Joes Cell question One
What is a Joe Cell?
A Joe Cell is an electrolysis cell built with concentric stainless steel pipes. In one configuration, the pipes have diameters of 1, 2, 3, and 4 inches. Sometimes a five-inch pipe is also included. Different theories hold that the cylinders should be between 4″ and 10″ long. There are many theories of how the cell works. Among those who believe in Orgone energy, the Joe Cell is believed to be an Orgone Accumulator.
An operating cell progresses through a series of stages, the first of which is simple electrolysis, the second is referred to as the seeding stage, in which the cell builds up a charge in the water, which eventually reaches a point where the cell will run an engine. There are higher stages that supposedly can be achieved. For example, in stage 4 the cell is said to exhibit antigravity effects that reduce the weight of the vehicle in which the cell is installed.
Once the water in the cell is sufficiently “charged,” the cell can continue to operate with no external source of electric power.
In one report, the cell is said to generate a gas that energetically implodes when ignited. The tube that conveys this gas away from the cell is connected to a blind fitting or blank plug on the housing of the vehicle’s carburetor. This means that there is no physical opening through this fitting into the interior of the carburetor or the interior of the intake manifold. The author believed that the mysterious gas must therefore possess the ability to pass THROUGH the metal of the carburetor housing to reach the interior of the engine. The author did not address the obvious question of why much of the gas does not escape through the walls of the tube before it even reaches the carburetor.
Another report says that the cell should be connected via an aluminum tube to a location on the engine block close to a water passage. It will then “charge” the engine’s coolant water. The charged water is then believed to somehow provide the energy to run the engine.
A conventional gasoline-powered vehicle experiences explosions inside its engine, but a Joe cell-powered vehicle experiences implosions. Therefore the timing must be significantly advanced so the spark occurs during the compression stroke. A running engine will get cold rather than hot (negentropy). An engine powered by a well-made Joe cell can be idled down to 1 or 2 rpm, and could easily accelerate to 18,000 rpm if the valvetrain, pistons and rods were able to withstand the stresses. Joe cells are notorious for messing up a car’s electronic systems, so it is a bad idea to couple a cell with an electronically fuel-injected engine.
The following statements are attributed to “Joe” himself.
The water in the cell is not consumed.
The cell runs cold to the touch.
It takes a period of time before the engine will run from the cell. It then has an erratic power output and works in an intermittent fashion.
When the cell is removed from the car, the engine takes an appreciable time to return to “normal” and run from the original fuel.
If the cell is left in the car for a long period, the engine becomes “charged”. From this point, the cell is not required for the motor to run.
All spark plug leads can be removed and the engine will still run as long as the ignition coil and distributor remain functional.
The output of the cell does not have to be connected to the internals of the engine. A close external coupling will do.
The cell requires the “charging” of the water to work.
The cell requires a specific style of construction, little understood by most constructors.
The source of power for the cell and its use has great value for some individuals. These individuals are creating misinformation, cloaking operations and inducing fear in cell constructors.
Human presence can affect the operation of the cell in a positive or negative way.
