This kit is used to crush ice into liquids and/or gases. The Ice Crusher has two outputs at the back, which can be connected to Pipes (yellow) and Liquid Pipe (blue) to extract the products. The top output is for Gas outputs, and the bottom output is for Liquids. 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)
Ice (Nitrice) produces Nitrogen and Nitrous_Oxide gas (90% Nitrogen, 10% Nitrous Oxide)

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 Pipe and piping the Nitrogen out with a pump or an Active Vent to avoid blocking the ice crusher. 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.

  • 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.
  • Has an internal capacity of 200L.
  • Will not explode from overpressure of its internal capacity, but will stop crushing ice and flash an error if its internal pressure exceeds 125 MPa. It will resume crushing once its internal pressure drops below approximately 121 MPa.
  • Outputs gas at a maximum rate of 9.231 MPa per tick into a single pipe segment (exactly 20 MPa into 6 pipe segments every 13 ticks), stopping once its internal pressure equals the pressure of the output port. This drops its internal pressure by 0.4615 MPa per tick.
  • Can generate gas from crushing ice substantially faster than its maximum gas output rate, at a rate of approximately 5 MPa to its internal capacity per tick spent crushing ice.
