Another esoteric cooling system, using beams of particles to transmit heat between two surfaces. Proton cooling is better at transmitting heat from an object, but photons can travel faster without any of the issues of proton collision

    Interesting way of heat transfer. I thought it wouldn't work with ambient heat on, but It only needs to be encapsulated in 2px of insulation on each side of the beam. Also, hello fellow Stormlight archive fans!

    heating up the reactors to around 1200 makes it unstable, which then the boyl starts expanding, which in turn makes the uran heat up, and it just keeps on going

    If you add FILT next to the 2 ends of the photon beam, the beam will cool better

    easily wrecked by N-grav based things unfortunately, so it would be hard for this to function if there were any gravity generating particles on the save (unless you use Ngrav wall)

    So basically kinda just remote cooling, seems like a simple but useful idea, wonder why I don't see this more often. +1

    hey Windspren nice creation!

    This is useful for reactors because proton beams can heat water pools internally, while relying on heated surfaces can produce steam explosions and instabilities in the boiling chamber.
