It is also the only machine able to make Hydrogen without additional byproducts that cause Pollution, making it a critical component in Heavy Oil Cracking systems, Fuel Gas synthesis, the production of Silicon (Poly) for Electronics, and Uranium Pellets for creating Uranium Rods to power Nuclear Reactors. This machine is capable of breaking down Ammonia into Nitrogen and Hydrogen which allows for Pollution-free flaring/venting of the constituent parts.
Comparison to the Air Separator
The Electrolyzer is capable of generating Oxygen by splitting Water, though it is vastly outclassed by the Air Separator, which can create it directly from the atmosphere, in nearly every metric. Comparatively, it requires nearly double the Electricity requirement (100 KW vs 60 KW), produces a fraction of the output (1.5 /60s vs 24 /60s), and requires both Steel and Construction Parts III production lines (or trading) to erect. However, the Electrolyzer carries a smaller footprint (5x4 vs 9x6) when input piping is not considered, which makes it potentially viable for this Oxygen generation in niche cases where very both low output is acceptable and build space is very limited.
