The Industrial replicators are one of two replicators systems in use with in the Federation with the other being the food replicators. Industrial replicators are optimized for the replication of inorganic substance although they can replicate organic analogs for use in optronic devices and insulting materials.
Industrial replicators come in a verity of sizes with the largest size has a phase transition chamber measuring 50.3 meters by 72.6 meters. This size is impractical for use aboard a ship and can only be found in use in the larger space stations or other such orbital repair facilities. Industrial replicators used on ships do not exceed a Transition Chamber size of 15.24 meters by 16.28 meters.
The standard raw material for the industrial replicators is a carbon slurry. When an item is selected from any industrial replicator in the replicator network. A measured quantity of this raw material is drawn from the storage tanks the raw material is stored in and directed to one of several phase transition coil chambers via the distribution manifold. Once in the phase transition chamber the raw material is dematerialized. The matter stream is then moved to the requesting replicator via the replicator wave guide network.
Once the matter stream arrives at the requesting terminal the matter stream enters the molecular transformational tank where a quantum geometry transformational matrix field is applied to the matter stream to conform to a digitally stored molecular pattern matrix. The transformed matter stream is then passed into the phase transition coil chamber built into replicator terminal where the matter stream is rematerialized into the requested item.
Damaged or otherwise unusable components can be placed in the industrial replicators for recycling. There are to modes of operations for the recycling function of the replicators. The first function dematerilized the damaged component and the matter stream is converted into carbon slurry that is then transferred to the storage tanks for storage. The second function is used when a replacement part required for a part that has been damaged. The damaged part is placed in the replicator the damaged part is scanned by the sensors built into the Transition chamber. If there is not enough material to create the replacement part the required matter is pulled from the storage tanks, dematerialized and passed to the transformational tank where the proper molecular pattern matrix is applied. The damaged part is then dematerialized and the resulting matter stream is combined with the extra matter within the transformational tank before the requested part is then materialized within the transition chamber.
