VariantsDistillation (Stage I)
Distillation (Stage III)

The Distillation (Stage II) is a machine which processes Medium Oil into Diesel and Light Oil. When combined with the Distillation (Stage I) and Distillation (Stage III) machines, they allow for the creation of Naphtha and Fuel Gas. All three units can be built direct together in a line with no tiles in between without loss of efficiency or they can be built independently and piped together if so desired. The primary disadvantage of the Distillation (Stage II) and its companion machines is a significant increase in the difficulty of designing the refinery layout, piping, and subsequent byproduct management.

Basic Distiller efficiency comparison

When compared to the Basic Distiller, the Distillation (Stage II) machine allows production of Diesel 50% more efficiently (1.5 Crude Oil/Diesel vs 1.0 Crude Oil/Diesel). It also does not generate Waste Water, though handling its byproducts will create some amount of Air Pollution.
