Are there any conditions in which I would lose power from pumping oil, refining, and turning it into solid fuel via petrolium gas, light oil, or heavy oil?Energywise you should be making a profit (for a quick test I threw 100 solid fuel in a boiler and got out 520 soild fuel …
2015-10-12 · I generally transition my boilers over to solid fuel as soon as I can since I also use solid fuel to run trains and my car. I use a quadruple chest belt buffer to keep the oil flowing. As far as smelting, I don't bother because electric furnaces make that obsolete and I'd end up refactoring twice.
Question Boilers use up coal at an alarming rate (self.factorio) If your boiler runs out of fuel, it will stop producing steam, but the engines won't stop (and cause a blackout) until they've consumed all of the existing steam that's left in the system. I use a priority splitter to arrange my fuel supply to use wood, then solid fuel
2019-4-18 · However, electric furnaces use up energy, and when I burn coal (or solid fuel) in boilers to power these, I am also causing pollution. Assuming I am not using solar panels but only boilers and steam engines to power my ore industry, which one is the greener option per unit of ore smelted?
Personally, I only use solid fuel for oil-fired power stations as decribed in this thread. Coal is far more common and doesn't any processing so it's what I use for everything else, but a steam powerplant that can run indefinitely is far cheaper and smaller than an equivalent solar array.
2019-4-17 · Factorio is a game in which you build and maintain factories. This is a compendium of the most common Factorio facts (v0.17). A huge thanks to to all the contributors on github, as well as the community who made the previous cheat sheets and other resources; such as the Wiki, Reddit, and Factorio Discord from which this is all based on. This is only a sliver of the info available, for more in
2017-4-29 · If you don't count energy for the processing (because of solar), you turn 10 coal into 5 solid fuel. Coal is 8MJ (16 for 2 coal), solid fuel is 25MJ, so unless I missed something, you gain a fairly substancial 9MJ each time, which means an increase of about half from your starting coal.
2019-5-14 · The boiler is part of the steam engine process. In order for it to work, it must be supplied with cold water and fuel. It heats up the water for the steam engine to use…
