.: PIPE SUPPORT SURVEY :.
We review existing pipe supports, restraints, spring supports, strut rods, hydraulic snubbers, low friction sliders, etc, and their attachment to structures. We will specify needed replacements and/or improvements.
.: Older Piping Systems (Especially in Corrosive and/or High Temperature Environments)
.: Piping Systems with Piping/Equipment Alignment Problems
SYMPTOMS OF PIPE SUPPORT PROBLEMS
.: Broken Supports or Restraints
.: Spring supports Bottomed or Topped Out
.: Sagging or Bowed Piping
.: Piping Not Resting on Its Supports
PIPE SUPPORT SURVEY DETAILS
We review existing piping supports and restraints, with emphasis on mechanical items such as spring supports, strut rods, hydraulic snubbers, low friction sliders, etc, and their attached structures. We will specify needed replacements and/or improvements. These pipe support surveys are very beneficial to older systems because once these mechanical items stop working; piping stresses and piping loads on equipment significantly increase. As a result, rotating equipment can experience increased vibrations and excessive bearing and seal wear, piping and vessels can experience leaking flanges or cracks, and low points can develop in piping spans that will now hold liquid and create the potential for corrosive attack.
