Here we have some customized UHMW-PE (Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene) Saddles that have been custom milled for NPS 20″ and 8″ piping. Holes have been added that would allow the saddle to be utilized with bolting (or u-bolts). The saddles are black in color for UV-Resistance.
These great looking 20″ Hold-down clamps are finished with a hot dipped galvanized finished and lined with PTFE. These also feature a custom baseplate that matches the bolt holes and avoids the need for attaching the bottom PTFE pad to the support surface in the field. The baseplate can simply be placed on the support […]
These “Box-Type” Hold-down clamps are something you don’t see every day but have a specific purpose. Box clamps provide a vertical hold-down force while also allowing for the pipe to freely rotate and move laterally. Houston Pipe Supports can fabricate custom hold down clamps as well as catalog standard clamps.
Houston Pipe Supports can furnish thermoplastic half round rod in bulk 10 foot lengths. While most people are familiar with using half-round with u-bolts there are other applications for using the strips on I-beams or wide-flange beams to separate the pipe from the steel surface of the beam. Standard widths include 1.5″ and 1″.
Pictures above are various sizes of HPS Series 5000 Extended Bolt Hold Down Clamps. Each Clamp is lined with PTFE and also furnished with a PTFE lined baseplate.
