New Test Completed by Denis Vasilenko — Report Published

Denis Valilenko (aka Firaxtech) has reported that he has begun a new test with a Parkhomov-style reactor. This time he is not providing a live data or video stream, but he has noted that already there has some unusual temperature measurements.

This quote has been posted on the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project Facebook page.

@12.27 CET Denis said
“More information will be in the evening, but I can say at once, the temperature anomalies are very large and very strange had already begun to 250C”
he started at 11.30 MSK [Moscow time]

Denis has said he’s using a ceramic tube reactor with a mix of 1g carbonyl nickel and 0.1 LiAlH4, with input being sine wave of 50 HZ. Here’s a photo of his reactor:

I hope we’ll get more updates as the day goes on. I’ll add anything significant to this post.

Denis has posted a report of the experiment at the LENR-Forum here, and has put data and images on Google drive here

In summary Denis writes:

“Deviation 8% calorimeter (power loss 7-8%), with maximum temperatures of minimum loss was 1.5%.
The main question today – why such anomalies thermocouple? The graphs clearly show that even at a temperature of 1200C to sharp differences arose. Maybe someone faced with a similar and will be able to explain? While come to mind thoughts of mundane problems thermocouple inside the tube.”

    Denis at lenr-forum: “Hi all, today is a lot of conflicting and possibly misleading information, the experiment was launched at 11:30 Moscow time, the duration of 12 hours.”

      By misleading info, does he mean problematic data?
      Half of the experiment must be already over by now. Any data posted ?

      • Mats002

        Not yet from what I can see.

    Denis Vasilenko is breaking new ground with his tests, look forward to hearing of his latest results.

    250C for excess energy seems curious.

      “250C for excess energy seems curious.”

      Not at all.
      Rossi’s LT-cat operates at about 200`C with 120`C steam output.

        Yes .& GS3 had some temperature anomalies in this area, & I’m not sure what Alan’s take is?

    • James Andrew Rovnak

      Nope!

    The test should be about over now. Any news?

    I can think of no good explanation for the wide TC temperature measurement swings. They are well beyond typical Seebeck changes due to recrystallization that generally occur between 400 and 600°C. They are equally hard to explain by hydrogen poisoning or green rot effects, because they then would have to reverse the “damage” somehow, repeatedly. It could be reduction and re-oxidation, but I cannot see how that could occur. The TC measurement swings are fairly smooth over a fairly long time, suggesting a consistent source of change, whatever it is. The cyclicity is strange. The part from 425 minutes to 600 minutes is what I would expect to see.

    Neat.

    There are strange jumps of up to 300°C, but the Pout shows no corresponding variation (it should). So I suspect something abnormal with TC or instruments.
    The graphs show no excess, except in the image “end.png”, where there is a tiny gain. For some reason he switched it off just when the excess started showing !!
    Edit: No gain it seems.

    • Ged

      What is “pout” in his case? Is it a measured value or calculated (and from what)?

      • Sanjeev

        Its calculated output power from the temperature of water flowing out.

    Denis made a reference run that was clean with expected result for a dummy run. See http://www.lenr-forum.com/forum/index.php/Thread/1637-Firax-Tech-replic-series/?pageNo=5

    I am not sure but I think he replaced or somewhat fixed the TC giving strange readings. I look forward to an active run now!
