The Valve is a special structure which consists of 2 pipe entrances. It possesses the ability to block the flow of iridium from one entrance to the other. This ability can be toggled by interacting with the handle atop the Valve. While it is parallel to the Valve, the Valve is open; while it is perpendicular to the Valve, the Valve is closed.
Another less expensive, but less adaptive way of blocking pipes is the Cap.
The Valve is an excellent choice if an iridium network must be split into two quickly or often, or if a group of structures in an iridium network must be denied iridium due to their high consumption.
