Plasma Research (generally known as Toxins) is where scientists intricately study the properties and capabilities of plasma. They do this by superheating plasma and using it to build bombs capable of ripping giant hull breaches into the station and killing everyone. Or, they might just cause an uncontrollable plasma fire in the escape arm or release super-heated carbon dioxide in the hallways, frying people from within. Generally only bad things happen in toxins, which is what makes it such a beloved part of the station.

Don't test your bombs on the station itself unless you are a legit antagonist.

Navigating the Gasworks

General Practice

To connect a canister to a connector, simply drag it on top of the connector, then wrench it to connect. The gas will automatically start to flow through the pipes. The gas will proceed unless the valve is turned closed (red). The pipes into the combustion chambers are special--some are strictly outtake (gas will only flow towards the mixing room), and some are strictly intake (air will only flow out of the mixing room). More on them later.

To check out the contents of your canisters, use your scientist PDA's built in scanner on it. It will give you a summary of its total pressure, its contents by percentage, and its temperature.

Mixing

The T-shaped section of piping with three ports and valves in the rough center of the lab is for mixing gases together.

The T-shaped section of piping with three ports and valves just by the entrance is for mixing gases together.

The T-shaped section of piping with three ports and valves in the far left is for mixing gases together.

The T-shaped section of piping with three ports and valves in the middle is for mixing gases together.

The T-shaped section of piping with three ports and valves in the bottom right by the cooler is for mixing gases together.

The T-shaped section of piping with three ports and valves in the far left is for mixing gases together.

When you connect canisters to the ports and open the valves, the gases will mix together and equalize among all the containers, depending on the number of canisters and the proportions of gases. Mixing follows a consistent, somewhat sensible pattern, but it takes a while to learn.

For example, if you connect a canister of 100% oxygen and a canister of 100% plasma to two ports and open their valves, each canister will be 50% plasma and 50% oxygen. If you remove one canister and add a 100% plasma canister, the two canisters would have 75% plasma and 25% oxygen.

However, if, instead removing you then connect a canister of plasma to the third port and turn its associated valve, all three canisters would be 66% plasma and 33% oxygen. You would get a similar result if you originally had connected two canisters of plasma and one canister of oxygen and opened all their valves at the same time.

Heating

The combustion chambers is/are vacuum sealed room(s) where gas can be piped in, then ignited with a spark by pressing the igniter switch. The resulting hot mixture of gas can be pumped out of the chamber and into empty canisters through the adjacent outlet valves or used to heat whatever gases were feed into the chamber pipes. If the gas is a dud or the experimenting is finished, it can also be vented into space via the Combustion Vent switch.

Cooling

Disposal

Storage & Other

The storage room contains air scrubbers, a tank dispenser, and canisters of various types of gases, most notably, plasma and oxygen.

To test your bombs, use the special simulator equipment (for transfer valve bombs) or alternatively blow up something in the debris field.

How not to die horribly

  • Always wear internals.
  • Don't open any of the canisters, unless there is a tank attached.
  • Do not leave any lit welders around.
  • Move any welding fuel tanks out of the lab.
  • Don't open a valve if you don't know what it'll do.
  • If it looks like gas is leaking, use the air scrubber immediately.
