|Pipeline Junction Cross|
|Can be attached to a pipeline to split it 4-way.|
|Unlocked at||Tier 3 - Coal Power|
The Pipeline Junction Cross is used to split pipelines into 4 ways and allow flow in any direction. Any configuration works functionally, 1 input:3 output, 2 input;2 output, etc, as long as the total input pipes' flow rates do not exceed the total output pipes' flow rates.
Snapping[edit | edit source]
- A junction can be snapped to an existing pipeline, similar to snapping a Splitter onto a belt.
- The junction can be rotated with its rotation axis aligned with the pipe, with 45 degree interval.
- A junction can be placed on Foundations for precise placement. You can rotate it in 45 degrees interval horizontally.
- A junction can be placed on Walls for precise placement. You can rotate it in 45 degrees interval vertically.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- A Pipeline Junction Cross does not have the 300m3/min flow limit. So it will work even if it is connected to 2 input pipes and 2 output pipes with overall flow of more than 300m3/min.
- The Junction cannot be built directly onto a building's pipe connector so attempting to extract fluids from extractors with more than 300m3/min will not work.
- Connecting MK 1 and Mk 2 pipes to a junction has similar ratios to conveyors.
- If you connect a Mk 2 pipe to a junction and then add 3 Mk 1 pipes on the other ends, it will create a similar 1:3 ratio that conveyors would.
- All of this should be done on a flat surface, otherwise fluid may not reach the junction or will backlog and not reach it's destination.
