What are the spacing of steel pipe supports?

As a rule of thumb, the spacing of pipe supports for steel pipes in liquid service, expressed in feet, may be taken as the nominal pipe size, expressed in inches, plus ten. For example, the spacing of pipe supports on a 6″ line will be approximately 6 + 10 = 16 feet.

What should the spacing be for copper tubing?

For example, for copper tubing, support spacing varies from 8-ft for 1″ tubing to 12-ft for 4″. For PVC pipe the spacing depends on the pipe schedule and operating temperature. The span is 4-ft for %” pipe up to 6-ft for 4″ schedule 40 pipe at ambient temperature; approximately 1-ft more for schedule 80,…

What are the tolerances for allowable pipe spans?

Allowable Pipe Span Datasheet Spans are based on using carbon steel pipe (A53-GR.B) filled with water. Spans are based on 12 1/2% mill tolerance and.065″ correction tolerance. Spans are based on insulated and uninsulated lines below 650°F.
