Fire Extinguisher
Found in: Extinguisher lockers
Used for: Extinguishing fires and the lives of unaware command staff, ghetto jetpacks
Strategy: A fire extinguisher will spray water across the room to put out fires or change your direction in space.
This has multiple uses, from being a staple of space travel to rocketing yourself down a hallway strapped to a wheeled chair, to even its intended purpose. Easily the best weapon against Slimes. A Chaplain can bless the water in a fire extinguisher to bless an entire stretch of hallway at once. Will need refilling at a water tank.

Minature Fire Extinguisher
Found in: Emergency Toolboxes
Used for: Putting out small fires, ghetto jetpacks
Strategy: A fire extinguisher will spray water across the room to put out fires or change your direction in space.
Functionally the same as a normal fire extinguisher, but has a smaller capactity and can fit into your pockets. Will need refilling at a water tank.

Emergency Oxygen Tank
Found in: Atmospherics Office, Emergency Lockers, internals box
Used for: As the name suggest, used as an emergency oxygen supply. It's not a question about if you need it, it's a question of when you need it, keep one with you at all time.
Strategy: Stuff it in your pocket, belt, or suit slot and leave it there, you'll need it.
A small oxygen tank that you can wear in your belt slot or in the suit slot of various suits. It is typically kept at approximately 21 kPa with a minimal release setting. Oxygen tanks of all sizes can be filled by Atmospheric Technicians and are used with a breath mask to set up an internal air supply. You might want to set this to 16 kPa release pressure. Can be filled to 1013 kPa.

Oxygen Tank
Found in: Tank dispensers, Emergency Lockers, Mining Outpost EVA
Used for: Mostly used for hardsuits as it nicely fit in to the suit slot, but is sadly too big for a pocket. Also used for bomb making.
Strategy: Don't forget one of these when you grab a hardsuit.
An emergency oxygen tank with a much bigger capacity and a much slower oxygen consuming rate. A must for miners who like to stay in space for long times. Can be filled to 1013 kPa.

Phoron Tank
Found in: Tank dispensers
Used for: Used for the Singularity Engine and bomb making.
Strategy: Handle with care.
Used by Engineers for radiation collection from the Singularity Engine, by Scientists for bombs, and your typical scoundrel for lightning fires with a flamethrower or releasing toxins into the air, phoron is the most hunted resource by NanoTrasen. It's the reason you are here.


Found in: Emergency Storage, Maintenance, Atmospherics, Toxins Lab
Used for: Used for holding and transporting gases like Oxygen, phoron, and the like.
Strategy: Place around hallways, wait for Assistants to open them for no reason.
When new and before use, or when almost fully emptied, a label can be selected from its interface. This will change its color to indicate what it may contain (or fooling people into thinking it contains Oxygen and not Phoron)

Can be made with 10 sheets of Metal.

Space Heater
Found in: Emergency Storage, Maintenance, Atmospherics
Used for: Heating up a cold area.
Strategy: Set heat to high and drag it along with you to prolong a spacesuit-less space walk.
Made by the Space Amish, it can reliably heat up a room to livable temperature. Requires an energy cell, all of them are loaded with crappy 1000 Watt one, keep it in mind if you need free battery.

Portable Pump
Found in: Locker Room, Atmospherics, Hallway outside the Atmospherics office
Used for: Filling a room with air. Can also be use to suck the air out of a room.
Strategy: Set pump direction to out and power to maximum, then watch things fly as you turn it on.
It both sucks and blows. Be sure to connect it to the blue ports outside Atmospherics to fill it up with delicious air mix beforehand. Turn it on, and it re-pressurizes a room until the air runs out.

Portable Scrubber
Found in: Locker Room, Atmospherics, Hallway outside the Atmospherics office
Used for: Cleaning the air from phoron and other unwanted gasses. Also used for empting phoron tanks and oxygen tanks.
Strategy: Pull it to the (Phoron) leak and turn it on.
In with the bad air, out with the good air. Flip it on to clean the air very slowly. Connect it to the red ports outside Atmospherics to empty it out once it's full. Make sure you also re-fill the area with clean oxygen.

Pipe Dispenser
Found in: Atmospherics
Used for: Making pipes and pumps.
Strategy: It is still possible to dispose of pipes and pumps into it when it's in movable-mode.
Using a Wrench will toggle it between movable-mode and dispensing-mode.

When in dispensing-mode and in a powered room, it can dispense pipes and pumps for use.
Despite not being able to pick them up with your hands, you can drag the pipe onto the dispenser to dispose of extras.

Gas System Items

Gas Containers


The most used gas container on the station. Can be moved and connected to a Connector Port using a wrench.

  • Pipe.pngPipe Manifold1.png Pipe Manifold2.png Regular Pipes

The most basic objects needed in a Gas Pipe Network.

  • Insulated Pipe.pngInsulated Pipes


  • Scrubber Port.pngScrubber

Scrubs the nasty out of things, or acts like a vacuum

  • Vent Port.gif(Unary) Vent

Can pump gasses in or out of its area. used in airlock systems.

  • Connector Port.pngConnector Port

Used to attach canisters, pumps or scrubbers to a pipe network.

  • Meter.pngMeter

Tells the pressure and temperature of the gas inside the pipes.

  • Gas Sensor.pngGas Sensor

  • Pump.pngGas Pump

The basic pumps you'll find all over atmospherics. Good for precise pressure levels. Goes up to 4500 kPa. The red mark is on the exit side of the pump.

  • Volumetric Pump.pngVolumetric Pump

A bit like the gas pump, but pumps via volume rather than going for pressure. 200 is its max output, but this is fairly significant. Faster than a gas pump (You can even fill canisters up past the standard 4500 kpa pressure!), so best used in systems where precise pressure isn't needed. The red mark is on the exit side of the pump.

  • Manual Valve.pngManual Valve

Prevents the gas from getting through when closed. The green light means the valve is open.

  • Digital Valve.pngDigital Valve

Prevents the gas from getting through when closed. The green light means the valve is open.

  • Gas Filter.pngGas Filter

Device that filters specific gasses.

  • Gas Mixer.pngGas Mixer

Device that mixes specific gasses.

  • Air Injector.pngAir Injector

  • Passive Gate.pngPassive Gate

Doesn't pump gas, but lets certain pressure through. Can let up to 4500 kPa pressure through. It should be noted that its on status can be easy to miss, being just a small red/green light.

  • Filter Control.pngFilter Control
