What are the different types of supports in piping?

The different types of pipe supports can mainly be categorized as active or passive supports. Active supports would include those components which continuously carry a load and either allow or prevent movement under that loading condition. Passive supports would consist of components which do not continuously carry a load but are activated under extreme dynamic conditions.

See a complete list of our standard PT&P products.
