Defkalion Press Release And Hyperion Tech Data Sheet

Today Defkalion Green Technologies published 2 new important documents. The first is a full preliminary technical data sheet for it's Hyperion (Kw Series) products. The second was a press release mapping out their plans for the introduction of their Hyperion product.


Information Release Highlights
  • Hyperion Technical Specifications Data Sheet Released
  • New Photos Of Fully Assembled Hyperion Product
  • Defkalion will allow third-party independent testing
  • 850 companies from 60 countries interested in licensing
  • Research And Development Joint Ventures


Toady's Press Release


Today, and through our company website, Praxen - Defkalion Green Technologies Global has disclosed its current work on Nickel and Hydrogen exothermic reaction using Chemically Assisted Low Energy Nuclear Reactions.

The provided Technical Specifications Sheet is a first preparation of our pre-industrial Hyperion product. This data has been tested with progress made towards the design of a final product ready for market entry in 2012.

Hyperion products will be introduced into the global market with applications for buildings, agriculture and industrial energy needs.


Beyond the completion of the final product with all necessary certificates, our company has three key objectives for 2012:


1. Agreements with companies for exclusive licenses according to country / territory

We have received interest in our license agreements from 850 companies from 60 countries. They have already received an invitation for testing our products on the basis of a license for their country. We expect to sign contracts in 2012 and have already started talks.


2. Third party independent tests for scientific purposes and advancement of theory

Praxen - Defkalion Green Technologies is a strong supporter of LENR technologies globally. Greece can become the global centre for R&D on LENR technologies. We have already received numerous requests from leading scientific authorities, academic institutions and national laboratories from key countries to conduct tests on our products. Our policy is to accept their requests, under agreed protocol, and to allow publication of their findings. The process of agreeing to dates for such tests depends on the availability of our staff and labs, keeping in mind that we run a business, not a technology show room.


3. R&D-based joint venture partnerships with companies in niche market applications

There are many applications that stand alone Hyperion products cannot service. In these cases, we will enter into joint venture agreements with companies that have specialized know-how and technologies in their field, but who will be able to utilize and capitalize on our technology to create entirely new products with ours. Examples of such partnerships have come from interested companies in the fields of marine propulsion, water desalination, off-shore drilling, trains, telecom towers, heavy vehicles, and micro energy sources. These agreements will be

Spec Sheet: About The Reaction

"Defkalion's scientific R&D team have successfully managed to trigger and monitor Chemically Assisted Low Energy Nuclear Reactions caused by Nickel and Hydrogen nuclei. Following extensive experimentation on the preparation, cleaning and degassing of Nickel clusters and atomic Hydrogen systems, valuable knowledge has been gained.  The data was obtained from conventional, non-specifically designed for LENR instrumentation, such as mass-spectrometer, gas-chromatographer, Wilson camera, SEM spectra and others".

"Such measurements of phenomena gave us strong evidence on the activation mechanisma of Nickel that allow the nuclear capture of Hydrogen (the "breaking" of the Coulomb barrier), as well as the thermalization mechanism in a dynamic system of multi-stage set of reactions. Due to the elapsed time between the phenomena and their measurements using the above mentioned instrumentation, an incomplete proof of theories still exists, However, the obtained data provide us with a solid basis to control the triggering and termination conditions of the Ni-H reactions within Hyperion reactors, as well as the necessary conditions for stable performance."

"As a result , the above mentioned efforts led to the design of safe and stable Hyperion pre-industrial product, following the specifications described in this docment."

"Defkalion GT is an industrial company and not an academic or research institute with a role to state, prove and reject theories; as such, we recognize that products do not need to be based on theories. However, we do recognize the importance of scienfific knowledge for further scientific research and product development. For this reason, we have decided to invest on a new series of on-line real-time mass spectrometers, designed specifically for LENR and Hyperions, that we are developing and testing in Greece. It is our intention to publish all relative measurements in scientific journals and events, when our tests are finally concluded."


Forum Questions and Answers

Defkalion opened a new Discussion Thread in their forum.  Here are some of the first questions and answers:

Q: How quickly can the system come up to power? Also, how fast can it be turned down to idle mode?
A: Please indicate an example of configuration (single or multi-reactor, kW and maximum allowed temperature). We will consult our R&D to check tables and we will provide you with a precise answer the soonest. In general, the mean time to put a Hyperion from 0 to 100% of its capacity is 6,5min.

Continuous Operation

Q: Could you clarify how long the Hyperion can produce excess heat continuously ? Thanks.

