On Rura Penthe I am running a convert-o-tron 250 which requires 200 KW of Cooling and a Max Cooling of 750 KW two Drill'o'matic excavators requiring 200 KW between them and a max of 200KW between each this seems to be a total of 400kw required my base has 4 x Medium Thermal Control System fins - each with a core heat xfer of 250 KW, max cooling of 19494 KW surely this would be more than enough to keep everything cool, so why are the fins glowing red hot, running at more than 100% ( keeps flickering to 100.5%) and sparking? I shut down the drills and ore processing ( the tanks were all full anyway) to stop explosions happening. The picture below shows my base layout. Is in fact happeneing because all the tanks got full?
How do the radiators work? I'm building a space station and I put a Convert-O-Tron 125 with 4 medium Thermal Control Systems mounted directly to it but it over heats in seconds. When I look at the panels I see "cooling" has 14%. My question is: How is that number calculated and when can I do to improve the Efficiency. Thanks in advance!
