    Update.

    Rossi says the SK demo will be broadcast from the factory where they are being made.

    It was not cleartto me what your point was. The babblers, who are obviously not engineers, make much of Rossi using a standard fitting . Being computer jocks they apparently don't understand that you use what is available for a…

    Director,
    You keep bashing Rossi for having "inventor's
    syndrome" yet if he gave away his IP he wouldn't be able to raise more money from investors to continue and start commercialization.

    It's not as easy as you seem to think. The get where he is…

    Director,
    I understand your enthusiasm but I don't think enough is known to make a design,
    The sealing shown doesn't take into account the high temperatures or the difference in coefficient of expansion. The material of the tube is not known.
    What…

    I don't think anybody knows Rossi's formula, that anyway has changed over the years.
    MFMP's formula was Greenyer;s guess from hints from various experiments including Rossi, but if it werethe answer we would probably have heard by…

    I don't think enough is known to attempt to replicate it. In any case, the SK series seem to be the reactors going into production, and they would be the ones to replicate if the information is made available. As Rossi says he…

    Don't be so dumb. All Rossi has to do is register it under a name you don;t recognize.

    PhysicsForDummies comments should go on the other thread with the babblers and trolls.

    SK stands for the physicist Sven Kullander (headed the Skeptical Soc.) who viewed one of Rossi's reactors working in Europe and who Rossi said had been most helpful to him.

    You are not "correcting" anything. That you have not seen a building permit means nothing. I doubt you even looked. Rossi is paranoid enough to hide such things. He doesn't want the location to be known.

    "The aim of the January 31st presentation is not to get a validation. We are presenting a service that is based on an industrial production, not on a prototype that needs to be validated. The goal of the presentation is commercial, not…

    You have NO hint, let alone proof that a factory is not being built.

    Please follow the thread guidelines and refrain from posting your unsupported negative opinions. Rossi ws offered financial help to build a factory in PA earlier this year and…

      Will you make other validation tests on the Ecats?
      All the best,

    A typical water heater in the US has ~5 kW and a 80 gallon tank. I changed to gas as it is cheaper.

    So 20 kW would be overkill & more expensive due to the heat exchanger required.

    An Sk might work for a tankless on-demand…

    Jed, I had just posted that my house used ~15 kW. Why on earth would I suggest 1 kW would be adequate?
    100,000 BYU/hr is 29 kW.

    Anyway, the QX is on hold and it is the SK production line that is being built.

    An SK 20kW is…

    I wasn't suggesting single QX. But consider how tiny they are. It would not be a problem to put 15 in a box. Wake up!

    That is hopelessly naive. Rossi is moving as fast as possible. Building reactors with a large industrial company would be far faster than the route you propose.

    Read what I wrote "Origin of the SK" at the bottom of the previous page.

    Our house, near Philadelphia, used a peak of 14900 cu.ft. for the coldest month, for heating the house and water. That is 4367 kWH for the month. 15kW us a long…

    A low melting point metal/alloy would be better ti get a high enough temperature for a gas turbine.
    A liquid metal might cope with EVOs if there are any.

    Glad you enjoy them. I wish I could say the same.

    Axil,
    Your whole comment is close to babble territory, something I hoped would be avoided on this thread.

    Rossi was just experimenting to see what happened with a plasma reactor and certainly didn't have enough information to "design"…
