Brine is a source of Water and Salt. It is naturally obtainable in low temperature areas of Tide Pool Biome.

Usage[]

Desalinator can turn Brine into Water and Salt. 5 kg/s Brine = 3.5 kg/s Water + 1.5 kg/s Salt.

When heating to 104.75 °C (vaporization point + 2 °C), Brine will turn into Steam (70% mass) and Salt (30% mass). This is heat multiplying, as the combined mass and SHC of the products hold 27kDTU/kg more than 1 kg of brine at its vaporization point. Running hot (>40C) brine through a desalinator, however, is heat deleting.

Production[]

Brine is naturally obtainable in low temperature areas of Tide Pool Biome.

When cooling Salt Water down to -9.5 °C (freezing point - 2 °C), it will turn into Ice (77% mass) and Brine (23% mass).

Melting Brine Ice will turn it into Brine.
