Sizing calculation of medical gases pipeline systems
The dimensioning of a medical gas pipeline system is extremely important to ensure medical fluids are delivered to the patient with perfect parameters such as flow and pressure, without altering the fluid quality. GAZ SYSTEMES has the tools and the knowledge to size these pipeline systems as per the international standards such as HTM02-01, EN 7396-1 and NFPA 99.
The first step for calculating the dimension of a medical gas pipeline system is to lay down the terminal units in all the various locations: Inpatient wards, Emergencies, Operating Rooms, Maternity, Radiology, Critical Care Units etc.
Once all terminal units are located, it will be possible to evaluate the diversified flow of each section of the medical pipe. Once the diversified flow and length of a same portion of pipe are known, a pressure loss will be determined. The idea is to always keep a reasonable pressure loss of less than 5% between the plant room and the most remote terminal unit.
