The SKYBOLTTM reactor's primary products will be
electricity and helium gas. Secondary products of lithium and
beryllium, both light metals, will be plated safely on a removable
cathode inside the reactor. The unique design of this reactor
makes impossible the many dangers associated with other forms
of nuclear energy such as: melt down, radioactive leakage, radiation,
thermal pollution, explosion, and dangerous waste products that
can be environmentally harmful.
The primary fuel for the SKYBOLTTM reactor system is deuterium, a readily available, inexpensive, stable, non-radioactive, vastly-abundant isotope or form of hydrogen. Radioactive products are not produced and do not occur within the reactor. This is difficult for people to believe because fusion reactions themselves produce daughter products which are normally unstable. However, the catalyzing field (which is an electromagnetotoroid singularity) of the SKYBOLT(TM) reactor allows the fusion derived nuclei to share their momentum with the electromagnetotoroid structure itself thereby preventing the normal decay of such nuclei into daughter products. Thus, the SKYBOLTTM reactor will be much safer and cleaner than even a gasoline engine.
The SKYBOLTTM's unique operating principles have
made it possible to design and build a home reactor that is less
than 6.5 cubic feet in total volume. At well under 50 lbs., there
is no other equivalent 18 kW generator that can compare in utility,
portability or flexibility. It could be taken to remote cabin
sites, camping, or even installed in an electric automobile. If
installed to provide electricity for an electric auto, one could
drive back and forth across the
Low-temperature and nuclear fusion have seemed to be mutually exclusive phrases, however, with SingTech's breakthrough, the nuclear fusion process is catalyzed and accomplished not in a tens of millions of degrees Kelvin environment, but rather within the confines of a very intense, stable, and highly ordered electromagnetotoroidal singularity. The SKYBOLTTM process induces overlapping quantum states for the ionized fuel nuclei, and produces that which is similar to a monoenergetic beam state in the fuel nuclei. Consequently, the low-temperature claims associated with the SKYBOLT (TM) process are related to the ordered quantum states induced in the fuel nuclei by the reactor. The SKYBOLTTM nuclear fusion catalyzing process is not related to so-called 'cold fusion'.
The SKYBOLTTM Reactor will ionize and convert pairs of deuterium atoms (deuterons) into alpha particles (helium nuclei) by a totally new fusion catalyzation process which works by inducing overlapping quantum states in large numbers of ionized fuel nuclei. The alpha particles will leave the reaction zone in a highly directional high velocity pulsed beam which makes it possible to convert the kinetic energy of these charged particles (the product nuclei) directly into useable electricity with an efficiency approaching one hundred percent. Secondary fusion reactions (enhanced with core origin neutrons) of deuterium with the already produced helium, and of helium with helium to produce lithium and beryllium respectively, two light metals, will further increase the overall energy output of the SKYBOLTTM reactor system.
The cost of the fuel (deuterium gas) for the SKYBOLTTM reactors at present about ten dollars per gram. The SKYBOLTTM's conversion of 1 gram of deuterium (approx. 5.56 liters at STP) will generate nearly 160,000 kilowatt hours of electricity. Secondary reactions, as previously mentioned, could boost output even higher. The owner or lessee of an SKYBOLTTM class reactor would be paying less than 1/800th the rate per kilowatt hour normally charged to residential customers (based upon 1995 Pacific Power rates in Oregon). SingTech expects to manufacture the SKYBOLTTM reactor fully fueled to provide 500,000 kilowatt hours of uninterrupted power (nearly15 years worth) and inexpensively enough to be made available to the consumer for under $5,000.00 dollars. Considering residential power bills can easily be $125.00 per month, a typical home owner would break even in just 40 months or 3.33 years! From that point on having a SKYBOLTTM reactor would be like putting extra money in the bank every month. With a SKYBOLTTM reactor installed in your home, you could cut loose from the power and light companies forever!
