Required modulesTransportation

The Pressure Resistance tube is a block added by Project Red to transported items from A to B like the Pressure tube (see Usage). The tube is needed for the Block Breaker and the Item Importer which do not connect to the pipes. The tube connects also with chests and Pressure tubes.

If the mod MineChem is installed, then you can decompose the Pressure Resistance tube with the Chemical Decomposer into 16 Silicon Dioxide and 64 Iron (Fe).



The Pressure Resistance tube is a special versions of the Pressure tube and a parts of another transport system of Project Red, which operates with air pressure. This pressure is created instantly if the connected Item Importer or Filtered Importer is activated by a Redstone signal. This pressure then transport items from different machines, e.g. the Block Breaker, or chests to another machines or chests (example shown in picture 1).

The Pressure Resistance tube is an option to control the routing path of transported items. It change the ranking of the possible paths. An example is shown in picture 2 and 3. Both pictures display a tube system to transport items from the chest on the bottom right to the other chest. But in picture 2 two pipes are replaced by Pressure Resistance tubes. This replacement changes the ranking of the paths which are actuated, so the paths are used as last, after all paths without Pressure Resistance tube. If more than one path with Pressure Resistance tube exists, then applies here again which path is the shortest one to the next free block with inventory.
