Process Piping - Supports and Components
In Process Piping - Supports and Components, you'll learn ...
- The necessary inputs and design steps for selecting pipe supports
- Various configurations of pipe racks and the layout requirements
- Common types of secondary pipe supports
- Guidelines for support spacing
All pipes irrespective of materials of construction have a self-weight based on diameter of pipe and wall thickness. Pipe supports, pipe hangers etc. are normally used to support pipe lines by suspending them from structural members or supporting pipe lines from the bottom where ever feasible.
Pipe lines not supported at regular intervals will lead to sagging, causing stress at welded joints, flanges etc., which may result in leaks & ultimately lead to failure or rupture in the line. Therefore it is essential to have a well-designed pipe layout and pipe supports / hangers for long trouble free service in the plant.
This 5-hour course provides guidance on the design, layout, selection and installation of pipe support systems.
This course is Part 7 of a 9-part series that covers the entire gamut of piping engineering in an easy-to-learn format. Each course in the series is stand-alone. Feel free to jump back and forth through the courses depending on your own knowledge and experience and your current needs. However, it is suggested that you complete the series in sequential order if you have limited knowledge of piping systems.
This course is intended for mechanical engineers, chemical engineers, piping engineers, control systems engineers, as well as civil, structural and electrical engineers who have a need or a desire to know more about piping components and systems. No prerequisite knowledge of the subject is required.
