Hot piping, whether it is steam or domestic hot water, presents certain problems for the people laying out and installing seismic restraints. In particular, the piping grows in length as it heats up; the higher the temperature, the greater the growth in length. This paper will discuss the basics of dealing with seismic restraints for hot piping.
Piping and Ductwork
This paper addresses recommendations for selecting and installing restraints on flexible or flexibly connected piping systems. These systems have the ability to flex significantly when exposed to lateral forces such as those generated by a seismic event. In addition, they can also be pulled apart if subjected to a significant axial load. Because these types …
