Lifegrow Posted October 4, 2017 Share Posted October 4, 2017 3 minutes ago, SusanMcO said: I got serious about trying it yesterday, and was very frustrated. I did a room of hydrogen, with hydrogen in mazing pipes around, then a total of three gas regulators, and in an abutting room (both abyssalyte walls) with then the cooled hydrogen mazing through a room of oxygen (that had a liquid pump set up ahead of time for any liquid O2), with wolframite plug bridges - and I could not get the O2 cold enough. I finally added in some hydrogen which helped, but I still ended up liquifying my hydrogen in the gas regulator pipes before I made any LOX. My O2 actually got to -300+ without liquifying in the setup. What does it sound like I'm doing wrong?! Hmmm, a lot to ask here - without pics/save files it's really hard to comment. Firstly you only need 1 gas regulator in theory, multiple will just speed up the initial priming time. Only exception is if you have a massive cooling setup, i.e. you're gaining more heat than a single regulator can remove. Liquefying your hydrogen in the pipes means you've not got some sort of switch in place to re-route the hydrogen if it's say, below -240, to avoid it cooling too far. Consider having a switch that toggles the thermo regulator off, and redirects the flow either with a bridge or a filter. I know you've said you're not a fan of videos, however I did throw together a rough video a few weeks back showing a few different methods to create liquid O2 - all of which have switches/piping to avoid over-cooling. full vid : Skip to 4:43 to see a simple regulator bypass.
