Induction Smelter


Induction smelter

Will absolutely not cook food.

An induction smelter, or smelter for short, is a machine that smelts items together at high temperatures. Despite the name, the machine cannot be used for smelting.

Obtaining

A placed induction smelter can be instantly picked up by dismantling it with a crescent hammer. Its configuration is preserved in the item. It can also be mined using a pickaxe, though this can be much slower.

Crafting

Upgrading

An induction smelter is initially at the lowest tier (basic). It can be upgraded to higher tiers using upgrade kits and conversion kits.

Usage

Placement

When placed, an induction smelter faces the player. It can face any of the four cardinal directions, and can be rotated using a crescent hammer or similar.

Processing

An induction smelter has two input slots. When combinations of items are placed in these slots, the machine will start consuming Redstone Flux to process them. Every item combination requires a certain amount of energy to process. When enough energy has been consumed for an item combination, the input is consumed and the output is placed in the primary output slot. A secondary output may be produced when processing certain items, which is placed in the secondary output slot.

When installed, a pyro-concentrator allows an induction smelter to consume blazing pyrotheum, which is stored in an added input tank.

The speed at which an induction smelter processes items depends on how much energy it can use per tick. This in turn depends on how much power is being supplied, and on the machine’s maximum power usage. A basic smelter has a maximum power usage of 20 RF/t. This can be increased by upgrading the machine to a higher tier, and by installing certain augments.

Input and output

Items and fluids can enter and exit an induction smelter through its sides. Every side of a smelter may correspond to one of its input slots (and possibly its input tank), one of its output slots, or certain slots/tanks at the same time.

An induction smelter can automatically transfer items out of any sides that directly correspond to one of its output slots. This is called auto-output. It can also transfer items from adjacent inventories into any sides that directly correspond to one of its input slots. This is called auto-input. Auto-output and auto-input occur whenever the machine finishes processing an item, or every 32 ticks (1.6 seconds) if the machine is inactive.

A basic induction smelter can automatically transfer up to 8 items at a time. This amount can be increased by upgrading the machine to a higher tier.

Which sides correspond to which slots/tanks and whether auto-output and auto-input are enabled can be configured using the Configuration tab in the machine’s GUI.

One of an induction smelter’s input slots can be locked to only accept metallurgical fluxes: sand, soul sand, rich slag or cinnabar. These items are commonly used in smelter recipes. The slot is locked by default.

Redstone control

An induction smelter may be configured to respond to redstone signals. It can be in one of three modes:

Ignored
Redstone control is disabled. The smelter works whenever possible. This is the default mode.
Low
The smelter works when not powered. When powered, it stops working.
High
The smelter only works when powered.

The current mode can be set using the Redstone Control tab in the machine’s GUI.

When an induction smelter must stop working due to a redstone signal and is still processing an item, it will finish processing that item before stopping.

Security

An induction smelter can have a signalum security lock installed to restrict who can access it.

Redprints

An induction smelter’s configuration can be saved on a redprint to be copied to other induction smelters.

Light source

When an induction smelter is active, it emits a light level of 14.

Tiers

Induction smelters come in six tiers.

Tier Max. power usage Augment slots Max. items per auto-transfer
Basic 20 RF/t 0 8
Hardened 30 RF/t 1 16
Reinforced 40 RF/t 2 28
Signalum 50 RF/t 3 44
Resonant / Creative 60 RF/t 4 64

Augmentation

An induction smelter can have augments installed to improve certain properties or to change how it works. The amount of augments that can be installed depends on the machine’s tier. A basic smelter cannot be augmented.

Augments can be installed in the Augmentation tab in a smelter’s GUI.

Augment Installable in Description
Auxiliary Reception Coil Auxiliary Reception Coil Any machine Increases a machine's maximum power usage (speed). However, also increases the amount of energy required per operation. Can be installed multiple times.
Auxiliary Sieve Auxiliary Sieve Machines with
secondary products
Increases the chances of a machine producing a secondary product. However, also increases the amount of energy required per operation. Can be installed multiple times.
Nullification Chamber Nullification Chamber Machines with
secondary products
Destroys excess secondary products when a machine's secondary output slot/tank is full, allowing it to keep working.
Metallurgical Recovery Metallurgical Recovery Induction Smelter Provides a chance for an induction smelter to not consume metallurgical fluxes (such as sand and rich slag). However, also increases the amount of energy required per operation. Can be installed multiple times.
Pyro-Concentrator Pyro-Concentrator Induction Smelter A specialization that allows for an induction smelter to process ores more efficiently using blazing pyrotheum. 100 mB of pyrotheum is consumed per ore.
