Components of these Cylinder Pipe Guides (a.k.a. Spider Guides) include carbon steel plates, stock clamps, angles, and hot-dipped galvanized pipes. The Guides range in pipe size from 6″ to 16″. The maximum design temperature for the Spider Guides is 750ºF.
They 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.
