Sizing Charts

The following sizing tables are utilized to determine the proper size and maximum capacity of Gastite/FlashShield Flexible Gas Piping in cubic feet per hour based on total appliance load and total length of runs.

Natural Gas Sizing Charts
Propane Gas Sizing Charts

 

Pressure Drop Tables

Table 7-21
Pressure Drop of Natural Gas in Gastite/FlashShield CSST

Based on gas pressure of 0.5 PSI or less and a 0.60 specific gravity.

Table 7-22
Pressure Drop of Propane Gas in Gastite/
FlashShield CSST
Based on gas pressure of 0.5 PSI or less and a 0.60 specific gravity.

Table 7-24
Steel IPS Pipe Pressure Drop Table

Pressure Drop Per Foot - Inches of Water Column for Iron Pipe. Based on a gas of 0.60 specific gravity.

Tables include losses for four 90° bends and two end fittings. Tubing runs with a larger number of bends and/or fittings shall be increased by an equivalent length of tubing to the following equation: L=1.3n where L is additional length of tubing and n is the number of additional fittings and/or bends. Conversion factor for use with propane: Divide BTUs of LPG by 1535 to obtain equivalent CFH of Natural Gas.

Size-It

Design the layout of your gas supply system using Gastite's Size-It software. Based on the design you create, the appropriate pipe sizes will be calculated automatically. A materials list will be generated, including recommended components and estimated material costs.

Sum of Pressure Loss Worksheet

With Gastite’s Excel-based workbook, it’s easy to calculate the pressure at the start and end of a run. Use this resource to enter the details for your gas system and determine the sum of pressure loss. There’s even a worksheet with a reserved area to enter a drawing of your project.
