Barrels can be used to store and transport 250 units of various fluids. Since they are solid objects, they can be used as an alternative to pipes, once Fluid handling is researched. The barrels themselves are reusable once the fluids are drained.

Barrels stack in groups of 10. A single Cargo wagon can hold 400 barrels, which gives a capacity of 100,000 units per Cargo wagon - 25,000 more units than the capacity of a fluid wagon.


Empty Barrels

Empty Barrels can be crafted. When Barrels are emptied, the (required) Assembling machine will also return an Empty Barrel.

Example of use

Barrels are useful in situations where pipes are not available or a bad option, such as oil production far away from your main factory. Barrels can be transported with a Belt transport system or Railway, by Logistic robots, via Car or Tank, or in the player's inventory. A simple example with Transport belts: Crude-oil-barrel-handling-example.png
