Tungsten is a refined Metal obtained by melting Wolframite.

Usage[]

As a Refined Metal, Tungsten can be used to build advanced Power systems, buildings and Automation systems. However this is not recommended. Better leave the Tungsten for Thermium production.

The main usage of Tungsten is for Thermium production in Molecular Forge. 5 kg Niobium + 95 kg Tungsten = 100 kg Thermium.

It is recommended to build power wires and automation wires nearby rockets with Tungsten, as it won't melt by the extremely hot gases of rocket exhaust.

Production[]

Metal Refinery can produce Tungsten from Wolframite with 100% efficiency. 100 kg Wolframite = 100 kg Tungsten.

Smooth Hatch can eat Wolframite and excretes Tungsten. It is around 75% efficiency.

Rock Crusher can produce Tungsten from Wolframite with 50% efficiency. 100 kg Wolframite = 50 kg Tungsten + 50 kg Sand.

Tungsten Volcanoes can be found on one planet, which can provide continuous tungsten production (on the same planet as Experiment 52B S).

Abyssalite, can be melted at 3421.85 °C into Liquid Tungsten, cooling this down will produce Tungsten. Though this requires an exceptionally high temperature.
