Customer Question

I amm installing gas dryers in my apartments and have 2 elbows and 20ft long solid 4inch pipe but local code allows only 15ft without fan. Is there a already dryer equipped with a built in fan over 160 cfm that I can pass code

Most dryers are at the max with 9 feet of tubing and 2 elbos totaling 15 feet You lose 3 feet per elbo.

Good news they make inline booster fans to compensate for the longer runs of pipe.

Here is a website so You can see what they look like and price for>
