12/16/2012 There is currently a bug which can corrupt the world save file that is linked with this machine. Please read this postfor more details. Note that this bug only affects FTB Beta A. Other FTB packs have received a patch to resolve this bug.
FunctionEditThe Rotary Macerator accomplishes the same thing as a Macerator (grind 1 piece of ore into 2 units of Dust) but will increase its speed over time. Like the Induction Furnace, it features 2 input and 2 output slots that can process items simultaneously. If the machine is empty, it will lose speed by default. Applying a redstone current to the macerator will make it continue to use power to spin up. The default maximum processing speed is 1 item every 0.6 seconds.
This machine cannot spin faster than 7500 RPM unless you add Overclocker Upgrades. The maximum achieveable speed is 15,500 RPM.
NOTE: The Rotary Macerator's second slot is currently only used for a modifier. The modifier allows the player to create Bronze Dust by macerating 3 Copper Ore, and 1 Tin Ore (3 copper on left, tin on right) but GregTech removed that feature. However the Induction Smelter has the same feature.
Energy and StorageEdit
The Rotary Macerator can receive up to 32 EU/t, unless it is upgraded with a Transformer Upgrade. If you supply it with any more energy than low voltage (32 EU/t), the Rotary Macerator will explode!
By default, this machine will consume 3 EU/t while charging, idling, or processing items.
The Rotary Macerator is able to store 5000 EU, this is enough to process 14 ores, starting from 0 RPM. Even after losing initial power, the Rotary Macerator continues to work until its RPM reaches 0.
