Description[edit]

Used to crush ice into liquids and/or gases.

The Ice Crushed has two outputs at the back, which can be connected to Pipes (yellow) and Liquid Pipes (blue) to extract the products. Either pipe can be used for Liquid or Gas outputs.

Different kinds of Ice can be crushed:

Ice (Water) produces liquid Water and Nitrogen gas (80% water, 20% nitrogen)
Ice (Oxite) produces Oxygen and Nitrogen gas (90% Oxygen, 10% nitrogen)
Ice (Volatiles) produces Hydrogen gas (100% Hydrogen)

Refilling Water Bottles Early Game[edit]

The Ice Crusher can be used to get drinkable water early on, by connecting it to a Water Bottle Filler using Liquid Pipes. This doesn't require connecting gas pipes, the Nitrogen byproduct will simply be released into the surrounding environment. Note however that if done inside, this could lead to pressure accumulating over time, which could be dangerous if not eventually upgraded to a more robust gas handling system.

Notes[edit]

  • It can be safely used in higher temperature environments if the ice is transferred instantly into the crusher from the mining belt.
  • When using it for crushing Ice (Water), 20% Nitrogen gas is still produced, and care must be taken to avoid overpressurization over time.
  • It is not insulated, so the gases and/or liquids it contains will equalize temperature with the environment.
  • Must be kept turned on to release the liquids and/or gases it contains.
