Overview

The Hydrogen Tank is a block used to store and distribute Hydrogen. Its main use however is in conjunction with the Large Hydrogen Thruster and the Small Hydrogen Thruster, where it is used as fuel.

It can also be used to refill Hydrogen Bottles by placing it into the tank's inventory and clicking on Refill Bottles, assuming that auto-refill isn't checked.

Usage

The hydrogen can be produced from Ice much the same as Oxygen inside Oxygen Generators. The hydogen tank must be directly connected via Conveyor blocks in order to receive hydrogen from the generator, and also to send the fuel to the hydrogen thrusters.

Indicator

The colored indicators on the tank show at a glance the current hydrogen level inside the tank.

Hydrogen Tank is not stockpiling and can be drained.

0: H2 level < 25%

Hydrogen Tank is set to Stockpile. The tank will not release any hydrogen and will drain other tanks that are not stockpiling.

0: H2 level < 25%
1: 25% <= H2 level < 50%
2: 50% <= H2 level < 75%
3: H2 level > 75%
4: Tank full.

Tips

  • Using a Connector block, you can vent the hydrogen out of the tanks by switching it to Throw Out mode much the same way you can with oxygen tanks.

Known Issues

  • Unlike cargo containers the actual cargo of the hydrogen tank does not in any way influence its mass. Therefore the large block tank will ALWAYS have a mass of 8.1 tons whether it's completely full of hydrogen or not.
