METALLIC PIPELINE SUPPORTS ARE AN IMPORTANT SYSTEM ELEMENT
The structural system of the pipeline implies a support, supporting the pipes. The load for the support is the pipeline and the substance transported along it, temperature, external, other factors. It is the support of the pipeline that is the guarantor of the long-term uninterrupted functioning of the communication system. Supports are designed and produced in accordance with standards GOST 2.09.03-85 and 41-02-2003.
REQUIREMENTS OF THE PRODUCTION PROCESS FOR SUPPORTS
Depending on the type of a work, passing through the main pipe system, the purposes of using supports, steel is used to produce them. Here are the following types of steel that are used: • stainless; • heat resistant; • low alloy.
Metal supports that are made of carbon steel are one of the economy options for producing products. However such support elements can not be used with pipeline systems, which operating in a high temperature conditions.
The production of pipeline supports is a complex multi-faceted process. It is important to carefully follow each production stage, select the right material for the construction of metal structures, all work using modern equipment. Consumables should have corrosion resistance (galvanic processed) and durability.
VARIETY OF PIPELINE SUPPORT
Our company can produce the following supports:
- movable type – tend to slide, which acts as a guarantee of effective absorption of temperature deformation in the supply system;
- fixed type – cope with large volumes of loads of a horizontal type. The installation of special compensators allows you to prevent the longitudinal deformation of trestles under the affection of sharp temperature changes. The supports of this type can differ in form factors;
• non-standard supports – depending on the specific operation, supports of a certain type may be needed. We can develop a project, make supports of given shapes.Sliding supports of mobile type are widely used in ground and underground supply systems.
