So recently in sandbox mode I figured out that you can use a steam turbine to cool stuff to lower than 125C. I haven’t seen any builds utilizing this concept, so I wanted to share it to increase awareness because of how beneficial it seems to be, especially since it would open up more builds to using gold instead of steel. Basically all you need to do is separate the steam chamber into two separate zones by using insulated tiles. Dump the water on the exit side, and the steam turbine's cooler output water can cool stuff to lower than 125C. It seems to work well with steam chambers using 2 steam turbines outputting to the same liquid vent too. I just started messing around with it myself and it seems super useful. Anyone currently using this concept in their builds? Here's a short video demonstration showing the proof of concept with 1kg/s of 550C sour gas becoming safe for gold amalgam pumps.
