Liquid Manager (LM): An efficient Liquid Storage setup?


Recommended Posts



There are a couple of good threads here that reference the use of Steves Carts2 Liquid Managers (LM). Does anyone have a really good setup using LM's? I'm looking to store a lot of Lava and its quite inefficient using the normal minecraft tank (8 Glass blocks, middle empty on a 9x9 crafting table).


If anyone has a great efficient setup and has pictures, that would be very helpful.


Plus if possible, a short description of how to use them as they have a fairly advanced user Interface (UI) and its difficult to work out how best to use them efficiently.


Thank you for any help guys,

Kind regards,

Thermal Expansion's Portable Tanks are better than BuildCraft's liquid tanks.  They can be upgraded to hold up to 64 buckets (64,000 mB) of liquids, and can be picked up with a wrench and placed elsewhere.  Basic tank is crafted with 1 copper in the middle, 4 glass blocks on the sides and top and bottom.




The wiki is woefully out of date, I've fixed the page for the tank so it is more accurate.

Portable Tanks are good, but not the end-all solution. Their strong point is their simplicity, ability to be carried around when full, and (of course) seamless integration with fluiducts.

I have not tried Liquid Managers yet, but I heard they are good for maximum density storage, only beaten by Railcraft Steel Tanks, which are not in Tekkit right now.


Maybe >this will help.
