The Industrial Splitter is a deployable item in RUST for sourcing and splitting materials.
Basic functionality of the Industrial Splitter
Players may deploy industrial splitters on nearly any surface in locations where they possess building privilege. The primary function of the splitter is to perform the same splitting task as a standard Fluid Splitter but for a designated resource input instead of water. The resource is channeled in through a single Industrial In port. This resource is then output to one of three Industrial Out ports.
By default, the industrial splitter will attempt to dump all resources into Industrial Out port one first. If Out port 1 doesn’t exist, is currently full, or has been accidentally disconnected; the splitter will send the resource dump to Out port 2 if available. If also missing, it will then default to Out 3. Resources will not move if no outbound ports are available.
There is currently a display screen attributed to this item, but it doesn’t appear to function at this time.
Presently, a Wiring Tool and electrical input are not currently required to operate the industrial splitter. The item’s tooltip information currently lists the power usage as 1.
When utilizing the Pipe Tool, the industrial splitter possesses 1 Industrial In port and 3 Industrial Out ports. Currently, the industrial splitter does not appropriately divert materials equally among the three ports, making it less than ideal for interfacing with the Industrial Crafter.
Means of getting an Industrial Splitter
Currently, the industrial splitter is craftable via the Work Bench Level 1, requiring 20 scrap to research directly, or 230 scrap to tech tree unlock. It may also be found in medium to high tier crates.
