Gas Line Sizing Tables for NATURAL GAS
For your convenience see below for an excerpt from gas line sizing tables for a single NG appliance. For details see the current NFPA 54.
Specified pipe lengths are for one 940 ESO, which has a maximum input rating of 199,000 BTUs. The gas supply system must be sized for the combined
total maximum BTU/hr load requirements of all gas appliances running simultaneously.
The tables below show the maximum capacity of the gas supply pipe in cubic feet per hour. Please contact your local gas supplier for the energy content
of the gas to determine the BTU/hr capacity. Use 1,000 BTU/cubic foot for rough estimations.
Maximum pipe capacity in cubic feet of Natural Gas per hour for gas pressures of 14" W.C. (0.5 psig) or less and a pressure drop of 0.3" W.C.
(0.75mbar) based on 0.60 specific gravity gas).

* EHD = Equivalent Hydraulic Diameter. The greater the value of EHD, the
greater the gas capacity of the tubing.
