Distillation Tower (GregTech 6)
- This page is about the the Distillation Tower added by GregTech 6. For other uses, see .
The Distillation Tower is a 3x3x9 multiblock machine added by GregTech 6 used to refine Oil into various products. It is required to produce the Plastic needed for crafting Circuit Plates and Circuit Boards.

Usage[edit | edit source]
The Distillation Tower is constructed with one 3x3 layer of Heat Acceptors (9) beneath eight 3x3 layers of Distillation Tower Parts (71). The controller replaces one of the side-center blocks on the lowest level of Tower Parts, and must be facing outwards. When the tower is correctly formed, a column of eight output ports will appear on the Tower Parts on the side opposite the controller. The bottom output port will output all items produced by the tower. Each other output port will output a single liquid. Crude oil may only be pumped in to any Tower Part block on the lowest layer of parts.
The Tower must be powered by 64-256 HU/t supplied to the Heat Acceptors on its lowest layer. If an Automatic Machine Switch is installed on the Tower's controller block, it will control any applicable HU generators adjacent to the Heat Acceptors; Electric Heaters will be switched on and off as needed, and Gas Burning Boxes will be switched off when the Tower runs out of crude oil to process.
Various forms of crude oil will produce refined fuels and byproducts in different ratios as listed in this table:
|Input||Energy Cost||Paraffin Wax||Asphalt||Plastic Pulp||Lubricant||Petrol||Propane||Butane||Fuel Oil||Diesel||Kerosene|
|Very Heavy Oil||32,768||90%||90%||90%||100||35||10||10||70||45||40|
