Re: Seeking professional diff pump info...

<r>I am a little late to the discussion but here is my input. <br/> <br/> The temperature of the diffusion pump will change as a function of pressure. Boiling boiling point of diffusion pump fluids are often rated at 0.5 torr. This is usually the pressure that the diffusion pump is first operated du...

Re: A Superlative paper on LENR/CANR by Bockris

<t>I have been to many a cold fusion/transmutation website. My concerns still stand. The scientific method is NOT well applied there. <br/> I have yet to see ANY work is documented in sufficient detail so that others can duplicate it. <br/> <br/> Claims of impurities in the starting materials affect...

Re: A Superlative paper on LENR/CANR by Bockris

<t>Richard,<br/> <br/> Today, when I read my response to this thread from last evening I did not read quite the way that I wanted. I did not intend any disrespect or closing off of any ideas to you Richard or anybody else on the board. It seems that typing sometimes is not a good method of communica...

Re: A Superlative paper on LENR/CANR by Bockris

<t>When I read this paper, I find little scientific method there. Where are is the statistical treatment of ANY of the data? The levels are miniscule, inconsistant, and may even be from the container if they even exist. You do not know if they threw away dozens of data sets that did not agree with t...

Re: What to do until the fusion jackpot hits Part 2

<t>For a while, I thought that the best thing would be for gas to get to $10 per gallon and stay there. This would force the hand for implementation of alternatives and force people to take notice and change thier actions. IN reality, I think that people are way too out of touch with the environment...

Re: Gas prices- possible solution

<t>Many ways to improve the efficiency of combustion were explored in the mid to late 1970s. One product called XRG used a small amount of the phenol based version of TNT explosive as what they called a combustion catalyst. The product also contained a surfactant and alcohol. Gains of up to 15% in g...

Re: Gas prices- possible solution

<t>Unfortunately, this is a perpetual motion machine and therefore can not work. The energy input for electrolosis of hydrogen and oxygen from water is exactly the same for the combustion of the two. You get out only what you put in. Of course you don't even do that well as nothing chemical is 100% ...

Re: Bicron 2m2/2

<t>The dynode string resistors were only 140 Kohm on my socket. I replaced them with some 1 Meg resistors and my $12 Bicron now cost me $13 with the resistors added. <br/> <br/> It runs great now at 1,000 volts. I can easily detect one of my 1 inch uraninite specimens at 6 feet (2 meters). The sampl...

Re: Bakeout procedure

<t>Swagelock fittings are not the greatest for high vacuum. They were the source of my early leaks. Solder them together or use flare connections if you must. The valve stems themselves may also be leaking in air as they are not designed for ultra low vacuums. It is tough to beat conflats with UHV v...

Re: Pulsing in deuterium

<t>Yes, very good input by all. <br/> <br/> Let me ask the question another way. If two deuteriums fused, how close would adjacent deuteriums have to be for them to fuse also. More precisely, how close would the atoms be to have a high probability of fusing i.e 1 in 1,000. Yes, I think that is the m...
