Fluid Transposer

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'.


Shaped Crafting


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.


1. Input Slot
Items placed in this slot are to be filled, infused or drained by the Fluid Transposer.
2. Processing Slot
Items cannot be manually placed in this slot. When starting to process an item, the Fluid Transposer moves it from the input slot to this slot. It then remains here until it is completely full, infused or empty. After that, the item is moved to the output slot, if possible.
3. Fill/Empty Toggle Button
This button can be clicked to set the Fluid Transposer to fill/infuse items with fluids or to drain fluids from items.
4. Output Slot
Fully processed items end up in this slot.
5. Fluid Tank
When filling/infusing items with fluids, this tank provides the fluids to use. When instead draining fluids from items, those fluids are moved to this tank.
6. Progress Arrow
Displays the progress of the item currently being processed. If Not Enough Items is installed, the arrow can be clicked to look up the Fluid Transposer's recipes.
7. Power Gauge
Displays how fast the Fluid Transposer is working in relation to its maximum speed.
8. Energy Gauge
Displays how much Redstone Flux is currently stored in the Fluid Transposer.
9. Charging Slot
Items that store Redstone Flux that are placed here are discharged by the Fluid Transposer to charge itself.
10. Energy Tab
Displays how much power the Fluid Transposer uses, and how much Redstone Flux is currently stored in it.
11. Information Tab
Displays a bit of information about the Fluid Transposer.
12. Tutorial Tab
Explains various things about the Fluid Transposer and the other tabs in the GUI.
13. Augmentation Tab
Allows installing Augments in the Machine.
14. Security Tab
Allows setting who is allowed to access the Fluid Transposer. Only available if a Signalum Security Lock is installed.
15. Redstone Control Tab
Allows setting how the Fluid Transposer responds to Redstone signals. Only available if the Integrated Redstone Circuit Augment is installed.
16. Configuration Tab
Allows configuring the input/output behavior of the sides of the Fluid Transposer. Only available if the Integrated Modular Framework Augment is installed.
17. Player Inventory
The inventory and hotbar of the player that is accessing the Fluid Transposer.


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 Modular Framework Augment is installed, this feature of the Fluid Transposer can be configured. Some things can be inserted from any side.

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.

If the Integrated Hopper Apparatus Augment is installed, input items are automatically pulled into the Fluid Transposer from adjacent inventories at the corresponding sides.

Type Color Default Sides
Item/fluid input Blue Top
Item output Red Left, Right, Back
Fluid output Yellow Bottom
Any item/fluid output Orange (not set)
Any item input/output* (colorless) (not set)
Redstone Flux input - (any side)
*: Cannot be automatically ejected from.


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.

*: May be changed or disabled in the config.
**: Disabled by default.
