Close up Video of Celani Reactor

In case you haven’t noticed (I hadn’t until this evening), the folks involved in the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project have been busily uploading a number of new videos to their Youtube Channel. Some of them are endorsements of the project by some of the leading figures in the CF/LENR field, including Frank Gordon, Mike McKubre and Peter Hagelstein. The video below includes very close up shots of the Celani LENR reactor when it was on display at NI Week. Not only is the reactor interesting, but so is watching various people inspecting the device.

It seems like the MFMP is a serious effort, with important support and contributors, and I’m told good progress is being made and more information will be released before too long.

    Any possibility that Celani’s set up could be started up, then detached from external power sources in a convincing way, and coupled with a thermoelectric generator to power an LED? I’m not sure it would prove anything, however it might have more psychological impact than pointing to a computer display showing the output of a complex calorimeter setup. Or would it just not work?

      +1. I’d like to see it in action attached to a computer with some results.

      Yep – that is definitely one of the ways to make progress.

    • Warthog

      Which is precisely what he plans to attempt next (not necessarily generating electricity, but operation in “self-sustain” mode without any input power other than at startup). My guess is that all he needs to do to accomplish that is to use a “Dewar tube” (double-wall, evacuated, mirrored on the inner surfaces of the evacuated portion) instead of the single thick wall he currently uses. Obviously, the inner wall will have to be as thick as current, but the outer wall need not be. Probably blown from fused silica rather than the current borosilicate glass to stand the higher temps.

    Dear Dr Joseph Fine:
    You are perfectly right: in fact we are designing the new 1 MW plants, for hot temperature, and the dimensions will be those of a cylinder with a diameter of 1.2 m and a lencth od 0.4 m.
    Is shocking, I myself are surprised, but it is so.
    Warmest Regards,
    A.R.

      Dear Franco:
      Attention: the dimensions 1.2 x 0.4 is not the surface of the surface of the reactors! Inside this drum of 1.2 x 0.4 m there are 100 reactors , each of one having about 1 200 cm^2 of surface !
      I talked of the dimensions of the external container, not of the heat exchange surface !
      Warm Regards,
      A.R.

        Dott. Rossi,
        Could you tell how much does each cylindrical Hot-Cat weight in grams?

        Dear Ecco Liberation:
        The final version will weight about 4 500 grams
