[lexicon]Alexander Parkhomov[/lexicon] has now managed to setup another reactor with manomenter to measure the internal hydrogen pressure.
Parkhomov tried this time to increase the temperature very slowly, so that the hydrogen, when it is released by the LiAlH4, has more time to be absorbed by the nickle. This way the pressure stays below the maximum the rector vessel tube can resist.
The current reactor is still running at the moment with a COP of 3!

AG Parkhomov managed to make a long-term operating reactor pressure measurements. March 16 from 23:30 the temperature is kept until now [= today, March 19, 2015].
Finally able to make long-term working reactor. The temperature of 1200 ° C is reached at 23:30 on March 16 after a 12-hour gradual heating and lasts until now. Heater power of 300 W, COP = 3.
For the first time successfully managed to mount a pressure gauge installation. With slow heating, the maximum pressure of 5 bar at 200 ° C was reached, and then the pressure was reduced at a temperature of about 1000C to become negative. The most powerful vacuum of about 0.5 bar at a temperature of 1150 ° C was.
With long-term continuous operation is not possible to pour water around the clock. So we had to abandon that used in previous experiments calorimetry based on the measurement of the mass of evaporated water.
Determination of thermal efficiency in this experiment was performed by comparing the power consumed by an electric heater in the presence and absence of the fuel mixture. Without fuel, temperature 1200 ° C is achieved with a power of about 1070 watts. In the presence of fuel (630 mg nickel 60 mg of lithium aluminum hydride), such a temperature is reached at a power of 330 watts. Thus, the reactor produces about 700 watts of excess power ( COP ~ 3.2). (Explanation Parkhomov AG, a more accurate value COP requires a more detailed calculation)
