    3g of Ni powder, .45g of LAH, .2g of pure Li metal.

    The coil was at 250 W which gives 580 C in the fuel. I held the power steady there for 40 minutes. The pressure was holding constant at that point ( 1.8 bar). When the rapid…

    Not sure I follow. Are you assuming that the H atoms are only absorbed on the Ni particle surfaces. If it is some new and unique phenomenon, why wouldn't H atoms be absorbed throughout the mass of each Ni particle?

    Can't find…

    No way to know where it went. I assume Ni since there was a lot more mass of it compared to Li.

    Coil was at 250W which gives 580 C in the fuel. Had just stepped power to 600W, but there was no time for the reactor to climb much…

    Thanks Bob. For the Suhas dusty plasma reactor, will you publish a list of equipment you need such as the ultrasonic equipment to do fuel processing? I might buy the same equipment to add to my set-up.

    Fluidizing the fuel by…

    I looked at the paper. It is a paper on theory and it does not show the detailed steps needed to create an experiment that can be replicated. If Rossi did that he'd have to give away his IP, assuming he has some.

    No one has created…

    Thanks Bob. I have based things I am doing on what's known about the eCat from the Lugano report, Parkhomov's work, and some on me356 comments. I'm not trying to following any of them exactly. For that matter, none of them…

    Rends, thanks, any evidence that this might help or just a hunch?

    Here are the steps I used for live reactor testing this week (pic below).

    · Mix six diverse Ni powders in equal portions.

    · Place Ni powder in a 99% relative humidity environment for 40 hours.
    · Bake Ni powder under vacuum for 6 hours at 250…

    Thanks for this magicsound. I found a spreadsheet I made about a year ago using the ideal gas law, and interestingly I came up with 4040 psi for .1g of LAH - pretty close to what you have. I have not had a chance to review your…

    Regarding pressure vs. temperature (coil power really), below is a plot of an early test run I made. The x axis is time. Used an alumina tube. 2.5g of fuel and 15% of it is LAH. No pure Li metal included. No external H2 gas feed used. Pressure reached…

    Interesting about seeing water vapor. Surprised that a small amount of Ni powder could produce that.

    Regarding the "protocol very similar" - that's because I got the 200 C number from the lookingforheat site. :)

    I also found 200 C…

    Thanks Eric. Yes, it's just that most people think the more deoxidized your Ni powder is the better. So I'm trying to stick with conventional wisdom now.

    Thanks Bob for the great inputs. Got it now not to expect shiny Ni powder after treating with vacuum and H2 cycling.

    Regarding the powder, my understanding is that nanopowders are considered to be those having particle sizes…

    I’m another person trying to get a LENR device working, and this is my first post. I have a very good set-up with an H2 gas feed, a vacuum pump, and overall automated control for live reactor testing. I’ve done some Parkhomov-like runs, but I’ve…
