- This page is about the Arcane Bellows added by Thaumcraft 4. For other uses, see Arcane Bellows.
The Arcane Bellows is a block added by Thaumcraft 4. When placed adjacent to a Furnace, Infernal Furnace, or Alchemical Furnace, it will boost smelting speed, enabling more items to be burnt with one unit of solid fuel. When attached to an Infernal Furnace it will also increase the likelihood of producing meat nuggets.
The Arcane Bellows performs much the same function as its mundane counterpart, the only difference is that it happily pumps away by itself sending forth a stream of never-ending air.
Attaching it to an Infernal Furnace has shown some interesting results. The elemental infused air not only stokes the flames increasing its smelting speed, but causes them to burn much purer, resulting in a reduction of flux generated and increasing the chance of creating bonus nuggets and other materials when smelting.
They can also be attached to normal or alchemical furnaces to increase their speed.
It is also possible to attach them to crucibles to reduce the time it takes for their water to boil.
Bellows can be deactivated by applying a redstone signal.
You are confident more uses will reveal themselves eventually.
