WHAT WE WANTED WAS TO RUN A STEAM ENGINE USING A BOILER HEATED BY THE NEW E-CAT TECHNOLOGY OF MR. ROSSI. Unfortunately his ECAT heater only produced steam at 28 psi. To run a steam engine we need 150 psi or greater. The problem seems to be with the boiler and the way we can heat it, using E-cat heating technology. Such redesign of how to heat a boiler remains yet to be solved, producing about 200 psi. In Belize, we could use, either used BUTANE TANKS, or SCUBA TANKS. Scuba tanks hold up to 3000 psi of air. A blow out valve, with a replacable aluminum disc is used to release air, when pressure increases too high in scuba tanks. I have used these myself and when sitting in the hot tropical sun, on an open boat, waiting for tourists to arrive, it is not unusual to have air tanks blow their safety valves when they get too hot from the sun heat. We don´t have yet a foundry in Belize, to cast iron, or make tanks, valves and V belt wheels. Nobody knows how to do it here, at the BLACKSMITH shop level. Importing parts is a difficult operation, takes a lot of time and you get charged a lot of duties, taxes and transportation costs, both internally and from externally, on which you have to pay taxes.
