Short guide presenting a compact geyser station, helping to retrieve and store the gas of a geyser.
Dimension: 16 (L) * 6 (H)
Buffer Capacity: 150 kg
Storage Capacity: ∞ kg
The geyser station is an installation composed of 3 independant modules, which can be placed as you develop your base and unlock the different technologies. This installation avoids geyser overpressure problems and associated losses.
The three independant modules are:
- The geyser room: A small room isolated by a waterlock, with a gas pump and an atmo-sensor. nothing fancy.
- The buffer: A gas tank used as buffer/ short time storage, to smooth production spikes and hollows.
- The storage: A pressured gas storage storing the excess gas for when the geyser is dormant. Place next to the geyser, it can be used to tank the heat produce the geyser activity.
The geyser enters its active phase
- 1. The gas comes out of the geyser.
- 2. The gas stay in the geyser room, tanking the heat from the geyser activity.
- 3. The gas is sucked in the secondary gas network (green arrow), when the pressure of geyser room reach 800g/block.
- 4. The gas reachs the buffer/ gas tank.
- A. If the buffer is not full, the gas inter into the buffer and feed the primary network (the base network).
- B. If the buffer is full, the gas continues in the secondary network and enter in gas storage, helping to tank the geyser heat.
The geyser enters its dormant phase
- 6. The buffer empties.
- 7. The buffer is depleted, the primary network start empties.
- 8. The output of the tertiary network (yellowish arrow) is released, starting to feed the primary network.
- 9. The pump in the gas storage start pumping to feed the tertiary network.
