The variable pipe supports (also referred to as variable spring hangers) offered by Radcoflex Australia have been specifically formulated to support pipes at points that are subject to vertical movement.
These variable pipe supports are suited to general use on non-critical piping systems or to critical systems where the vertical movements are small (usually up to 50 mm).A variable support gives a supporting force which varies with the deflection of the support spring. The support consists of a coil spring fitted inside a steel casing, and is fitted with a spring deflection scale. Travel stops are an optional extra feature.
Radcoflex variable supports meet the requirements of ANSI Code for Pressure Piping ANSI B31.10.
Other features of these variable supports include:
- Carbon steel with red zinc chromate finish.
- Corrosive resistant models hot dip galvanized.
- Manufactured in three figure numbers (models) with seven types in each, and 21 sizes of each configuration.
- These range can accommodate loads from 0.22 to 125 kN.
