These guides are designed to control lateral pipe movement and maintain the alignment of the piping through its axial and contraction cycles. A single piping run uses multiple spider guides to avoid a fulcrum or an imposed lateral deflection on critical components.

Components of these guides include carbon steel plates, stock clamps, angles and hot-dipped galvanized pipes. The outer shields have diameters ranging from 6″ to 29-1/2″. The maximum design temperature for the spider guides is 750°F.

In addition to spider guides, over 40,000 lbs. of material were supplied for this project including variable springs, constants, and miscellaneous structural items.
