Piping systems shall be of such size and ifhc installed as to provide a supply of gas sufficient to meet the maximum demand and supply gas to each appliance inlet at not less than the minimum supply pressure required by the appliance. Gas Igc Inlet Pressure 3. Most industry professionals are familiar with the I-Codes as the basis of laws and regulations in communities across the U.

Clothes dryer, Type 1 domestic. ICC instructors provide hands-on, practical problem-solving training and are available to teach on-site single or multiday courses. A nonprofit, public benefit corporation, ICC-ES does technical evaluations of building products, components, methods, and materials.

Initial supply jfgc of 8. The I-Codes, including this International Plumbing Code, are used in a variety of ways in both the public and private sectors.

It is founded on broad-based principles that make possible the use of new materials and new plumbing designs. Other approved engineering methods.

Where an additional appliance is to be served, the 20012 piping shall be checked to determine if it has adequate capacity for all appliance s served. Capacity at 2 gal. The total connected hourly load shall be used as the basis for pipe sizing, assuming that all appliances could be operating at full capacity simultaneously.

Capacity at 6 gal. This chapter shall govern the design, installation, modification and maintenance of piping systems. Piping, tubing and fittings shall either be tested by an approved third-party testing agency or certified by an approved third-party certification agency.

Each length of pipe and tubing and each pipe fitting, utilized in a fuel gas system, shall bear the identification of the manufacturer.

Less than 2 psi.

Piping from multiple meter installations shall be marked with an approved permanent identification by the installer so that the piping system supplied by each meter is readily identifiable. However, the impact of the codes extends well beyond the regulatory arena, as they are used in a variety of nonregulatory settings.

This code is founded on principles intended to establish provisions consistent with the scope of a plumbing code that adequately protects public health, safety and welfare; provisions that do not unnecessarily increase construction costs; provisions that do not restrict the use ifcg new materials, products or methods of construction; and provisions that do not give preferential treatment to particular types or classes of materials, products or methods of construction.

Certification of building and construction-related products. Where Equations and are used to size piping or tubing, the pipe or tubing shall have smooth inside walls and the pipe length shall be determined in accordance with Section This edition presents the code as originally issued, with changes reflected in the through editions and with further changes approved by the ICC Code Development Process through When adopting a model code like the IFGC, some jurisdictions amend the code in the process to 22012 local practices and laws.
