Andrea Rossi And Sergio Focardi
An amazing new experiment using Sergio Focardi And Andrea Rossi's energy catalyzer has been performed producing a minimum of 15Kw over 18 hours. A minimum of 15 kW was produced continually for 18 hours, coming to a total of 270 kWh or 972 MJ.
The experiment was conducted in Bologna, Italy on 10th February and was observed by Dr. Levi himself and other witnesses. This new experiment follows a successful private demonstration of the unit which was previously held on January 14th.
“Now that I have seen the device work for so many hours, in my view all chemical energy sources are excluded,” - Giuseppe Levi.
Bologna University physicist and researcher Dr Giuseppe Levi was present to monitor the experiment.
“It was pretty impressive in some respects. First, the repeatability. This is the third time I’ve seen the device, and again it produces energy.”
“The second thing is that this time we loaded the unit with hydrogen at the beginning, and then the bottle was closed. It then worked for 18 hours with the bottle closed. Quite impressive.”
“I weighed container before and after charging, and including the gas we let out to empty the tube of air, the consumption of hydrogen was 0.4 grams. That’s nothing!”
“Minimum power was 15 kilowatts, and that’s a conservative value. I calculated it several times. At night we did a measurement and the device then worked very stable and produced 20 kilowatts.”
“Now that I have seen the device work for so many hours, in my view all chemical energy sources are excluded,” said Giuseppe Levi.
In this particular experiment they opted to heat the water instead of boiling it to avoid any errors. The initial water temperature was 7 degrees Celsius and for some time the oulet temperature was measured at 40 degrees Celsius.
According to Levi, the input electrical power to 'ignite' the device was about 1250 watts for five to ten minutes. It was then reduced to about 80 watts, equivalent to the power consumption of the control unit.
“This time I opened the control unit (and examined the interior), as someone said that it could contain a hidden battery. And I can swear in court that the box was empty, except for the control electronics – five very simple PLCs – and it weighed about seven kilograms,”
“I have also seen inside the unit itself – most of the volume is isolation, and most of the weight of about 30 kg is due to lead.”
“If I then, using the most accurate methods possible, really see changes in the nuclei, then we have new physics. There is nothing you can say about it,” he said.
Speaking to Swedish Tech Website nyteknik.se Levi said:
“If I were an old professor with his career already done, then I would not have anything to risk. But any attempt at fraud on my part would be a terrible personal goal. What could I hope for? To have a title for ten days, and then be thrown from my own department. Because (the matter of) fraud comes up sooner or later. There is no hope for it. So if I ... well, I would be really stupid. Honestly, I would be really stupid!” said Levi.
