Pipe Alignment Guides
Figure: 670 - 678
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 (399° C).
Material: Carbon steel
Install: The use of non-insulated guides with expansion joints shall be controlled by the recommendation of the expansion joint manufacturer (or in accordance with the Expansion Joint Manufacturers Association (EJMA) guidelines).
Ordering: Specify figure number and pipe size.