A: As you can see in specs, for at least 6 months non-stop (for any reason).
Thank you


Thermostat

Q: Dave wrote:
Will it be controllable by some form of thermostat so that it can be used to heat an environment?I read the specifications but do not recall seeing answers to these questions.

A: In a secondary circuit sending heat to an environment, any typical thermostat can adjust the energy demand to Hyperion. Hyperion PLCs are monitoring on line the Delta on calorimetry in the prime circuit, auto-adjusting the production (opening/closing the reactor(s) accordingly)

Self Sustain

Q: Meta wrote:
I note that Rossi has aparently demonstrated his ecats in Self sustain mode for brief periods of time, after the kernals have been preheated to operating temperature. In your nicely crafted report there are various modes of operation mentioned but a self sustain mode seems to be absent. Is self sustain possible under the currently developed control system? Or would you prefer to avoid the term self sustain for the time being due to its radical connotations..

A: Hyperion is a system, not just a bare reactor. And the system uses pumps and electronics that need electric power in normal operations. So, there is not really a sustain mode in such systems.

PS Please notice also that we indicated COP for single or mult-reactor systems and not for bare reactors.

Price of Hyperions

Q: Can you give us an idea about hyperion's price list? (Products and annual services)
thanks

A: Indications on prices for the Greek market you can find in several publishes in Greek newspapers in Press Section of our site. In case you can not read Greek, this indication is 5.500euro per multi-reactor system (installed) and some hundreds of euros per year for recharge/support/service. Official price lists for local and international markets will be announced later.
Thank you

Note: All multi-reactor systems will have the same selling price, regardless if they are of let us say 20 or 35 or 45 kW nominal power. In all cases, 9 reactors are in the kernel. Up to 4, 7 or 9 respectively in this examble, are allowed to operate concurrently by their setup. So the recharge period varies, as far as all 9 reactors may service the system following a balancing algorithm. So, recharging period is not always 6 months. It can be more as stated in specs.

Nickel Consumption

Q: This question, by a consumer point of view might probably be irrelevant since each six months (in single reactor units) the nickel charge and the hydrogen bottle get replaced completely, but I was wondering on a scientific point of view what is the consumption of Hydrogen and Nickel in grams for, let's say, a 10 kW unit continuously running at 100% power for six months? (or better and more generically, using a more proper unit of measure, in g/MWh) Could you also state how much Hydrogen and Nickel would such unit start up with?

Perhaps for Nickel a more correct word than consumption would be transmutation (assuming this is what happens in the reactor core, as with Rossi's). If you agree with this, could you tell how much of it, in the example above, gets transmuted after six months of use?

A: The most serious reason for a 6-12 months recharge of Hydrogen and Ni is not their consumption (or if you like the transmutation of Ni) but pure engineering reasons. Hyperions are quite new, so we will need to run diagnostics test for the kernel's peripherals in situ at least every six months in the first period, according to our present analysis of different components or subsystems and the service protocols. Later on, these protocols may change as we expect.

So, for your consumer point of view, we have to assure you that your Hyperion is properly monitored and cared, as we have to. For your scientific point of view of your questions, please note that less than 15gr of Ni are loaded in each reactors chamber during its production - Thank you

Exclusive Rights

It is interesting to note that references to Andrea Rossi's have been removed from their website with Defkalion now claiming full rights:

"Praxen Defkalion Green Technologies (Global) Ltd., is based in Cyprus. It owns full rights to its own technologies and will sell exclusive rights globally for the production of its proprietary products (Hyperion)."

Power

There appear to be two different kinds of prototype reactors being offered. A single reactor "kernel" of 5kW and a multi reactor kernel made from 9 reactors and capable of 10-45kW

Defkalion Press Release 30th Nov, 2011
 

Defkalion Spokesman: "“I Know What He’s Got in the Reactor, I Know Everything."

According to this new NY Teknik article the University Of Siena ran a spectroscopy of Rossi's eCat at some point and consequently it revealed to them the contents of the reactor, presumably revealing the secret catalyst which enables the Nickel Hydrogen to fuse.


Excerpt of Ny Teknik’s conversation with Alexandros Xanthoulis (Defkalion Spokesman) August 5, 2011

 

"Let’s say I have the formula of Rossi, but I’m not saying it officially. My scientists found a way to make it. They need three months, but I’m not going to play game behind Rossi. I’m  not a cheater. We started together and if he has to be paid, he will. But his problem is scientifically solved by us.
Because we believe that his reactor cannot operate more than 24 hours.
When we requested 48 it was a problem. But my scientists found out the problems. I cannot reveal it right now. But the problem can be fixed by us. It’s very simple but they didn’t think about it. The same way more than a year ago when Rossi had never thought that his invention could create electricity. He had never thought about it until we told him."

