The original topic is obsolete because this issue is gone after update. The new icedrofan is a fair game. It increases the temperature of ice in it until it melts, and you get all the water back. I would say it's somewhat like tempshift plates made of ice. The difference is that it requires manual operation, and only melts 50kg ice at a time, and it melts at a constant rate, while tempshift's melting rate depends on the temperature difference from environment. Ice machine has its own independent changes, its electricity usage and ice converting rate depends on the input water's temperature. below is the obsolete content. It will provide only cooling not nearly as much as melting pure ice would in most cases. - Some basic knowledge about icedrofan - Here is some example scenarios 1. ice maker just made some 50 kg ice, and the ice was sent to icedrofan to cool a room of 40 C gas. 2. you got 50 kg ice at nearly 0 C, let's say -5 C, and the ice was sent to icedrofan to cool 5 C gas. The math is consistent with what I observed in game. I think that's enough to draw a conclusion. - Conclusion Obviously icedrofan deletes very little heat from environment. In order to make it worth, you have to use ice of -3C to cool temperature < 6.42C, even tho you can, what's the point of doing that? Not to mention icedrofan deletes ice / water source. In a situation where you want an instant convenient temporary cooling, instead of icedrofan / hydrofan, I highly suggest that one use tempshift plate made of (polluted) ice, let the liquid from melted (polluted) ice running on tiles to further cool down the surrounding gases and structures, and mob the floor. Tempshift made of ice will have same temperature as the ice used to craft it. @SakuraKoi Thx for pointing out the mistake in my calculation.
