Metal Salts

Jump to navigationJump to search
English Deutsch français magyar Türkçe

Metal salts are chemical compounds produced in an Acid Bath by immersing a metal in a mixture of acid and potash (which is an alkali). Every type of metal produces its own salt (e.g. Salts of Iron, Salts of Aluminum, etc.). Salts are used, among other things, to provide color in the crafting of pyrotechnics.

Not to be confused with ordinary salt.


Metal salts are produced in an Acid Bath. You will need the Neutralization tech to construct and use the acid bath.

Combine 1 Acid, 1 Potash, 25 water (does not consume the jugs) and 7 of the appropriate metal in the acid bath to begin the process.

Note: You must be holding the desired metal in your inventory to see the option to make salts.

As the acid reacts with the metal over time, precipitate will be generated. The longer the metal soaks in the acid, the more precipitate (and salts) will be produced; however, the rate at which additional salts are created diminishes with time. To take the salts, you need to Filter the Precipitate. This filters the metal salts from the bath, and ends the process. The salts are then available on the Bath's Take menu.

Salt Production Rate

Approximate times are (in Teppy-Time):

  • 2-5 salts within 1 minute
  • 6 salts in 3 minutes
  • 7 salts in 5 minutes
  • 8 salts in 8 minutes
  • 9 salts in 13 minutes
  • 10 salts in 20 minutes
  • 11 salts in 29 minutes
  • 12 salts in 42 minutes
  • 13 salts in 57 minutes
  • 14 salts in 1 hour 15 minutes
  • 15 salts in 1 hour 40 minutes
  • 16 salts in 2 hours
  • 17 salts in 3 hours
  • 18 salts in 4 hours
  • 19 salts in 5 hours
  • 20 salts in 6 hours
  • 21 salts in 7 hours
  • 22 salts in 8 hours
  • 23 salts in 10 hours
  • 24 salts in 12 hours
  • 25 salts in 14 hours
  • 26 salts in 16 hours
  • 27 salts in 18 hours
  • 28 salts in 20 hours
  • 29 salts in 24 hours
  • 30 salts in 29 hours
  • 36 salts in 62 hours
  • 43 salts in 5 days

A formula that fits close to the above times is salts = floor((teppyseconds*8)^0.25)
