Description

Mekanism adds various tiers of ore processing for better ingot yields from raw ores.

Each tier use a specific machine to process the raw ore ( for direct ingots, dusts, clumps, shards or crystals ).Then the product is processed by the machines of the previous tiers.

Ore processing flowchart (Mekanism 9)

Tier 0

This is the stock minecraft Tier of directly smelting ores into ingots. First energy is produced for example by Heat Generator in passive mode.

1 Raw Ore → Energized Smelter → 1 Ingot


Basic Tier 0 Setup

Tier 1

New machines on this tier:

Enrichment Chamber

This tier doubles ingot yield, similar to many other mods. It uses the Enrichment Chamber, similar to Thermal Expansion's Pulverizer and IC2's Macerator.

1 Raw Ore → Enrichment Chamber → 2 DustsEnergized Smelter → 2 Ingots


Basic Tier 1 Setup

Tier 2

New machines on this tier:

Purification Chamber

Crusher

This tier triples ingot yield, like Thermal Expansion's Induction Smelter (with rich slag). It uses the Purification Chamber, Crusher and Enrichment Chamber. The Purification Chamber requires a source of Oxygen.

1 Raw Ore + OxygenPurification Chamber → 3 Clumps

3 ClumpsCrusher → 3 Dirty DustsEnrichment Chamber → 3 DustsEnergized Smelter → 3 Ingots


Oxygen Can be obtained like so:

Water → Electric PumpElectrolytic SeparatorOxygen


Hint: You can use Gas-Burning Generator to recycle Hydrogen produced by Electrolytic Separator back to energy. That saves a lot of energy.


Basic Tier 2 Setup

Tier 3

New machines on this tier:

Chemical Injection Chamber

Chemical Infuser

This tier quadruples ingot yield. It uses the Solar Evaporation Plant, Chemical Injection Chamber, Electrolytic Separator, Chemical Infuser, Purification Chamber, Electrolytic Separator, Crusher and Enrichment Chamber.


1 Raw Ore + Hydrogen ChlorideChemical Injection Chamber → 4 Shards

4 Shards + OxygenPurification Chamber → 4 Clumps

4 ClumpsCrusher → 4 Dirty DustsEnrichment Chamber → 4 DustsEnergized Smelter → 4 Ingots


The chain to make Hydrogen Chloride is self sustaining but quite involved.

Or

Hydrogen (from water electrolysis) and ChlorineChemical InfuserHydrogen Chloride

Basic Tier 3 Setup

Tier 4

New machines on this tier (plus machines used for gas crafting, see the description below).

Chemical Dissolution Chamber

Chemical Washer

Chemical Crystallizer

This tier quintuples ingot yield. It uses the Rotary Condensentrator, Chemical Dissolution Chamber, Chemical Washer, Chemical Crystalizer, Chemical Oxidizer, Solar Evaporation Plant, Chemical Injection Chamber, Electrolytic Separator, Chemical Infuser, Purification Chamber, Electrolytic Separator, Crusher and Enrichment Chamber.


1 Raw Ore + Sulfuric AcidChemical Dissolution Chamber → Ore Slurry

Ore Slurry + Water → Chemical Washer → Clean Ore SlurryChemical CrystalizerCrystals

Crystals are then put into a Tier 3 setup to be processed.


You need a chain to make Hydrogen Chloride the same as Tier 3. You also need a source of Gravel/Flint/Gunpowder.

Gunpowder + Hydrogen ChlorideChemical Injection Chamber → Sulfur

Sulfur → Chemical OxidizerSulfur Dioxide

Sulfur Dioxide + OxygenChemical InfuserSulfur Trioxide

Water → Rotary CondensentratorWater Vapor

Water Vapor + Sulfur TrioxideChemical InfuserSulfuric Acid
