Support rings on horizontal sections : types and their purpose

Advantages support rings

The well proven and why these rings for laying pipes need to use them?

support ring

  • pipe laying easier.This occurs by reducing the coefficient of friction, which means that damage to the pipe coating will be prevented.
  • Large selection of sizes of cross ribs.
  • high level of insulating qualities.Protection pipe is at the proper level.
  • Increasing the life of the pipeline.

Thus, using the support rings on the horizontal sections, we will not only solve the problem of leaks butt moments, but also solve the question regarding the safety of the pipe itself as a whole, that is important.This is especially true of long horizontal sections, where banal attraction over time will create an emergency situation, if the tube is not further consolidated.In addition, such a ring must have full electrical insulation.

types of support rings

Consider the main types of support rings.Since the pipes are different, and the rings can vary in diameter, functionality, material and so on.Indicators of external diameter.

  1. plastic support ring.Plastic supporting ring most simple.Suitable for outer diameter from 25 mm up to 336. The set is usually always go nuts and bolts for mounting.Of course the product is made of two half-rings.Easy installation.
  2. Plastic diametra.V ring more generally the same as the first, with the difference of their diameters - from 98 mm up to 385. Additional materials (bolts, nuts, fasteners) are usually sold in the same package with the ring itself.It consists of two parts, half rings.
  3. Universal support ring.Universal support ring All its charm is not only easy installation, but also the diameter of complexity.That is, the ring may be used by 400 mm.This allows the external system clamping ranges.
  4. Such rings, as in the photo below, are used by 402 mm.It is necessary to pay special attention to the edges of the ring - their height can vary depending on your choice.The support ring (use of 402mm )
  5. For pipes with high weight indicators, with a diameter of 500 mm.The support ring (using 500 mm)

Mounting support rings

Mount supporting ring on the horizontal sections is very simple and is not as difficult as it might seem at first.Of the tools we did not need anything custom.It is worth noting that in each set is a separate table sizes, which greatly simplifies the task of mounting.Do not forget one important fact - the tube in contact with the support ring must be treated with protective tape.This would avoid such an unpleasant moment when slipping.Furthermore, the application of the tape increases the level of adhesion of the pipe and the ring.Buy it possible to separate, but sometimes it comes.In any case, it is better to clarify this question during the purchase, in such a situation, you can immediately pick up the necessary tape, if it is not complete.Calculation of support rings mounted on different pipes as follows:

  • 2.5 mm for pipe diameters up to 33 mm.
  • 2.0 mm for pipes with diameters of 400 to 600 mm.
  • 1.5 mm for pipe diameters of more than 600 mm.

In other cases, the payment takes place individually, and you probably can not do without the help of experts, although in the field of counseling and advice.
