Rossi Defines the E-Cat

In the meeting with the Energy 2.0 Society last weekend (see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YSwrHNJEvo) Andrea Rossi was asked to provide a short description or definition of the E-Cat. I don’t recall him ever giving such a concise description before, so I thought it might be interesting to post what he said.

“The E-Cat is a fluid heater, and it is a device that heats a fluid that can be water, air, oil, whatever; and it allows to have a COP that is by orders of magnitude higher than the COP that is normally given by normal devices that have to heat fluid. And the COP is coefficient of performance, the ratio between the energy that is produced and the energy that is consumed.”

We have seen the term “fluid heater” before, since that is the title of his US Patent

    Our Wonderful Chinese friends are now way ahead of the West in Quantum Research, hopefully soon they will announce Cold Fusion production to benefit everybody in the World and the World.
    P&F can then be awarded a new living and posthumous Nobel Prize for their discoveries and we can all forget about Rossi’s eight year delay with his dreams of personal Empire building

      Ahh! Leader for Life George shows his true colours again and what better country than China to supply role models for a Leader for Life wannabe like yourself. Their modern history is replete with examples of how they treat the poor and downtrodden. Tell us the story again of how the capitalist pig Rossi destroyed the lives of millions of the worlds poor by withholding his tech. I love that story and you tell it as only a Leader for Life can.

        Tut tut, Always picking on George. He did not make a political statement. The Chinese will one day replicate the Quark or come up with their own device because thats what they do.

        • georgehants

          Thank you Jas. the sooner the better.

      • Alan DeAngelis

        I was about to agree with you but then I put my face into a glue filled paper bag and took deep breaths.

        LarryJ, I don’t care if the life saving technology comes from North Korea or even America, just that it quickly starts being used for the benefit of all.
        Your poor attempt at insults to cover your clear opinion that you do not care about people suffering and dying due to the delay is for you to justify. Please do.

    • Alan DeAngelis

      Yeah, Rossi should have wrapped it all up in a microsecond.

      • georgehants

        Alan, do you mean a “microsecond” to share his discovery eight years ago,for thousands of scientists to now hopefully have advanced way beyond where he is.
        Yes I agree with you.

        • Alan DeAngelis

          F&P told the world and it went nowhere.

            Alan that does not justify Rossi, it just shows, as I have said many times that our system is insane and needs changing.
            But that seems to difficult for the average mind to absorb, so we carry on in the same illogical, stupid way and keep watching CNN etc. etc. and of course blame the Russians etc. to cover every corruption in our own society’s.

      • georgehants

        Morning Alan, what a horrible elite saying, who is defining the “dogs” or “swine”, Rossi you say.
        Many dogs are more loving and caring than many Humans and we exploit the swine for our own benefit.
        We say, share the “pearls” for the benefit of all.

    roseland67, strange reply, no “IF” unlike almost every comment on these pages regarding Rossi from others.
    Just clear common sense and concern.
    If you are not concerned about the damage being caused by the delay, please just say so.

    Dear Andrea,

    This question came up on E-Cat World and I thought I’d pass it along to you”

    “Would like to ask Dr Rossi if the control box in the demo of 60W cooling is suitable for the control of an array ( series / parallel) of QX of 1kW heat output?”

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

    The answer is yes.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Last year you gave the following dimensions for the E-Cat Quark cell:
    November 4, 2016 at 11:35 AM
    Wilson Ramos:
    length 2 cm
    Diam 0.6 cm
    Rating 20 W
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

    This week the QX cell is reported by you to be length 0.6 cm and diameter 0.08 cm.

    Are these cells constructed differently? What is the advantage in reducing the size of the QX cell? Would’t this make assembly very difficult?

    Best of luck with your industrialization process.

    Best Regards,

    Daniel G. Zavela

    Daniel G.Zavela:
    Yes, the design had an evolution.
    The advantage is a higher energy density.
    For a robot the assembly is not particularly difficult. For a human, it takes a lot of more timeand errors.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    I amplify the question of Chuck Davis
    The E-Cat QX system formed by the reactor and the control system:
    1) emit electromagnetic noise?
    2) emits neutrons, gamma rays or other particles and radiation of any kind outside the thermal and light band?
    3) Is a sort of shielding necessary, particularly in power systems?
    Best wishes

    Andrea Rossi

    E.Volpe:
    1- no
    2- all the measurements made did not find the presence outside the Ecat of ionizing radiations above the background, within the margin of error of the instrumentation
    3- the heat exchangers are designed to be intrinsecally a shielding. You need a heat exchanger, whatever use of the heat you want to do.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Hi Andrea, the issue of the overheating of the electronic could depend from the impedance of the load that does not match with the One of the output stage.
    This is a well known issue in ham radio world.
    Any OM can analyze the situation, and hopefully find a solution.
    The phenomena I am writing of is the STATIONARY WAVE RATIO (SWR).

    I appreciate your enthusiasm to help and I want to thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately, the issue is much more complex, still we are resolving the problems.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    I assume that you and your team are working on developing an initial production prototype of an Industrial Product that will be based on a configuration of multiple Quark X modules and an integrated heat-exchanger assembly. If it would be possible, could you indicate whether the Industrial Product might have the following general specifications:
    1.Configuration Nr. 1: An Industrial Product that consists of the integration of two main system components – that includes multiple Quark X units mounted on a standardized heat-exchanger module.
    2.Configuration Nr. 2: An Industrial Product that consists of the integration of three main system components – that includes multiple Quark X units mounted on a standardized heat-exchanger module with an integrated electronics control sub-unit.
    3.Since the physical dimensions of the Industrial Product will be dictated by the number of Quark X modules mounted on the standardized heat-exchanger assembly, could the x and y dimensions the initial Industrial Product be one of the following:
    a)25 cm x 25 cm (or less)
    b)50 cm x 50 cm (or less)
    c)1-meter x 1-meter (or less)
    d)More than 1-meter square
    4.Could the initial Industrial Product assembly contain:
    a)50 Quark X modules (or less)
    b)100 Quark X modules (or less)
    c)500 Quark X modules (or less)
    d)More than 500 Quark X modules
    It is understandable if you cannot reveal this information at this time. However, I want to thank you for your extraordinary dedication and hard work in creating a revolutionary product that will be of benefit to the whole world. I wish you great success in your endeavor.
    Best Regards,
    Bill Hayes
