(54) Title (EN): METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CARRYING OUT NICKEL AND HYDROGEN EXOTHERMAL REACTIONS
(54) Title (FR): PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL POUR RÉALISER DES RÉACTIONS EXOTHERMIQUES ENTRE LE NICKEL ET L'HYDROGÈNE

(57) Abstract:
(EN): A method and apparatus for carrying out highly efficient exothermal reaction between nickel and hydrogen atoms in a tube, preferably, though not necessary, a metal tube filled by a nickel powder and heated to a high temperature, preferably, though not necessary, from 150 to 5000C are herein disclosed. In the inventive apparatus, hydrogen is injected into the metal tube containing a highly pressurized nickel powder having a pressure, preferably though not necessarily, from 2 to 20 bars.
(FR): L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil permettant de réaliser une réaction exothermique hautement efficace entre des atomes de nickel et d'hydrogène dans un tube, de préférence, bien que cela ne soit pas indispensable, un tube métallique rempli d'une poudre de nickel et chauffé à une température élevée, de préférence, bien que cela ne soit pas indispensable, de 150 à 5000° C. Dans l'appareil selon l'invention, l'hydrogène est injecté dans le tube métallique contenant une poudre de nickel hautement pressurisée, à une pression, de préférence mais non nécessairement, de 2 à 20 bars.
