A report has been released detailing a third party investigation into the anomalous heat produced from reactions inside the E-Cat HT (High Temperature) machine.
High resolution thermal imaging cameras were used to record the heat of the reaction tube of the E-Cat, with the data recorded on a second by second basis; and the electrical power input was measured using a large bandwidth three-phase power analyzer.
Data was collected from two separate experiments, one using the E-Cat HT, and the other using the E-Cat HT2, a technologically improved version of the E-Cat HT.
Both tests used the exact same methodology, and both produced excess heat from an unknown reaction within the tube, and in quantities above anything produced by conventional sources.

The website ECAT stated that, the first test, in December, lasted for 116 hours before being shut down , producing 160 kWh of energy and consuming just 35 kWh; producing an energy density of 7 • 103 W/kg and a thermal energy density of about 6.8 • 105 Wh/kg.
The second test, in March, lasted 96 hours and produced around 62kWh of energy, whilst consuming 33kWh. This gave the machine a power density of roughly 5.3 • 105W/kg, and a thermal energy density of 6.1 • 107Wh/kg.
Even taking the most conservative energy production figures recorded, the reaction still functioned at a higher magnitude than any other conventional sources.
The next experiment will begin this summer and will last for around six months as a long term test for the E-Cat HT2.
