Every coolant has a thermal capacity (TC), which specifies for how long a certain amount of it is effective before being consumed, and a coolant factor, which specifies how effective it is.
|Fluid||Thermal capacity (1,000 mB)||Coolant factor|
|Gelid Cryotheum||3,000,000 TC||60%|
|Crushed Ice (Forestry)||1,500,000 TC||40%|
|Distilled Water (IndustrialCraft²)||300,000 TC||30%|
|Coolant (IndustrialCraft²)||2,000,000 TC||50%|
