofuel.ca/) in which a Geiger counter is used to measure radiation levels near a piece of catalytic substrate being exposed to HHO gas.

Of course from this video we can’t tell whether there is any kind of LENR reaction taking place, but there doesn’t seem to be any indication from this Geiger counter of levels of radiation above normal background levels.

This is just one of the number of videos linked to on the H-Cat Forum. In order to see the rest, as well as the other material you have to be a registered member of the site (free registration)

    Laser fusion experiment extracts net energy from fuel
    Milestone is passed on the long road to fusion energy.

    What a strange video. Shaking, very dark, no commentary and did I mention shaking? Hard to take it seriously.

    That aside, I have no idea what I just saw… CPM varied between 18 – 8 – 18? Is that nowadays an indication of a nuclear reaction?

    An electric cord radiates 60Hz.
    A radio transmitter radiates Mhz.
    A radar radiates Ghz.
    A heater radiates IR.
    A flashlight radiates visible light.
    This device certainly radiates. Heat and light. The question then is, does radiate something harmful?
    One would need to look for UV, x-rays and gamma in addition to particles, eh?

      yes max.

    There is this guy making his own experiments and devices: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1T20cuX1py8

    I doubt this is LENR, but it definitvely looks interesting and like fun experiments.

    Justin, you’ll discover something no one has before. Stay the course and don’t listen to the negative. I admire your courage and perseverance. Thanks.

    Standard Geiger counters are not equipped to detect low energy particles or neutrons. Special tubes are available for those purposes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geiger_counter

    How do you load hydrogen into the palladium in a muffler above 90%????


  • enantiomer2000

    That is because this isn’t a LENR device and doesn’t generate any energy.

    • Justin Church

      And how do you know that? Have you built and tested a device like this before? I’d love to see your video and reports….

      • guga

        Justin, maybe I just did not see or hear that in your video. But how did you rule out the simplest explanation for the heat, that it is only the chemical reaction of HHO gas to water? Did you do control experiments? (I think a good one would be to put a resistive heater inside, close the catalyzer and use the same power as for the electrolysis.) Of course you don’t need to prove anything to me. But I assume it is in your own best interest to make sure you are on the right track?

    • Justin Church

      And another thing, a lot of the LENR research groups have made it clear there is no evidence to support harmful emissions of radiation and at this point in time we don’t even know if the process can even be considered “Nuclear” so if you cannot provide any data from your own personal experience to support your negative remark please refrain from doing so.

    • mecatfish

      I have to chime in. Would it be so terrible if you can use 40 watts to make the HHO and then turn it into a space heater that throws more heat than a 1500watt space heater? The point is, dont discredit the man on the basis of disproval of overunity or LENR. It dosent matter. Even if his device is only 10% better than a standard space heater, it is still worth it.

      • guga

        Sure it would be worth it. But from what I have seen I can not tell if it is any more efficient than a regular heater. I would be happy if appropriate controls did indicate overunity and it would be great if we could see it. Because it’s easy to be lead on a wrong track when doing experiments if you don’t do appropriate controls.
