Update From Alan Smith on HHO Experiment

The following is an update from Alan Smith with regards to the HHO experiment E-Cat World has sponsored

A little update on the HHO experiment. Parcels have started arriving (like a birthday) and I have been re-arranging the workshop in order to make space for the experimental equipment build program.

So far the stainless steel plate and neoprene gasket material for the bubbler, the 1/2 acre of 12mm lexan polycarbonate, thermometers and the parts to build a stirrer have arrived.

Spent a pleasant hour 🙁 cutting the stainless into suitable plates. To stay in budget I bought offcuts of 316 plate- much much cheaper than ready-cut pieces but they do require a little TLC with a file and hacksaw. Images will appear as work gets under way. This job is not slated to start until April – but I must confess that hacksawing is a welcome change from all the bank, tax, and regulatory paperwork I am currently having to do for Leap Forward Labs.

One offer, one request.

I now have some spare free-cutting stainless plate, free to a good HHOme – but I would appreciate payment for the postage. Let me know if you would like them to build an electrolyser- email with your requirements at: leapforwardlaboratory@gmail.com

REQUEST. Does anybody have a spare piece of catalyser matrix? A piece around as big oas the palm of your habd woyld be perfect. This job is running way over budget now and if you have a piece it would be a great help. Email as above.

    Great to hear you are moving forward with this. I can get you piece of substrate shipped out if postage is paid. I’m sure Neal has enough to spare as he just got done shipping a bunch out to the guys on the H-Cat forums. Just let me know and I will make contact to see if he has something available.

    • AlanSmith

      @Justin. Let me know about the postage and we’re done. Really great! A.

      • Justin Church

        No problem, making contact right now. I will email you with details once I find out something.

    Hey Alan, As a longstanding businessman, entrepreneur, inventor, and now LENR investor. I can feel and well understand your pain as it is always a part of mine and most other small businesses daily life. Keep chasing those seamlessly non ending problems and hopefully walla – one day – success for us all- eh!

    Hey Justin, I like your guts and enthusiasm – we all appreciate your input and help…

    Thank you, Alan, for doing this for us!

    Hi Justin. (and all). Thank you so much for offering to source a bit of catalyst matrix for me. A tremendous help -it is the last pebble in the road. And it would be great to have something from a known and comparable source rather than just some random component off ebay.. Of course I am more than happy to pay for shipping, and since I am going to be in the build phase for a few weeks a basic airmail service will suffice. Please email me at leapforwardlaboratory@gmail.com to discuss as required.

    I joined your H-Cat forum today, btw -after a battle with the verification codes. Reminder to self, get new spectacles! Lots of very useful information there – a great resource for sure.

    Let me get this right, we have a mix of H2 and O2 and blowing it over a catalyst? Are we just not making H20?

    Can we buy you a new catalytic converter to cut open? It will may even work better than on old one.
    I know that this explanation is not LENR-ish, but it would seem to explain the effect quite well.

    Cur the 316 SS plate with thin blade cutting disks using a grinder or even a drimmel (with eye protection).

    @Allan Shura. Thanks for the tip, but actually its not too bad with a proper professional hacksaw -and 28 tpi blades from Kenzo in Japan are a big help.

    @Dave A. You have got this right. We are making H2O, However, the experiment is designed to discover if there is any intrinsic difference between ‘naked flame’ combustion of electrolysed ‘nascent’ Hydrogen and Oxygen and catalytic recombination. I have no preconceived ideas as to what the outcome of such and experiment might be, but done properly it would settle some relatively old arguments and start a new batch.

    Alan,

    A colleage of mine – Dr Howard Phillips – is trying to contact you about your work with HHO and Catalysts (catalytic converters. He (we) want to know if Catalytic Carbon used for makeing H2 would be of any benefit. It does not use electrolysis and works at 80’C
    Regards

    Martin

    • AlanSmith

      Hi Martin. Thank you for your interest. You and/or Dr. Phillips are very welcome to contact me by email at leapforwardlaboratory@gmail.com, We can continue to communicate that way or chat via Skype if you prefer. I would most certainly like to know more about the CC -sounds very intriguing.

      ETA- I think we are close together by the M25/A12 Nexus
