Why is this getting cold damage in a hot area?


Recommended Posts

Or more specifically, the water vapor is condensing into water in the gas pipes which cause "cold damage". 

Any time a gas or liquid changes into something else (water<=>vapor, oil=>petroleum, oxygen=>liquid oxygen, etc) and the mass is more than 10% of the maximum volume allowed for the piping, it will cause damage based on which way the phase transition happened.

If you want a simple way to avoid this is to remplace your gaz pump with a mini gaz pump

 

Edit : yeah mini gaz pump overheat at 75°c and can't be build with gold for extra °c sorry for that false information.

Instead of mini pump, just use a liquid valve and setup it on 1000g/sec, the pipe never break because the mass is too low to break it.

The pipe before the valve will keep breaking though. You need at least 2 segments before you put the valve. If it`s insulated it might help a bit but it needs to be at least ceramic.
