Gas line sizing

Recommended Posts

The photo below shows a main gas line coming in as a 3/8" pipe, and all of the distribution lines are 1/2". I've not been able to locate a listed requirement, but have always thought that 1/2" was standard for the main supply pipe. Any ideas?

Does everything work? I don't know for sure what the requirements are, but given the fact that the small line is on the supply side of the regulator maybe it's OK.

Higher pressures delivered through small tubing to a regulated low pressure, high volume manifold are pretty common in the machine world.

When did Phogg-horn Legg-horn get promoted to chief? What happened to the little chicken hawk?

Robert,

I never saw a set up like that. In fact, I still don't know what the heck I am looking at there. I would have them call the gas company. That regulator looks like something off of an old gravity solenoid system from the forties and fifties.

Hmmm,

You know George, I think you're right. I did a short stint as a heavy equipment mechanic for a factory one time and every one of those LP burning forklift and towmotor engines had a similar regulator. We had 'em on our propane tank in upstate Noo Yawk when I was a kid too.
