Filling buckets by hand is hard work.
The Fluid Transposer is one of the Machines added by Thermal Expansion. It uses Redstone Flux to fill items like Buckets or Portable Tanks with fluids, or to drain fluids from them. It can also be used to infuse certain items with fluids. The Machine can essentially be seen as a glorified 'bucket filler'.
When working at maximum speed, the Fluid Transposer consumes 40 RF per tick. When its internal energy storage is starting to deplete, the Machine will slow down and use less power. This prevents sudden interruptions of the Fluid Transposer's work when its power supply cuts short.
The different sides of the Fluid Transposer correspond to different color-coded slots and tanks in its GUI. These sides can be identified by color-coded openings in the sides of the Fluid Transposer. This is used for handling input and output with ducts/pipes/conduits/tubes, other Machines and other types of inventories and/or fluid tanks.
If the Integrated Servo Mechanism Augment is installed, output items and fluids are automatically ejected from the corresponding sides of the Fluid Transposer, evenly divided between the available outputs.
|Item output||Red||Left, Right, Back|
|Any item/fluid output||Orange||(not set)|
|Any item input/output*||(colorless)||(not set)|
|Redstone Flux input||-||(any side)|
The Fluid Transposer can fill or empty any registered fluid container that has a set fluid amount, and can only be either completely full or empty. This includes things like Buckets, Bottles, Cans, Capsules and Cells.
For Buckets, this always takes 800 RF. For any other fluid container types, this takes 1600 RF.
The Machine also works with any item that can contain a variable amount of fluid, like Portable Tanks or soaked Sponges. When the Fluid Transposer is working at maximum speed (without Processing Speed Augments), fluids are moved to or from these items at 40 mB per tick.
Lastly, the Fluid Transposer has some unique recipes of its own. The following table lists these recipes. Recipes that use less energy also take less time.
