Unit I: Legends,
SUPPORTING PIPELINE RUNS
All pipe runs, whether vertical or horizontal, must be supported in place. The pipe run's length, location, and joints will determine the kind of support to use and where to use it. The building material and type of pipe will also determine the kind of support to use.
Kinds of Pipe Hangers and Supports
The following illustration shows a sample of hangers and supports.
Methods of Supporting Vertical Pipe
Vertical pipe must be supported to keep it in a straight, vertical position. The method of support is determined by the location of the pipe run and joists.
Methods of Supporting Horizontal Pipe
Horizontal pipes must be supported to keep them in line and prevent sagging. The method and location of support is determined by the type of pipe and location of the pipe runs.
