MACHINE SMASH! Puny ore.
A pulverizer is a machine that crushes items. It is commonly used to process ores and other items more efficiently, and to recycle certain items.
A placed pulverizer 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.

A pulverizer is initially at the lowest tier (basic). It can be upgraded to higher tiers using upgrade kits and conversion kits.
When placed, a pulverizer faces the player. It can face any of the four cardinal directions, and can be rotated using a wrench.
When items are placed in a pulverizer’s 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 primary output slot. A secondary output may be produced when processing certain items, which is placed in the secondary output slot.
When installed, a tectonic initiator allows a pulverizer to consume tectonic petrotheum, which is stored in an added input tank.
The speed at which a pulverizer 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 pulverizer 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.
Items and fluids can enter and exit a pulverizer through its sides. Every side of a pulverizer may correspond to its input slot, one of its output slots, or certain slots at the same time. Fluids can enter a pulverizer through any side.
A pulverizer 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 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 pulverizer can automatically transfer up to 16 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.
A pulverizer may be configured to respond to redstone signals. It can be in one of three modes:
The current mode can be set using the Redstone Control tab in the machine’s GUI.
A pulverizer can have a signalum security lock installed to restrict who can access it.
A pulverizer’s configuration can be saved on a redprint to be copied to other pulverizers.
When a pulverizer is active, it emits a light level of 4.
Pulverizers come in five tiers.
|Tier||Max. power usage||Augment slots||Max. items per auto-transfer|
A pulverizer 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 pulverizer cannot be augmented.
Augments can be installed in the Augmentation tab in a pulverizer’s GUI.
|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.|
|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.|
|Destroys excess secondary products when a machine's secondary output slot/tank is full, allowing it to keep working.|
|Tectonic Initiator||Pulverizer||A specialization that allows for a pulverizer to process ores more efficiently using tectonic petrotheum. 100 mB of petrotheum is consumed per ore.|
