The Emerald Transport Pipe is an advanced version of the basic wooden transport pipe. They allow a filter to be applied to limit what the pipe can extract.
For basic information about extracting items view Wooden Transport Pipe.
Similar to wooden pipes they do not connect to other pipes of the same type but should be placed beside an inventory block, powered with an engine or autarchic gate and connected to a further transport pipe. Alternatively, any extraction pipe can be powered by kinesis pipes directly using Power Adapter as a bridge.
The filter functions in a 'Blocking Round-Robin' style, meaning, for example, that if the Pipe is connected to a Chest with Dirt and Cobblestone specified in the Pipe's interface, the pipe will extract a certain amount of Dirt then a certain amount of Cobblestone, and it will cycle around to extract Dirt again (the 'certain amount' depends on how much MJ it is being given; if a Redstone Engine is being used, it will pull one item out at a time), leaving all other materials in the Chest. If the Chest runs out of either Dirt or Cobblestone then it will stop extracting altogether.
To extract liquids, Emerald Waterproof Pipes are used.
