Support spacing recommendations are based on straight runs of uninsulated lines conveying fluids with specific gravities up to 1.0.
Heavy system components such as valves, flanged assemblies, tees and other forms of concentrated stress loads must be independently supported.
For specific gravities greater than 1.0, the support spacing from the table provided should be multiplied by the following correction factors:
Maximum Support Spacing (ft.) Schedule 80
Support Spacing for 6-in. Diameter, Schedule 80 Thermoplastic Systems
Maximum Support Spacing (ft.) Schedule 40
Pipe Hangers, Clamps and Supports
Horizontal Piping Hangers and Supports
Corzan® piping should not be anchored tightly to supports, but rather secured with smooth straps or hangers that allow for movement caused by expansion and contraction. Hangers should not have rough or sharp edges which come in contact with the pipe.
Vertical Piping Hangers and Supports
Vertical runs of Corzan pipe should be supported by pipe clamps or by hangers located on the horizontal connection close to the riser. Hangers and straps that do not distort, cut or abrade the piping should be utilized.
Maintain vertical piping in straight alignment with supports at each level, plus mid-story guide for pipe sizes 2-in. and smaller, or as specified by the design engineer to allow for expansion/contraction.
