(MIN) STANDARD METER TUBE LENGTHS PER AGA/API 14.

3 - 2000
No Conditioner or Vane
Upstream lengths (UL) are based on the largest expected published I.D. for a given size and
rounded up to nearest inch at 44D. Downstream lengths exceed the minimum recommended
minimum length. All downstream lengths (DL) are complete with (2) each 1/2" and (1) 3/4"
threadolet or coupling, spaced 6 apart.
