Mekanism Ore-Processing

Jump to: navigation, search

Mekanism provides 4 tiers of systems to process ores and to obtain 2, 3, 4, or 5 ingots out of 1 ore. The complexity of the systems rises with each tier and at the higher tiers various secondary machines are required to produce consumables for the main ore-processing line.

The following page shows the layout of these systems as well as some in-game pictures and descriptions. Furthermore, all machines are only mentioned in their basic version—the advanced, elite and ultimate variants only change the amount produced.

Tier 1[edit | edit source]

The tier 1 system produces 2 ingots from 1 ore and only requires 2 machines and a power supply (e.g., via wind or Heat Generator). The scheme below shows the setup. The machines can be placed side by side to directly transfer products into the next machine and save transport pipes.

1x Ore
Enrichment Chamber
2x Dust
Energized Smelter
2x Ingot

Tier 2[edit | edit source]

The tier 2 system produces 3 ingots from 1 ore and requires 4 machines and a power supply (e.g., via wind or Heat Generator). The scheme below shows the setup. The machines can be placed side by side to directly transfer products into the next machine and save transport pipes.

The first special feature of this tier is that the Purification Chamber requires Oxygen or Flint for the conversion process. Since the required amount of flint is very large, the production and use of oxygen is the better choice. For this, the player must build a separate line for the oxygen production. The easiest way is to decompose water via Electrolytic Separator into Hydrogen and Oxygen. The water can be supplied via Electric Pump and Basic Mechanical Pipe.

1x Ore
Purification Chamber Oxygen Electrolytic Separator Water
3x Clump Hydrogen
Crusher
3x Dirty dust
Enrichment Chamber
3x "Purified" dust
Energized Smelter
3x Ingot

Tier 3[edit | edit source]

The tier 3 system produces 4 ingots from 1 ore and requires 8 machines, one multiblock structure and a power supply (e.g., via wind or Heat Generator). The scheme below shows the setup. The machines can be placed side by side to directly transfer products into the next machine and save transport pipes.

As with tier 2, this system also has a Purification Chamber which requires Oxygen or Flint for the conversion process. Since the required amount of flint is very large, the production and use of oxygen is the better choice. For this, the player must build a separate line for the oxygen production. The easiest way is to decompose water via Electrolytic Separator into Hydrogen and Oxygen. The water can be supplied via Electric Pump and Basic Mechanical Pipe.

Furthermore, in this tier the Chemical Injection Chamber requires Hydrogen Chloride or Salt for the conversion process. Since the required amount of salt is very large, the production and use of hydrogen chloride is the better choice. This can be produced by a Chemical Infuser which requires Hydrogen and Chlorine. Hydrogen can be taken from the first auxiliary production. Chlorine can be made from Brine via Thermal Evaporation Plant and Electrolytic Separator.
