Gas Turbine Powered Cooling

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I had a brilliant idea.... I made a jet turbine engine, the propane tanks used for fuel when its running get VERY cold because of the releasing fuel going from a -44 degree F liquid to gas .... I just finished my turbine.. and i put the fuel tank in a tupperware container full of water, and its come to the point where iv'e had to put antifreeze in the water.


So my idea was.. kick the radiator and reservoir on my rig's cooling system, and just dip the send and return lines into the tupperware container.

Of course i could just sit the tank in there and drain the fuel right out of the can and itll do the exact same thing, but what fun is that? nothing even makes a loud noise...

Anyhow... just an idea... o and if anyones curious about the actual engine:

For the power consumption.... there are cheaper, quieter, and more effective ways of cooling. It probably will work though.

its very true, in energy used/utilized its probably the worst idea. But you must admit the sound of it does come across as completely badass.
