Yes, it can make lava. You monster.
The Magma Crucible is one of the Machines added by Thermal Expansion. It uses Redstone Flux to melt down solid materials into fluids. This often takes a large amount of energy. The Machine is required to create most of the fluids in Thermal Foundation.
When working at maximum speed, the Magma Crucible consumes 400 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 Magma Crucible's work when its power supply cuts short.
The different sides of the Magma Crucible 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 Magma Crucible. This is used for handling input and output with ducts/pipes/conduits/tubes, other Machines and other types of inventories and/or fluid tanks.
|Item input||Blue||Top, Bottom|
|Fluid output||Orange||Left, Right, Back|
|Any item input/output*||(colorless)||(not set)|
|Redstone Flux input||-||(any side)|
The following table lists the recipes that the Magma Crucible can perform. Recipes that use less energy also take less time.
