The Singularity Compressor is a machine from IndustrialCraft 2 Classic. It is an upgraded version of the Compressor that uses the 'heat-up' mechanic of the Induction Furnace.



The Singularity Compressor consumes EU to compress items into denser forms, for use in the processing of advanced materials. It uses the same recipe list as the IndustrialCraft 2 Compressor. It accepts up to 128EU/t, but only consumes up to 16EU/t when active.

Like the Induction Furnace, the Singularity Compressor must pressurize before it can be used efficiently. A Singularity Compressor takes 10,000 ticks (8 minutes 20 seconds) to reach full pressure. The Compressor will gain pressure when it is actively grinding items, or when it is fed a Redstone signal, and it will lose pressure when neither of these are present. Pressure is lost at 4x the rate it can be gained. A 0% pressure Compressor requires 4000 ticks to process an item, however a 100% pressure Compressor requires 12 ticks to process an item. While a Singularity Compressor is spinning up (with no items to compress), it consumes 1 EU/t. However, once an item is inserted, its energy consumption increases to 16 EU/t. By these numbers, a heavily overclocked conventional Compressor can operate more quickly than a Singularity Compressor, but will consume enormous amounts of energy to do so.

The Singularity Compressor's GUI contains 1 Input slot, 1 Battery slot, 2 Output slots, and 2 Upgrade slots. It will accept all IC2C upgrades except the Overclocker Upgrade.
