Appropriate estimation of the size enables the system to keep the minimum pressure drop required. Overloading natural gas pipelines with equipment is not secure and effective because it can cause pressure problems, leading to gas leakage or equipment failure. Some houses are just fitted with natural gas pipelines with a 3/4-inch diameter because this is the standard size to support the leading equipment. Other places may have a combination of 1 inch, 1/2 inch, and 3/4-inch gas pipeline. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
