Steam Boiler (MineFactory Reloaded)
|Source Mod||MineFactory Reloaded|
|ID Name|| |
|Affected by Gravity||No|
The Steam Boiler is a block added by the MineFactory Reloaded mod. It is used to produce Steam from Water, using fuel such as Lava, Coal or Charcoal. It will build up temperature from 20°C up to 750°C and start producing at 100°C at the rate of 400mB per tick using 100mB of water. As the temperature rises the work speed will increase correspondingly. A Filter must be used on the Fluiduct supplying the water to keep the Steam from forcing the water back. When using Lava Buckets the empty buckets need to be extracted with an Itemduct and Servo, otherwise the Boiler will stop heating. It takes at least 12 buckets of Lava to reach 100°C.

Self-sustaining Energy Source
Using a Lava Fabricator and a Fluid Transposer to fuel a Steam Boiler supplying steam to a Steam Turbine, which in turn energises the Lava Fabricator, Once primed the system can be self-sustaining and can produce enough steam to run 4 more turbines achieving an energy generation of over 600 RF per tick.
It is also possible to utilize one or more Big Reactor Turbines to produce Flux at extremely high fuel efficiency. Using Wooden Planks as for an array of Steam Boilers (a Farming Station can be used to produce infinite logs) one can build a totally self-sustaining system that is capable of netting 40,000+ rf/t; the Farming Station will draw an average of 200rf/t. Note that this produces more Flux per tick than an Ultimate Solar Panel — even while disregarding the fact that solar panels cannot generate at night which effective halves their output on large multiplayer servers where sleeping is not an option.
The Steam Boiler can be set to explode in the MFRconfig file if no water is supplied and the block has reached 100.0°C, by changing the line
steamBoilerExplodes = false (default) to true.
