Phazon Nutrient Vat
Used in the Phazon Mines, these vats mixed Phazon-rich rations for Elite Pirates, as well as other Project Helix specimens, and Metroids that relied on such substances for nourishment. Though it is possible they were used to process a variety of ingestible Phazon substances, only Elite Pirate rations and a Synthetic Metroid ration mix are mentioned explicitly. They're encountered in Elite Control and Metroid Quarantine A.
