Phlogisten amplifiers are used to concentrate phlogistic energy in storage mediums. The amplifier is basically a contra-rotating helix of coaxial phlogisten Coils matrixed into a conductance block. The effect of the phlogisten intermix allows a transfer of energy in excess of the actual phlogisten potential. Put simply a phlogisten storage device can be charged to a level far exceeding the energy available in the phlogisten conduit. Phlogisten storage comprises most æthership back-up and emergency power means. The other uses for phlogisten amplifiers are to charge phlogisten torpedoes; powering the ships ancillary craft and powering the torpedo launch tubes.
