One boiler for each machine. This may seem costly but is way easier to setup and operate.
Well, the cost is not a big issue - I just think it's odd that fluid pipes, which supposedly can go in numerous directions, don't work as advertised unless you only use them in a straight line or build with a massive number of tank extenders/shutter covers (which require Aluminium for whatever reason and you are no longer building intricate steam networks when you can craft them.)
Can shutters be moved down the tech tree a bit, so that they are in the same tech level as drain covers (or at least, a one-way valve)? Shutter technology definitely predates distillation towers IRL.
Why is the Invar Steam Turbine not getting a required amount of steam (it makes screeching sound)? The Tiny Steel Fluid Pipe is consistently full of 200L steam, so it should be pushing 100L/t to the Steam Turbine, but the turbine keeps whining.
