Eliminate risk and reduce your downtime – critical factors to consider to eliminate pipe deflection stress
Can the right support prevent your pipeline’s shutdown?
n polyethylene pipelines, insufficient supports and bracketing can lead to unwanted shutdowns because it causes further problems. The primary cause of those problems is pipe deflection.
If a polyethylene pipe is insufficiently supported, you will face a range of issues, including: – buckling
If you use elastomeric seals, excessive deflection can also cause leaks. Additionally, it can prevent the effective mechanical cleaning of your pipeline, and reduce its hydraulic capacity.
To prevent these problems there are two critical elements to consider: Temperature, and weight.
