PneumaticCraft Wiki – Charging Station & pneumatic items

2013-06-16_20.16.32The Charging Station is a machine in which pneumatic items can be charged (or discharged). The interaction between the Charging Station and pneumatic items is the same as for the interaction between tubes/machines: Differences in pressures are tried to equalize. This means that you’ll need a highly pressurized Charging Station to charge items to a high pressure.

Air Canister
The Air Canister is the battery for each of the pneumatic machines listed below. It also can be used as stand-alone battery. It can be charged and discharged in a Charging Station. The Air Canister (and all items crafted with the Air Canister) has a volume of 1500mL and can be charged to 10 bar (it won’t explode). When you craft anything with an Air Canister in it, it will retain it’s pressure.

Ingredients used:
-1x Pressure Tube
-4x Compressed Iron Ingot
-2x Redstone
Yields 1x Air Canister (0 bar)

Manometer
With a Manometer you can measure pressures on a pneumatic network. Additionally, some pneumatic machines/tubes have some special information about them. For instance, the Safety Valve Tube displays at which threshold pressure it’s currently at. So if you aren’t feeling confortable with redstone or math, this is the tool for you.

Pneumatic Wrench
The Pneumatic Wrench can be used to rotate PneumaticCraft (and many more) blocks. It’s a ‘Buildcraft-compatible Wrench’ so to speak. Rotating PneumaticCraft blocks uses compressed air, other blocks don’t. This can be changed in the config though. When you disable this, this will allow other mod’s wrenches to rotate PneumaticCraft blocks as well.

Vortex Cannon
The Vortex Cannon is a weapon which shoots vortexes. A vortex is when air is spinning in a way that it doesn’t have much air friction and can be mostly stable. A cannon can shoot these. You can use this to shoot gusts to the target of choice.  You can use this to repel enemies, or to blow your to be farmed animals in a pen. Vortexes also have the ability to harvest any crop they come along. The higher the Vortex Cannon is pressurized, the more impact it has on it’s targets and the bigger the range is.
