Dont give up the ghost on this idea, I am pursuing it. You dont specifically
want to use a tesla coil but high frequency water shattering has been
patented by Puharich. He names 4 tetrahedral water resonant frequencies,
which incidentally my post of a 5mm discharge today on tesla list as
Magnifier reply was done at this 3rd named resonant freq. In the past I have
been able to produce this effect with a 1 cm violet discharge on a 15 watt
draw that resembles a tesla coil in miniature operation.
See from http://www.escribe-dot-com/science/freenrg/m1936.html
an alternating current looking into a
highly non-linear load,i.e., the water solution. This alternating current
generator (Component 1) is so designed that at peak load it is in
resonance,and the vector diagrams show that the capacitive reactance and the
inductive reactance are almost exactly 180 degrees out of phase,so that the
net power output is reactive, and the dissipative power is very small. This
design insures minimum power losses across the entire output system.
I have employed this idea and designed the electrolysisor in a resonant
rise of amperage of 4.8 of the amperage input. The work on producing
the high frequency is ongoing. Contact off list for info.
