Resistance and Equivalent Length of Fittings

Equivalent length of fittings like bends, returns, tees and valves in hot water heating systems - equivalent length in feet and meter

Equivalent length of common fittings like

  • elbows - regular 90o, long radius 90o, regular 45o
  • tees - line flow and branch flow
  • return bends - regular and long radius
  • valves - globe, gate, angle and swing check
  • strainers

in hot water piping systems are indicated in the tables below.
