The Oxygen Generator is a functional Block available for Small Ships, Large Ships and Stations. It is used to process Ice into breathable Oxygen and Hydrogen fuel.
If connected to a Conveyor Network via one of the inventory access points, the Oxygen Generator can automatically pull in Ice from attached inventories to process. Oxygen and hydrogen generated will travel through the conveyor system, and will be stored in an Oxygen Tank or Hydrogen Tank. If there are no tanks with vacancy in the conveyor network, the Oxygen Generator will not process Ice.
The oxygen generator can be used to refill Oxygen and Hydrogen Bottles by placing empty or partly filled bottles into the O2 generators inventory and either clicking "Refill bottles" or activating the control panel option "Auto-Refill".
|Working - The generator is producing gas.|
|Idle - The gas has nowhere to go.|
|Stopped - The generator is out of Ice.|
|Off - The generator is out of power or turned off.|
Oxygen and Hydrogen are produced at a 1:2 ratio. If tank space is available for both gases, both are produced at the same time. If space is only available for one of the gases, only that type is produced.
Note: The speed of the generator is unaffected by the assembler efficiency and the refinery speed world settings.
|Large||250 L/s||500 L/s|
|Small||50 L/s||100 L/s|
|Only Oxygen||Only Hydrogen||Both|
|10 L O2||20 L H2||5 L O2 + 10 L H2|
- Sometimes it may be wise to disable your oxygen generator when you don't need it. This is because it can generate excess amounts into your oxygen tanks. If your oxygen tanks are full, you cannot depressurize a room as there is no where for the oxygen to go.