"First of all, the first problem was with 48 hours, that’s for sure. And he had a huge fight with one of my scientists, Mr Hadjichristos, you’ve heard of him most probably, Yiannis, because we were insisting on 48 hours. But we know the problem; we didn’t tell him of course, we know the problem.
I know what he’s got in the reactor, I know everything. It was a spectroscopy (Greek: ‘fasmatoscopy’) made by the university of Siena. It was an equipment made by the University of Siena. It understands everything that’s inside the reactor. So we know the components."

Ny Teknik: Who did that?

"The University of Siena. They tried his reactor without him understanding what they did. They checked it and we know what’s in the reactor. So it’s a matter of two or three months that my scientists can reproduce that, but I’m not going to try it. I’m playing a fair game.

We solved the problem. The problems he’s got, we solved them. Because the problem is that he cannot spread the reaction all over the pipe, and all the heating is concentrated in the middle. So we found the solution."

Defkalion Announcement: May Include Testing / Certification by Independent Third Parties

Defkalion Green Technologies (DGT) will make a big announcement tomorrow (Wednesday) following many weeks of build up and anticipation.


Yesterday on their forum Defkalion posted:


"Dear all,
We will release the expected info pre-announced on November 14th 2011, on
Wednesday, November 30th 2011."
Thank you for your attention
Defkalion GT"

What to expect then?  Well, based on their own statements we can hazard a guess at:
Third party testing and certification of Hyperions underway, perhaps even positive results from a credible third party. More documentation including Final product specifications and probably some photos.
Initially, Defkalion had been working closely with Andrea Rossi on an ambitious commercial project to roll-out eCat fusors to the masses.  The plans included a factory working at full capacity producing 300,000 Hyperions (DGT Name For Their eCat Fusor), with plans for additional factories and research facilities in Greece.

That is until the relationship soured with Rossi citing financial issues as the cause of the breakdown in relations. Defkalion countered with accusations that Rossi did not "meet parameters such as the stable operation of the device for at least 48 hours".

Defkalion seem very confident launching their Hyperion technology, while Rossi has been adamant that Defkalion do not know the industrial secret in order to successfully manufacture and produce the reactor cores.  The industrial secret being the method of preparation and treatment of the powdered Nickel with an as yet undisclosed "secret" catalyst.

When you look at everything that has happened since January, Defkalion have sensibly bowed out of getting involved in name calling and the media circus that surrounds Rossi and have maintained quite a professional stance since they first came on the scene.

One of their first statements was very positive indeed and also seemed to imply that Rossi's was not the only technology they were working with when they said Defkalion has: "Enhanced technology and engineering on Rossi’s invention or similar inventions".

On October 10th they made the following statement:

The technological breakthrough of LENR (or CANR) is no longer speculation. It is a fact that will eventually change the world’s energy problems and its sociopolitical divides through cheap, clean and green energy. The world needs LENR as a new energy source. Although change will not happen over-night, LENR will help reduce CO2 emissions, lower the cost of energy, and provide longevity to our planet’s energy needs.

Defkalion sees its role with responsibility and asks the community at large to continue its support.

Defkalion has:
• Enhanced technology and engineering on Rossi’s invention or similar inventions
• Prepared business models for international expansion
• Established a strong network of global contacts
• Prepared legislative and certification procedures
• Ensured national, regional and international network in politics and business
• Prepared global financing

Defkalion has worked in close partnership with Andrea Rossi for a very long time to prepare a commercially viable and industrially applicable product using his invention. Defkalion invested a lot of money to evolve Rossi’s E-Cat lab prototype into its Hyperion product. Defkalion is now at the stage where its industrial prototype is ready for production.

More recently they produced this press release which features pictures of Hyperion prototypes and of the inside of their workshop.

Soon after they clarified some of the points made in the press release:

"We have to clarify that two of the pictures in our November 14th Press Release are from a low-end Hyperion single reactor pre-industrial version7 prototype. Several components on it (isolations, security components, anti-explosive protection, casing, functional I/O etc) have been deliberately omitted."

"Final products for mass production, that will be released following their prototypes certification, do have some minor differences in engineering/architecture and their assembly quality. A full specs sheet as well as product's basic design and their scheduled third party testing will be released as per our announcement of November 14th.
Thank you"

More recently an article with Defkalion's Alexander Xanthoulis in Greek publication Tovima shed more light on developments with Defkalion painting themselves as having a more stable and advanced product than Rossi. The article has been through Google translate, so as always some of the meaning is lost in translation.

