The Vis Filter is a specialized conduit that slowly draws out any tainted vis flowing through it and pumps the rest directly into the atmosphere.
The process of pumping Taint into the atmosphere occurs relatively slowly, but if a proper and constant flow is maintained through the filter, it is possible to rid ones conduit network of any unwanted taint. Of course, the taint does end up messing with your aura, but such is the cost of progress. Note that the filters can connect to each other, so you can place them in a tight compound with the need for additional conduits if you want to deliberately taint an area or clean your vis network very fast.
UsageEditIt is possible to stack additional filters on top of each other. Only the bottom-most filter can connect to other conduits, but each additional filter in the stack reduces the amount of taint that gets pumped into the atmosphere - some of the taint is simply destroyed. This does slow the filtering process down however, but it is much kinder to the environment.
Filters draws Taint at a strength of 15 TCB (Thaums per cubic block).
Each tick, a stack of filters removes 1/40th of a unit of tainted vis from the system it is connected to, and adds it to its internal storage. When the stack's internal storage is full, it releases one unit of atmospheric taint, and its storage becomes empty again. The storage capacity for a stack of N filters is (9+N)/10.
