The Refinery is a 3x5x3 multi-block added by Immersive Engineering. It is used to make Biodiesel.

Construction[edit | edit source]

The Refinery is relatively complicated to make. It uses:



































After it is complete, right-clicking the central Heavy Engineering Block with an Engineer's Hammer will finish the multiblock.

Pre 0.8[edit | edit source]

This information pertains to an older version of the mod.

The Refinery is relatively complicated to make. The first layer contains a 't' cross of 5 Light Engineering Blocks, 2 Heavy Engineering Blocks and 8 Steel Scaffoldings. The second layer is almost solid Sheet Metal Blocks (12 of them), but the left-most center block is a Heavy Engineering Block, but the right-most center block is a Light Engineering Block, and the very center block is air. The third and final layer is a solid layer of Sheet Metal Blocks (12 of them), except for the 3 center air blocks.

This uses 8 Steel Scaffoldings, 6 Light Engineering Blocks, 24 Sheet Metal Blocks and 3 Heavy Engineering Blocks total.

After it is fully arranged, the player must right-click the center of the front of the longer side (which should be a Heavy Engineering Block with a Light Engineering Block under it, but nothing but Air above it) with an Engineer's Hammer, then the multi-block is complete.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The front-bottom-center block is used to output Biodiesel. The two side-bottom-center blocks are used to input Plant Oil and Ethanol. Redstone Flux (RF) is input from the back-center block, and the multi-block's processes can be halted via Redstone through the "control panel", the block with the red dot.

Every tick, the Refinery consumes up to 8 mB of Plant Oil, 8 mB of Ethanol, and 10 Redstone Flux, while generating 16 mB of Biodiesel. It takes 3.125 seconds to make one bucket of Biodiesel. Put another way, the Refinery is able to produce two buckets of Biodiesel every 6.25 seconds. Since a bucket of Biodiesel burns for 6.25 seconds in a Diesel Generator, a Refinery operating at full capacity is able to sustain two Diesel Generators at once.
