What is the best way to cut TracPipe® CounterStrike®?

Use a standard tubing cutter. When you are installing the larger diameters it will become necessary to purchase the larger cutting wheel in order to handle the larger sizes.

How do you size TracPipe® CounterStrike®?

TracPipe® CounterStrike® is sized with the same method as black iron gas piping. The only difference is the sizing chart that is used. Charts specifically designed for TracPipe® CounterStrike® or its designated EHD flow capacities must be used. These charts are found in the back of the TracPipe® CounterStrike® Design and Installations Guide. Three pieces of information are required to size a gas piping system. These are distances of piping runs, appliance loads, and supply pressure.
