1.4 SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

15060-3

A. Contractor General Requirements:


1. Incorporate in construction pipe hangers and supports to manufacturers
recommendations utilizing manufacturers regular production components, parts and
assemblies.
2. Comply with maximum load ratings with consideration for allowable stresses
prescribed by ASME B31.1 or MSS SP-58.
3. Provide supports, guides and anchors that do not transmit unacceptable heat and
vibration to building structure.
4. The selection of pipe hangers and supports shall be based upon the overall design
concept of the piping systems and any special requirements, which may be called for
in the specifications. The support systems shall provide for, and control, the free or
intended movement of the piping including its movement in relation to that of
connected equipment. (Extracted from ANSI/MSS-SP69, 2003, Page 1, Section 4.2,
with permission of the publisher, the Manufacturers Standardization Society.)
5. Provide for vertical adjustments after installation of supported material and during
commissioning, where feasible, to ensure pipe is at design elevation and slope.

B. Selection of Hangers and Supports for Pipe Movement:


1. Select hangers and supports to perform under all conditions of operation, allowing
free expansion and contraction, and to prevent excessive stresses being introduced
into piping system and connected equipment.
2. Angularity of rod hanger resulting from horizontal movement of the piping system from
cold to hot positions shall not to exceed 4 degrees from vertical.
3. Where horizontal pipe movement is greater than 1/2 inch (12.7 mm), offset pipe
hanger and support so that rod hanger is vertical in hot position.
4. Where significant vertical movement of the pipe occurs at the hanger location, a
resilient support must be used. Selection of resilient supports shall be based on
permissible load variation and effects on adjacent equipment. Support selection for
typical load variations are shown in Table 2 of MSS-SP-69. Load and movement
calculations shall be made for the proper selection of spring hangers. Vertical
movement and load transfer from riser expansion to horizontal runs shall be given
consideration when applying spring hangers.
Spring Cushion Hangers may be used where vertical movement does not exceed 1/4
inch (6 mm), and where formal load and movement calculations are not required.
Variable spring Hangers shall be used for all other resilient support requirements.
Constant Support Hangers shall be used on piping systems where the deviation in
supporting force must be limited to 6 percent and which cannot be accommodated by
a Variable Spring Hanger.

inclusive, with permission of the publisher, the Manufacturers Standardization


Society.)

C. Hanger Spacing: (Extracted from ANSI/MSS-SP69, 2003, Page 8, Table 3, with


permission of the publisher, the Manufacturers Standardization Society.)

D. Pipe Attachments for Insulated Lines:


1. The connections to pipe attachments shall be outside the insulation so that movement
of the line shall not cause damage to the insulation.
Insulation protection shields shall be provided to protect the vapor barrier of the
insulation on cold lines. Under no circumstances shall hangers, supports or guides be
applied directly to horizontal pipe or tubing on vapor barrier lines.
For cryogenic piping systems, shields incorporating rigid, high-density polyurethane

15060-5

foam inserts or other load bearing insulation should be used. The support should
include means for maintaining vapor barrier integrity. Because of the
temperature/compressive strength relationship of polyurethane foam, the
recommended shield designs must be selected to accommodate loading conditions
at both the installation and operating temperature.

inclusive, with permission of the publisher, the Manufacturers Standardization
Society.)

1. (1) For calculated loads, rod diameters may be sized in accordance with MSS SP-58,
Table 3 provided Table 1 and Section 73 of MSS SP-58 are satisfied.
2. (2) Rods may be reduced one size for double rod hangers. Minimum rod diameter
shall be 3/8 inch (9.5 mm) (M10).
3. (3) Columns noted refer to Table 3.

F.

Anchors Guides and Restraints:


1. Anchors, guides and restraints shall be located by the Engineer responsible for piping
design. Should the need or the desirability of relocating, eliminating or adding
anchors, guides or restraints arise; such changes shall be brought to the attention of
the Engineer for consideration and approval.
Anchors, guides and restraints shall be designed for imposed loadings as determined
by the Engineer. For guided systems, in the absence of specified lateral loads, the
guide shall be designed for 20 percent of the dead weight load based on the spans
listed in Table 3, with a design load of 50 lb (0.22 kN) as a minimum.
For pressure piping with joints not having a restraining design, other positive
restraining means such as clamps, rods and/or thrust blocking shall be used to
maintain the integrity of the joints.
The necessity for, and the location of, shock suppressors and seismic control devices
shall be as determined by the Engineer responsible for piping design.
The location, type and number of corrective devices which may be necessary to
control any unforeseen vibrations, as determined after the piping is in service, are not
a part of this standard.
Refer to MSS SP-127 for the design, selection, and application of the bracing piping
systems subject to seismic wind dynamic loading.
