The Centrifugal Extractor is a machine from IndustrialCraft 2 Classic. It is an upgraded version of the Extractor that uses the 'heat-up' mechanic of the Induction Furnace.

Recipe[edit | edit source]

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Centrifugal Extractor consumes EU to extract more valuable products from more mundane components. It uses the same recipe list as the IndustrialCraft 2 Extractor. It accepts up to 128EU/t, but only consumes up to 16EU/t when active.

Like the Induction Furnace, the Centrifugal Extractor must spin up before it can be used efficiently. A Centrifugal Extractor takes 10,000 ticks (8 minutes 20 seconds) to reach full speed. The Extractor will gain speed when it is actively grinding items, or when it is fed a Redstone signal, and it will lose speed when neither of these are present. Speed is lost at 4x the rate it can be gained. A 0% speed Extractor requires 4000 ticks to process an item, however a 100% speed Extractor requires 12 ticks to process an item. While a Centrifugal Extractor is spinning up (with no items to compress), it consumes 1 EU/t. However, once an item is inserted, its energy consumption increases to 16 EU/t. By these numbers, a heavily overclocked conventional Extractor can operate more quickly than a Centrifugal Extractor, but will consume enormous amounts of energy to do so.

The Centrifugal Extractor's GUI contains 1 Input slot, 1 Battery slot, 2 Output slots, and 2 Upgrade slots. It will accept all IC2C upgrades except the Overclocker Upgrade.
