alficles Posted November 25, 2017 Share Posted November 25, 2017 I've gotten some reasonable oil things going and the heat is really starting to build up. It seems the common wisdom is to use supercooled oil and granite pipes. This just breaks when the oil freezes. I'm not sure how folks are making that work. Other folks suggest wheezeworts, but those don't seem to dissipate much heat at all. I'm currently using a massive pile of regulators to cool hydrogen to nearly 0K. I cool the regulators with a nearby antientropy device. I then pipe the hydrogen through the base in insulated abyssalite pipes, switching to granite when they are in front of something that really needs cooling, snaking back and forth. This kinda works. My hydrogen is leaving near 0K and returning at 44°C. But my equipment is still running really hot. It's like the hydrogen doesn't have enough mass to carry the heat with any speed. But I can't find a liquid that will work in decent ranges for this. All normal liquids freeze at those temps. And cooled gasses will break the pipes when they heat up and boil out. There's nothing with a large enough temp range that I can find. What do you use? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
