Impulse Tubing Installation:

Impulse lines for remote device should be as short as possible, 3 feet for close-coupled transmitters and preferable not more than 20 feet (6 meters). For liquid measurement the lines should slope down at least 1 inch per foot from the orifice taps.

Tubing: Stainless steel tubing shall seamless, annealed, minimum wall thick 1.24 mm as per ASTM A269 Gras IP – 316L.

Impulse Tubing Installation Tips:

Slop of Impulse tubing: Minimum of 1inch for every 1 meter towards tapping point.

Bend: Minimum bends length around 70 mm.

Test Pressure of Impulse Line: 1.5 Times of the working pressure with 3 minute.

Instrument Tubing size: ½ inch x 0.89 mm (wall thickness) = 0.035 Inches.


Piping and Impulse tubing shall be support as follows:
