The Smelter (or the Ore Refinery) is one of the Modules in Astroneer that can be made at the medium fabricator. It is used to process raw ores into usable resources. It works in a similar way to the Hydrazine Catalyzer, changing one raw resource into refined resources.
- Ore Refining: It is most commonly used to smelt Resources (Malachite and Laterite). This process costs 8 bars of Power and is capable of refining up to 4 Resources in one cycle.
Pre-Release Smelter (Automated with rails)
Hydrazine Refinery (replaced with hydrazine catalyzer)
- The smelter has gone through the most changes during its development. I currently has 4 versions and an automated Pre-release version of it, which in turn has another model.
