Pipe line sizing compressed air
Recommended sizes for compressed air pipe lines:
Based on line presssure 90 psig (620 kPa, 6.2 bar).
- 1 psig = 6.9 kPa = 0.069 bar
- 1 inch = 25.4 mm
- 1 ft (foot) = 0.3048 m
- 1 scfm = 0.472 nl/s
Air, LNG, LPG and other common gas properties, pipeline capacities, sizing of relief valves.
Pressure drop in compressed air pipelines with applied pressure 50, 100 and 150 psi.