“We not only continue our program and we are almost ready, with technology that precedes that of Rossi during a year. Specifically, within the next 15 days there will be announcements and initiated testing and certification by independent third parties. We will present the final product – not just a laboratory prototype – with all its subsystems to operate according to European safety standards. ”

“All the technology used in devices at the Hyperion KW and systems 1 to 5MW are our own design – different from those of Rossi” he replied. “As for the control, was already our own design and construction, and Mr. Rossi has signed acceptance certificate shows that it is ours. Even in the recent trial in October when he used some modules of our own design. However, the main and big difference in our device than that of Rossi is that our system is stable in performance, while that of Rossi or the last test failed to yield stable for more than five and a half hours. ”

So the rift between you was not due only to non-payment of first installment repayment, said Mr. Rossi?

“Not sure. We had finished the 15 million dollars of first dose, but Mr. Rossi did not sign the protocol of receipt, asking him to meet parameters such as the stable operation of the device for at least 48 hours. This was the real cause of the  interruption of cooperation, but not celebrated in the media because they want to continue a deleterious confrontation. Us us interested in real progress, and this success. The technology will present a few days the world will be entirely Greek and appreciate its contribution to the overthrow of what exists in the energy market. “

One rather positive outcome in all this is for neutrals is that despite the cavernous differences of opinion between all of the parties, Defkalion, Rossi and even Piantelli and Krivit - they all agree that the LENR phenomena is real.  This fact alone should give sleepless nights to even the most determined pseudosceptics.

It is possible that this announcement by Defkalion will be relatively tame, but  I don't expect that to be the case. There is a small, but nevertheless potential possibility that If Defkalion have progressed far enough to announce positive independent test results from a well-respected third party then this whole thing could go supernova overnight. Whether tomorrow is that day or many weeks away I have a strong feeling we ain't seen nothin yet.

A smattering of mainstream media exposure so far is nothing compared to the what is coming down the line.

“All the technology used in devices at the Hyperion KW and systems 1 to 5MW are our own design – different from those of Rossi” he replied. “As for the control, was already our own design and construction, and Mr. Rossi has signed acceptance certificate shows that it is ours. Even in the recent trial in October when he used some modules of our own design. However, the main and big difference in our device than that of Rossi is that our system is stable in performance, while that of Rossi or the last test failed to yield stable for more than five and a half hours. ”

So the rift between you was not due only to non-payment of first installment repayment, said Mr. Rossi?

“Not sure. We had finished the 15 million dollars of first dose, but Mr. Rossi did not sign the protocol of receipt, asking him to meet parameters such as the stable operation of the device for at least 48 hours. This was the real cause of the  interruption of cooperation, but not celebrated in the media because they want to continue a deleterious confrontation. Us us interested in real progress, and this success. The technology will present a few days the world will be entirely Greek and appreciate its contribution to the overthrow of what exists in the energy market. “

One rather positive outcome in all this is for neutrals is that despite the cavernous differences of opinion between all of the parties, Defkalion, Rossi and even Piantelli and Krivit - they all agree that the LENR phenomena is real.  This fact alone should give sleepless nights to even the most determined pseudosceptics.

It is possible that this announcement by Defkalion will be relatively tame, but  I don't expect that to be the case. There is a small, but nevertheless potential possibility that If Defkalion have progressed far enough to announce positive independent test results from a well-respected third party then this whole thing could go supernova overnight. Whether tomorrow is that day or many weeks away I have a strong feeling we ain't seen nothin yet.

A smattering of mainstream media exposure so far is nothing compared to the what is coming down the line.

Rossi: New NE USA eCat Customer Will Be Announced Publicly

The latest 1MW eCat Customer Is Happy To Go Public According To Cold Fusion Supremo Andrea Rossi

In a very promising announcement on Rossi's blog today we have something very positive to look forward to - the public disclosure of a North Eastern USA based company who have purchased one of Rossi's 1MW ecat plants.

  • Herb Gillis

    How long do you think it will be before there is a 1MW customer that is willing to talk about their experiences with the product and act as a reference? Having another customer out there who is willing to act as a reference could provide tremendous leverage. This would be far more valuable than any public test. It would silence the skeptics forever.


Dear Herb Gills:

Today we sold in the USA a 1 MW plant which will go to a normal Customer. This installation will be visitable by the qualified public. 


We wait to have completed the contractual procedure through the attorneys, then we will give communication. It will be in the North East of the USA, where I have been in these days.


Warm Regards

Previously we had heard that Rossi's trip to Massachusetts had not been fruitful, but it looks like this new customer was picked up there. So which large companies in NE USA would be interested in buying a 1MW fusion reactor? You decide.
