From peter Gluck blog:
Does anybody know Yaroslav Starukhin, and his replication effort ?
Maybe it is already referenced here (so many effort that I forget).
The first reactor cell (think so it would be best to call) from the ceramic tube is ready, the fuel used by Parkhomov Nickel (after the first experiments with quartz, Bob Griner of MFMP sent me 2.3 grams of nickel powder).
size ( DxdhL): 10x5x140 mm
rod of circular cross section
size (DhL): 5,0x40 mm
Material: alumina ceramic grade S799
Max. operating temperature of the material: 1600 ° C
The fuel composition of nickel 500mg 50mg LiAlH4 heater Cantal - 2m = 57 turns, 10.58 ohms diameter 0.6mm (thickness did not apply as the wound in two strands, it would have reduced resistance is therefore very low).
For heat-resistant sealing cement used prescription Parkhomov. Al2O3 powder ~ 2 μm particle size - 1.5 g (powder particle size 2mkm) ZnO powder Particle Size Unknown - 0.5 G (powder during mixing strongly pounded) Na2SiO3 solution 37.5% - 2.9 ml (used in normal stationery. adhesive).
First two powder components have been carefully mixed and ground to a homogeneous mass mukoobraznoy after added stationery.
glue all over again, long stirred up smetannoobraznogo state (important, no lumps should not be).
While the cement has dried, yet you can still wash, after drying, it can not be more than where or clean off, so tools must be cleaned with water immediately after use mixture.
The cell is assembled as in the photo, the two sleeves are recessed into the phone to 5mm, 50mm cavity tubes filled with fuel.
Full sealing spiral has to slightly increase the service life of Cantal. The thermocouple is not installed, the experiment will be collected before the second cell without fuel temperature measurements which are held inside and outside and since the findings make the necessary calibration for the working cell. Measurements of the temperature will produce a thermocouple attached to the surface of the reactor.
Launch date is scheduled for the morning of Saturday, May 23. If there are no problems with the internet, how the last time to fire up the stream pre-informed group.
