LENR: spiegate da Axil
Axil e' un commentatore ben informato sulla faccenda LENR.
Interviene spesso con riflessioni di vario tipo.
Quella che segnalo oggi, l'ha postata nel blog di Peter Gluck.
Finalmente, qualcuno che fa il ponte con altri esperimenti, anche del passato, oggi senz'altro interpretabili come manifestazioni di reazioni di tipo LENR.
Penso al motore Papp, nato e morto (piu' o meno) col suo inventore. A tutt'oggi sarebbe il metodo piu' efficiente per produrre forza meccanica direttamente da reazioni LENR, senza passare per la generazione di calore, poi da convertire (con le inesorabili consistenti perdite dovute alle leggi della termodinamica) per esempio con un motore di tipo Stirling in energia meccanica.
Regarding catalytic action in LENR and HHO.
Axil - July 15, 2015
LENR is basically a catalytic reaction. In the Rossi reaction, the nickel powder is a Commercial Off the Shell (COTS) catalytic product. What makes LENR powerful and capable of over unity power production is the addition of an amplifier of the catalytic action. For example, Rossi calls this amplifier his "secret sauce". So LENR is a two step process like an multi stage rocket. The first stage will not get us to where we want to go. We need the booster stage to get into the over unity power zone.
That booster is a mechanism to initially produce and then regenerate nanoparticles through dynamic chemical and/of plasma condensation processes. These particles add power to the LENR catalytic reaction through a nano optical amplification process.
For example, electric arc and/or exploding wire experiments produce nanoparticles through plasma condensation.
The catalyst must burn nanoparticles to get its power generation level into the over unity zone. In the case of HHO, a catalatic converter will produce heat by combining oxygen and hydrogen but it will not reach the over unity zone. A nanoparticle booster must be added. Nanoparticles of water must be created in sufficient quantities to boost the activity of the catalytic converter to over unity.
The way to produce nanoparticles in water is to cavitate it or to expose it to an electric arc. Cavitation is the most effecent way to produce water nanoparticles. After a prolonged period of cavitation, this nanoparticle enriched water when it is chock full of nanoparticles can be used as a feedstock into a catalytic process to extract over unity energy.
This is how Joe Papp produced his secret fuel. His trick was to produce nanoparticles of water and in a latter improvement, nanoparticles of noble gases to get his fuel to over unity levels.
Santelli produces nanoparticles in his special hydrogen gas by decomposing oil waste in an electric arc. That hydrogen gas contains nanoparticles. Rossi gets into the over unity zone by using a secret sauce to produce nanoparticles of lithium and hydrogen to boost the activity of his nickel catalyst.
This is why the nickel particles in the ash produced in the Lugano demo was completely covered with lithium. That lithium came from the residue of nanoparticles of lithium that exist at high temperatures.
