Steam resonator

(1/5) > >>

The steam resonator is something I've thought about from time to time. The theory seems pretty simple. With a high enough potential we should be able to ionize h20 and with that potential was oscillating the subatomic particles would collide creating heat. I believe this process is similar to a microwave but could be much more efficient. The biggest problem I see is creating a large enough potential across a water capacitor with natural water. Please post your thoughts on that. I have my own but I will move on for now. So, Stan leaves us with the blueprints. Impedance blocks current without heat as a lose. It would be hard to build something that worked like this but maybe if we had an air gap or some other dialectic. If any of you have and 8xa set up, please try a test without the blocking diode. I believe Stan had the theory but his application my have been oscillating current.

I recently was able to get my hands on a small tesla coil which seems perfect for the job!

Give me your thoughts?!

For me this steam resonator was kind of the same of the WFC however the gas is generated and recombined continually, thereto generating heat by allowing the reformation of water molecule and summing to back and forth, flip.. movement of the ions.... collisions...

sebs, I agree, my only problem is the amount of potential that would need to be applied to accomplish this task. Using ohms law and the resistance of pure water, it looks like we would hardly even make a dent with 100k volts. This leads me to believe that  that if any of stans systems worked they had something different going on than what we can calculate. (Unless he was using current)

Well, I finally put some of my theories to the test. The potential I thought was necessary would only come in to play with perfect theoretical water. If we are dealing with natural water, we have plenty of ionic compounds dissolved in it. So, with the addition of ionic compounds naturally found in water, oh- and oh3+ ions are not hard to come by. If we move these ions back an forth we will create heat. With this understanding I simply thought that with a high voltage high frequency ac supply I could boil water. Stans circuit was a little different but i believe its based on the same concepts.

Today I placed a cell inline with the output of my new tesla coil. Nothing Happened! I had over 100kv at over 200khz applied( I think)
For the last few months I have had a problem with every test I have ever done with Stan's theorys. I believe the cell is acting as a resistors and not a capacitor in any significant way. because of this, the cell doesn't have a positive and a negative side but is either completely positive or negative at any instant in time. With this idea, I think we are just moving a very small amount of current through the cell without effecting the entire dielectric. That being said, I have measured from 300 to 1000 volts with different vic's. I believe what I saw was voltage from the inductors. The only indication I have ever had of the cell acting as a capacitor is a resonance effect between the L1 inductor and the cell and an experiment where I pumped water through the cell which caused the voltage I measured to be significantly lower than when the pump was off.

Sorry for jumping around I hope I was clear. I just wanted to post my experience and see if anyone had any thoughts. I will start a new topic on water capacitors

The Steam Resonator is simply based on AC power. I've tested this many times by inputting up to 120V mains power @ less than 1A into my cell. The water will become super heated within mins. Stan achieved these same results by alternating pulsed DC. I've built a simple circuit that would do just this to super heat the water and it works!
