Desalinator OverHeating on Gold Amalgam

  • Branch: Live Branch Version: Windows Pending

Using Gold Amalgam and Desalinator is broken and over heated already.

According to the description it has to reach 125 degrees first

Which it has not.

Take alook.

if you roll over it says base is 342  + 50.  bug description on the base?

Also it says "begins to overheat at 125."   

Whats going on??

The thing is broken, and may be cooled down a bit since then. Are you suer it was never at 125°C at any time?

Desalinators produce a ridiculous amount of heat internally, and gold amalgam is mediocre at radiating heat. Couple that with the fact that most salt water you put through it is already pretty warm, or almost 90C from a geyser, and it will overwhelm the heat radiation capability of the desalinators.

This isn't a bug, just a heat problem. Make them steel, or put them in a small puddle of crude oil.
