Re: Factorio

As far as I know, and I'm not 100% on this, pipes are little containers with an inventory size related to the pipe type (like a volume of 10 or 20). Connected pipes average out their inventory so if 1 has 10 and the other 0, after a few seconds both will have 5, but they also have a resitence so transfer speed lowers itself after a long stretch of pipes.

You can use small pumps to raise the pressure inside of pipes if you need to, like this: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6066
