    trac pipe sizing

    I got a propane oven to Install it's pretty big 35,000 BTU's and I'm not sure if a 3/4 track pipe would be big enough since I would have to pull it about 120 ft. Since it's my first commercial install I just want to be sure.

    who are you and what do you do? there is a specific sizing chart to carry x amount of btu x distance. you would have to re-calc the line you are coming from and the point of connection.

    so you are using trec pipe, as you are not a plumber, dont know how to cut thread your own pipe?

    how will you suport the flexible trec pipe? what spacing and with what? what are you going to cut it with?

    When you took your TRAC pipe certification class they gave a TRAC pipe install manual. In that manual are all the charts you need to accurately size your pipe for your application. Don't use steel charts because they are different. If you've never taken the cert. class, then consider taking it before you start your install, it's worth it, and only about 2-4hrs.
