Blazing Falken posted a topic in [Oxygen Not Included] - General DiscussionEverything's gonna be alright... The "crying crab" is a relatively simple and viable no-exploitation heat deletion system, made possible by harnessing the phase-change cooling of Ethanol. Heat load can be anything-- liquid, gas, tiles, pipes, etc. Aquatuner will run 100% of the time unless coolant temps get too low. Coolant used is polluted water. Construction: In action: Warning: 25 mb .gif 12,000 kg of water. 89.9c to 74c after 20 cycles. Anyone want to do the DTU math? Update: Cycle 760: 41.2c Cycle 770: 32.8c Efficiency may increase at lower temps... Cycle 775: 28.5c Cycle 780 24.0c Cycle 785 19.1c Cycle 790: 13.2c * Low temp safety cutoff has been reached. AT no longer running at 100% Dear, little crabby, don't shed no tears. No, pokeshell, no cry.
Blazing Falken posted a topic in [Oxygen Not Included] - General DiscussionRe-titled since this isn't worth the effort. 3 consecutive days of sleep deprivation can do wonders. Sorry, folks. Nothing super fancy this time but possibly the most efficient way to abuse game mechanics, this time courtesy of the ice maker. Full speed operation will require one dupe dedicated to operating it but the more the merrier. Materials are aluminum and ceramic, coolant loop is polluted H2O. The main pool is filled with a total of 2,000 kg of water. Vacuum in lower chamber is recommended for best efficiency. Doors are optional depending on how much cold bleed you find acceptable vs. power/time lost. Note that in later screenshots there is a door to the lower pump area. This door is NOT optional as it is for recovering dropped water bottles... because dupes are jerks like that. The 2 metal tiles to the right are where you would load heat to be removed. The 2x2 water pocket to the right is being used for demonstration purposes. Updated conveyor screenshot to match original design. Bridge direction AND position were off. Sleep is important. At first the dupes will be idle frequently because water takes a long time to cool and freeze. This phase will not last long. As the temperature of the water pool dives, so does the "slow" portion of the cooling process. Once the water inside the ice maker goes below -0.6c, the water becomes ice. Since ice has a higher conductivity than water, the ice maker cools it down to -20c much more rapidly. Since the ice maker is still generating heat at a fixed rate, the heat removal has greater efficiency. Pre-heated room and all contents to ~50c for demonstration. Pool temps after just 3 cycles: After 10 cycles: After 15 cycles: We've reached nearly max efficiency where water being fed to the ice makers is almost instantly turned to ice and reaches -20c very quickly. After 20 cycles: External 4,000kg pool heat removed after 20 cycles (36c starting temp, 4.2c final.) Keep in mind, this is all while removing nearly 50c of heat from the entire system in the process. Cooling ability from this point onward will be a lot stronger.
