Pipe Supports, sometimes known as Spring Hangers, are available from Radcoflex Australia . They are used to accommodate the three components of pipe movement which tend to result from thermal influences. They work by applying a supporting force throughout the expansion and contraction cycle of the piping system.
Radcoflex Pipe Supports are used in conjunction with Radcoflex expansion joints. Together they provide a solution to pipe movement problems.
There are two basic types of pipe supports available:
- Variable – These are used to provide a supporting force which varies as the pipe position changes.
- Constant – These are used to prevent the transfer of the load of the weight of the pipe to connected equipment, attached pipe work or adjacent supports.
