Ruby Carat for Cold Fusion Now web news blog paid Andres Rossi at the Leonardo Crop. Florida Office a visit for a one on one interview. The hot main topics touched where Andrea Rossi cold fusion device technology improvements and safety certification issues. The Italian Inventor who is usually very guarded about his technology was much more forthcoming at this interview.
Originally, nickel bars were tested which have a much weaker contact with hydrogen. Using nickel powder was the logical step. In powder form a universe is created and each Nickel particle represents a star and the contact surface becomes infinite. Rossi also explains that in order to produce efficient electricity, the maximum stable temperature still lies at around 200 C from an E-Cat. When asked why Rossi would not push his cold fusion device further in terms of steam pressure. Theoretically speaking the e-cat is very well able to create more power at higher temperatures but a way to so at 100% secure conditions still has to be looking into. If the temperature gets to a certain point the nickel powder will melt and clump together, eventually separating from the hydrogen which will not in any way create a dangerous situation but will shut done of the cold fusion device.
Biggest issue with any device especially an innovative energy generator like the cold fusion device is safety. U.S cold fusion device scientists working with Rossi communicated that due to the presence of a hydrogen tank, getting a certification will be very difficult. Rossi and his team solved this problem by inventing a hydrogen tablet that stores it by affixing it to molecules. The hydrogen is inside the sealed core of the e-cat. The nickel fusion process takes place inside that core at which the hydrogen attached to molecules are set free and recycled and recaptured after each operation.
