PLANTS do both scrubing CO2 and making Oxygen. How many plants would it take to do the same job as these alternatives? How about a comparison video? I'm sure many other fans like me would like to know.

I thought he was going to say the headphones button Is so cool because they pause the music and turn up the outside noise to hear people better, not just to pause music like my $40cdn Poms that are a knockoff of Airbuds that are a knockoff of airpods lol but good enough.

Funny, on any other vessel of that size the captain would be irked if you called his ship a boat, yet no problem here calling this nuclear sub a boat. Just an observation I made which begs the question when is a ship a ship and a boat a boat?

Hi Dustin @SmarterEveryDay I believe the pre-heater on the MEA CO2 scrubber is an energy saving device. When the CO2 is compressed it increases in temperature. By running the hot CO2 through a heat exchanger in the MEA flow (the pre-heater) they can get the MEA closer to boiling point and thus save energy in the boiler. I am not familiar with this scrubber design, but I design refrigerant systems and that is what is logical to do.

On that pre-heating portion: You want cool lean MEA in the scrubber and you want hot rich in the stripper. So you could either put a refrigerator or radiator behind the stripper and waste all the heat you put into the MEA or you can use a heat exchanger. With a heat exchanger you transfer the hear from the rich MEA you want to cool down into the lean MEA you want to heat up. This reduces the need to put additional energy into the system for heating and cooling.

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.

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.

Hah. so Electrolysis was the one he talked about. and...I hadn't strongly considered the chlorine gas but..i had sort of mentally touched on "probably would purify it first, cause...sea water has fish poo and stuff. sooo...partial credit.
