How much plastic are you using? A typical light oil spring cluster provides enough propane/butane for a full stack of plastic pulp in ~5 mins, and that’s more than I tend to use in several hours…
One of two turbines to be installed in the South Turbine Hall (concrete placeholder for the second in the background). Another 2 will go in the North Turbine Hall. Limiting factor is how long I can stand to anneal copper at a time… (if anyone has managed to automate that in a way that doesn’t either explode or pour out unannealed copper I’d love to see)
I have to say, these turbines are considerably more powerful than I expected! For fewer materials, higher efficiency, and easier automation I’m getting 3 times the power output expected from the steam turbine. Granted, it burns through fuel at a shocking pace - just briefly testing and fine-tuning the automation I burned through over a million litres of butane… It also means that I’m going to have to strip out and rewire half my base if I want to make use of that much power, and lay a more expensive high-capacity fuel line.
One request would be some way to limit the output to the nominal 4096 RU/t instead of the maximum 8192 RU/t, which makes using it to power a centrifuge or mining drill wasteful. Perhaps with a selector tag?
