Frequently Asked Questions

Why can't I specify pipe supports the "old way"?

Weld-on supports represent heat sink conditions with resulting energy loss. Expensive like materials, welding and inspection procedures are often required on high temperature alloy steel pipe to minimize the likelihood of stress corrosion and to assure a sound weld. Available standard catalog hangers may not permit the maximization of support spacing and the resulting minimization of the number of supports required on the job - possible with the use of pre-insulated pipe supports. Today's light density fiberglass insulation has insufficient compressive strength to support most pipe loads without crushing out - often requiring the contractor to be innovative at each support point. Load rated insulated pipe supports offer an appropriate and economic solution.
