Basic Mechanical Pipe
|Basic Mechanical Pipe|
|Liquid storage||1,000 mB|
The Basic Mechanical Pipe is a pipe added by Mekanism, which transports liquids between storage blocks and machines. It is the tier 1 of liquid transport pipes provided by Mekanism, with the lowest capacity of 1000 mB and pump rate of 100 mB/s. Note: This type of pipe only transports liquids; for gases there are the pressurized tubes. It is also used as a component to craft the next tier of liquid transport pipes, the Advanced Mechanical Pipe.

Usage[edit | edit source]
To transport liquids, for example, from machine to machine, connect them with pipes (shown in Picture 1). The pump process automatically starts from the supplying machine (e.g., a pump). If the player is extracting liquids from a storage block (e.g., Dynamic Tank), the connection between pipe and tank must be configured with a Configurator to the "Pull" setting (shown in Picture 2).
