Proper pipe guiding is essential to an installation of expansion joints or pipe loops. When properly applied, the guides will prevent the pipe from buckling and are required to ensure the manufacturer's warranty. Flexicraft provides the proper pipe guides as a service augmenting our expansion joint products.
Guides normally permit axial movement of the pipe, while restraining both lateral and angular movement. The quantity and location of the is dependent upon the proximity of the expansion joint to an anchor, the diameter of the pipe, and the length of the pipe run. They also vary by model depending on the amount of insulation that will be required on installation.
The illustration below indicates how many guides are required, and where they should be placed.
