wait, no the 10K resistor is for calibration only. This is how I'm checking on how much power is needed to raise the chamber a particular temperature. and this data i will use to compare the "reaction" to the calibration.

so in my testing i will be taking out the resistor and replacing it with the test powder. in my case a Zeolite loaded with Pd.

this make sense?

Yes, makes total sense.
It will be interesting to see if anomalous heat occurs with zero electrical input I am loving that your covering experimental ground that helps answer real questions about the LENR/Cold Fusion phenomenon.
Nano Palladium, very nice :) Huge surface area, should help I would imagine.
Very awesome stuff.
(Now in regards to my research)
I had to do a total re-design of my apparatus. I am waiting on the final components, which will all be here in the very near future.
The main thing I am having setbacks with is mentally muscling through creating a custom  program that interfaces with my arduino and other hardware for the calorimetry... I am making progress on the daily and consider this one of my favorite/most interesting projects.
I am trying a Nickel/Hydrogen route (but plan on making my cathode kind of changeable, I have Palladium, I hope to run many experiments over time)
 I will explain in much deeper detail when I receive the rest of my components in the mail.
I cannot wait to share my progress.
Thanks for creating this forum.

In regards to the latching valves. A normally closed valve is what you need. The valve will be drawing current and generating heat only when you are flowing gas to charge the chamber. The heat generated by the solenoid won't be an issue. As I understand it you have the valves outside the test chamber. Also I didn't see any temperature controls on the gases so it appears to me that after charging the chambers and shutting off the flow you will have to wait for the temperatures to stabilize any way.

For a garage experimenter this sure is looking like a most professional level enterprise.

I am learning a lot from your efforts. Thank you.

thanks for all the feed back!

good stuff guys!


I'm planing on making a new inner chamber, This new inner chamber will replace the small inner chamber / styrofoam box.
I will be building something on the order of vacuum chamber. (double wall vacuum insulated)
I'm still having a lot of influences from the outer room temp. its not direct either its very " lagged" so its hard to compensate for.

I have 2 thoughts.

Both will be built out of staleness steal. ( unless there is something better)

A. a double walled chamber That i can pull a vacuum on. so this will be a chamber that will have a lid that will also need to be double walled. everything will be inside this inner box.

B . A Single walled chamber that will also have a lid, The entire box will be under vacuum. contents will also be under vacuum. including wires and pluming / chambers.



1. wire feed through will be easy.  just need a small pipe between the walls.. some way to seal it.
2. possibly better insulation as it needs to go through 2 walls.

1. There will be a lot of isolation between the each chamber so the only transfer of heat will be the via the pipe connections. ( less cross talk.)
2. easy to build.
3. more workable space inside the already tight space.
4. no need for "extra" insulation around the chambers.


1. I will still have a lot of "cross talk" as each chamber will be in an air environment that is not vacuum.
2. This will be harder to build with a double seal as a "lid" could be complicated.
3. There will need to be some way to "hold" the inner and outer box's (double walled)   This could transfer heat. use some kind of ceramics or something. whatever it is needs to be able to be under a vacuum.

1. Every wire and pipe connection will be under a vacuum, that will require the correct wire / things as you cant just chuck anything under a vacuum...
2. connections are very expensive.

OK, i plan on making bigger chambers also. so the more room the better...


let me know your thoughts.
