    I don't understand the temperatures.It appears that the outside of the
    device is at 800C



    Cures has stated that at the time of the photo, the average external
    temperature of the module was E-Cat was 801 degrees Celsius, with a peak
    local temperature of 873C in one spot. This was recorded by the infrared
    camera. The temperature of the inner surface was measured (with the
    handheld laser themometer) to be from 1,100C to 1,200C, increasing in
    temperature towards the center of the module.


    However, that should be bright red:

    It doesn't look right to me,but I simply don't know.

    In addition, they calculate heat output at 13.39kW

    That is 45.6K BTU

    That is a lot of heat for the small office that this appears to be run
    out of. Nearly 4 tons of AC for one room.

    The heat output figures just don't make sense to me.


    I also roughly calculated the surface area required to yield 45K BTU at 800C

    and it is ~ 1.75 SF

    The surface area of the pipe looks closer to a sixth of that.

    I happen to think LENR is doable, but this doesn't seem right. The heat
    output figures seem doubtful. It seems to me closer to the heat input.

    This shows how to judge high temperature from the color of the glow:

    Room lighting affects your color perception.

    PESN reports whet is there, and is the first to castigate when a hoax or
    scam is involved.
