MFMP to Conduct Second Live Test Today, January 2 — Live Thread

I just heard from Bob Greenyer of the Martin Fleischmann Memorial project who told me that there will be another Project Dog Bone test today.

He wrote at 1:00 p.m, US Central Time:

“Live experiment to assess pressure changes from heated Nickel + LiAlH4 using steel sheath reactor core, hopefully within 2-3 hours from now.”

Bob says there will be a live YouTube broadcast — so stay tuned to the MFMP web site for a link. I have to be on the road this afternoon, and might not be able to keep up with this event very closely. I will tune in where and when I can.

Please use this thread for comments on this new test — I will be grateful for your updates!

      From the analysis of the DB2Day Autopsy, loading hydrogen into the Dog Bone is a complicated an involved process. It seems to me, if too much heat is applied at initial start up, hydrogen pressure may clime too high too fast when enough Lithium aluminum hydride is provided to ensure that when after all the preheating is done, enough hydrogen remains free from the absorption by the reactor structure to optimize the LENR reaction in steady state operation.

      When the Dog Bone is subsequently restarted, the hydrogen loading profile will most probably be changed since some hydrogen will have been retained in the nickel powder and the structural material be it either stainless steel or alumina.

      I can see why Rossi needs to be on site and actively managing the heat up of the Dog Bone. The Dog Bone is not something that one can initally startup or turn off and on easily or automatically. This is BAD.

        hi, Axil,
        Sounds kinda like a nuclear reaction, ah

      I suggest that the reactor core tube be coated with Yttria-stabilized zirconia coated either on its inside or its outside of the tube as experimentation requires. This provides thermal cycling resistance and a gas barrier. If zirconia is used to coat the outside, a thin layer of vapor deposited carbon should be applied to the Zirconia to increase the gas barrier so that the carbon does not poison the LENR reaction.

      An alternative process is to coat the outside of the core tube with silicon carbide. Then coat the outside of the SiC with a thin coat of carbon for a gas barrier. No thermal cracking should occur in either alterative because of the similarity of the thermal coefficients of expansions in the suggested materials.

      This steps should make the core table hydrogen tight and make the MFMP implementation a better product vs. the Rossi reactor.

  • Simply pure science.

  • I agree with the community part, not so sure about the ism.
