The Pulverizer is a block added by the Thermal Expansion mod. It's main function is to turn metal ores into metal dusts. These dusts can then be smelted into ingots. Pulverizing a block of ore produces two dusts. Each dust turns into one ingot. Therefore, pulverizing effectively doubles your metal production.
When pulverizing, there is also a chance to produce a secondary product. Each ore has a specific secondary product when pulverized.
The pulverizer requires power to function. A simple early set up would be to directly connect it to a Steam Dynamo or a Magmatic Dynamo. This pairs nicely with a Redstone Furnace which operates in a very similar way.
The pulverizer has an internal power storage of 48,000MJ.
