Reagents

Types

Chemical compounds are simplified under the generic "reagent" denomination. All reagents are assumed to be liquids of some sort.

All reagents have a coarseness factor (a baseline could be the atom count) examples:

  • dirt: 1000 (as coarse as it gets)
  • caffein: 24
  • sugar: 12
  • ethanol: 9
  • water: 3

Volatile

  • gasses in reagent form, ex: water is a volatile reagent because it can be converted to steam.
  • Can be evaporated.

Purification

Unlike typical ss13 I don't really want to make it too easy to separate reagents. Because that sounds interesting and also fun.

Filtration

Reagent can be caught by a filter if its coarseness is higher than the filter's , example:

  • Paper coffee filter: 500
  • Expensive laboratory membrane: 10

Using a paper filter and a coffee pot for instance, you can brew ground coffee by mixing it with hot water.

  • Ground coffee will react with the hot water (heat catalyst) and produce a mixture of water, caffein, and dirt (yeaaah).
  • Filtering the mixture with a paper filter will separate the liquid part (the coffee!) from the dirt (essentially the coffee ground).

Evaporation

Boiling a reagent mixture will cause the volatile reagents to turn into gas form (should that be a heat catalysed reaction or a function of the machine?).

See Evaporator.

(what about the boil temperature? Given that all our gasses excepted steam are gasses at STP?)

Solidification

Reagents with the "solid" flag can be turned into cubes/pellets/sheets/bars.

Example: Water will turn into Ice below 0°C and Ice can be fed into a Compactor which will produce Ice cubes.

Could this be used for food production too? like compacted protein bars?
