The Extractor is used to extract Rubber from Rubber Wood, as well as Coalfuel Cells from H. Coal Cells and Biofuel Cell from Bio Cells. The Extractor will output 3 rubber per Sticky Resin, making it 3 times more efficient than a Furnace, or Electric Furnace .
In combination with BuildCraft or RedPower, one may fill the extractor with a pipe connecting to the top of the Extractor, and retrieve the product with another pipe connected to any of its four sides.
Powering the ExtractorEdit
Like all other Industrial Craft processors, the Extractor is powered by EU . It can be powered by connecting it to an EU emitting block, such as the BatBox or an LV Transformer, or by placing EU storage items into it, such as the Single-Use Battery or RE Battery. It is a tier 1 processor so it requires at most a Low Voltage packet to operate. Any input greater than Low Voltage--without using any Transformer Upgrades--will cause it to explode; this means that if you are using it with an MFE or MFSU, you will need to lower the packet size to LV with a transformer: stepping down from MV to LV requires one LV Transformer, stepping down from HV to LV requires an MV Transformer followed by an LV Transformer.
|Raw Materials Needed|
It can be upgraded to a Centrifuge Extractor .
Maximum Input: 32 EU/t before blowing up.
The four slots on the right are used to place upgrades in the machine. The three upgrades that are available are the Overclocker Upgrade, the Transformer Upgrade and the Energy Storage Upgrade.You can stack upgrades, but there is no use having more than 3 transformer upgrades or 16 overclocker upgrades in a extractor, as packet sizes of more than 2048EU are not acheivable in unmodified Tekkit, and additional overclockers do not increase speed.
The following table shows the amount of time it takes to extract compared to how many overclockers are in the extractor, and how much EU/t the extractor now requires with the added overclockers:

Removal & RecoveryEdit
There are several ways of removing and recovering an Extractor with varying degrees of success.
- By hand - Destroys block, returning nothing, 100% of the time
- By Pickaxe - Destroys Extractor, returns a Machine Block 100% of the time.
- By Wrench or Electric Wrench in normal mode - Recovers Extractor 80% of the time, returns a Machine Block 20% of the time.
- By Electric Wrench in loss-less mode - Returns Extractor 100% of the time.
