VariantsEvaporation Pond

The Evaporation Pond (Heated) is one of only two machines which can produce Salt, a critical ingredient in Glass Mix and a requirement to manufacture Glass. The other is the Evaporation Pond variant which carries a 33% lower Worker, 50% lower Maintenance, and no Electricity cost, but also has 50% lower throughput. Compared to a pair of unheated Evaporation Ponds, one Evaporation Pond (Heated) consumes 60 kW to save two Worker, one Maintenance and a significant amount of space.

Salt can be created using either Seawater from a Seawater Pump or from the Brine byproduct of a Thermal Desalinator. If significant amounts of Brine are available from desalination, this is significantly cheaper than creating salt directly from Seawater, though Thermal Desalinators.are very expensive to run.
