General Notes:

Note: Refer to the "Terms and Conditions" in the 'About' section before using the software.
1) Line Sizing Calculator is a software program that can be used to estimate the line sizes on a piping system, based on flow                       condition.

2) The fluid inside the piping needs to be a single phase liquid or vapour / gas.

3) Pipe sizes vary from NPS 1/2 (DN 15) nominal diameter to NPS 48 (DN 1200)) nominal diameter.
Pipe sizes are taken from ANSI / ASME 36.10M.

4) Typical recommended velocity limits are as follows (per API RP14E - edition - old)

Liquids: Minimum Velocity - 3 ft/s ; Maximum Velocity - 15 ft/s (general guidance)
Reciprocating Pumps : 1 - 2 ft/s (suction); 3 - 6 ft/s (discharge) (based on rpm)
Centrifugal Pumps: 2 - 3 ft/s (suction); 6 - 9 ft/s (discharge)

Vapor / Gas: Maximum Velocity - 60 ft/s

5) The program does not check for choked flows.

6) The program should not be used for high Mach number flows.

7) If you notice any error, please let us know, so that can be rectified.
