laboratory gas reticulation sizing

Hi there
what would be suggested guideline to follow for a gas reticulation in a laboratory environment to distribute gas consisting of Nitrogen Hydrogen, Argon and instrument air to the various lab equipment
the total instantaneous flow of Nitrogen is expected at 350 ml/min. Is max flow velocity the governing factor?
what formulas is recommended to calculate flow velocity and pressure loss? what is safe maximum flow velocities for gasses applicable.

thks for any assistance

RE: laboratory gas reticulation sizing

your choice of pipe ID is probably limited (or maybe its glass/silicone hoses?) i dont think you need to worry about sizing dP?
