Pipe Supports

CONSTANT EFFORT SUPPORTS

Our products have been designed to give an optimal performance in a minimal space.

Characteristics:

  • A minimum of + 20% site load adjustment is available
  • Travel indicator
  • Lever rotation indicator
  • Load adjustment facility
  • Ultimate stop
  • Infinitely variable locking/balancing device
  • Variable position load pin carrier
  • Bearings
  • Testing’s

 

VARIABLE EFFORT SUPPORTS


They are used to support the weight of pipework or equipment whilst allowing a degree of movement relative to the supporting structure.
Characteristics:

  • Range: For loads from 3,43 kgf to 23265 kfg
  • Working ranges: From V1 up to V5, with 29 spring sizes within each travel range.

Support types:

  • Top suspended
  • Top adjustable
  • Extended support
  • Double support
  • Base mounted

 

DINAMYC RESTRAINTS

Our range of dynamic restraints includes rigid struts, stiff clamps, fixing brackets and snubbers.
The snubber is one of the most sophisticated snubbers available.

Features include:

  • Variable lock-up rate, identical in both directions of movement.
  • Thermal bleed facility to allow controlled creep after lock up.
  • Sophisticated seal design
  • Internal reservoir to prolong service and recharging periods.

 

STEELWORK


Our fabrication expertise enables us to supply any necessary secondary support steelwork.

 

TURNBUCKLE LOAD CELL


Designed to measure the static tension in a hanger rod. A very accurate device to enable setting of pipework supported by spring hangers, to retrospectively determine the load at a support position or to monitor the build-ip of load on ducts or other equipment in a heavily laden coal ash environment.

 

HIGH DENSITY POLIURETHANE FOAM


Widely used for cryogenic and LNG applications, HD PUF has unrivalled insulation properties combined with good load carrying capability. Utilising CFC free blowing agents to produce a “rigid” moulded product with a very low isocyanate index resulting in a virtually chloride free composition.
Components parts are moulded to precise dimensions and can be machined to incorporate thrust and torsion flanges. Cylindrical components are monolithically moulded in 180º segments. Where muli-layer systems are required we offer concentric, cylindrical components that match the layering thickness of the main insulation system.

 

CRYOGENIC LOAD-BEARING INSULATION


Isocast is a high density load-bearing insulation designed for cryogenic applications. The material has compressive and tensile strength to allow it to act as a support or anchor. Its insulating properties ensure that the temperature at the interface with the supporting steelwork is as near to ambient as possible.

COMLIN ISOLATION PRODUCTS


Available in a range hardnesss, these products are used when strength and economy is provided by carbon steel components; but dissimilar metal corrosion, crushing, abrasion, vibration and noise are avoided by an intermediate barrier of Comlin.

 

EASI-SLIDE BEARINGS


Easi-slide bearings minimize frictional forces between pipework and supporting elements. As well as the standard range, we supply special designs from glass filled and bronze filled PTFE to cater for high temperatures and/or high loads.
