Advanced Refinery Schematic

Post by DerivePi » Thu Jun 26, 2014 5:27 pm

My idea of a balanced advanced refinery that produces Lubricant, Petro and, if desired, solid fuel from crude and water. The liquid storage is only needed for advancing from basic to advanced oil refinery. Afterwards, the Heavy and Light oils can be cracked into Petro.

I like to place my sulfur, H2SO4, Battery, and plastic production in my Electronics Department.

With 4 Advanced Oil Refineries, the system should balance at:
1 Lubricant, 1 Heavy Oil crack for Lubricant overflow, 6 light Oil crack, 1 light Oil to Solid Fuel (if you desire solid fuel. Heavy and petro to solid fuel is less productive), 2 Sulfur, 1 H2SO4, 2 Plastic, 5 Advanced Circuits, 6 batteries, 6 science-3, and 3 Processing Units

What sort of crude oil flow does this thing need per second? I usually have trouble feeding my single refinery from less than 3 oilfields that have dropped down to 0.1/s.

it should need about 8 oil/s. (2 oil/s per refinary, 4x refinary.)

Incidentally, what was used to create that fantastic schematic?

AutoCAD with custom dynamic blocks. Good practice for me

Hi DerivePi,

I did a tier3 research lab on square paper and pencil the other day but his looks more fun. I don't know if you can, but could you post the cad blocks on the forum?

no dice. Can you recommend a file server for use?

I reckon Dropbox could do it?

I really like your designs, they incredibly well thought out!

Any chance you could boost the resolution? It's really hard to read a lot of the stuff as is. Also, a PDF might work well.

You can find the overall (WIP) factorio layout here. Its fairly large so you will need to zoom in at least to 150% to read it.

Thanks for that bigger resolution PDF, I was finding it very hard to read the type on the smaller images, and wanted to look at them in all their full scale glory. :mrgreen:

That layout is absolutely amazing. I'll have to try and build it sometime.
Is there a chance that you could get the total of all the machine that you used in that build? using a blueprint or something?
Want to know how many bloody assemblers I'm going to need to create.
