For natural gas it is usual to limit the pressure loss to 75 Pa to 125 Pa from the gas meter to the point of use. Appliance pressure is 20 mbar.037 bar). Natural Gas Pipe Sizing Example Size the gas supply pipe shown below.46 (copper) for natural and LPG pipe sizing.CIBSE method of Gas Pipe Sizing Use CIBSE guide Table C4.76 of the CIBSE guide.45 (steel) and C4. A maximum pressure drop from meter to appliance of 1millibar (100 Pa) can be used. Use the maximum pressure drop given above of 100 Pa from meter to appliance. If LPG is used then refer to correction factors on page C4. Most domestic natural gas appliances operate at a pressure of 20 millibar (0. Copper pipework is used.
