Tales From the Laboratory of Experimental Physics: LENR Research in Ukraine and Russia by Andrew Hrischanovich (Parts 2 and 3 Added — Alan Smith)

The following post has been submitted by Alan Smith.

UPDATE (Feb 5, 2016): Two new documents, Parts 2 and 3 have been submitted by Alan Smith which provide an English language clarification of the work of Andrew Hrischanovich at the Laboratory of Experimental Physics in Ukraine and Russia. The original website with a difficult English translation is here: http://tet.in.ua/index.php/en/ Links and embedded documents for the complete new English translation by Alan are below.

    There is nothing here but an empty grey box

    • Edac

      Are you using Internet Explorer? I get the same grey box. If I access the page with Chrome browser the document is shown correctly.

      Frank must be embedding it differently to his normal method.

  • Skip

    Geez Frank. You must already be harvesting Time from your Orbo. You made this post in the future.
    I guess it doesn’t have to be in your possession to work…

    In speculating about the effect on the reaction produced by the strange reaction altering mechanisms introduced by the water cooling circuit, it might be that a state of cavitation occurs in the cooling circuit produced by water hammering or the water pump when vacuum is produced due to water boiling. This cavitation might have produced water crystals as seen by LeClair which passed into the reactor through both the copper cooling pipe and the stainless steel reactor walls.

    Another possibility is the onset of a reaction precipitating effect produced by sharp temperature/pressure changes cause by the chaotic water cooling circuit.

    • Zephir

      You’re collecting and bringing here interesting facts, but you’re extrapolating/combining them rather naively. Unfortunately the people, who are able to to decide it tend to ignore subtle indicia instead. A little bit more balanced attitude would be useful here.

      • Axil Axil

        Well provide some.

        • Zephir

          The high speed collisions of metal dust soaked with hydrogen we already had there from Russians. The principle simply is in colliding of large grains with high speed.

          http://www.proatom.ru/modules.php?file=article&name=News&sid=6384

          The trick can be understood by shaking of sand dust and pebbles in the closed vessel. When you shake pebbles, the sparks appear due to large inertia of pebbles. When you shake the dust (or even isolated dust), then the energy of collisions remains low and the sparks will not emerge (not to say about overcoming of Coulombic barrier).

          If Frank Acland (or his spam filter) wouldn’t delete my comments from here, you would already know about it too. I’m not posting my ideas and know-how here just for private pleasure of web site owner, but for all people who can read it.

  • I just scanned this report, but I did not figure out whether they got positive results with their titanium fuel?
    The just talk about pressure?

    Can someone clearify if they had COP > 1 and if it’s worth for replicators to get in touch with this team?

    • Alan Smith

      Hi Barry. The claim is that following their procedure they have got a system where the adsorption / desorption of hydrogen by titanium is exothermic in both directions. They acknowledge no COP figures, but suggest that the reactions are very energetic.

      • In a part of their web site they do seem to be suggesting ‘COP’ in the region of 3-4 using LENR augmented electric heaters:

        “On the basis of the conducted research we can already start making and production of cost-effective electric boilers and heaters. Expected savings of this type of heating elements, in comparison with conventional heating elements, 3-4 times.” …. “The advantage (over ceramic at 1300ºC) the proposed fuel tubes in the fact that the working temperature is in the range 650°C-950°C., allowing them to be used in the production cycles, high temperature and currently used conventional heating elements.”

        • Alan Smith

          You are quite correct, they do mention this figure. But that is in a part of the report I have not yet reached. Parts 2 and probably 3 are to follow if there is sufficient interest in a (hopefully) clearer account of the experiments.

    • Over on the ‘Always Open’ thread, the YouTube link below was posted by Artefact several days ago. The simple 650kHz induction coil and titanium hydride pellet reactor would be fairly easy to construct, although the cost and availability of titanium hydride powder could be a problem:

      • Axil Axil

        Also included in the experiments is a DGT type reactor that produces about the same COP.

        “in addition to six kilowatts we get 12 kilowatts of nuclear power, for a total of efficiency – 300%. This mechanism generate additional heat from nuclear power is precisely that necessary thermal / barotsiklirovanie and more frequently per unit of time we will be able to implement it, the higher the efficiency of the process.”

        Also

        “Presumably, if the receiving efficiency of the process at the level of 400-600% is needed to produce 1 cycle per minute, that’s about four days of operation when the mass of the powder 56 grams and generated maximum power of about 40 kW/h. 560 grams forty days , kilogram – 70 days, at a cost of one kilogram of 300-400 grew. rubles (referring to titanium), it looks quite satisfactorily at the level of market prices. But this is only a preliminary pessimistic calculations and according to some, when compaction and alloying titanium carbon, copper, additives cycles of sorption/desorption can reach up to 100 000.”

      • Warthog

        The problem is the circuitry needed to drive that induction coil. “Back in the day (mid-1960’s)” I did some research using induction heating (500W). The “driver” was about 3ft wide, 3 ft deep, and about 5 ft tall. That gizmo used tubes, and was about the same output frequency as shown here. We also had a higher frequency unit (same output power) that was “smaller”…..about 3 x 3 x 3.

        Perhaps today’s solid state elements allow smaller units.

  • Well, titanium powder is much more expensive than nickel powder. In any case, I hope this is real.

    • Alan Smith

      Not that much difference Christopher- and considering that you only need grams of the stuff it won’t break the bank.

    • Zephir

      Actually the titanium powder is used quite often in sparking firecracks and as an additive of rocket fuels
