The Pulverizer is one of the Machines added by Thermal Expansion. It uses Redstone Flux to smash things. The Machine is commonly used to process Ore blocks more efficiently than smelting them directly, but it also has many other helpful recipes.


Shaped Crafting


When working at maximum speed, the Pulverizer 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 Pulverizer's work when its power supply cuts short.


1. Input Slot
Items placed in this slot are smashed by the Pulverizer.
2. Primary Output Slots
Fully processed items end up in these two slots.
3. Secondary Output Slot
Possible byproducts of items being smashed end up in this slot.
4. 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 Pulverizer's recipes.
5. Power Gauge
Displays how fast the Pulverizer is working in relation to its maximum speed.
6. Energy Gauge
Displays how much Redstone Flux is currently stored in the Pulverizer.
7. Charging Slot
Items that store Redstone Flux that are placed here are discharged by the Pulverizer to charge itself.
8. Energy Tab
Displays how much power the Pulverizer uses, and how much Redstone Flux is currently stored in it.
9. Information Tab
Displays a bit of information about the Pulverizer.
10. Tutorial Tab
Explains various things about the Pulverizer and the other tabs in the GUI.
11. Augmentation Tab
Allows installing Augments in the Machine.
12. Security Tab
Allows setting who is allowed to access the Pulverizer. Only available if a Signalum Security Lock is installed.
13. Redstone Control Tab
Allows setting how the Pulverizer responds to Redstone signals. Only available if the Integrated Redstone Circuit Augment is installed.
14. Configuration Tab
Allows configuring the input/output behavior of the sides of the Pulverizer. Only available if the Integrated Modular Framework Augment is installed.
15. Player Inventory
The inventory and hotbar of the player that is accessing the Pulverizer.


The different sides of the Pulverizer correspond to different color-coded slots in its GUI. These sides can be identified by color-coded openings in the sides of the Pulverizer. This is used for handling input and output with ducts/pipes/conduits/tubes, other Machines and other types of inventories.

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

If the Integrated Servo Mechanism Augment is installed, output items are automatically ejected from the corresponding sides of the Pulverizer, evenly divided between the available outputs.

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

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


The following tables list the recipes that the Pulverizer can perform. Recipes that use less energy also take less time.
If the output items of a recipe have multiple versions added by different mods (Pulverized Tin for example), and there are versions added by Thermal Foundation or Thermal Expansion, those versions will usually be preferred.

*: May be changed or disabled in the config.
**: Chance is configurable per Wool color. Most colors are set to 5% by default, except white, brown, green and black, which are set to 0%.
