Defkalion Green Technologies Global Limited has announced that it will become the first company to allow third party testing of a low energy nuclear reaction heating device. The company has announced that it will schedule a series of third party tests of its technology at its facility in Xanti, Greece within the next few months.
This makes Defkalion the first company to offer to let third party observers test its technology. Unfortunately it has not revealed the parameters of the tests or said exactly when they would take place. One wonders if they will let the observers open the LENR units and actually examine them and their contents or not.
This could be a validation of Defkalion, Andrea Rossi and LENR in general. Defkalion had a working agreement with Andrea Rossi in 2011 but Rossi broke it off and has made allegations that Defkalion stole his technology. Defaklion has been claiming that has a working LENR heating system since last summer. Yet has shown no evidence of this or even demonstrated its technology publicly like Rossi has.
The third parties will evaluate the company’s core technology which is described as a multistage LENR reaction between Nickel and Hydrogen. This technology will form the basis of the company’s Hyperion reactor which would be a home and business heating system. Defkalion has said this would be sold to the public within the year. The announcement states that the Hyperion itself would not be tested only the process it is based on.
The independent tests would be performed on bare Hyperion reactors. The company has asked what it calls reputable scientific and business organizations which it does do not identify to perform the tests and said some of them have scheduled.
Here’s what they would test:
• Measurement of excess heat produced by reactions within Hyperion reactors
• Measurement of “bare” Hyperion Reactor COP (i.e. total energy consumed versus energy produced)
• Measurement of radioactivity during testing
• Measurement of reactor’s stability using its control mechanisms
In announcements Defkalion has said that its units produce 20 kilowatts of heat for every kilowatt of electricity used and can heat water to a temperature of 650 degrees Celsius or 1148 Fahrenheit. This sounds like it would be hot enough to produce steam to run a steam engine so it is an exciting development.
Hopefully successful tests at Defkalion will convince some skeptics and pressure other LENR entrepreneurs like Andrea Rossi and Brilliouin to make their devices available for public testing. We need to learn the facts about this technology and kill off some of the wild rumors.
