BFx59H injector is a 2G-to-H converter which works by directly interacting two gliders on a BFx59H to produce a Herschel in the same way as the B-heptomino. A ghost Herschel marks the output location in the infobox on the right. After conversion, an R64 is generally used to prevent the glider on the south-west colliding with the conduit, as seen in the infobox. An example of its usage in a period-14 glider gun variant is shown below.

The viewer below shows the injection of a Herschel into an existing track using L156 and pauses several times. Ghost Herschels mark the output locations, and a duoplet marks the block produced in the period-doubling L156 in the northeast.

- Pause 1: the Herschel reaches generation 4 of the R-pentomino.
- Pause 2: the Herschel reaches the BFx59H, the exact conduit that the gliders will be injecting into.
- Pause 3: the original Herschel reaches the R64 conduit. The gliders are in the position to be injected.
- Pause 4: the original Herschel passes the R64. The new Herschel is in the process of injecting.
- Pause 5: the new Herschel is successfully injected.
Pauses 6-10 show the procedure of removing the new Herschel that is up to 495 ticks separated. This does not work if the one Herschel is 503 or more ticks separated, and the conduit will break if the Herschels are separated by 496-502 generations.
- Pause 6: the original Herschel reaches generation 4 of the R-pentomino.
- Pause 7: the new Herschel passes the R64. By using an RNE-19T84 instead of the standard L156 catalyst, the new Herschel can be blocked.
- Pause 8: the original Herschel reaches the BFx59H. It is in the position to block the new Herschel.
- Pause 9: the original Herschel (which is currently in a temporary R-pentomino phase in the BFx59H) leaves a block (in where the duoplet originally was), which will remove the new Herschel.
- Pause 10: the new Herschel is destroyed by the block. The original Herschel evolves normally, continuing along the Herschel track.
The original Herschel can also be removed by putting a block in the position of the duoplet. The two conduits above (R64 and F117) and the welded eater 5 ensure that the block is always absent when a new Herschel 503+ generations later comes. This conduit does not work for Herschels spaced 496-502 generations apart.
