The Compressor is used to create many advanced items, such as Grid Advanced Alloy.png Advanced Alloy, Grid Carbon Plate.png Carbon Plates, and Grid Energy Crystal.png Energy Crystals. Other applications include the creation of snowballs, ice blocks, diamonds, sandstone, dense metal plates, Nether Brick and legacy construction foam pellets. In addition, it is used in the intermediate stages of crafting many items.

Note: As of v1.337, a Pump with an infinite water source under it and a compressor placed directly next to it will pump and compress water into snowballs without the need for cells. This functionality was removed in build 538.

Placing the item you want to compress in the upper slot compacts it, creating new items.

The Compressor is used to craft the Grid Recycler.png Recycler.

When using this machine with BuildCraft or RedPower, pipes and tubes must be connectes to the top of the Compressor to input items, while the sides are for removing compressed product and the bottom is for the battery slot.


It's amazing how much stuff you can craft with a basic workbench, isn't it? Big machines, boats, extremely nimble circuits, everything can be done just with a few tools.

But though this great circumstance, there ARE a few things you just can't do. And you know that.

However, this device can! Yes, we it can!

Using most advanced technology, the Freakin Compress-O-Matic C77 can create a pressure of over 9000 Gibbl. What is Gibbl you ask?

I don't know either, but it must be something frikkin awesome!

The most needed use of this stunning ability is to create advanced materials, like steel plating and other platingly plating stuff. You know, these stuffs...




Version Changes
Industrial Craft²
1.23 A pump with a compressor adjacent to it can now automatically produce snowballs without cells. BUGGED IN IC² 1.64.


  • As of the latest version, the compressor turns 1 Lapis Lazuli to 1 Lapis Lazuli block, allowing unlimited amounts of Lapis Lazuli to be duplicated. This bug is yet to be fixed.
