The gas line size will depend on BTU rating of the water heater, the other gas appliances, and where they are installed on each branch from the meter and regulator. There are two methods for determining the required pipe size: the longest length method or the branch length method.How many feet of pipe do I need for a gas line?
Add approximately 5 feet of pipe per fitting. Natural Gas Example: A machine with a burner that requires 440,000 BTU would need a 1 -1/4” pipe for a 20” long run. NOTE: The sizing charts above list the specific pipe sizes required for the amount of BTU’s for a new gas line installations.What is an indirect line heater?
They can also be used to heat gas or oil in transmission lines. Indirect Line Heaters help you maintain an optimal temperature in your well stream as pressures are rapidly reduced to sales line requirements.What is an Exterran line heater?
They can also be used to heat gas transmission lines. Exterran Line Heaters can also be used for heating crude oil. Standard pre-assembled packages include coil, heater and fuel gas system and have rated capacities up to 4.0 MM BTU/hr.
