: : I need to run a stretch of gas line in my garage for
: : a gas dryer. There is already gas in the garage for
: : the central heat and the dryer is only located about
: : six or seven feet away. The furnace is fed by black
: : pipe coming into the garage with a shutoff valve
: : to which is connected the flex tubing going to the
: : furnace.
: : My question is, if I connect a tee downstream of the
: : valve and run a stretch of flex tubing over to the
: : gas dryer (I'll add an additional shutoff valve
: : just before going into the dryer) will I get enough
: : flow rate for the furnace and the dryer to run
: : properly? Or, should I put a tee in the black pipe
: : and run black pipe over to the dryer followed by a
: : shutoff valve just before the dryer?
: : I appreciate any suggestions here.....

: 1217.0 Required Gas Piping Size
: 1217.1 Where The Maximum Demand Does Not Exceed Two Hundred Fifty
: (250) Cubic Feet Per Hour (2 L/Sec.) And The Maximum Length Of Piping
: Between The Meter And The Most Distant Outlet Is Not Over Two Hundred Fifty
: (250) Feet (76 M), The Size Of Each Section And Each Outlet Of Any System Of Gas
: Piping Shall Be Determined By Means Of Table 12-3. Other Systems Within
: The Range Of Table 12-3 May Be Sized From That Table Or By Means Of The
: Methods Set Forth In Section 1217.3.
: 1217.2 To Determine The Size Of Each Section Of Pipe In Any System Within
: The Range Of Table 12-3, Proceed As Follows:
: (1) Measure The Length Of The Pipe From The Gas Meter Location To The
: Most Remote Outlet On The System.
: (2) In Table 12-3 Select The Column Showing That Distance, Or The Next
: Longer Distance If The Table Does Not Give The Exact Length.
: (3) Starting At The Most Remote Outlet, Find In The Vertical Column Just
: Selected The Gas Demand For That Outlet. If The Exact Figure Of Demand Is
: Not Shown, Choose The Next Larger Figure Below In The Column.
: (4) Opposite This Demand Figure, In The First Column At The Left In Table
: 12-3 Will Be Found The Correct Size Of Pipe.
: Fuel Piping 1217.2 - 1218.4
: (5) Using This Same Vertical Column, Proceed In A Similar Manner For
: Each Section Of Pipe Serving This Outlet. For Each Section Of Pipe,
: Determine The Total Gas Demand Supplied By That Section. Where Gas
: Piping Sections Serve Both Heating And Cooling Equipment And The
: Installation Prevents Both Units From Operating Simultaneously, Only The
: Larger Of The Two Demand Loads Need Be Used In Sizing These Sections.
: (6) Size Each Section Of Branch Piping Not Previously Sized By
: Measuring The Distance From The Gas Meter Location To The Most Remote
: Outlet In That Branch And Follow The Procedures Of Steps 2, 3, 4, And 5
: Note: Size Branch Piping In The Order Of Their Distance From The Meter
: Location, Beginning With The Most Distant Outlet Not Previously Sized.
: 1217.3 For Conditions Other Than Those Covered By Section 1217.1, Such As
: Longer Runs Or Greater Gas Demands, The Size Of Each Gas Piping System Shall
: Be Determined By Standard Engineering Methods Acceptable To The
: Administrative Authority And Each Such System Shall Be So Designed That
: The Total Pressure Drop Between The Meter Or Other Point Of Supply And Any
: Outlet When Full Demand Is Being Supplied To All Outlets, Will At No Time
: Exceed Five-Tenths (0.5) Inches (12.7 Mm) Water Column Pressure.
: 1217.4 Where The Gas Pressure May Be Higher Than Fourteen (14) Inches
: (355.6 Mm) Or Lower Than Six (6) Inches Of Water Column, Or
: When Diversity Demand Factors Are Used, The Design, Pipe, Sizing, Materials,
: Location, And Use Of Such Systems First Shall Be Approved By The
: Administrative Authority. Piping Systems Designed For Pressures Higher
: Than The Serving Gas Supplier'S Standard Delivery Pressure Shall Have Prior
: Verification From The Gas Supplier Of The Availability Of The Design Pressure.
: Systems Using Undiluted Liquefied Petroleum Gas May Be Sized Using Table
: 12-7 For Eleven (11) Inches (279.4 Mm) Water Column And In Accordance With
: The Provisions Of Sections 1217.1 And 1217.2.
