The Smeltery Controller is a machine added by Tinkers' Construct. Made from Seared Brick, it provides the interface for the Smeltery multiblock structure.

Each smeltery must have one and only one Smeltery Controller. It can be placed anywhere but the floor of the smeltery, which must be a 3x3 grid of Seared Bricks (it's not so neccessary to always build 3x3 floor, you can build 1x1 floor if you don't have enough seared bricks, or even 5x5 floor to smelt large amounts of ore). The Smeltery Controller checks for the presence of a properly constructed smeltery, and once completed, it allows the smeltery to be accessed via a right click. From its GUI, the player can insert materials to be smelted and see how much material and Lava remains in the smeltery. The items can be loaded through pipes or Hopper

Usage[edit]

  • The left most grid is for placing smeltable items into the smeltery, such as ores or ingots. The amount of items that can be held depends on how tall (or wide) the smeltery is.
  • The middle gauge shows how molten liquid is in the smeltery. Different liquids can exist in the smeltery at the same time. The taller the smeltery the greater its capacity.
  • The right meter shows how much lava is currently (you can use Blazing Pyrotheum to melt ores faster) in the smeltery. If using multiple Seared Tanks it may not always calculate the available lava correctly.
