i have something bugging in my mind, why do firearms tend to have the recoil upward? why no downward recoil

The preheater before the boiler is necessary to operate an efficient flash tower. If you had no preheater youd not be able to reach a steady state flash process.

Clinkers? Like the iron byproduct in burning coal? That makes a clinking sound when you stir coal in a forge/furnace. 😅 Also how do they do this in space? Is there any similarities to create oxygen on a space station.

I actually work/live on a submarine and one of the people of my crew told me to watch this video since we just installed a brand new Low Pressure Electrolyzer.

How available is MEA & Lithium Hydroxide, if plenty, surely there could be means of draining CO2 from general environment to help reduce Global warming....

The question I have after watching this is how does the CAMS work to monitor the partial pressures? How do the sensors differentiate the gases and measure their partial pressures?

too bad there's no way to effectively store the hydrogen produced during electrolysis on submarines. After spending all that energy to produce it, it would be nice to be able to store it for use as fuel or propellant

I am an ex-submariner from the 80s (SSN 678). It's amazing that so little has changed as far as O2 generation. Thanks for the video series. It brought back many memories.

Awesome video as always! The preheating stage at 23:37 with the MEA solution must be to increase the overall efficiency of the final heating stage, in a sub every space must the carefully design to ensure minimum space is occupied, taking advantage of the higher contact area of the pipes and preheating the solution during pumping to the final stage is cleaver and rises the overall efficiency of the process.

If I had to guess [prior to watching.] it's some combination of "compressed air tank storage, Rebreather style recirculation, or, my favorite option, Electrolysis based O2 production from water.
