Are light duty clamps for gas service and heavy duty for liquid service?

May 16, 2014

The clamps are distinguished by their load rating. In some cases, gas service loads could be less than loads in liquid service for the same pipe size. This would allow you to use a light duty clamp.

What are cradle clamps?

February 11, 2011

A cradle clamp support refers to a shoe type support which you do not weld directly to the pipe but rather use a bolted configuration instead of a welded configuration.

How does one mount a pipe to the floor?

February 10, 2011

There are numerous ways to mount a pipe to the floor including using u-bolts, hold-down pipe clamps, or pipe shoes. The most applicable of these options depends upon the use of the support whether it be as a load carrying member, guide or anchor.


Hold-Down Pipe Clamp

What is a riser clamp?

February 1, 2011

A riserclamp is a pipe clamp for thesupport of vertical pipelines, and they include separate load bolts, totransfer the piping load to the remainder of the pipe hanger assembly.

How is vertical piping suspended?

November 2, 2010

The most common method for supporting vertical piping would be to first weld shear lugs into position, and then utilize a riser clamp which straddles the pipe. The load is then transferred by the riser clamp’s load bolts through hanger rod connections to our supporting structure.

How do I inspect a spring support?

Use this 10-point operational integrity check list when inspecting spring supportsin the field:

  • Beam attachment
  • Beam attachment pin
  • Spring hanger attachment
  • Load flange movement
  • Spring coil corrosion
  • Check load indication for hot load
  • Note load deviations
  • Turnbuckle/locknuts
  • Threaded rod/weldless eye, hex nuts
  • Pipe clamp attachment pin
For more information, or assistance with accomplishing this check-list in the field, please see our field services page.

97" Diameter, 3-Piece Pipe Clamps for a Refinery in Ponca City

97" Diameter, 3-Piece Pipe Clamps for a Refinery in Ponca City

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. fabricated 3-piece pipe clamps used to support 97″ diameter stainless steel duct work. This duct work is being added to a refinery for an expansion project in Ponca City, Oklahoma. Each section of the clamp assembly is formed from a continuous plate and gussets are added at each of the bolt locations for increased strength and rigidity. Due to the ducts having a relatively thin wall, these clamps are designed wider than necessary in an effort to reduce localized stresses on the duct work. The lower section of each clamp is formed to create a 150° cradle. This acts as a cradle by supporting the duct without inducing extra pressure, which might cause the duct wall to buckle or bend.

The upper sections are formed from 1/2″ thick by 12″ wide bar stock, whereas the lower sections are formed from 1/2″ thick by 18″ wide. All three sections are rolled to an inner radius of 48 1/2″ and the welded gusset plates are all 1/2″ thick. The upper sections are formed at 105° each, and the upper load bolt is 2″ in diameter while the six clamping bolts are 1 1/2″ in diameter.

The maximum load to be carried by these pipe clamps is 16,888 lb. Each pipe clamp will be used in conjunction with a variable spring support to accommodate movements as high as 2 1/4″.
