Manufacturing
  • Local Manufacturing is key to long-term planetary settlement
requirements
Requirements
  • Steel Processing 400kg/day 1500K
  • Aluminum Processing 25kg/day 1000K
  • Glass Processing 200kg/day 1200K-1400K
  • Manufactured Products as needed for construction(i.e. Structural, wire,…)
  • Dual use or Flexible equipment used where possible
glass process
Glass Process
  • Floated on Tin, Pilkington Process, 2mx4m float tray, made from local brick, covered to protect from dust
  • Cooled using CO2 in Lehr, 2mx2m, made from local brick. Rollers imported.
  • Cut into 1m x 1mx5mm glass panels for transport and further cutting.
  • Located Outdoors
lcc steel process
LCC Steel Process
  • Low Carbon Content (LCC) Steel is better for low temperature application
  • All products made of 6mm Sheet or cast directly
  • Provision for Rolling ‘Strip’ depending on size of Steel Batch
  • Located Outdoors
strip caster
Strip Caster
  • 6mm thick x2m wide
  • Can be outdoors though dust may require enclosed(not pressurized) areas
  • Pickling could also be done in enclosed area to ensure recovery of acids/caustics.
typical strip casting process
Typical Strip Casting Process
  • All products made of 6mm Sheet or cast directly
  • Provision for Rolling ‘Strip’ depending on size of Steel Batch
slab caster
Slab Caster
  • For Context
  • Not practical for amount of steel manufactured unless larger sections needed(i.e. rails)
  • Batch Casting or Direct Chill better alternative
aluminum process
Aluminum Process
  • Strip Casting possible using same process as Steel
  • Direct Chill is also possible for Aluminum, not sure for Steel.
aluminum direct chill casting
Aluminum Direct Chill Casting
  • Ingots Poured Vertically
  • Continuous Quench with Water or CO2
  • Once Mold is full, valve shuts, and ingot is rotated and pressed out by ram.
  • Other material could use this process(i.e steel)
annealing furnace
Annealing Furnace
  • Located Outdoors
  • Capable of 1000K Temperatures
  • Capable of Controlled Cooling(using CO2)
  • Approximately 5mx1mx1m made from local Refractory
  • Heat Exchanger Imported(1m3, 100kg)
  • Uses Steam from Nuclear Reactor for Controlled Heating
material transport
Material Transport
  • Need Glass, Steel, and Al transported from Refining to Manufacturing Airlock
  • Need Steel Rolls transported to Annealing Oven
  • Need Finished Products transported from Manufacturing Airlock to Area of Use
  • Rover or Automated Robot Carrier could easily be programmed to perform this function.
products processing indoors
Products Processing (Indoors)
