The Alchemical Construct is a component block added by Thaumcraft 4. It is used in arcane crafting as well as creating multiblock structures such as the Thaumatorium and Advanced Alchemical Furnace.
In the future you will definitely need to have ready access to multiple different kinds of aspects - not just primal aspects drawn from your wand.
Using basic alchemical principles you have devised a way to break down objects and convert them into essentia.
The first step in this process requires an Alchemical Furnace. The alchemical furnace works much like a normal furnace by burning coal to produce heat, but instead of smelting ore into metal, it breaks down objects into a slurry of raw, unprocessed essentia.
The next step in the process is to take the essentia slurry and distill it using an Arcane Alembic.
To work, arcane alembics need to be placed on top of an alchemical furnace. The essentia slurry will slowly be drawn into the alembic and the individual aspected essentia separated out.
If the alchemical furnace is being powered by alumentum, this distillation process is much faster.
You can stack up to 5 different alembics on top of a single furnace.
The essentia can then be extracted out of an alembic using phials.
