Tear-down and Testing of Orbo O-Cube Cells (Greg Daigle)

The following post has been submitted by Greg Daigle
The last threads from Frank about Steorn’s Orbo “OCube” reported in this forum had mixed results. In E-Cat World you can reference these postings:
In summary, the O-Cube appeared not to perform as claimed and the electronic circuitry was suspected as the cause.
Since then (February/March 2017), Steorn closed shop, liquidated its assets, and founder Shaun McCarthy and some of his former emploO-Cube Report v2
yees have gone on to new ventures.
In early October 2016 Frank sent the OCube he had received from Steorn to me (I am a former member of the Steorn Knowledge Data Base) and I began a teardown of the components.  I acquired a digital oscilloscope and other software to do some analysis of the individual blue cells.  The blue cells were the battery-like components, covered in mastic and purportedly containing rolls of Shaun’s “magic film” capable of recharging themselves.  Testing was as time allowed.
This report highlights that testing of the blue cells and the results.  From these tests the following conclusions were reached regarding individual blue cells:
  1. They do not harvest energy from the environment
  2. They do recharge themselves as claimed by Steorn
I remain open to doing additional tests as time allows.  Looking forward to critiques and ideas to test.

MFMP Begins Testing of ECCO Fuel

Bob Greenyer has been posting on the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project’s Steemit site about their progress in testing of fuel that has been sent to them from Indian researcher Suhas Ralkar, the inventor of the ECCO reactor, which he claims to be a working LENR device.

The MFMP are planning to visit Suhas in India, but before taking that trip, they have been sent fuel which they have begun testing. Bob posted this today:

For those that are unfamiliar with Suhas Ralkar’s process for creating Nickel foil – please check out our previous article here. Nickel Sulphate is mixed with de-ionised water, the combination of which is used to electro-deposit Nickel foil onto 304 Stainless Steel by way 300khz of 200V DC ultrasonic ‘hydrogen plasma’ and in sympathy vibrations.

According to a previous MFMP post, Suhas’s fuel starts out with this:

There are two types of fuel Suhas produced and ran, both of which contain 60% Titanium + 5% Carbon black + 5% Potassium Carbonate + 10% Lithium Hydroxide

In addition, during processing:

“1x” fuel has 10% Nickel + 10 % Molybdenum
“final” fuel has 20% Nickel

In their most recent post, the MFMP now states that testing suggests that the used fuel has been shown to include gold, silver, palladium, holmium and tantalum, which was not in the original fuel.

Me356 Gives Feedback to MFMP

Following the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project’s inconclusive testing with me356’s AURA reactor last month, many people have wondered what the status is with that situation, and whether there will be any follow up. A new post on the MFMP’s steemit account today gives provides some information on this subject. From the quotes from me356 it […]

Portugal Fires Prove World must Deal with Global Warming

A tragedy in Portugal demonstrates why the world needs to invest heavily in new energy solutions such as low energy nuclear reaction (LENR). Global warming might have led to the deaths of more than 60 innocent people. Around 30 people were burned to death in their cars trying to escape what was described as a [...]

EmDrive — A Challenge to Scientific Orthodoxy (Roger Shawer)

A reader forwarded to me a presentation by Roger Shawyer, the British inventor of the EmDrive, who reports he has been given permission by the UK Department of Defense to put this in the public domain. Mr Shawyer would like to have this presentation circulated as widely as possible. http://www.e-catworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Shrivenham-presentation-V.3.pdf
