Butterfly reactor [Steel, cobalt, ceramic, plastic only] 100% uptime


Recommended Posts

Stop posting in the thread for this design. I made this thread to showcase and discuss this design. If you would like to do the same for your design just make another thread. It's that easy

It's very safe, but the sacrificial zone is large. Saps heat from the steam using indirect turbines before the steam is absorbed by the primary recirculating turbines.

100% uptime, spits out nuclear waste at about 230 C. Uses basic materials only. Most exotic material used is nuclear waste as coolant, which I'm not going to explain right now how to do but it is possible. Maybe 9.3 KW at steady state. 

I'll explain more later, here's an image dump and save:

I can present my version of an Research Reactor. 1 sensor (not including AT), the usual materials. I will finish it soon and translate it.

Sorry for writing in someone else's topic...

Hmm, I don't understand. Why do you need all this complicated setup to manage a research reactor?

Hmm. Can you send a blueprint of that?

Is that a question for me?  My circuit is simple, it combines power generation and radbolts. Of course I will describe the circuit in detail and enclose the blueprint.

Or did I misunderstand you.

Yes, but it's not about that. I was asking if you could use the blueprint mod and share the blueprint with us.

Is that compact enough? :)

Nice! But I've got a few questions.

Can I harness radbolts from this research reactor?

What do you do with nuclear waste?

How do store it for later usage? (also radbolt production)

How much power does it produce?

Is it 100% uptime? (given that i supply it with enriched uranium all the time)

I think I'll make some alteration of my own...

Yes, you can take them out of the circuit on the left side.

What do you do with nuclear waste?

I cool it down to about 205C and store it separately

How do store it for later usage? (also radbolt production)

They emit less than 3 rads. This is not dangerous.

How much power does it produce?

The previous circuit gives 6000W (and can be expanded). This one is slightly less. I will calculate exactly later.

Is it 100% uptime? (given that i supply it with enriched uranium all the time)

I've already tested it over 50 cycles and I'm not done yet. An uninterrupted supply of uranium is not required for the safety of the circuit. What is critical is the availability of water.

I'm preparing a big article on obtaining, storing, and using radiation. That's why I'm a little late. A little patience...

Can you maybe make your own thread? No offense, but this wasn't meant to be a "reactor discussion" area. I was just sharing my design.

Beautifully symmetric. But I do believe you meant to write KW, not MW. Is that Net production, or without counting the power consumption?

Net. Power consumption is pretty minimal, the AT should recycle most of the power it consumes.

Can you please remove the picture or put it into a spoiler? For some reason your picture shows up in the thumbnail preview for my thread.
