The Icon Block Conveyor Tube Conveyor Tube is used alongside several similar blocks to link inventories on a ship or station into a network. Once established, the conveyor network allows items to be easily transferred between blocks and will automatically move items as needed.

For more information about conveyors, see Conveyor system.

The Conveyor Tube is only able to transfer items in a straight line. When intersections or curves are needed, instead use a Icon Block Conveyor Conveyor or Icon Block Curved Conveyor Tube Curved Conveyor Tube, respectively.

A number of indicator lights appear on the fully-built Conveyor Tube, showing whether or not it is connected to an inventory on both sides of the tube, at which point it will change from red to yellow in color.


The Conveyor Tube consumes 40 W of power when placed in large ships and stations and 80 W in small ships. It consumes no power if inactive.
