I recently sent some questions to Andrea Rossi about his work on the E-Cat SK. Below are the questions and his responses.
1. You said that the testing took place at a laboratory that was not your own lab. Why did you go to a different lab for this test?
I needed particular instrumentation I do not have and also for safety reasons, due to the fact that the prototype of the SK could have been dangerous. I have paid a specialized laboratory for this test
2. You have said that the test lasted two days and it ran at 100 kW — how did you manage to keep it cool enough not to melt down during that time?
With a heat exchanger
3. What was the average temperature of the SK in your recent test?
Between 1 and 2 eV
4. What are the differences between the E-Cat SK and the E-Cat QX, and what are some of the advantages of the SK over the QX?
Sorry, but these particulars are confidential. I can say that I had to study electronics to understand issues that allowed us to invent components that do not exist in commerce and that resolved many problems, I would say in a very simple way. Most of times things that seem impossible are not impossible, so far you invent something that makes them not impossible. It is hard, also brutal, because you must study for hours glued to a chair and a table for 20 hours without losing the focus, sometimes is frustrating because you do not understand what you are studying , but you must insist until you understand, but at the end it works.
5. It sounds like for many months you have been getting ready for production of the E-Cat QX as your first commercial product. Do you now change your plans and start preparing to produce the SK instead of the QX?
Not instead, but also. Besides, attention: the QX has a story of a Sigma 5, I deem it reliable, the SK is still dangerous, but we have to make a lot of work to make it reliable and at this point it is very worth to try to make it ready by the end of the year. The Customer that already has made with us an agreement to buy the heat possibly will receive an SK instead of a QX. Maybe. Not impossible. Working on it.
6. Do you have any need in your R&D to advance beyond the E-Cat SK?
I always have this need, to advance beyond anything: it is what gives me life.
7. What makes the difference in the higher power output of the E-Cat SK compared to the QX?
The dimension and the circuitry to make the control. The reactor of the 1 kW QX has a volume of several cc, the SK has a volume of about half liter and a much more sophisticated series of inventions inside it.
8. We saw the E-Cat QX at the Stockholm presentation Can you provide some images of the E-Cat SK?
Externally you can see a box 4 times bigger that the one of the video of the Stockholm demonstration.
Internally will remain for ever a closed box, also for our Customers: as you know, the control will be completely made by means of restricted transmission channels from our heaquarter in the USA, wherever in the world the plant will be.
9. What can you tell us about the two other persons who were with you at the E-Cat SK test? What was their reaction to the test that they witnessed?
They are specialists of the matter and PhD in Physics. Thay think the toy can be very useful.
10. Some people think that Andrea Rossi is coming up with a new version of the E-Cat just as way to delay the introduction of a commercial product (which they suppose will never appear). How do you respond to that charge?
I have been also informed that many bet money on the fact that I will never put the Ecat on the market. I hope they did not bet a fortune, because, along the teaching of the Lord, I must love my enemies and I really do. Besides, I am grateful for any expression of sincere opinions. To them who say you “hey, look at Rossi: he pretends to have new models to run away from his promises to put any product in the market!”, it would be proper for you to respond ” Rossi told me to say thank you for your opinion”.
Thanks also to you and your readers for the attention to the work of our team.
