Andrea Rossi Energy Catalyzer: March Update

Andrea Rossi ECAT – March update

"There is only one thing that counts for me: to work and to make a valid product. If there will be competition, whomever they are, they will have to fight against a very tough competitor. We will be very tough to be beaten." ~Andrea Rossi

Here is a summary of the latest ECAT developments made by Andrea Rossi:
•Andrea Rossi has developed a new design of the ECAT Home unit which is 33cm x 33cm x 6cm and can be put vertically or horizontally. Total weight is 10 kg
•The technology is completely changed, new patents have been applied for, an intense testing program is going on with very good result
•Leonardo Corp will defend its Intellectual Property against copycats in all necessary courts
•The new ECAT Home unit has two simple connections for input and output of water
•No pictures will be released until the product is for sale
•By law a customer has 60 days of time to give back the device if unsatisfied, and Leonardo Corp give all the guarantees required by the law
•Production capacity of new factory is one million units per year
•The hydrogen canister has been removed and the hydrogen is now stored inside a solid material due to safety reasons
•There is a new control system for both the ECAT Home unit and the ECAT 1MW Plant which are made from an undisclosed supplier, not National Instruments
•The only certified places to pre-order an ECAT are either Info@leonardocorp1996.com and/or via the order form at ECAT.com
•Certification from UL – Underwriters Laboratories is in process
•The highest temperature that could be achieved in the reactor of the domestic ECAT is just below the melting point of Nickel
•No radiation has ever been detected outside the ECAT
•The ECAT has already got important authorizations
•The COP (Coefficient of Performance) is 6
•Licenses to sell and market ECATs has been granted to licensees, not yet published
•When Leonardo Corporation will execute the commercial strategy, the entire network of the licensees will be published
•Andrea Rossi anticipates that an air conditioned generator and a electricity generator will eventually be suitable accessories for the ECAT
•Siemens has shown an electricity solution for Andrea Rossi with 33% efficiency for 25MWe at 250C, 40bar and a smaller version with 30% efficiency for 5-8MWe also at 250C, 40bar in the secondary circuit

  1. Hi Zeke, I’ve been hacking on my wife’s business computer system, for the last 4 days to put the main programs that she uses on a new computer. Both main programs had features to prevent unauthorized use and were on a dieing windows 98 machine and we needed them working on a windows7 machine. As well, I had to fix Kluges created by “professionals” in her office network before hand. So I haven’t been at my computer for most of the last few days.

    Nice condensation of the latest on Rossi’s Ecat. I’m not sure that the domestic Ecat will operate at the melting point of nickel. The last I read was max of 250F. from 3 units in series. The industrial package may be able to operate as high as 450C.

    “Dear Dr Joseph Fine:
    Yes: the domestic E-Cats cannot sustain high temperatures, for example: no steam.
    Warmest Regards,
    A.R.”

    I try to read all the comments at Rossi’s blog @ http://www.journal-of-nuclear-physics.com/?p=580 to keep up on the latest about the Ecat. I have ordered 2 units for testing on our farm so I want to know what to expect and when to expect it. pg

  2. Hi PG, there you are. Of course first things first, and that means your wife’s computer!

    This is all information from an email sent out by ECat.com. I will place the link at the bottom of the post with profuse apologies to you for not publishing the reference. :) It is particularly exciting about the licenses and authorizations lining up. Wikipedia says that the US patent office does not issue any patents for LENR:

    “The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) now rejects patents claiming cold fusion.[115] Esther Kepplinger, the deputy commissioner of patents in 2004, said that this was done using the same argument as with perpetual motion machines: that they do not work.[115] Patent applications are required to show that the invention is “useful”, and this utility is dependent on the invention’s ability to function.”

    Cheers.

    another summary of Rossi Ecat failure look it up Rossi very carefully worded his application to avoid
    Lenr – Rossi DESPERATELY WANTS A PATENT!
    Cmon tell the truth!

    Nobody wants more DEMOS!

    I saw her today at the reception
    A glass of wine in her hand
    I knew she was gonna meet her connection
    At her feet was a footloose man

    You can’t always get what you want
    You can’t always get what you want
    You can’t always get what you want
    But if you try sometimes well you might find
    You get what you need

    And I went down to the demonstration
    To get my fair share of abuse
    Singing, “We’re gonna vent our frustration
    If we don’t we’re gonna blow a 50-amp fuse”

    You are are saying “just buy into this with no proof because we have had “demonstrations”
    Once Rossi/DGT allows an independent test (not demo)
    in which Rossi is only there to WATCH and not touch anything or – as Rossi says the market
    decides by actually selling an Ecat to reputable customers who are
    non – secret! And without reservation or restraint says THIS THING WORKS!
    I know call me a skeptic because i want one little thing – PROOF!
    Just as you do when you go to buy that used car!
    Do you just listen to the salesman or do you actually take steps
    of your own to see if it is a good deal? (PROOF)

    What do you do ?
    Listen to the salesman or do you look up CARFAX?
    Ask a mechanic?
    See if it runs? Does it burn oil?
    Are the tires worn?
    Take it for a TEST drive?
    Or do you JUST LISTEN TO THE SALESMAN?
    Why would a device that overturns the laws of physics be any different
    than a simple USED CAR?

  5. Jetmech: Thank you for your comments. You are welcome to your skepticism about LENR. I am curious about your standard for proof in the case of Rossi’s accomplishment of attaining a stable, energetic reaction in his E-Cat. He has reported byproducts of gamma, x-rays and temperatures of less than 200C and hotter. These results are published and repeatable and available for inspection, and there have been filmed demonstrations with academic witnesses. There are many questions we all have about LENR, so here is a link to frequently asked questions which you may peruse if you have the time or inclination:
    http://faq.ecat.com/

    While you remain skeptical, as you can see, PG Sharrow in his comment above has chosen to pre-order two E-Cat units to use on his farm. It is his money and he has chosen to risk his resources based on the evidence he has seen. The companies involved in research and production are also willing to risk capital based on the performance they have seen. So this is the choice each person must make. On the other hand, there are certainly some academics who have determined that LENR is impossible and will never revisit or re-examine their conclusions.

    Do not twist my words i am not skeptical about LENR! I am skeptical about Rossi/DGT! Do they even have a workable device?
    A factory?
    When PG Sharrow gets his ECat I would love to see it working on you tube.
    How long will Mr PG Sharrow wait for that Ecat? 1 Year? 2Years?

    March 9, 2012 at 1:31 am

  7. Jetmech: I cannot help you with your personal estimation of Andrea Rossi’s character. In response to your second question, PG Sharrow has said “It looks like Rossi is on scheduled for production of the Ecat to start this fall. pg”

  8. I have waited over 20 years, what is another. I have studied the science of atomic energy for nearly 60 years and the Rossi device appears to me to be possible though crude. This is not the only path to successful LENR but it is pointing the way to the needed engineering improvements. You can be sure that I will test and report on the Ecat. I am very curious to see if Rossi has correctly included all the necessary parts or if it is incomplete and therefor barely functional. pg.

  9. We all have enjoyed your expertise and comments on LENR quite a bit, PG.

    And how many of us have married so well that we can preorder 2 E-Cats?
