Gas Line Sizing Calculations

There are two traditional pipe sizing methods are the longest length and branch length. Proper line sizing allows your system to maintain the required minimum pressure drop. Let us help you get the line size calculations correct the first time. We know how to determine exactly what size of gas line is necessary and service Rancho Cordova.

When using the “longest length” method the pipe size for each section is determined by referring to the longest length of piping from the delivery point.

While using the “branch length” process, the pipe size for each section of the longest pipe run, from the delivery point to the furthest remote outlet, is determined by the longest length of pipe and the load demand of a section.

To decide what size pipe or gas line is needed, we may need to consider the following:

  • Maximum gas demand (BTU requirements)
  • Allowable loss – pressure to point of delivery
  • Diversity factor
  • Length of pipe and number of fittings
  • Spacial clearance
  • Material compatibility

The primary goal of determining the pipe size for the natural gas system is to make sure there is sufficient pressure at the inlet of each appliance.
