Pipe Support

Pipe Supports (also known as Spring Hangers) are used to accommodate the three components of pipe movement generally resulting from thermal influences by applying a supporting force throughout the expansion and contraction cycle of the piping system.

There are two basic styles of pipe support:
Constant – used to prevent the transfer of the load of the weight of the pipe to connected equipment, attached pipework or adjacent supports.
Variable – used to provide a supporting force which will vary as the pipe position changes.

Radcoflex pipe supports are manufactured in Australia to standards accumulated from over one hundred years experience. We are the subsidiary of Australian manufacturers of industrial pipe supports.

Maximum recommended load ratings for supports have been established by thorough testing and based on the minimum safety factor of 4 or the allowable stresses specified in the American National standards Institute’s code of pressure piping.

Radcoflex is continually co-operating with engineers in the preparation of specifications covering pipe support requirements and the interpretation of applicable codes.

Radcoflex Pipe Supports are used in conjunction with our Radcoflex Expansion Joints to provide a comprehensive solution to pipe movement issues.
