To use the Quantum Extractor, simply place the items you want to refine in the input slot for them to be converted into various raw materials. Many blocks are extracted in multiples of up to 50, so ensure that you placed a sufficient quantity into the input slot.
A list of possible extractions can be found here.
The Quantum Extractor is crafted at the Power Station. It is more efficient than the Extraction Lab and the Extraction Lab MKII, as it not only approximately triples the yield per input, it is also 7.5x faster than the Extraction Lab, and 4.5x faster than the MKII. This makes it well worth having one.
Crafted at the Power Station.
