Alchemical Furnace is a block added by the Thaumcraft 4 mod. This machine can smelt solid items and blocks to liquid Essentia in the amount contained in them. To start the process, supply the machine with solid fuel or Alumentum (which increases the speed at which machine works) and place the items to be smelted in the top slot. The machine has Essentia buffer for 32 of Essentia of any types, and will try to empty it in Arcane Alembics above. The machine can see up to 5 Arcane Alembics on top of it, and will try to fill them the folowing way: the machine checks whether there is an alembic with this essentia type and it is not full, if such alembics found, the machine will place essentia in the lowest of them. If such alembics are not found, the machine will try to place essentia in the lowest empty alembic. Attaching Arcane Bellows to the sides increase the speed of draining the buffer.
Thaumcraft 4 Research Notes
Research aspects in this block
"In the future you will definitely need to have ready access to multiple different kinds of aspects - not just primal aspects drawn from your wand.
Using basic alchemical principles you have devised a way to break down objects and convert them into essentia.
The first step in this process requires an Alchemical Furnace. The alchemical furnace works much like a normal furnace by burning coal to produce heat, but instead of smelting ore into metal, it breaks down objects into a slurry of raw, unprocessed essentia.
The next step in the process is to take the essentia slurry and distill it using an Arcane Alembic.
To work, arcane alembics need to be placed on top of an alchemical furnace. The essentia slurry will slowly be drawn into the alembic and the individual aspected essentia separated out.
If the alchemical furnace is being powered by alumentum, this distillation process is much faster.
You can stack up to 5 different alembics on top of a single furnace.
The essentia can then be extracted out of an alembic using phials."
