Pipe Alignment Guides

Figure: 670 - 678

Function

Designed for use with insulated or non-insulated pipe lines to direct the axial expansion and contraction of the pipe. The use of two or more guides on both sides of the expansion joint is recommended to avoid a pivoting effect. The first pipe guide should be placed a maximum of 4 pipe diameters from an expansion joint. Pipe guides are not designed to support any of the piping system’s weight, therefore additional supports are required. The maximum operating temperature should not exceed 750 F.

Pipe Saddles For 1″, 1-1/2″, 2′, 2-1/2″, 3″ & 4″ Insulation

Figure: 651 - 658

Function

Designed to protect insulation on high temperature pipe lines. The saddle is furnished with notches to minimize surface contact with the pipe, thereby keeping heat loss to a minimum.

Pipe Slide Assembly

Figure: 690

Function

Designed to be welded directly to the pipe to allow for support from below and allow for horizontal movement with a low coefficient of friction. The assembly consists of a carbon steel tee with a polished stainless bottom which rests on a PTFE (glass filled teflon) plate, bonded to a carbon steel plate. The base plate configuration will vary with the Type selected.

MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE: 200°F (93°C) at the sliding surface.

Greater height dimensions, longer transverse and longitudinal movements, and other customer requirements can be supplied upon request.
