The Cold Fusion Reactor ( CFR v2.0 ) is fully based on the work of the researchers Tadahiko MIZUNO and Tadayoshi OHMORI from the Hokkaido University in Japan.
You will find below a preliminary test about this new device.
1 - Cold Fusion Reactor v2.0 - Description :
The Cold Fusion Reactor v2.0 is composed of a 1000 mL borosilicate glass filled with a 600 mL of demineralized water and 16.6 g of Potassium Carbonate ( K2CO3 ), the electrolyte solution used is 0.2 molar ( 0.2 M, ).
The Cathode used is a pure tungsten rod ( W ) 2 mm diameter and 25 mm length from tungsten TIG electrodes (WP) commonly used forTIG and Plasma welding. The Anode used is composed of stainless steel mesh maintained with a stainless steel shaft. All the wires connections are made with a 1.5 mm2 copper flexible wire gained with silicon.
2 - Experimental test setup :
The CFR v2.0 is powered with a DC voltage through a bridge rectifier connected directly to the 220V AC power grid line. The voltage input has been measured with a digital oscilloscope Fluke 123 with a Shielded Test Lead STL 120 ( 1:1, 1 Mohms/225 pF ). The current input has been measured with a current clamp CIE Model CA-60A ( Accuracy DC Amps ±1.5%, AC Amps±2% (40Hz-2kHz), AC Amps±4%(2kHz-10kHz), AC Amps±6%(10kHz-20kHz) ). An additional Power-Meter EKM 265 has been connected between the power grid line and the CFR power supply. This Power-Meter EKM 265 is used to compare the real time electrical power input measured with the recorded datas by the digital oscilloscope. The temperature has been measured with a type "K" temp probe ( NiCrNi ) connected on a VC506 digital multimeter ( -20°C to +1200 °C with an accuracy of +/- 3% ). ( see the photo above ).

Test procedure :
1) The temperature of the K2CO3
solution in the CFR has been set initially to 78°C.
2) The weight of the CFR has been measured initially, it was 918 g.
3) The power supply has been switched on continuously and the Voltage/Current datas has been recorded in the Fluke 123 digital oscilloscope used as a data logger, up to a temperature of 94°C.
4) Then the weight of the CFR has been measured, it was 900 g.
The run time of the CFR has been 57.2 seconds.
During the test, the production of steam is strong ( see above )
POWER INPUT/OUPUT and EFFICIENCY of the CFR v2.0 :
The Voltage/Current datas logged give an average electrical power input of 844.9 Watts during 57.2 seconds, so this gives :
ELECTRICAL ENERGY INPUT = 48328 Joules
A Power-Meter EKM 265 has also been connected on the power grid line at the input of the CFR power supply.
The measured input with the Power-Meter EKM 265 is in line with the measured power by the digital scope Fluke 123.
The evaporated water in the CFR during the full boiling was 18 mL. We know that we need 2260 J/g to vaporize water. The temperature rise of the 600 mL was 16°C. So, this gives :
ENERGY OUTPUT = ( 18 x 2260 ) + ( 600 x 16 x 4.18 ) = 80808 Joules
Power OUTPUT = 1412.7 Watts, Net Power Gain = 567.8 Watts
|Energy OUTPUT/INPUT = 80808 / 48328 = 1.67|
The Cold Fusion Reactor CFR v2.0 is now ready to give a great amount of power with a great efficiency...
