The Soil Centrifuge is a module that extracts resources from Soil collected via the Terrain Tool.
- Power Consumption Rate: 4 Units/s
The following table lists the resources that can be extracted from a full Soil Centrifuge tank (two Canisters of soil):
- The Soil Centrifuge is a good source for Scrap. Using the centrifuge to obtain 6 Clay, smelting them into Ceramic with the Smelting Furnace and creating 6 Drill Mod 1. Each Drill Mod 1 is worth 0.5 Scrap, with the net result of 3 Scrap per full Soil Centrifuge tank.
- Before the Crafting Update, the Soil Centrifuge could create any resource, but a piece of it had to be provided first (presumably to give incentive to players to travel to other planets, rather than just synthesizing resources on the starting planet). The soil storage tank could also hold more than two canisters of soil but it could not be used until the first two full canisters were synthesized.
- It was previously called the Mineral Extractor.
