eCat Applications



Jan 1, 1970
I did a little looking around at eCat and found some conception pics
of what an eCat would look like for home application. I also found a
COOP of 6 listed.

It appears that although the eCat is rated in kW, that this is kW of

Anyone have any idea how eCat intends to use the heat generated?
Apparently this can be up to the melting point of nickel. But what
working fluid?

I'm guessing that you probably wouldn't want it as gamma rays. There may
be a potload of beta particles being produced inside the containment
vessel, which might allow eventual direct extraction of electrical
energy - but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that.

Heat is good.

For sake of accuracy, the E-Cat only /makes/ (not uses) heat. Rossi
started out focused on commercial power generation, and has become
distracted by the notion of selling brazillions of space heaters.
Ahhh. And what fabulous space heaters they are. And domestic hot water.

I'm intrigued by the COP of 6. That implies to me that there is some
energy that must be expended to keep it running. I don't think this is
the heater, it seems to me that there must be some pump that pulses the
hydrogen to create very high pressures. Otherwise this would be
completely self sustaining and have a COP closer to infinity.

I can see this as a sandwich of ultrasonic transducers creating high
pressure waves in the hydrogen gas. In fact there are lots of ways to
have local high pressure points in acoustic devices.

All this is mere conjecture.
He may suffer from ADOS syndrome, like a lot of the rest of us.

That, is a new light on the subject!
If you can prevent the nickel from puddling, it can probably go a lot
higher than that - I'll hazard a guess that Rossi will aim for an
operating temperature safely below the boiling point of water.

I would think the fail safe for coolant loss is when the machine melts
into a puddle!
