From Satisfactory Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

There are ten different fluids of different purposes in Satisfactory. They are transported with Pipelines and can be stored in Fluid Buffers. To the player, their amount is shown in cubic meters (m3) with up to 2 decimals, however, internally the game stores them in liters (1/1000 of a cubic meter).

Unlike items, fluids cannot be carried in the inventory, unless packaged.

Nine of the fluids are liquids, Nitrogen Gas being the only currently-processable gas.
