    Oh, I dont know what to say. I wanted to be helpful.
    If my posts are problematic and unwanted then I will stop writing. I have nothing to loose.
    Simply I am unable to post the plot because I am not at work.

    Now I have to focus at the Palladium deposition method. Mizuno is saying more is better.
    I am extremely eager to see SEM and EDX data from his Mesh. Then it will be enough to reach to the same condition.

    Then there is another aspect for thinking. Why new…

    Paradigmnoia No, this would be always similar to a log curve.
    If there is non linearity it mean there is more than one heat source.

    Yes, tomorrow.

    JedRothwell Yes, 15:35. Same curve was confirmed by secondary temperature measurement point.

    Calibration curves are very different, as one would expect.

    Another power off temp curve.

    No problem. With help of EDX I will analyze and find the best way to rub Pd at the mesh. I will share the results hopefully during next week.

    Is Palladium plating reaching similar results as rubbing?

    Where I can get Pd same as Mizuno have?

    I would like to have air-flow calorimetry but this is not area where I am confident. I am doing measurement in the way I understand and can set properly to avoid errors.
    I will continue.

    I am measuring 3 temperatures all the time:
    1. reactor shell the hottest point - IR Camera
    2. reactor shell end cap - center point - IR Gun
    3. reactor core - heater - thermocouple

    All 3 temperatures were above calibration. Still I dont want to make any…

    JedRothwell Yes, you are very right. Calibration was done with internal parameters same or as close as possible to the fueled run. To make a proper approximation of results I made calibration on multiple pressure levels and at power levels from 50 -…

    I would like to know how to resolve my Palladium problem since I am almost certain it is reason for very poor results. Simply my imagination of rubbing was very, very different. I think that all previous steps during preparation were of almost zero…

    Cooldown looks like this. Simply power off - I had to power it off anyway, because I can't run it overnight due to safety reasons.

    Alan Smith No, the geiger is running for years in the same lab and it never reacted in this way. I believe I can reproduce it but I don't feel comfortable to irradiate myself. The geiger might be unable to measure what it is actually and if it is…

    Although it is very small difference, I am now rather inclined there is excess heat. At 200W power I am getting readings from calibration at 180W or slightly better. So there is at least additional 20W coming out of this.
    Since all 3 temperatures are…

    I am at 180W now. The temperature is still rising. I can't say we have excess heat. But I can say the temperatures are higher beyond error than during calibration.
    Temperature inside the core (heater temperature) is 675°C 677°C now. It should be 652°C…

    First update from the run. It is running just for 2 hours and the reactor is just slightly over 100°C. As far as I can tell, there is no excess heat.
    But during one instance related to the pressure - I try to maintain constant pressure in the cell - there…

    Everything is prepared for Mizuno replication, first run.
    To ensure best condition of the mesh I did the palladium rubbing today. BUT rubbing process was not smooth at all. It took few hours.
    Palladium was too hard. And annealing (multiple times with slow…

    Keep you fingers crossed, on 8th I will start fueled run.
    I believe my calibration is thorough, measurement and instruments solid.
    I am proceeding exactly according Mizuno paper, with 3pcs Mesh of same specs.

    If experiment will fail I will get data from EDX…

    Post
    It would be nice to ask Rossi if he think his original E-Cat is similar with Mizuno reactor?
    Maybe the only difference is that he is using Lithium not for reaction but for lowering pressure. Lithium will clean the chamber from impurities in the gas maybe.…
