Liquid Steel is the Liquid state of Steel.
- Since Steel melts at 2426.85 °C but Liquid Steel only freezes at 1083.85 °C, Liquid steels is ideal as a working liquid for very high temperature processes. It can be reheated by using it as a coolant in a Metal Refinery.
- Liquid Steel can be used to melt Regolith into Magma, which generates large amounts of excess heat.
- It can be used to melt natural metal tiles to avoid the 50% mass loss from mining.
- It can be used to melt Sand into Glass. The conversion is 4 times more efficient than a Glass Forge (or 2 times after considering mining) and often requires less labor and energy.
- It can be used to melt Rust into Iron without losing mass.
- Advanced contraptions can use Liquid Steel to melt Abyssalite or Insulation into Liquid Tungsten. This generally requires Insulated Pipe made of Insulation to transport the fluid without melting the pipe.
- Cooling a full Pipe of Water with a Steel Thermo Aquatuner in Vaccuum will displace enough heat to melt the Aquatuner before the overheat damage breaks it. This produces 1200kg of Liquid Steel. A Steel Liquid Pump can be used to pump the liquid into a pipe by using the extended range of pumps, repairing the overheat damage or by repeatedly deconstructing and reconstructing the Pump.
