Liquid Valve allows the player to control or stop the contents of a Liquid Pipe. Best to use after branching. Maintains pressure in an empty pipe before deconstructing it. Because it allows liquid flow only one way, it can also be used to give the game a hint what flow direction the liquid has when the pipe grid gets more complicated.
The Liquid Valve has a volume setting, ranging from 0g/s to 10,000 g/s. This setting is the upper limit of the output liquid volume. For example, if the setting is set to 5 kg/s and input volume is 10 kg/s, the output volume is limited to 5 kg/s and excess liquid is blocked. If the setting is set to 5 kg/s and input volume is 3 kg/s, the output volume is 3 kg/s.
Switching the volume setting of Liquid Valve requires Duplicant operation, and takes some time.
