  Pex/plastic pipe have higher flow rates than copper. However pex fittings ID (inside diameter) is smaller than the pipe of the same size, so it actually does impede water flow. Wirsbo pipe on the other hand is expanded to fit around the fitting which has the same ID as the pipe. Wirsbo is the way to go in my opinion. Size Fittings 1 ⁄ 2" 3⁄ 4"1" 11⁄ 2 Friction Loss in Fittings Valves As an aid, liquid sizing constants (Cv values) are shown for valves. These values are defined as the flow rate through the valve required to produce a pressure drop of 1 psi. To determine the pres-sure drop for a given GPM the following formula may be used.

Fitting Pressure Loss. Find the equivalent feet of pipe to add to the pressure loss equation to calculate pressure losses in plastic IPS or copper type fittings. Learn more about the units used on this page. Fitting Type: Size: Number of Fittings: Equivalent Pipe Length: feet. WSU Prosser - IAREC, N Bunn Rd, Prosser WA ,   As sizes and pressures increase, they are often welded in place by either butt-weld or socket-weld methods. Socket-weld fittings, usually forged, are restricted to smaller pipe diameters (up to NPS 4, but usually NPS 2 or smaller) and are available in , , and class pressure ratings, corresponding to Sched 80, and pipe.

Determining frictional losses through fittings Dynamic, or friction, head is equal to the sum of the straight-run headloss and the fittings headloss. The fittings headloss is calculated by what is known as the k-value method. Each type of valve, bend, and tee has .

Fittings such as elbows, tees and valves represent a significant component of the pressure loss in most pipe systems.

This article details the calculation of pressure losses through pipe fittings and some minor equipment using the equivalent length method.

The strength of the equivalent length method is that it is very simple to calculate. The weakness of the equivalent length method is that. Summary. Fittings such as elbows, tees, valves and reducers represent a significant component of the pressure loss in most pipe systems.

This article details the calculation of pressure losses through pipe fittings and some minor equipment using the K-value method, also known as the Resistance Coefficient, Velocity Head, Excess Head or Crane method. A common goal is to size the Suction, Hot Gas and Liquid • System design for MINIMUM pressure drop.

Pressure loss results in: a. decrease in thermal capacity b. increase power requirements Supports for Copper Tubing ASHRAE Guide and Data Book {{ Maximum allowable hanger distance as per CSA B52 code.

For instance, a 1-inch diameter copper elbow causes the same amount of pressure drop as 3 feet of 1-inch copper pipe. Table 1 shows equivalent lengths of some common fittings used in pumping systems.

Fittings made from different materials have varying pressure drops, so be sure to use the table for the type of fittings in your system, i.e. 5 ABS Plus® Foam Core DWV Pipe ABS Plus Schedule 40 DWV Pipe (For Non-Pressure Applications) APA 1 1⁄ 2” x 10’ APA 1 1⁄ 2” x 20’ APA 2 ” x 10’ You will need a chart to be able to tell you what the size is with this one.

Step 3 - Fitting. Something that you can do specifically with copper pipe is to measure it by getting one pipe and inserting it into a fitting and then marking one of the ends. This can give you a more accurate measurement than a tape measure.

So, your intuition about the ID is correct. is smoother and has fewer fittings, so the codes accept PEX on a size for size basis with copper.

If you can use 1/2 in. copper, you can use 1/2 in. PEX and expect the same or a better flow. In fact, you can often drop a size with PEX, although the savings are minimal and I wouldn't bother. Calculate friction losses for fittings and valves in a section of pipe expressed in equivalent length of pipe (in feet).

Example: Your section of 2" pipe has 2 x gate valves, 2 x 90° elbows, 4 x straight true tee's and 12 branch tee's Select 2" for nominal pipe size and enter 2 gate valves, 2 90° elbows, 4 straight true tee's and 12 branch tee's. Measure the Outside Diameter (OD) of your pipe or pipe fitting: Wrap a string around the pipe; Mark the point where the string touches together; Use a ruler or measuring tape to find the length between the tip of the string and the mark you made (circumference) Divide the circumference by ; 2.

Example: Determine L (friction loss in pipe fittings in terms of equivalent length in feet of straight pipe). Assume a 6" angle valve for Schedule 40 pipe size. Select the appropriate K value for such and select D and f for Schedule 40 pipe from the table below where K is the pipe diameter in feet.

Pipe Size Inches Sch. 40 D feet f Pipe Size Inches. economical copper pipe installation systems that use modern cold press connection technology for a wide assortment of more than fittings in dimensions ranging from 1/2" to 4".

Applications Tubing: K, L and M hard copper tubing from 1/2" to 4" and soft copper tubing in 1/2" to /4" diameters.

All tubing must comply with the ASTM B88 standard. Loss of head is incurred by fluid mixing which occurs at fittings such as bends or valves, and by frictional resistance at the pipe wall. Where there are numerous fittings and the pipe is short, the major part of the head loss will be due to the local mixing near the fittings.

For a long pipeline, on the other hand, skin friction at the pipe wall. The PEX design guide illustrates the loss of pressure per gal/m per feet. That would be regardless of the size of the pipe after the manifold, as long as that pipe was carrying GPM.

If the distance to the manifold is 25 feet, figure /4 = PSI drop at the manifold from where you are measuring your 70 PSI. Find the Right Fitting for the Job. With a full range of materials and applications, NIBCO has the right fittings to get the job done.

It is beneficial to minimize the amount of bends in a run of pipe. If a large number can not be avoided, stepping up to the next larger pipe size will help compensate for the restrictions.
