Tube Hanger Support Recommendations:
Processing lines are not to be rigidly anchored to equipment. They must be allowed to float. Temperatures can cause expansion and contraction - if tube hanger supports are mounted incorrectly, distortion and possibly
leakage of the lines could occur.
Proper Tube Hanger Support Installation:
Straight sections of tube need support every 10 feet. Support needs to be on each side of every valve (as close as possible to the connection). Additionally, a support needs to be at each change of direction.
