We've thought a lot about safety in
research. Perhaps you should, too.
of course, is the primary consideration. If research weren't pushing the boundaries
- .ere r cer; - ere cthen there would be no need for experimentation. In developing this new phenomenon for cecee c c ce: c -; cereoperating temperature must increase well above the boiling point of water. This forces closcç c : press
c Arc edangers. Hazards arise from several sources with varying degrees of severity.
Water/steam heated in a closed vessel can reach pressures ofnearly 250 atmospheres. Due to the positive temperaturecoefficient of reaction rate, at least in the palladium-deuteriumsystem, thermal runaway reactions are possible, with resultingabrupt temperature and pressure excursions. This points to therequirement for exceptionally strong walls and high peak coolingcapacity to control cathode temperature.
These reactions are now known to be nuclear, in some form.There are many confirmations of low levels of neutrons, tritiumand gamma rays. Increasing amounts of these dangerous productswill likely be generated as experiments are scaled up. Adequateshielding and appropriate handling precautions are necessary.
Failure of the catalyst to recombine the electrolytically generated;gases could produce unlimited pressures, though with a much «slower rise-time than in the case of steam. This requires controlsystem action, backed up by high pressure relief valving.
