chemie Posted November 21, 2017 Share Posted November 21, 2017 So I created a logic to close and then open a middle door to create a vacuum and what I thought would be a thermal insulation between a hot and ambient side. Thermal lock. The vacuum appears to be created (you can't read anything with mouse over but thermal shows cold). But the doors still conduct heat out. I tried different materials for the middle door but it seems to still conduct? Note the pipes are all abyssalite. Non thermal image. Hot water tank which I wanted to use automation to prevent heat into main room. Old design was to stagger the door with hot door high and cold door low but I thought, why not automate with vacuum lock. What am I doing wrong? Or is this not possible? (For automation, there is a switch triggered when dups enter. It counts down for 20 seconds so they can do whatever and leave (avoids door closing while inside and getting them all lost and broken...so then the door closes for 2 seconds, then opens and stays open).
