Line Sizing Calc Guide
Factors to consider include:
 Economics (capital cost, energy)
 Pressure frop
 Velocity
 Turbulence
 Length of pipe run
 Pipe run components
 Noise
 Space
 Plant expansion
 Pump/compressor capability
Pressure Drop/Velocity
Guidelines
Service velocity, pressure drop,
ft / sec PSI / 100 ft
Pump Suct., General Service, low visc. ----- 0.5 to 1.0
Pump Suct., Gen. Serv., near boiling pt. ----- 0.2 to 0.4
Pump Discharge, General Service ----- 1.0 to 3.0
WFI / USP Water, 1" to 1 1/2" 2 to 4 1 to 4
WFI / USP Water, 2" to 4" 3 to 7 1 to 3
CIP Solutions, 1/2" to 1 1/2" 2 to 5 1 to 4
CIP Solutions, 2" to 3" 3 to 7 1 to 3
Compressed Air / N2, 15 psig ----- 0.25 to 0.5
Compressed Air / N2, 50 psig ----- 0.5 to 1.0
Compressed Air / N2, 100 psig ----- 1.0 to 2.0
Saturated Steam, 15 psig ----- 0.5 to 1.0
Saturated Steam, 50 psig ----- 0.5 to 1.0
Saturated Steam, 100 psig ----- 1.0 to 2.0

R e =

Q = flowrate, gpm
f = a function of
ρ = density, lb/cf
Reynolds Number and
Relative Roughness; see m = viscosity, cp

∆P =

ε = 0.000005 for drawn tubing
Line Sizing Guidelines
Maximum flow rate of 7-8 ft/sec
Maximum pressure drop of 2 lb per 100
feet
 Evaluate the “Equivalent Length”
Minimum flow rate
 3 ft/sec
 Turbulent flow (Reynolds Number > 3000 is
turbulent. >10,000 – 15,000 is preferred)
Line Loses - Equivalent
Length
Typically done when you can only
estimate the linear footage of the
system
Other resistances to be considered
include manual valves, elbows, tees,
reducers, entrances/exits, etc.
Difficult to tabulate the resistances at
this stage of design
Rule of thumb - allow the equivalent
length to be twice the linear footage for
the purpose of the initial pump head
calculation
