Fluid Pipe (BuildCraft)
The Fluid Pipe is a fundamental part of the BuildCraft mod and once a system is set-up, will allow fluids to be transported around the world without the need for individual containers such as Buckets and Cans. They can be connected to a Tank in order to store large amounts of fluids, and many other machines support fluid inport and export directly using a Fluid Pipe. When connecting to a tank or machine, pipe type and placement is important. To extract liquid, a Wooden Fluid Pipe energised by a Redstone Engine is used. For machines a specific side of the machine might be used to insert or eject liquids, furthermore many a machine auto-eject liquids to any type of pipe. Fluid Pipes are crafted by combining a specific type of Transport Pipe with Pipe Sealant.
