Steam - Factorio Wiki

Steam is a gas created by heating water in a boiler or heat exchanger. After being distributed via pipes, steam can be used to generate electricity via steam engines and steam turbines. Steam is also used in coal liquefaction in oil refineries. Since steam is a fluid, it can be stored in a storage tank.

Steam turbine - Factorio Wiki

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 steam/sec.

Steam engine vs Steam Turbine - Factorio Forums

May 28, 2017 · A turbine can use 60 liquid/second, a steam engine can use 30/s. In terms of power produced, 1 boiler can supply 1 turbine or 2 steam engines at most, and the electricity generated is equal - as is the chemical fuel and water consumed in the process. Alternatively, you can generate 900Kw of electricity from 500 degree steam with a simple steam

Power production - Factorio Wiki

Boilers have 2 water connectors, allowing them to pass water through to other adjacent equipment, but only 1 steam connector for output. 1 unit of steam is produced for each unit of water. A single unit of coal (4MJ) fed into a boiler and then utilised in a steam engine will result in 4MJ of energy added to an electrical system. It costs 30kJ energy to heat 1 unit of water to steam at 165°C, so one boiler will …
