Steam Turbine (GregTech 6)
- This page is about the Steam Turbine from GregTech 6. For other uses, see .
The Steam Turbine is a machine added by GregTech 6. It is a converter that turns steam into rotational energy, or RU.
Steam Turbines produce at the fixed ratio of 16 RU per 48L (48mB) of steam used. They can also produce 1L of Distilled Water condensate per 200L of steam consumed, but this is voided unless there is a connected pipe or adjacent tank to auto-output into.
The Turbine will fail to operate, noisily, if given less than half the nominal steam input. It also fails to operate, noisily, if given more than twice the nominal steam input. If overloaded 100 times, the Turbine will instead fly apart, destroying itself and some of the surroundings.
The nominal Steam input is different for each variety, and is shown in the tooltip.
|Steam Turbine||steam IN (mB/t)||RU /t out|
|Ironwood / Steeleaf / Thaumium||384||128|
|Titanium / Fiery Steel||768||256|
Steam Turbines can be rotated with a Wrench, showing the helper grid, to any orientation. The RU produced can be toggled between the normal counter clockwise rotation and the negative clockwise direction with a Monkey Wrench, this is useful when attempting to combine the power with a Custom Gearbox later. They are harvested intact with a Wrench (hold left click like mining).
