Ore Processing

Description

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

Tier 0

This is the stock minecraft Tier of directly smelting ores into ingots.

Tier 1

Basic Tier 1 Setup

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 Dusts → Smelter → 2 Ingots

Tier 2

Basic Tier 2 Setup

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.

Water → Electric PumpElectrolytic SeparatorOxygen

1 Raw Ore + OxygenPurification Chamber → 3 Clumps

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

Tier 3

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

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

Water → Electric PumpSalination PlantBrineElectrolytic SeparatorHydrogen and ChlorineChemical InfuserHydrogen Chloride

The rest is quite similar to previous tiers.

1 Raw Ore + Hydrogen ChlorideChemical Injection Chamber → 4 Shards

4 Shards + OxygenPurification Chamber → 4 Clumps

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

Tier 4

An example of Tier 4 Processing

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

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

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.
