The Compressor is commonly used to craft Advanced Alloys, Carbon Plates, Industrial Diamonds (now just diamonds), Compressed Plants and for Refined Uranium. It can also make snowballs and Ice. In addition, it is used for the intermediate stages of crafting many items.

Compressors may be powered by a direct Cable connection, a Single-Use Battery, or a RE Battery in the lower slot. Remember that to retrieve any machine, you must use a Wrench or an Electric Wrench.

As of v1.337 a Pump (IC2) with an infinite water source under it and a Compressor placed directly next to it will pump and compress water into snowballs without the need for cells.

When using BuildCraft or Redpower Pneumatic Tubes or Pipes, the top is the input and the rest of the block is output.
