I am trying to investigate elevated radiation phenomenon and I found very interesting behavior with Nickel-Hydrogen system.
My cell is just Nickel powder and Hydrogen. Heater is made of Kanthal wire.
What I found out could be very important for E-Cat replicators.
For few years people were wondering why some reactor can load so much hydrogen and some can't. Pressure is basically constant in some cases.
The key factor is container material!
I found that my Nickel powder is very active and that it can transform Hydrogen molecules to Protons! And that it can do this for months!
I did the research several months ago but I was unable to understand what is happening.
I found that if Nickel is contained in a Stainless Steel tube then protons can escape freely even at low temperature such as 200°C. And I could transform all the hydrogen to protons until there is near vacuum. And it can do this again and again.
Example: I fill container with hydrogen to 10 Bars. And then I will let it run at 200°C for few days and then there is around 10 mBar (absolute pressure). This mean that there is no leak, instead hydrogen, its protons are just fired from the cell. Then I can repeat it for lets say 10 times and result is always same. Near vacuum pressure without any slow down.
Then I will take same Nickel powder and fill it in a high purity Alumina tube. I can do the same and guess what? Nothing. Pressure is constant.
What does it mean? Stainless steel is Proton conductor even at low temperature. But if Nickel powder is not inside and I repeat the test even at 1000°C then pressure is constant at this temp too!
What are implications? Nickel-Hydrogen system itself can generate unlimited amount of Protons. But it is necessary to focus at the container material and anything that is around. Only then there will be excess heat.
I also found that at elevated temperatures hydrogen is transformed to Protons even faster.
I think that these Protons carry very low energy for this reason they can't be detected easily.
Let me know your opinion.
