Pipe Supports for Industrial Pipe Systems

As mandated by the ASME code for pressure piping, proper design and installation is critical for the performance and safety of piping systems. Industrial pipe systems are primarily supported by rod hangers, base line or base elbow supports. While these static supports are used to carry weight, dynamic supports are necessary to control loads on the pipe system.

For example, in heat exchanger applications, SPIROL® Disc Springs are used to accept thermal dynamics. As the temperature of the fluid within the pipe changes, the pipe will expand (when hot) and contract (when cold) accordingly. SPIROL® Disc Springs support the system by maintaining a constant pressure at any temperature. This consistency is transmitted to the pipe joint and is essential for maintaining a proper seal. A well sealed gasket prevents fluids from escaping and reduces costly maintenance.

SPIROL® Disc Springs offer an advantage to coil springs by providing an equivalent displacement in a fraction of the space. In many instances, such as under a heat exchangers bottom flange, this space savings is required. SPIROL® Disc Springs are the solution to providing a robust, maintenance free support system for industrial pipe systems.
