Pipes are a block similar to cables, used to transfer liquids instead of EU. They come in 4 sizes: tiny, small, medium and large, and 2 varieties: bronze and steel. Steel pipes can carry and hold twice as their bronze counterparts, but take more work to create. Pipes will not connect to each other normally, and instead must be connected with the a Wrench (New). Normal wrenches and Electric Wrenches will not work.
Transfer Rates & Internal Capacities
Each pipe has a transfer rate and an internal capacity, which are equal to each other. The transfer capacity is how many mbs (milliblocks) of fluid can move through the length of pipe, measure in mbs/second. The internal capacity is how much liquid is able to sit in the pipe at any given time, measured simply in mbs. When pipes transfer fluids, it is possible for the recipient inventory to become full while fluid is still in the pipes connected to it. When this happens, those fluids remain in the pipes, up to the internal capacity, until room becomes available or the pipe is broken, destroying any fluid inside in the case of the latter.
