Re: Pipe Supports (Tee type)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


Other than possibly some P-Delta effects on your pipe support the limiting drift is generally a requirement of the piping system.  If this is primarily a straight run pipe it may not be a big issue, however, if the pipe turns down and connects to a piece of equipment (i.e. pump, compressor, etc.) then you may be introducing excessive loads into the pipe flange connection.  You should seek drift limits from whoever is designing the piping system.

Pipe Supports (Tee type)

Dear all,

This is regarding design of Pipe Stanchions (Steel structure)
supporting heavy pipes at certain elevations.

                For supporting the individual pipes, generally Tee type (cantilever
column) of Pipe Stanchions are used. As the stanchions are flexible in
both the directions, lateral deflection at the top of the stanchion
may be quite high as compared to the pipe displacement. Hence, are
there any limits or general guidelines (say above 7.0m) that above the
particular height Frame type of stanchion should be used.
