Smelting ore down to usable ingots has never been this easy! Feed it whatever ore you find, set the recipe, and out comes the life-blood of any successful factory!
~ Caterina Parks's assistant Steve

The Smelter is a building used to smelt raw ores into ingots.

Overclocking[edit | edit source]

Main article: Clock speed

The Smelter can be overclocked using Power Shards. Overclocking increases the input/output speed of the Smelter at the cost of greatly increased power demand proportional to output.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • All Smelter recipes have more effective alternatives in Refineries, obtained as alternate recipes. In the late game, Smelters can be completely replaced by Refineries, at the cost of requiring a bit more space and drawing more power, but greatly increasing ingot yield (except for Aluminum).
