PIPELINE SUPPORTS

Supports must carry the weight of the pipeline and its fittings and contents. At the same time they must allow the line freedom of movement during expansion and contraction. The supports must be placed close enough together to keep the stress forces within the permissible limits. Figure : 4, shows two types of support called 'Brackets' or 'Hangers'. Note the rollers which allow the longitudinal movement of the pipe.
