Liquid coolant and utilities

Recommended Posts

The idea of add liquid coolant is simple.

The liquid coolant would be a new material storable in little tanks, with little amount needed (ie, little consumption).
This material could be used in engines, intakes and heat shields to refrigerate these parts (that are overheat in high velocities in the atmosphere commonly).

The use of this material could be automatic or programmed in action groups, also could add a little more isp to overheat engines, due that can be used like propellant when is used to refrigerate.

Also could be used in thermal nuclear engines instead liquid fuel, the difference of functionality is minimal, with the only difference of that liquid coolant is more expensive but can prevent overheat.

Don't quote me but I am pretty sure all engines are cooled by oxidizer before burning it. Heat shield would add a ton of weight and decrease its max temp by adding coolant lines
