January 10, 2013 - TEST #10 : Here is an interesting test of electrolysis with the GEGENE v1.1 and with my CFR reactor. In this test the high voltage pulsed signal, available at the output of the flat bililar Tesla coil, is used to power the CFR basic (Cold Fusion Reactor) that I have tested in november 2005 during experiments about High Temperature Plasma electrolysis (Mizuno type). Today, the purpose of this preliminary experiment is to check if it is possible, with the use of the pulsed and modulated signal at the GEGENE output, to generate a great amount of di-hydrogen gaz (or HHO gaz) with a better efficiency than a common Faraday electrolysis with DC current and with a lower working temperature than the high temperature plasma electrolysis that I have tested in 2005... This should allow me to solve the problems of aging and wear of the tungsten cathode that I had encountered during the testing. This problem was produced by the very high temperatures around the cathod of the CFR.
Below a photo of the tested setup.
The CFR reactor is connected to the flat bifilar Testla coil of the GEGENE via a very high speed diode used for the rectifying but used without a filtering capacitor. This allows to get a pulsed DC signal at high frequency.
The CFR reactor is filled with 800 mL of a 0.5 M solution of K2CO3 (Potassium carbonate). A pure tungsten cathod (3 mm diameter) is used and the anod is a stainless steel grid. The floating balls are used to contain the heat of the reactor and to avoid the "primage" phenomenon.
An immersed thermal probe (K type) is connected to a digital thermometer (at the top of the photo below) to control the temperature of the liquid and the ignition point of the plasma in the CFR reactor.
Below the photo of the CFR reactor in action...
The plasma is clearly visible (purple glow) around the tungsten cathod and it lights completly the reactor.
SUMMARY OF THIS PRELIMINARY EXPERIMENT :
The High Frequency pulsed signal at the GEGENE output allows to ignite the plasma in the CFR reactor.
There is a great amount of di-hydrogen gaz produced here with the pulsed setup and the gaz micro bubbles are filling very quickly the reactor, hidding the tungsten cathod. I have not yet measured the amount of gaz produced and no effiency measurements have been done yet, this was only a simple proof of concept experiment.
The experimental protocole used in this experiment and all technical details and datas about the CFR reactor are widely published HERE.
This simple experiment has allowed me to validate a future design about a high efficiency electrolyser...
