Andrea Rossi often interacts with loyal readers of the Journal of Nuclear Physics. Dr. Joseph Fine frequently contributes to the comments section of the blog, providing information for Rossi’s consideration and asking E-Cat related questions that are answerable, despite the confidentiality required by the Italian inventor’s work.
Just yesterday, Fine asked about the adjustment of temperatures on the E-Cat. He asked if the newer models of E-Cats, aka “Tigers”, could be adjusted to operate between the temperatures of 250 to 1000 degrees C, and Rossi’s response is yes. He also revealed that the E-Cat is not limited to only one or two settings for hits heat.
In addition, the Hot Cat can apparently be operated at less than 600 degrees C. This is crucial, because some turbines that may be used to convert the heat generated by the Hot Cat operate best at temperatures between 550 and 600 degrees.
Rossi has also been able to establish a control setting so that the E-Cat’s operating temperature can be set to the desired level. This is in contrast to redesigning the core for each required temperature. This ease of operation is a big plus. In addition, you can change the heat being generated while the unit is running. So, if you want more power or heat, you just “turn it up”. If you want less heat or power, you “turn it down”. This is very much like a throttle or thermostat that governs the amount of operation according to needs.
This is very exciting news. How quickly we have gone from wondering if the E-Cat can self-sustain a reaction to wondering if the amount of reaction could be controlled!
