Pipe Supports and Hangers
Pipe supports and hangers are devices that transfer loads from the pipe or the structural attachment to the supporting structure or equipment. They include rod hangers, spring hangers, sway braces, turnbuckles, struts, anchors, saddles, rollers, brackets, and sliding supports. Structural attachments are elements that are welded, bolted, or clamped to the pipe, such as clips, lugs, clamps, clevises, and stops.
The pipe is held either from above by hangers or supports of various types on which it rests. Hangers are also referred to as supports.
There are a number of typical pipe supports that can be installed to support dead weight loads, and restrain the pipe for thermal and dynamic loads.
A pipe is rested on or secured to a support member usually of a standard structural shape (I-beam, wide flange beam, angle, channel. etc.) The pipe may be secured to this member by means of pipe support.
The correct and economical selection of the supports for any piping system usually presents difficulties of varying degrees, some relatively minor and others of a more critical nature. Proper support selection should be the objective of all phases of design and construction.
Support locations are dependent on many considerations, such as pipe sizing, piping configuration, the location of heavy valves and fittings, and the structure that is available for support.
