Such detail as a support of the pipeline is an integral part of pipelines of different function:
- technological pipelines of the industrial enterprises;
- Thermal power plant and NPP;
- oil pipelines and gas pipelines;
- pipelines of engineering networks of housing and communal services.
At operation of pipelines there are axial, vertical, lateral (cross) loadings, and also torques. Support of pipelines are also applied to perception of these loadings. Support for steel pipelines are used at construction of technological pipelines for fastening of pipes from the low-alloyed and carbonaceous steel.
Support motionless - are applied to pipeline systems of elevated laying or to pipelines of underground bezkanalny laying. Motionless support have to hold a site of the pipeline and not allow it to move in any direction. By means of motionless support the pipeline is divided into sites to provide normal absorption of its linear lengthenings. These support besides perception of the vertical loading developing of weight actually of the pipeline, weight of the product transported on it and isolation, snow (ice) loading for external pipelines, also perceive the big horizontal loadings arising at temperature deformations.
Mobile support of pipelines - support the pipeline, but do not interfere with its shifts from temperature deformations. Their mission - to perceive vertical loadings from the mass of the loaded pipeline. The support sliding - provide a possibility of thermal movement of the pipeline, both in the direction of its axis, and in the cross direction.
