Short Article on Pipe Supports and Pipe Restraints

Difference between pipe supports and pipe restraints, although the terms are often used interchangeably. Here’s a breakdown:

Pipe Supports:

  • Function: Primarily carry the weight (vertical load) of the piping system.
  • Types: Include saddles, shoes, hangers, rollers, and beams.

Pipe Restraints:

  • Function: Primarily limit the movement (horizontal or lateral load) of the piping system.
  • Types: Include guides, line stops, anchors, and sway braces.

Key Differences:

  • Load: Supports handle vertical loads, while restraints handle horizontal/lateral loads.
  • Movement: Supports allow some movement, while restraints restrict it.
  • Combination: Often, pipe restraints are used in conjunction with pipe supports to create a complete pipe support system.

Simple Analogy:

Imagine a tightrope walker. The support cable acts like a pipe support, holding the walker’s weight (vertical load). But without something to prevent them from swaying, they’d fall. That’s where the bar they hold comes in – a pipe restraint, limiting their horizontal movement.

Combined System:

Think of a car. Its suspension system acts like a pipe support system. The springs and shocks carry the car’s weight (vertical load), while the control arms and tie rods limit its movement (horizontal/lateral loads) during turns and bumps.

So, while there’s a distinction, pipe supports and restraints work together to ensure the safe and stable operation of piping systems.
