1

Is the latest Pipe routing being followed? (i.e. is the latest revision of

       

isometric / GAD being followed?) Are

the

latest

revisions

of

PP

PP

structural/pressure-vessel/other relevant drawings being followed?

2

Is the line critical? Has it been stress analyzed or has any other study been carried out (e.g. analog study, dynamic analysis or nomograph check)? If yes, are the supports in lin e with the recommendations? Does the isometric/GAD contain a reference to the stress data/ the study?

PP

3

Does the support require any additional structural attachment (e.g. bracket)? Is the attachment non-standard? Has the requirement been forwarded to Structural group?

PP

4

Has the selected support been checked for the following?

         

Size.

PP

     
 

PP

     

Material (e.g. AS / SS for cold or high temperatures). Type with respect to hot / cold / no insulation. Load carrying capacity (self, pedestal, column, beam, equipment,

PP

etc). Functionality i.e. purpose in arresting / providing the required degree of movement e.g. thermal growth & rotation.

PP

PP

 

Possibility of adjustment, if required.

 

PP

     

Vibration dampener, if required.

 

PP

PP

   
 

PP

     

Possibility of removing e.g. for/during maintenance. Completeness for construction (Support should not be defined in descriptive language. Instead a standard type should be preferred or

PP

     

a sketch should be made for non-standard ones).

 

Possible clash with any other object.

 

PP

     

Roller supports or low friction pads e.g. Teflon / Graphite.

Hydrostatic loads.
