'''Coolant''' is a fluid in IC².  It exists to make [[Cooling Cell]]s and to cool a [[fluid reactor]].
Coolant is an important fluid added in the Experimental Builds of IC2 in order to make [[Coolant Cell]]s, and cool [[Nuclear Reactor]]s in heat mode.

As shown, for every 1000 mB of coolant produced, using normal water requires 8 dust while using Distilled Water only requires 1 dust.
 
 
The first method is to put 1 bucket of water into the left hand tank per coolant cell, via pumping it in (using a [[Pump]] for example, using a [[Fluid Ejector Upgrade]] to push fluid from another machine into the tank, or by shift-right clicking on the canning machine with a [[Universal Fluid Cell]] filled with water. Then, you insert 8 [[Dusts|Lapis Lazuli Dust]] into the middle slot per coolant cell, and providing the canning machine has power, it will make liquid coolant.
 
 
 
Coolant can be more effectively made using [[Distilled Water]], so that only 1 lapis dust is needed per bucket of coolant, opposed to 8 with normal water.
 
 
 
Coolant can be extracted from the canning machine using universal fluid cells, but the best method to get it into cells is to put [[Empty Cell]]s in the top left hand slot of the canning machine, so the coolant will instead go into the cells opposed to the right hand tank. If there is coolant in the right hand tank of the canning machine, it can be pumped or fluid ejector upgraded into another canning machine, or into a [[Bottling Plant]], where with the canning machine in fill cell from tank mode, and empty cell is put in the left hand slot

Coolant (in fluid form) is also a key component of energy production in [[fluid reactor]]s, where it is cyclically heated by the reactor and cooled by a [[Liquid Heat Exchanger]].
 
 
Liquid Coolant is also used in nuclear reactors when they are active. The heat can be vented through various [[Heat Vent]] to the coolant tanks to make [[Hot Coolant]]. The hot coolant can then be used in a [[Liquid Heat Exchanger]] with a [[Stirling Generator]] to use the heat to generate EU. The hot coolant will then be cooled and will become a regular coolant which can be used back in the reactor.

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.



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.
