As in Railcraft Steam Tanks?  If so, CJ has this guy beat, you don't(or at least according to the wiki page shouldn't) need wooden pipes to extract the steam, as they output steam into pipes just fine, so gold is perfect for pumping steam even from the boiler itself.  Unless you mean using Iron Tanks to hold just steam.  In which case, yeah, this is pretty handy(which is why I'll be using it, even if I know that ABO is still updating on a dev page).

He meant the latter. This pipe was born out of talking about iron tanks holding steam in the railcraft thread.

I was happy to see ABO was still being worked on, but the current version is lacking valves which is my most used out of the bunch.

Just posted a new version with two new pipes: Cobblestone Gold Waterproof Pipe and Stone Gold Waterproof Pipe. These pipes behave like Stone and Cobblestone pipes in that they won't connect to pipes that aren't the same, but they have the flow rate and capacity of gold waterproof pipes.

These pipes should make Steam Boiler setups MUCH more compact.

1.4.2 version of all my mods coming this weekend.

I had mentioned in the Railcraft thread my urge to use the excess steam i was getting from boilers. After filling up a 9x9x8 Iron tank with steam i ran across the problem of getting it back out. Wooden pipes simply cannot extract it from a tank fast enough to power even one turbine. "Enter Denoflions" Now i can store the excess into a tank and run more turbines off of it. 4 turbines per High pressure boiler with at least 1 gold pipe feeding a tank (might be possible to get more have not checked how many it can pull and still keep max steam) Either way i can have a boiler section and pump all my steam into tank section to feed turbines!!!!

His new pipes just cut my cost / pipe maze down considerably =D

Before and after best configs!
Spoiler:

6gold pipes before, with mod total of 12 pipes off of one side, you can take another 12 off any other side and attach it. (however after 22 gold pipes pulling from a High pressure boiler it starts to lose steam.

That's pretty sweet. I knew it wouldn't take long before someone figured out the optimal setup for high pressure once they had some non-suck pipes to do it with.

nice, looks good so far.
Though i'm wondering one thing: is there a buildcraft version for 1.4.2 out already? i'm not seeing one yet there's that above and an updated NEI plugin already.

You can compile BC for yourself and it works so far but no official pre or releases are out for 1.4.2 but I think they are coming this weekend or at least next week :D

Beeeeeeeeeeep :P

Veeeeery nice, ever since Forestry machines stopped drawing power when not being used & Railcraft added the glorious iron tanks, valve pipes were pretty much the only ABO pipe I used, so it's nice to see one out for 1.3.2 Posted Image

CJ also put a nod on the wiki page for the Steam Boilers, btw. A nice link to here, or else I may not have found this Posted Image

Railcraft Wiki said:

If your not satisfied with the pipes from Buildcraft, Inc, you may also wish to take a look at the products from Denoflions Valve Co.
... Now, excuse me while I sign up to the Railcraft wiki to fix that "your" to a "you're" Posted Image

This is awesome, so many places I can save space now. Could we get a Iron Gold Pipe for both Liquid and Normal? Then I could get rid of the bottlenecks.
