Journal entry Boiler
I have made a device that allows for the production of gaseous water, steam. If I insert water and fuel, steam will be produced.
This steam can then be piped out the top.

Upgrade slot {{{slot}}}

The Boiler is a block from Flaxbeard's Steam Power. It is the main steam producer within the mod, and is a requirement for most of the machines within the mod. It produces steam when given water and solid fuel, such as wood or coal. Steam can be piped out of the top side of the block. Water can be input by simply using a bucket of water on the block, placing a bucket in the bottom slot of the GUI, by pumping it in with an Archimedes Screw, or other means of liquid transport. Water and items can be pumped into it from all sides. Boilers can be upgraded into Flash Boilers.

The top GUI slot is used to input fuel. The bottom GUI slot is for inputting water. The leftmost tank on the GUI displays stored water, whereas the rightmost tank on the GUI shows stored steam. It can store 10 buckets of water, and 5,000 SU of steam.

The Boiler can be camouflaged by sneak+using a block on it. A Pipe Wrench can be used to undo the camouflaging.
