The Industrial Forge is an advanced crafting station that is used to refine Metal Metal into Metal Ingot Metal Ingot and Oil Oil and Hide Hide into Gasoline Gasoline at a much quicker speed (20x) than the regular Refining Forge.


Similar to the Fabricator, the Industrial Forge requires Gasoline Gasoline to run. Simply place it in the Industrial Forge with materials needed to be refined and select "turn on".


Gasoline is the only fuel source that can power the Industrial Forge. The following tables summarize the burn time and number of ingredients that can be refined.

1 × Gasoline Gasoline 100 × Gasoline Gasoline
Burn Time 30m 2d 2hr
Metal Consumed 3,600 × Metal Metal

360,000 × Metal Metal

Scrap Metal Consumed 2,400 × Scrap Metal Scrap Metal

240,000 × Scrap Metal Scrap Metal

Wood Consumed 1,800 × Wood Wood

180,000 × Wood Wood

Oil & Hide Consumed 7,200 × Oil Oil

6,000 × Hide Hide

720,000 × Oil Oil

600,000 × Hide Hide


Each resource which can be produced with the industrial forge takes a different amount of time to be refined and is also refined in bulk amounts if enough resources are available. The table below lists each resource as well as the maximum amount able to created each time.

Resource Refining Time
20 × Metal Ingot Metal Ingot 20s
20 x Scrap Metal Ingot 15s
100 × Charcoal Charcoal 100s
100 × Gasoline Gasoline 30s
1 × Charcoal Charcoal 1s

A fully loaded industrial forge refining metal can:

  • Hold and smelt 29,700 Metal (in 99 slots)
  • Consuming 9 Gasoline (in 1 slot)
  • Taking 04h 08m to refine
  • Which produces 14,850 Metal Ingots.

A fully loaded industrial forge refining oil can:

  • Hold and refine 7000 Oil (in 70 slots) and 6000 Hide (in 30 slots)
  • Consuming 2 Gasoline (Place 1 gasoline into forge and turn it on, then fill with oil and hide)
  • Taking 29.2 minutes to refine
  • Which produces 5,831 Gasoline

A fully loaded industrial forge burning wood can:

  • Hold and burn 9,900 Wood (in 99 slots)
  • Consuming 6 Gasoline (in 1 slot)
  • Taking 2h 45m to refine
  • Which produces 9,900 Charcoal

Note that when refining gasoline you must allow 1 slot to turn on the forge before completely loading it. The 2nd gasoline consumed (mentioned above) will be taken from the gasoline already refined so you will receive net total of 5,830 gasoline. Be careful to not waste gasoline by turning off the Forge after the refining is completed (at 29.2 minutes) but before a 3rd Gasoline is consumed.



  • The Industrial Forge is huge. It can be placed on a single foundation, but will require a 3x3x6 enclosed structure to hide it completely.
  • Keep an eye on the forge when refining oil because when unattended, the produced gasoline can itself be burned as fuel.
  • Cannot be placed on platform saddles.
  • The Industrial Forge will not function if it is in any way submerged in water.
  • Besides metal and gasoline, it can also be used to burn wood at an extremely fast rate to mass-produce charcoal for making a large amount of Gunpowder.
