The Smelter (or the Ore Refinery) is one of the Modules in Astroneer. Used in early game to process raw ores into usable resources. It has a module that works similar to the smelter called as the Hydrazine Catalyzer.
- Ore Refinement: It is most commonly used to process Resources (Malachite and Laterite) into their refined version, 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, it currently has 4 versions, and an automated Pre-release version of it, which in turn also has an another model.
