Natural Gas Regulator Sizing Calculators Programs, and Tools
In my earlier posts, I always encourage customers to call me, or our experienced staff to have their regulators sized for their applications. Every once in a while, a customer will ask for the links to the regulator sizing programs. For this reason, I am providing links to manufacturers' sites who offer programs, calculators, or sizing tools below. Please know, however, we still prefer to size our regulators the old-fashioned way. In other words, collect the information and message us, or call us at (303) 697-6701.
Natural Gas Regulator Sizing
Not all regulator manufacturers offer such tools – or they are not available at the time of this note [Belgas, Sensus (formerly Rockwell, Invensys, Equimeter), Honeywell (Elster American Meter)]. Of course, we cannot endorse the accuracy of any of these programs. In any case, before using the tools, you will likely be asked to provide:
- Gas Type
- Minimum Inlet Pressure (PSIG or " W.C.)
- Maximum Inlet Pressure (PSIG or " W.C.)
- Outlet Set Pressure (PSIG or " W.C.)
- Maximum Capacity Required (SCFH, BTU/H)
- Pipe Size
- Location (indoor or outdoor?)
- Perhaps more
