Ixenzo Posted November 21, 2019 Author Share Posted November 21, 2019 100 kg/tile naphtha and 10 kg/tile supercoolant, naphtha is on top. Notes: oxygen is created in the top right tile of the electrolyzer and pushed into the air tile to go to the bottom chamber. Hydrogen is created in the top right left tile, and is pushed up the ladder tile to collect up top. During electrolyzer's operation naphtha tiles slowly lose mass, and upon reaching a limit the leftmost naphtha tile is replaced with oxygen. The remaining naphtha tile has a mass of 39.9kg in all five cases. The leftmost electrolyzer has a wall to the left, and is still working, however currently (some time after the other five died) it has a total 192.5 kg of naphtha. At some point the rightmost electrolyzer had trapped an oxygen tile at ladder and a hydrogen tile was moving between the electrolyzer's top left tile and the air tile to the right of that. It seemed like it was deleting massive amounts of oxygen. Vacuumed the affected tiles and it ran fine until the naphtha ran out. Same thing as above, but with 10 kg/tile of water and pwater. The water tiles were deleted very quickly. The leftmost electrolyzer has 28.9 kg total of water on the top layer. Questions: where did the extra water come from? What makes the solid wall to the left seemingly reduce mass of some liquids, but create others? Moreover, how does this wall help run the electrolyzer for much longer and possibly permanently? Why equalize the temperature the gases with metal tiles, oxygen will get cooled a few degrees but hydrogen will go up to ~56? If it's for the generators, fine, but for LH2 it's just extra heat to remove. Quote During electrolyzer's operation naphtha tiles slowly lose mass Same with the water tiles. They're slowly depleted until the leftmost tile is gone. I think it's the hydrogen spawning in that tile destroying gram-scale amounts of water that didn't escape to the right tile. This slowly erodes the mass until there is enough hydrogen to resist water flowing back, hydrogen gets pushed up by the oxygen pressure from the left airflow tile (the oxygen air flow tiles of a neighbouring electrolyzer). The wall of the leftmost electrolyzer prevents this from happening, though I still don't know where did 7.5 kg of naphtha go or where did extra water come from.
