CasualRaz Posted November 20, 2017 Share Posted November 20, 2017 Hello one and all, I'm CasualRaz a semi-longtime lurker on the oxygen Reddit/forums, always checking out builds/ideas to use in my base. Today I've been working on an easy way to cool down a self powering electrolyzer setup which is normally difficult due to its tiny nature of the build. Its close to impossible to drip water on the system so here's my take on cooling it down. heres a link to the album https://imgur.com/a/1x9JW . Here is the main overview of the two setups, the top is the normal setup of a single electrolyzer although I did add a chamber for future cooling. the top chamber quicker hits its working temp from outputting gas at 70oC, flooding the top base with top oxygen. The lower test is dumping the heat into the oil chamber with shift plates and bridges to shift the heat into the medium. The mini pump is setup to return the fluid to its balancing chamber if it reaches 15oC (although you can change as you like). The Oil is supplied from a pump that sends the oil to an aqua tuner (with a split and liquid cutoff depending on if the oil needs more cooling) the oil flows up even if the aqua tuner is off (standard bypass but using a cutoff) Oil flow is stopped using vent pressure plugging :). In a normal base the extra tiles that are located over the oil chamber are unneeded and just an oversight to keeping the two rooms thermally isolated. all insulated pipes/tiles are abyssalite Here's the heat overlay for the two rooms, the setup is abit rushed and could use some cleaning but it still works like a charm even if it is abit late game for needing plastic for the mini pump to save space. Automation Overlay, not much to say here. the doors on the right lead to void and open when pressure hits 1000g, mainly to simulate a dupe or two, it destroys some heat from the test but its the same for both rooms, (well the top room has better heat loss due to air flow in this case but still overheats) A close up for your inspection And a final revised (cleaned up abit ) (I had trouble getting the Oil to stay within the airflow tiles on the main experiment.) I like this system as its very modular so all you have to do is connect into a oil cooling system and it doesn't require much extra space to do an amazing job without the need to pump gases to a cooling system then back out and yes I did have it set abit cold (15c in this case) when I first built it it was set at 5c and super cold O2 was rushing out. maybe someone can find a use for that considering oil can go to -40oC. let me know your ideas and such on this probably over engineered madness CasualRaz away!
