Mercury Cells are one of the cell types in GregTech.
One of the uses of mercury cells is as an alternative to water in an Industrial Grinder. Depending on the recipe, this increases the yield of the main product to three items instead of two, or gives one full dust pile of a side product instead of one or two tiny piles. It also makes grinding Netherrack produce more gold nuggets (one per 8 Netherrack, the normal recipe needs 16). One of its more important uses is quadrupling the platinum dust output of Ferrous Ore.
