Crucible of Souls is another type of mob grinder, which slays hostile mobs to create raw Essentia from them, and therefore leaves neither loot nor XP. Liquid Essentia harvested by this machine can be pumped out from the sides. As the essentia is only produced as the mob dies, it is recommended to lower mobs' health to minimum by other ways, so the machine can instantly kill them and produce essentia. The machine also creates Flux during work, so it should be taken care of. The easiest way of doing this is to automating a Shovel of the Purifier with Autonomous Activator near the working machine.

Research aspects in this block
"You have discovered a way to take advantage of a previously untapped source of essentia - that of living creatures. Infusing an alchemical furnace with various occult reagents and precise quantities of essentia, will create a crucible of souls, a devise that will seek out the nearest living creature and slowly drain their life force, retrieving essentia at the final blow. This comes at the cost of the normal loot the creature would drop. This essentia can then be piped out of any face except the top via essentia tubes.
The Crucible of Souls is very unstable, and has a high probability of converting some of the essentia to flux or breaking it down into its component parts. You should make preparations to dispose of this flux before it causes a problem.
You have managed to install a basic safeguard so the device will not attack humans, but keep your pets at a safe distance. Magical golems should also be ignored by the device."
