Creating Pure Ferrite with the Portable Refiner

Step 1: Gather Ferrite Dust

Before crafting a Portable Refiner, you first need to gather enough of the original resources to be able to obtain Pure Ferrite. The resource you're looking for is called Ferrite Dust, which can be easily gathered by mining various types of rocks, such as Lamantallite, Zacchite, and many others.

Alternatively, you could also break down Metal Plating, which also contains Ferrite Dust as one of its elements (1x Metal Plating = 50x Ferrite Dust).

Step 2: Build a Portable Refiner

The next step involves building a Portable Refiner, if you still don't have it. Here's a quick guide on how to craft and use one.

Step 3: Create Pure Ferrite

The last step is the easiest. This is when you need to insert your Ferrite Dust into the left slot of the Portable Refiner and any type of fuel into the top left slot. Then, activate the Refiner and the process will start.

After a short period of time (which depends on the amount of Ferrite Dust you input to the amount of Pure Ferrite you want), your Ferrite Dust will turn into the Pure Ferrite, which can be used for further building.


In these three simple steps you can now start acquiring Pure Ferrite for your structures, and be sure to check out other No Man's Sky Next guides at GameSkinny.
