Pre-Insulated Supports Homepage >Insulated Supports

Insulated pipe supports are designed to prevent direct heat transfer between pipes and their supports. Thus, they reduce heat loss due to conduction at each support. They serve the following purposes:

  • Carry the load and allow necessary movement at each suppose point.
  • Provide insulation in the support area where the regular pipe insulation cannot be installed.
  • Minimize the cost of field installation by reducing installation time. The supports are not welded to the pipe and each unit is shipped completely assembled (except for the riser supports and anchor supports, both of which require some welding).

Standard PT&P insulated support details are categorized as described below:

  1. Fig 4500 Insulated Shoe Support For Hot Pipe (Hot Shoe)
  2. Fig 4600 Insulated Shoe Support For Cold Pipe (Cold Shoe)
  3. Fig 4700 Clamped Shoe for Un-Insulated Cold Lines

How to Order: Specify pipe size, figure number, description, insulation, thickness, and slide plate material, if desired.

* We can customize our design to meet your particular load, bottom-of-pipe elevation, and movement requirements. We can also manufacture insulated pipe supports per your design and specification.
