Introduction: What are Pipe Shoes?
Pipe shoes are specialised supports that elevate and insulate piping from structures, preserving system integrity in industrial processes.
Key Features of Pipe Shoes:
- Corrosion Prevention:
Pipe shoes shield pipes from direct contact with dissimilar metals, inhibiting electrochemical transfer and galvanic corrosion.
- Thermal Expansion Control:
Quality pipe shoes isolate piping from metal structures, counteracting thermal expansion, and preventing movement and damage.
- Versatility in Design:
Pipe shoes cater to fixed and sliding applications, providing support and control of movement under thermal or mechanical loads.
- Insulation and Protection:
Critical in safeguarding pipes, preventing insulation damage, and minimising wear and movement associated with heat transfer.
Role of Insulated Pipe Shoes:
Preventing heat transfer, reducing thermal expansion, minimising ice formation
Benefits of Insulated Pipe Shoes:
Enhanced thermal efficiency, extended lifespan, corrosion prevention
Considerations for Pipe Supports:
Evaluate weight, thermal forces, and thrust loads within the piping system.
Consider environmental factors like humidity, seismic activity, and material properties.
