Description[edit]

The Advanced Furnace is used to create advanced alloys, but can be used to create basic alloys as well. It lends itself to automation. The Maximum pressure for the furnace is 60 MPa before the furnace will,in short order, explode. Adding Hydrocarbons, IE coal, will increase the pressure. Contains two embedded volume pumps to control flow in and out, in order to use them, the furnace must be powered, and setting both to zero will put the furnace in a state of quiescence, but the furnace will slowly lose pressure and temperature. The capacity of the furnace is in excess of 5kg of materials so using the full 500g ingots to make an alloys is possible.

Data Network Properties[edit]

These are all Data Network properties of this device.

Data Parameters[edit]

These are all parameters, that can be written to with a Logic Writer, Batch Writer, or Integrated Circuit (IC10). The outputs are listed in the order a Logic Writer's "VAR" setting cycles through them.

Parameter Name Data Type Description
On Boolean Turns the Advanced Furnace on, when set to 1. Turns it off, when set to 0.
Lock Boolean
ClearMemory Integer? Writing on this Parameter will reset the ExportCount and ImportCount values to zero.
Activate Boolean Activates the Advanced Furnace, when set to 1. Deactivates the Advanced Furnace, when set to 0. Note: This can cause a minor bug to occur. (See Bugs)
SettingOutput Float Set outlet volume pump pressure.
SettingInput Float Set inlet volume pump pressure.
Setting Float (Unknown) Affected by the Setting parameter.
Open Boolean Returns whether the Furnace is open. (0 for no, 1 for yes)

Data Outputs[edit]

These are all parameters, that can be read with a Logic Reader or a Slot Reader. The outputs are listed in the order a Logic Reader's "VAR" setting cycles through them.

Output Name Data Type Description
Maximum Float
Lock Boolean
ImportCount Integer Incremented each time an item stack enter by the Import slot
ExportCount Integer Incremented each time an item stack exit by the Export Slot
Error Boolean
Activate Boolean 1 if empty, 0 if something is inside the Furnace. When set to 0 The player can use the lever to clear the Furnace
Temperature Float Returns the temperature in the Furnace in kelvin.
SettingOutput Float Set outlet volume pump pressure.
SettingInput Float Set inlet volume pump pressure.
Setting Float (Unknown) Affected by the Setting parameter.

Usage[edit]

While it is possible to operate the advanced furnace similar to a regular furnace (add fuel, ignite, add ore), the two most common setups for advanced furnaces are:

  • fuel mixing
  • hot and cold mixing

fuel mixing[edit]

rudimentary setup for mixing H2, O2, and dilutant

In this setup, the furnace's input is connected to a gas mixer to provide fuel, and often a dilutant (used to increase the pressure without spending extra fuel). The Furnace temperature and pressure math article contains formulas useful for crafting recipes to hit temperature and pressure targets.

hot and cold mixing[edit]

This setup involves a hot tank and a cold tank of gasses, which are then mixed to achieve a target temperature and pumped in to achieve the target pressure. On most worlds maintaining a cold tank is quite easy (because the atmosphere on most worlds is below the temperature needed to smelt ore). Maintaining a hot tank is a little trickier, and either involves a lot of energy spent on Pipe Heaters, or an auxiliary furnace to combust fuel and pipe the exhaust into an insulated tank.
