Why There is a Need For Pipe Supporting?

Be The First To Comment
The Piping Profile in general can be considered as a complex and rigid piping network consisting of various piping components, which have different diameters and weights. At the same time the above network is also subjected to temperature change while switching from installed to operating condition (and visa versa) resulting into its thermal growth in various directions in proportion to the length of pipes. The structural integrity of the above network must therefore take into account the overall weight effect of the profile besides its thermal growth. 

A satisfactory design of the Piping System should therefore give a careful consideration to achieve the above requirement. This is generally accomplished by providing external attachments (known as pipe supports) at various locations of the piping profile.

Be The First To Comment

General Pipe Routing Criteria

There are some criteria that optimize piping cost and proper functioning of system.

Ø Piping from source to destination should be as short as possible with minimum change in direction.

Ø Piping should not hinder any normal passage way also should not encroach any equipment maintenance space.

[PPT] Basics of Pump Piping

Be The First To Comment
The Pump Should Be Located As Close As Possible To The Source Of Suction.

The Main Reason For This Is To Minimize Pressure Drop. This Keeps Line Sizes And Equipment Elevations To A Minimum Due To Support Availability.
