Centrifugal Separator


Centrifugal separator

Spin to win!

A centrifugal separator, or centrifuge for short, is a machine that separates items into their components.

Obtaining

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

Crafting

Upgrading

A centrifugal separator is initially at the lowest tier (basic). It can be upgraded to higher tiers using upgrade kits and conversion kits.

Usage

Placement

When placed, a centrifugal separator faces the player. It can face any of the four cardinal directions, and can be rotated using a wrench.

Processing

A centrifugal separator has an input slot, four output slots and an output tank. When items are placed in the input slot, the machine will start consuming Redstone Flux to process them. Every item requires a certain amount of energy to process. When enough energy has been consumed for an item, the input is consumed and the output is placed in the output slots. Some items may have a fluid output as well, which is placed in the output tank.

The speed at which a centrifugal separator 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 centrifuge 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 a centrifugal separator through its sides. Every side of a centrifuge may correspond to its input slot, its output slots, its output tank, or certain slots/tanks at the same time.

A centrifugal separator can automatically transfer items or fluids out of any sides that directly correspond to its output slot/tank. This is called auto-output. It can also transfer items from adjacent inventories into any sides that directly correspond to its input slot. 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 centrifugal separator can automatically transfer up to 16 items and up to 1,000 mB of fluid at a time. These amounts 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.

Redstone control

A centrifugal separator may be configured to respond to redstone signals. It can be in one of three modes:

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

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

Security

A centrifugal separator can have a signalum security lock installed to restrict who can access it.

Redprints

A centrifugal separator’s configuration can be saved on a redprint to be copied to other centrifuges.

Light source

When a centrifugal separator is active, it emits a light level of 4.

Tiers

Centrifugal separators come in five tiers.

Tier Max. power usage Augment slots Max. items per auto-transfer Max. fluid per auto-transfer
Basic 20 RF/t 0 16 1,000 mB
Hardened 30 RF/t 1 16 1,000 mB
Reinforced 40 RF/t 2 28 3,000 mB
Signalum 50 RF/t 3 44 6,000 mB
Resonant 60 RF/t 4 64 10,000 mB

Augmentation

A centrifugal separator 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 centrifuge cannot be augmented.

Augments can be installed in the Augmentation tab in a centrifuge’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.
Enstabulation Apparatus Enstabulation Apparatus Centrifugal Separator A specialization that allows for a centrifugal separator to process filled morbs for mob drops and essence of knowledge. However, a centrifugal separator can only process morbs when installed.
