    Airflow Calorimeter Notes

    Attached are notes that detail the mechanical and electrical construction of an airflow calorimeter suitable for making measurements on a Mizuno-type apparatus. The notes include construction details, circuit schematics, and a…

    Parts for the Sorensen power supply arrived today. The cell shown above is now installed in the airflow calorimeter. First calibration run will be with the cell open to the atmosphere (CF flanges in place but not tightened down) but otherwise configured…

    Heater Jacket for Mizuno Cell

    I received the ceramic braided nichrome and wound approximately 20 feet of it around the 8"x1.5" CF nipple. The windings are held in place with Sauereisen type 78 ceramic cement. A type K TC is placed inside the thermowell.…

    "This is similar to what I found with my small cell. A heater in the thermowell resulted in lots of out-gassing from the small metal tube due to its exposure to high temperature."

    Magicsound,

    Sounds like a good idea and one that I had been considering.…

    Location of Heater for a Mizuno-type Experiment

    I have completed constructing a somewhat smaller version of a Mizuno cell: 8" long x 1.5" tube OD. Ends terminate with 2.75" CF flanges: one end with a 1/4" VCR fitting and the other with a 1.33" CF reducer.…

    Question regarding D2 gas Purity.

    Does anyone have any insight regarding the required purity of D2 for a Mizuno replication? My reason for asking is that, rather than bother with bottled D2, I'm going with a hydrogen generator. There is a minimum amount…

    Getting back into experimentation.

    It's been a couple of years of hiatus caused by family medical issues, but these seem to be under control, at least for now. I have fabricated a Mizuno-type apparatus and am about to start. The only missing ingredient is…
