The Auxiliary Venting Port is a block added by Thaumcraft 6. When attached to a side of an Essentia Smeltery, the Smeltery has a 33.33% chance to output harmless steam instead of Flux into the aura. Using multiple vents increases the chance with diminishing returns.

Thaumonomicon entry

I have discovered a way to manage the flux generated by the smelting process. By running the slurry through a secondary set of venting ports fitted with filters I am able to separate out the flux and safely vent it as harmless steam.
Like the slurry pumps, the vents need to be placed on the side of the smelter.
This process will reduce flux produced by about a third and additional vents will increase this, though there are diminishing returns.
