I like this one (from the faq.ecat.com):|
Q: What would happen if I had a power failure in my home such that the ecat controls AND the (cooling-) water pump stops?
Uh, the melting point of nickel is around 1450°C or 2650°F. Can you say "Fire Hazard"? It also raises the question why this thing is limited to running under 200°C and 28psi?
...and he states that it takes 2.7 to 2.9kwh of juice to get up and running.
For the first hour. After that the units are supposed to be self-sustaining. Which makes me ask why he's only promising a COP of 6. If a 10 kW device is run continuously and is self-sustaining after the first hour, the COP should be MUCH higher.
