    I did a little looking around at eCat and found some conception pics
    of what an eCat would look like for home application. I also found a
    COOP of 6 listed.

    It appears that although the eCat is rated in kW, that this is kW of
    heat.

    Anyone have any idea how eCat intends to use the heat generated?
    Apparently this can be up to the melting point of nickel. But what
    working fluid?

    Ahhh. And what fabulous space heaters they are. And domestic hot water.

    I'm intrigued by the COP of 6. That implies to me that there is some
    energy that must be expended to keep it running. I don't think this is
    the heater, it seems to me that there must be some pump that pulses the
    hydrogen to create very high pressures. Otherwise this would be
    completely self sustaining and have a COP closer to infinity.

    I can see this as a sandwich of ultrasonic transducers creating high
    pressure waves in the hydrogen gas. In fact there are lots of ways to
    have local high pressure points in acoustic devices.

    All this is mere conjecture.
    That, is a new light on the subject!
    I would think the fail safe for coolant loss is when the machine melts
    into a puddle!
