New Parkhomov LENR Replication Claimed

Thanks to Mats for telling us about a new claim of a successful replication of Alexander Parkhomov’s E-Cat replica.
It’s anthother report from Russia. The author goes by the name of Sergey in this report.

See the details from experiment 13.0 on this page (Google translated from Russian)

He writes:

“Well, that “excess” heat. Within about 40 minutes. gave extra power reactor, about .. (700-380) / 3 = 100W. And, little by little increased temperature (at a rate 1g / min – setting PID controller), and the power first increases, and then began to fall! On the chart you can see everything”

On LENR-Forum there’s a thread where the author of the report has agreed to provide answers to questions.

    This experiment uses an old chinese manufactured depleted nickel–metal hydride battery as a fuel source.

    “A nickel–metal hydride battery, abbreviated NiMH or Ni–MH, is a type of rechargeable battery. The chemical reaction at the positive electrode is similar to that of the nickel–cadmium cell (NiCd), with both using nickel oxyhydroxide (NiOOH). However, the negative electrodes use a hydrogen-absorbing alloy instead of cadmium.”

    Disassembled NiMH AA battery:

    1 – Positive terminal
    2 – Outer metal casing (also negative terminal)
    3 – Positive electrode
    4 – Negative electrode with current collector (metal grid, connected to metal casing)
    5 – Separator (between electrodes)

    How to extract metalized hydrogen (HRM) from a 5 year old battery.

    “In our earlier study, it was demonstrated, that as a result of the thermal runaway of nickel–cadmium batteries, large amounts of hydrogen are released19. The thermal decomposition of electrodes demonstrated that hydrogen accumulates in the electrodes of nickel–cadmium batteries in the process of their operation. So KSX-25 battery with the service period of over five years contains approximately 800 liters of hydrogen. The capacity of an oxide-nickel electrode as a hydrogen absorber was quantified as 13.4 wt% and 0.4 g сm −3 (ref. 20). The obtained result exceeds the earlier obtained results for nickel hydride (obtained using traditional methods) by 10 times21, and for any reversible metal hydrides, including magnesium hydride or complex hydrides by 2 times22,23. This article is devoted to the determination of where and in what form hydrogen accumulates in electrodes of nickel–cadmium batteries. It is possible to physically divide oxide-nickel electrode into two phases – active substance (nickel hydroxide) and metal–ceramic matrix (in the case of sintered electrodes present in KSX-25 batteries). If hydrogen is intercalated into nickel hydroxides then, when nickel hydroxides reacts with acids and forms soluble salts, intercalary hydrogen will be released, because nickel hydroxides disappear and the salt dissolves into the solution. Any type of acid, which forms soluble salts with nickel hydroxide, but does not interact or poorly interact with metal matrix, can be used for this purpose. For example, it possible to use sulfuric acid, which interacts with nickel hydroxides with the formation of soluble salt of nickel sulfate”…and so on…

    One of my criteria for HRM formation is time. This paper illustrates that a nickel battery used for 5 years will produce HRM.

      It could be somehow related to Randell Mills hydrino. The AMH products always contain some nickel, so that they can also contain hydrogen packed inside the nickel matrix and stabilized in lower quantum state by Cassimir states by its cavities. Randell Mills also reported the preparation of similar hydrino samples before some time.

    The results may be associated with irregularity of cooling and geometric construction of reactor, which has been placed into a mullite tube (Al2O3), which may act like chimney once it’s not placed in strictly horizontal position.

      Hi Zephir. Worth remembering that Mullite is not pure Al2O3, but contains a (variable) proportion of Aluminium Silicate.
      FWIW, Rossi never used Mullite, though Parkhomov did -as do MFMP.

      • Obvious

        Rossi describes the use of mullite in some embodiments in his patent applications.

        • Obvious

          I did OCR conversions on Patent applications and checked everything I have on Rossi. No mullite found. Silicon Carbide, Corundum, Alumina (complete with specific heat specs, BTW), ceramic found… but no mullite.

    Fuel is packed into a metal pipe photo:

    If have speculated here in this forum that the Exotic Neutral Particle (ENP) that produces the LENR effect is mobile and can penetrate and pass through the material that most replicators use to confine that ENP and the LENR reaction.

    An iron pipe might be an absolute requirement as a method of LENR confinement. If you remember, Rossi uses steal sheets as structural material in his wafer.

    I also wonder if a grounding wire is affixed to that pipe, can a current to ground be detected in that grounding wire?

    Rossi claims to produce electrostatic based current flow in his wafer based reactor.

    It would be an easy conformation of overunity if a current to ground is detected that is greater in magnitude than that used as input current.
