Accu. Bev Flex line smallest is 3/16 I.D. and a 5/16 O.D. anything smaller is made for water. I run the 1/4 x 1/4 fitting for my gas lines

1/4 = 4/16 > 3/16

I have 1/4 barrier tubing. Have not ran it ust. Still constructing. But it is a 25ft gustom made insulated truck line. The beer lines are 1/4 ang glycol are 3/8

3/8 x 1/4 flare for the beer lines need to know how your attaching the glycol lines guess 1/2 tube x 1/2 npt. need to know how many.

Wow, 1/4" ID and only 25'? In case you're not aware, the accuflex bev-seal ultra line has significantly less resistance than vinyl or poly lines.

Yea. I ran the numbers. The vertical distance is the reason. Kreezer is in the basement, tap is upstairs. I might have to add some restrictor lines, but the numbers did not work using 3/16

As for the glycol, dont need any fittings. So 1/4 tube od is 3/8s? So i could use 8 beer ones (1/4 flare x3/8)and 18 for gas, what is the best for gas? Thinking i want to use these on my regs and disconnects. Will make cleaning a lines that i backflowed easy. I assume they make flares that i can screw into ball valves after my secondary regs. I have not ordered my gas line yet. What size barrier tubing is best for gas?
