I have found out that I can simply jump over the tedious bauxite processing by making an HV electrolyzer with which I could electrolyze many things to get alumina directly. So I made it plus an HV dynamo and an iridium diesel engine to power it.
I set up everything and find that this electrolyzer jams when I try to process anything in it—it just takes whatever is there, starts to process, then immediately breaks with the sound and that’s it. I tried different recipes with various EU/t requirements, but they all fail. What gives?
It shall work, and I don’t know why it doesn’t. The diesel engine should give 512 RU/t, the dynamo then must output 352 EU/t and the HV electrolyzer takes 256 to 1024 EU/t. So what’s wrong? I fuel the engine with ethanol, if that’s somehow matters, but I tried nitro fuel in creative mode with the same result.
My guess is that it breaks because too much power is supplied for the recipe. If so, what is the exact value? How much a power requirement can be exceeded before it refuses to process the recipe?
