Simply because I would need to change my piping to deal with the oxygen coming out of the bath, instead of only from the electrolyzer.
Didn’t you say it still deletes oxygen, and just doesn’t give extra water? I wouldn’t really call that fixed. Or did I misunderstand?
If aqua regia were actually 3000L HCL + 1000L HNO3 => 4000L AR ( the correct ratio ) and the bath only used 1 batch instead of two, that is a total of 1700L H, 200L N, 600L O. In game, chlorplatanic acid says it is PtCl6H2, but according to wikipedia, it should be H6Cl6O2Pt. If we output 400L NO, and use the 1500L of Cl, 1500L H, 500L O to make 3500L of chloroplatanic acid, that leaves 200L H and 100L O left to make 300L of H2O.
The electrolyzer then should return the 3000L of HCL and 500L O2. The 400L of NO + 200L O2 would make 600L NO2. 600L of NO2 + 200L water would make 666L nitric acid plus ~133L NO, which when cycled back with some more oxygen should get the nitric acid… hrm… I don’t think that is quite going to reconstitute the original nitric acid… where did I go wrong?
