Coolant (Fluid)

From Industrial-Craft-Wiki

Coolant is a fluid in IC². It exists to make Cooling Cells and to cool a fluid reactor.

Recipe

Coolant is made in the Canning Machine in Fluid Enrich mode, combining Lapis Lazuli Dust with either normal water or Distilled Water.

Note: The coolant would either go into the output tank or an available cell, not both. The GUI is merely an example.



As shown, for every 1000 mB of coolant produced, using normal water requires 8 dust while using Distilled Water only requires 1 dust.

Uses

Coolant can be placed in the world, but serves no useful purpose that way other than looking nice. A more practical use is to make 10K Cooling Cells.

Coolant (in fluid form) is also a key component of energy production in fluid reactors, where it is cyclically heated by the reactor and cooled by a Liquid Heat Exchanger.
