Going to be getting to Nuclear power soon in my factory and while I've done it before, I haven't tried the Kovarex Enrichment yet. I'm not good with circuit networks, and it looks like I'll need to use some of it to get it working correctly.

So is there anyone who can supply me with a good blueprint? Showing 1 - 15 of 19 comments. Tossi View Profile View Posts. I haven't played factorio in a while but as far as I remember it doesn't need circuits. Originally posted by Tossi :. The easy way without circuits is to have a belt with one side rare and one side normal ore and put a splitter that prioritizes one output.

Use that output for kovarex and the other for the other things. And feed the output of the kovarex back before the priority splitter so it goes through the splitter again and put a priority input for that so the kovarex output gets emptied first. Also don't forget to use a filter inserters to get the output from the kovarex to have the same ores on the same sides on the belt as the input.

It makes it very easy to increase the amount of centrifuges doing the kovarex process. The only downside or maybe an unintended upside is that it stores a few extra ores but that should not be a problem once the process starts going.

A single centrifuge running Kovarex will produce more than enough for a sizeable reactor. I'd also recommend to try and do it yourself. You can make a really simple Kovarex loop by using a normal inserter to output from enrichment centrifuges, and immediately after it place one or two fast inserters to put stuff back in.Privacy Terms.

Auto-start nuclear fuel loading This board is to show, discuss and archive useful combinator- and logic-creations. Smart triggering, counters and sensors, useful circuitry, switching as an artcomputers. Please provide if possible always a blueprint of your creation.

Only load one fuel cell at a time. Only load fuel when needed, that is when steam is low. Last week I accidentally ran out of nuclear fuel cells its a long story. Basic idea: count fuel loaded and unloaded. On start, both counts are zero. Load in one cell; after five minutes, the used fuel is unloaded, and both counts are one. Each time the counts are equal, make another fuel cell available to load.

Inserter 1 takes the used fuel out of the reactor; it is connected to an arithmetic combinator to count the number of used fuel cells removed from the reactor. It isn't limited or disabled: Inserter 1. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. This gives me a green light when all reactors have fuel ready to insert.

This gives me a second green light when it's time to make more steam. Adjust the amount to your steam tank size. The spend fuel cell from the master reactor is only removed if a every reactor has fuel and b more steam is needed. The system is vulnerable to power loss. I think you can use burner inserters safely. A single tank will last hours or days when it only has to power a few inserters.In other languages:.

Uranium processing is the only way to use uranium ore and the first source of uranium and uranium that is available to the player. The process has a Unlike all other crafting processes in the game, uranium processing creates U and U based on probability, rather than in guaranteed deterministic amounts.

Additionally, the Kovarex process requires a bulk stockpile of 40 units of the rare uranium isotope to initiate in a single centrifuge. Therefore, planning uranium mining and processing for the Kovarex process takes certain considerations not encountered elsewhere in the game.

Note that running this many cycles requires mining 57, uranium ore, a non-trivial task. Some further example confidence levels that may be of interest to players are given in the table below.

This page was last edited on 29 Julyat In other languages:. Uranium is, along with uraniumone of the refined products of uranium ore. It is used in the production of nuclear fuels and the atomic bomb. Uranium is produced through uranium processing in a centrifugeor through the Kovarex enrichment process.

Uranium is much rarer than its counterpart, uranium A centrifuge processing uranium ore will produce roughly 1 unit of uranium for every units of uranium, which requires about units of uranium ore, making it one of most expensive products in the game. Once 40 units have been amassed, it can be generated much more quickly through the Kovarex process.

Since you wait for the 40 uranium to move twice, it might take a while. Acutally i dont see the need for more than one enrichtment plant. Last edited by MisterSpock ; 1 May, am.

Qlimax View Profile View Posts. I'm just winging it without knowing anything. I need more research though apparently. The downtime is around 5 seconds. Originally posted by impetus maximus :.

Yeah, I am lazy :D. Originally posted by lothos :. Originally posted by KatherineOfSky :.In other languages:. The uranium fuel cell can be burned in a nuclear reactor to produce heat, resulting in a used up uranium fuel cell. As fuel cells are a nuclear fuel source, they are treated differently from other types of fuel and cannot be used in other burner devices or in vehicles. A fuel cell can run a single nuclear reactor for seconds.

Unlike with steam power, a uranium fuel cell will continue to burn no matter the power draw, so any heat energy not consumed is wasted. From Official Factorio Wiki.
