How do I select a pipe hanger?

The design parameters that must be considered when selecting a pipe hanger would include operating temperature, operating load, movement, pipe material, available space, and allowable initial load requirements. Once these are known, then you can select an appropriate type of pipe hanger which could be any of the following types including rigid hangers, variable spring hangers, or constant spring hangers.
