Excerpt of an ignition run of the gallium generation SunCell®

Auto-shuttered video to avoid camera saturation. Excerpt of an ignition run of the gallium generation SunCell®. A powerful reactor-filling plasma ignites with low-voltage arcs (sparks). The reaction gas comprises an argon-hydrogen mixture at atmospheric pressure that provides atomic H, and gallium oxide serves as a source of oxygen to form HOH hydrino catalyst. The hydrogen is required for plasma formation. The SunCell® comprises a single electromagnetic pump injector that serves as a molten metal electrode paired with a static-level counter electrode. Auto-leveling and alignment are inherent in the design. Gallium’s melting point is near room temperature, and its boiling point (B.P.) is 2400 °C (higher than the B.P. of silver). Due to this extraordinary temperature difference in physical state changes, the heater to melt the gallium is a simple, very low power resistive heater, the reactor may operate at atmospheric pressure, and the heat transfer to a heat exchanger may be direct. The gallium generation SunCell® serves as a test bed for optimizing hydrino reaction chemistry and conditions as it is being developed for commercial heating applications.
