Transfering coal into boilers? :: Factorio New Players

Actually a very good advice! Well, not really. The scenario (total blackout caused by slowed down inserters) is only theoretically possible but would require you to attach about 100 radars to a single steam engine to slow down the inserter enough for the boiler to run out of power (boiler has 390kW power, coal has 8 MJ so you need 1x coal every 20s).

If you built it correctly your inserter should be putting coal in the boilers unless the boilers are already full (5) coal and they don't work. When the 5 goes to 4 the inserter will put another one in it. Do a screenshot of that and show us.

2014-6-2 · It's the same with furnaces and assemblies (basically everything in the game except chests). Imagine it wouldn't be that way; the first inserter would fill its boiler to the brink even if it doesn't need it before any of the boilers behind it get any coal for themselves.

Make Inserters put more than 5 coal in a boiler

Hello all, how can I make my inserters put more than 5 coal into a boiler. The issue I'm having is this: I have laser turrets all over, 32 steam engines running on 8 boilers, with 14 accumulators. When the beasties attack my base, the power drops to 0. My accumulators can pick up the slack for a bit, but if the attack lasts for more than a few seconds I have to manually fill my boilers with

Steam engine - Factorio Wiki

2020-3-26 · Steam engines are the most basic electricity generator, available to the player at the start of the game. They produce electricity by consuming steam, using water pumped from an offshore pump that was heated to 165°C steam with boilers or to 500°C steam with heat exchangers. Steam that has a higher temperature than the maximum temperature of the steam engine (165°C) is consumed at the

2020-3-26 · Water is a liquid which can be infinitely extracted from water tiles using an offshore pump. After being pumped out and distributed via pipes, water can be used to generate electricity by converting it to steam via boilers or heat exchangers. The specific heat of water is 200J / 1°C x unit . It takes 200 joules to heat one unit of water by one degree Celsius.

2020-3-25 · The steam turbine consumes steam to create electric energy. It is usually used together with heat exchangers and a nuclear reactor.. While designed for the 500°C steam of a nuclear reactor, turbines can still be connected to boilers for use in conventional 165°C steam power. At this mode, the steam turbine acts equal to two separate steam engines, producing 1800 kW and consuming 60 …

Coal liquefaction looks like too beneficial in terms of fuel value! (Steam are assumed to be provided by 165°C boiler, which is 200 J/°C × (165-15)°C = 30 kJ per fluid unit.) But since coal is involved in other recipes, it is not simply just a matter of fuel value. Thus this (or …
