I've been setting up serpentine conveyor rail lines that run through steam, then hydrogen to tap and cool down liquid metals from metal volcanoes. An auqatuner liquid loop cools down the hydrogen chamber. The attached picture shows how this is setup. Normally, it works just fine, outputting solid metal around 40 C when the metal volcano is active. However, every once in a while the auto sweeper picks up a small amount of metal in the mcg's , probably because it is the last little bit of liquid metal left over from a volcano eruption. For some reason, this small amount doesn't cool down at all, even though other much larger amounts on the same conveyor rail are cooling down normally, so the conveyor rail temperature sensor doesn't allow the material through and the whole thing comes to a stop.
In the pictures below, the conveyor rail has 2861 mcg of cobalt at 1443.1 C and the temperature never changes. I need to temporarily flip the settings on the conveyor rail thermo sensor to get the small amount of cobalt out of the hydrogen chamber. Right next to it, in the other picture, is 7.7 kg of cobalt at 40.1 C.
Build a metal volcano tamer that uses a serpentine conveyor rail line to cool the metal down. Wait until the auto sweeper picks up a small amount of metal.
