speed150mph Posted March 26, 2013 Share Posted March 26, 2013 Hey guys. Im building a massive Refinery Complex using 26 combutsion engines for pumps pipes, power, ect.. The setup I currently have is two pumps each powered by 4 blulectric engines feeding water from reseviour to 9 water tanks (3 blocks high). Wooden pipe powered by 2 blulectric engines feed water into a manifold, to one pipe that routes up and feeds water to the combution engines on three floors. Note that I will prime the cooling system first, filling all the engines with water before running. My engines will be burning oil, and I want to be able to run them for extended periods of time without shutting them down if possible. After reading more on it, Its obvious that this set-up will most likely not be enough, due to the small number of pumps, tanks, and the distrebution problems of running a single water pipe to keep up with the water demands of the engines. What would be the best set up, using as litle space and resources as possible, to keep my engines in the green. Another couple questions. Is there anything I can use to monitor the temperature of my engines. I know I can use a BC sensor card in the computer, but with this many engines, this doesnt really work out very well. Also how much water does a combution engine use as compared to oil? How long does it usually take for it to turn green. I know this is a large post, with alot of complex questions. Thanks for taking the time to answer :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
