Brillouin Energy Press Release on 3rd-Party-Involved Test
|December 1, 2015||Posted by Jack Cole under Brillouin Energy - Robert Godes, SRI, Validation Reports|
Brillouin Energy has a new press release posted on their website announcing the availability of a 3rd party report on a test of their “Hydrogen Hot Tube™ (HHT™) Boiler System reactor core modules.” The 35-page report is described as being limited in availability. Specifically, the report “is available upon request to qualified interested parties under a customary non-disclosure agreement.” It looks like they plan to carefully control the dissemination of this report.
The study was reportedly directed by Michael Halem, who is listed as a VP/Senior Partner with the group LENR Invest.
Michael has 29 years of experience in financial markets as a manager for Salomon Brothers, Nomura Securities, Rocket Partners and Millennium Partners. Previously, Mr. Halem worked at Cape Canaveral where he designed the Space Shuttle Radar Intercept Control Console and the Range Safety Real-Time Telemetry Display System. Mr. Halem earned his BA in Physics from Harvard and his MBA in Finance and Management from Columbia. …
The experiment itself appears to have been conducted by staff at SRI and Brillouin Energy staff. In a sense, this can be considered to be less independent than the TPR’s 1 & 2 on Rossi’s E-Cat technology. We have no reason to believe that these staff members would intentionally try to fool the test. We also have no numbers about the amount of excess heat energy or COP achieved during the experiment. It was noted that,
In all cases, the results were consistent: the data demonstrate with very high confidence that the Brillouin Energy HHT™ prototype repeatedly produced lab-scale excess heat from LENR. “I was given full access to the experiments,” said Mr. Halem. “I was able to confirm, with a high degree of confidence, excess energy output above chemical and likely due to a nuclear reaction.”
The use of the phrase “lab-scale excess heat,” would tend to suggest that they did not see the level of heat needed for an industrial system. However, scalability is also asserted,
The Technical Validation Report affirms that Brillouin Energy’s HHT™ technology “is scalable by assembling multiple HHT™ tubes” in a reactor system.
It is certainly an interesting development, and makes one wonder whether this is the source of Michael McKubre’s statement that the system has demonstrated a COP of 4.
