Recently, on his blog Journal of Nuclear Physics, Andrea Rossi recently referred his readers to a posting by Prof. Santar Hajra titled “Some Experiments That Shook the World”. This prompted a posting by a contributor who calls himself Adrian Monk, referring Rossi to information on a Noble Gas Plasma Engine.
The writeup referred to is on Seri-Worldwide, and has some very fascinating information about an alternative engine that has no intake or exhaust. This two cylinder engine is supposed to be displayed and demonstrated on December 11 at the Power-Gen Conference in Orlando, Florida. There will be several different displays there.
Inteligentry will have a display at the conference. They will demonstrate their Plasmic Transition Process™ engine. PlasmERG will also have a demonstration. It appears from the two websites that these may actually be the same company – the sites are set up exactly the same way, and both tout the Plasmic Transition Process™. While this is not a proven technology, it is indeed interesting that all kinds of engines are appearing claiming to run on little to no fuel, with little to no emissions.
The plasma engine is said to have no exhaust, so that it can run indoors. The two cylinder engine to be demonstrated is projected to run for 1.5 years, continuously, on just the first charge of noble gas. The Seri site says that one of these engines has been running for that period of time in Michigan, already. At the conference, they also hope to have a 4 cylinder engine to display, and there are supposed to be plans for a 6 cylinder in August of next year.
Andrea Rossi himself has said that there will be many imitators and copycats, although these don’t appear to be copies of any kind of LENR technology. In fact, if these engines are legitimate, it could be that they could be integrated with Hot Cats and E-Cats in order to create an even more powerful unit.
In fact, fusor devices may be useful in each of the units, considering the need to keep the heat more evenly distributed through the power generation. Keeping the plasma field off of the sides of the reactors is important for maintaining even heating. It will be interesting to see if there is truly any authentic science involved with these engines.
