I have a leaky oil fissure. I want to use the heat in it to run a steam turbine. I know how to do this. What I do not know how to do is to first get it to heat into petroleum, and then pump that out, as 400C petroleum will break any pump I can make, even steel. How do you heat up oil, and then cool it after in an automated fashion? Do you need an automation memory module that first raises the temperature to 400C, then once a liquid element sensor detects that it's started to change, you then toggle from heating to cooling back down below 275C? How does one automatically handle such a hot liquid that will break anything you use? Wait, do I have a reservoir that heats the bottom and cools the top, so when the petroleum transforms it automatically rises to the top and gets cooled, then I just pump the top off?
When raising the temperature of crude oil above 401.85C it changes into petroleum. Would it be possible to pipe in crude oil as coolant for example into a metal forge, and then loop it back in until it becomes petroleum? In short, will crude oil change to petroleum in a pipe and not break the pipe?
Petroleum generators output PO at a 40C and carbon dioxide at about 100-120C regardless of the input temperature (i tested it with petrol, but i assume with ethanol its the same behaviour). Is it intended? I thought Klei got rid of all the fixed temperature outputs? Should it at least work like the Electrolyser?
NoodleFish posted a topic in [Oxygen Not Included] - Suggestions and FeedbackIt's really not clear that the petroleum generator can use ethanol as fuel. Yes, it says "combustible liquid", but there's no indication anywhere that it actually can take ethanol as a fuel source. I recommend maybe just changing the first line to "Converts Petroleum or Ethanol into electrical Power."
