The Evolution of Reactor Design – Differential Scanning Calorimetry

The Evolution of Reactor Design – Differential Scanning Calorimetry

The evolution of reactor designs has lead to a fifth generation LENR reactor. This reactor design builds upon Differential Scanning Calorimetry. Instead of using one power supply (PSU)  to heat up the reactor ports in serial the model features two power supplies that allows the researcher to hold a very accurate temperature variance.

In case of an excess heat event this design allows the researcher to plot out how much excess heat has been produced in Watts.

The two quartz tube ‘hot ports’ sit in ‘class 26’ foamed alumina furnace facing bricks, good up to 1500C+. Each heater is fed from a separate and programmable channel by the PSU which can deliver power up to 50Volts in 0.01V increments. 

If you get excess heat in one reactor you can actually measure the heat in two ways. You can either check the calibration curve which gives you temperature Vs watts input, or adjust the cooler reactor power input until both temperatures match, noting how much extra electrical input that requires. 

This reactor design behaves amazingly well, during the first run we saw the first temperatures going up totally in sync (plus or minus 2 degrees/channel maximum at any one time) in both completely independent systems and then seeing both settle at precisely 947C.  

LFH intends to offer this reactor design as an alternative to the Friendly Robot.
