Researchers at Institute of Nuclear Physics of Kazakhstan Report Excess Heat in Nickel-Hydrogen System (UPDATE: Correction to English Translation Received)

Thanks to Peter Gluck for sharing about an experiment conducted at the Institute of Nuclear Physics of Kazakhstan, where researchers report achieving excess heat in a nickel-hydrogen system.

The report, in Russian, has been uploaded to the LENR Forum here

While we await an English translation of the text (hopefully), a Russian speaking reader has kindly provided me with a summary of the report:

Looks like good experiment with excess heat detected. They heated two cores in furnance and looked at temperature difference between a fueled core and an empty one. There was a difference and with calculations they converted this difference into 21w of excess heat. Run duration was 100 hours. All equipment is very professional. They are
scientists not amateurs.

They tested two empty cores first, to ensure they see zero temp difference. After that it was a real run, with one core fueled and one empty. The temperature difference between fueled and unfueled core was in the range 20-40c. See chart 2 on fig 6

Conclusions – 1. There was an excess heat. 2. They got it without heater coil. Vacuum furnance was used instead.

UPDATE: Thanks to Bob Greenyer for posting a link to an English translation of this paper translated by Bob Higgins. A great contribution as usual!

UPDATE#2 (Oct 22, 2015)

I received this message from Alexander Parkhomov regarding the English translation:

Researchers from Kazakhstan thank you for publishing the translation of their article into English. But in this translation there is an inaccuracy, causing the readers confusion.
It is written:”The duration of the testing was limited to 100 hours.”
Should be:”The duration of the next testing was limited to 100 hours”.
The authors ask, if possible, to make small, but important correction.

    This approach avoids the cross-talk issues that the attempted dual-core experiment suffers from. Once again, the folks from the east demonstrate a relatively simple construction to clearly show excess heat. Would be interesting now for them to add some EM stimulation to the fueled core and gradually adjust until resonance is achieved.

      They are trying to sneak out of the box quietly and with great CERTAINTY.

  • Gerard McEk

    What I read via Google translate is that they used a vacuum oven. The question is what type of heating source they have in it. I assume a IR system, but microwave is also possible. I hope they were able to put the fuelled version in exactly the same place as the location when they did the empty test, otherwise the difference temperature can occur due to shading effects.

    Bob Higgins has made an English translation which is available at our Facebook.

      Thanks Bob and thanks to Bob Higgins .

      Its interesting to note that the excess starts appearing after 200C, just like in Me356’s latest experiment.

      There is no mention of measurement of input power, perhaps the protocol gets rid of any such need, but it would be nice to know how much power was needed. The 21W excess is how much % of input ?

      • Omega Z


        I believe the 21W excess is the difference between the active & dummy tubes.
        i.e. the active tube produced 21W more then the dummy.

        • Sanjeev

          Of course it is.
          What I’m asking is the amount of input power needed to get that excess. Suppose you need only 100 W to get that excess, then it will be more significant compared to, say, when 1000 W are needed for same excess.
          In other words, I’d be interested in knowing the COP.

          • Omega Z

            This test is not very conducive for measuring COP. Your heating up the entire furnace along with a 2nd core. You would need to factor all that out. The error factor would be large.

            This arrangement properly done multiple times tho could rule in/out excess heat. But, I would have placed an equivalent amount of Nickel in the dummy core for good measure.

            This could be a Big time saver for those doing experiments. Knowing you have a winning(Fuel) formula before doing the resistor reactor tests which are more complex. One wouldn’t be wasting his time with a fuel charge that doesn’t & never would produce excess heat.

      • Bob Greenyer

        Well – I think we can deduce it is 250ºC and that there is a line drawn to the baseline at the input temperature of 200ºC.

        As I understand it, it is a vacuum furnace, which may well be insulated. I would imagine that the heat is delivered via Passive IR and any heat generated has to be lost the same way as, due to the vacuum, there is no convective losses.

        • Sanjeev

          Yes, its vacuum, I forgot that bit. Now it makes sense. Thanks Bob for clearing my doubt.

  • Slightly Skeptic

    The short duration of this particular experiment is a major problem. Chemical processes could be responsible for the temperature rise as a result. Also, it is not clear how well calibrated the individual temperature measurements were.

    The basic technique of using an oven to supply heating to two separate devices is quite important and should help to eliminate the typical problems encountered with resistive heating.

  • Sanjeev

    Good to see yet another positive outcome. I guess we can now say that lenr+ has entered mainstream in north-eastern Europe and western asia.
    I liked the idea of a sealed furnace, it eliminates many variables that plague the resistive heating, such as hot spots and wire slipping here and there.

    • Mats002

      At least the mouse effect seams to be validated with certainty.
      The Cat effect which probably need some extra stimulation and balance act for resonance is still not validated with certainty, hope not to far away though!

      • Sanjeev

        You must have noticed that they do not mention Rossi or E-Cat, or even Parkhomov. The references show works of Focardi, Paintelli etc from 1990s.

        • Mats002

          Yes, but I assume they all refering the same phenomena of excess heat from NiH system.
          Me356 ongoing experiment is also a confirmation of this effect.

          This lower level of excess heat should be enough for a BIG awakening in the science community, especially official science and their journals.

  • Bob Greenyer

    This experiment is similar to MFMP contributor Skip’s he has two calibrated furnaces (air inside), he is seeing if a furnace with a fuelled container in takes less power to maintain at a set temperature.

  • Lux Terrea

    How does one go about investing in the E-cat?

  • Игорь, я сказал вообщем о международных конференциях, где казахов не было, по крайней мере с 2006 года, а про 22 РКХТЯ и ШМ я не имел ввиду, да вас и в заявке не было там вроде. А плагиат я подразумевал Росси-Пархомов и еще там кто был из России не помню, вы же повторяли эти опыты… Так что извини, если обидел.
