Stackable Yes (64)

The Induction Furnace is an advanced version of the Electro Furnace. It has the ability to process 2 stacks of items simultaneously. Doing so will also save 50% of the energy that would have been used had every stack been smelted by itself.

Another feature of the Induction Furnace is its ability to build up heat. At higher heat levels, the Furnace both smelts faster, and uses less energy per smelting action.

Recipe


Usage


Please note the above GUI is not correct. The smeltable items are put into the two top slots, and then the Furnace is supplied with EU. Note that the furnace can accept both Low Voltage and Medium Voltage (up to 128 EU/t). The processed items appear in the two rightmost slots.

During its operation, the Furnace will build up heat, up to 100%. When idle, the heat will slowly dissipate back to 0%. It is possible to keep the heat from dissipating by providing a Redstone signal to the Furnace. In that case, the Furnace will consume a constant of 1 EU/t when idle to maintain the heat.

Energy

EU
Input 6,000 (0% heat), 208 (100% heat) (16 EU/t)
Output -
Storage 10,000

Maximum input: 128 EU/t before exploding

As well as using EU, the Induction furnace creates a small amount of heat by compressing items as well, at pressure approaching 60,000 Gibbl!

†Other Wood Items = Any block with its material set to "Wood" (includes blocks added by other mods if material defined properly). Includes all other items that can be burned in a regular Furnace, see Smelting for a complete list.
‡Assuming the smelting of 2 items simultaneously, divide by 2 if you are only smelting one item. For values < 2 keep in mind that you will actually have 2 partially finished units.
††Lava buckets are worth 10% of their value (2000) inside Iron Furnaces and Generators.
