I thought that I had found a good use of the thermo-aquatuner: it takes 5x more power then a thermo-regulator, but most liquids have less specific heat than most gasses, making it less efficient, but not polluted water. With polluted water, the thermo-aquatuner is more energy efficient cooling it so I thought I could make a closed loop of cool polluted water going around my base to absorb heat, then dump it into petroleum on the way to the generator. The problem is that even with two diamond temp shift plates to help distribute heat to a coil of radiant fluid heat pipes, even a gold amalgam aquatuner overheats within one or two seconds. I thought OK, so make it out of steel so it can handle the high heat. You can't; it can only be made of base unrefined metals. The only way this building can be used is either if it were made of steel, or if you limit the flow of water into it to small units at a time, which would then render it far less energy efficient than a thermo-regulator cooling a full payload of hydrogen.
