# A Method of Producing Excessive Heat Output Cyclic Outbreaks in Titanium Powder (Video by Andrew Khrishchanovich).

Thanks to Pelgrim for posting a video that was uploaded to YouTube today by Ukrainian LENR researcher Andrew Khrishchanovich titled “A method of producing excessive heat output cyclic outbreaks in the titanium powder”.
The narration is in Russian (I believe) but there are English subtitles (although at times the English used is not 100 per cent clear).

In this test Andrew experimented with various pressure levels of hydrogen pressure in a cell containing titanium powder, and found that an increase in pressure led to an increase in the temperature of the cell.

For further reference on Andrew’s work, please see Alan Smith’s re-translation of his English language reports here:

I guess you mean Titanium powder instead of hydrogen powder 😉

What is common between the isotopes 31P, 59Co, 112Cd that wre listed in the 1956 patent? We have:

31P : Z=15, N=16
59Co: Z=27, N=32
112Cd: Z=48, N=64

That is, in each listed isotope the number of neutrons is a positive power of two. To expand on it, in the following I list all stable isotopes that have a positive power of two number of neutrons, with their natural abundancies:

He4 Z=2, N=2 (100%)

Li7 Z=3, N=4 (92%)

N15 Z=7, N=8 (0.4%)
O16 Z=8, N=8 (99.8%)

Si30 Z=14, N=16 (3%)
P31 Z=15, N=16 (100%)
S32 Z=16, N=16 (96%)

Fe58 Z=26, N=32 (0.3%)
Co59 Z=27, N=32 (100%)
Ni60 Z=28, N=32 (26%)

Pd110 Z=46, N=64 (12%)
Cd112 Z=48, N=64 (24%)
In113 Z=49, N=64 (4%)
Sn114 Z=50, N=64 (0.7%)

Li-7, Ni-60 and Pd-110 are in the list. (Not Ni-62, but Ni-60.)

Although not mentioned, O-16 is of course part of the patent’s powder as well.

What does this imply, if anything? I don’t know. But it seems an interesting pattern.

Apparently, 112Cd nuclei are less prone to vibrate than nuclei of other Cd isotopes:

(This is “only” a master thesis, but it appears to be a sound one.)

Could this as well be the case in the other isotopes you mention? And might one expect that these nuclei are especially suitable as targets for approaching protons?

Yeah Frank, typo, as Monty said below, titanium powder, not hydrogen powder.

• Frank Acland

Thank you both! It’s fixed now — I was tired 🙂

PV=nRT. Do the numbers.

Assuming it is an ideal gas and there is no chemical or nuclear reaction going on, then one could calculate n, the amount of hydrogen gas introduced at each interval of manual hydrogen gas pressure increase.

But we don’t know if there is no chemical or nuclear reaction going on, or if the gas in those conditions can be considered near ideal.

In short, the experiment as performed is inconclusive regarding excess heat generation.

• DrD

Your correct of course, that was my immediate reaction too. It just means rigorus expermentation is needed. The Skeptics always jump on loopholes like this.

• US_Citizen71

With P increasing n and T both could increase.

• Alan DeAngelis

I like this because it is such a simple system like the TiH2

H~Ti(50)~H > Cr(52)* > He(4) + Ti(48) 9.21 MeV

Could heat induce the infrared symmetrical stretching of the
polarizable soft (by HSAB theory) titanium-50 hydride, H~Ti(50)~H bonds as it would in carbon dioxide, O=C=O ? (at 10:45 min in this video).

PS
I think this is what happens in palladium deuterium LENR to
give helium and 24 MeV of heat without gamma rays.

D~Pd~D > Cd* > Pd + He
24 MeV (with no gamma ray)

One more video, generating excess heat?

• Zephir

I’d expect instead, that at the presence of hydrogen the fusion would run and it would heat the spiral more – or not? The hotter “experiment na vozduche” (experiment on air) could simply mean, that the titanium spiral gets oxidized so it burns and gets hotter.
