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.
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).
