CONSTANT HANGERS, CONSTANT

To avoid detrimental constraints in the system,
thermal expansion in piping and other plant
components must not be prevented.

Constant hangers
Constant hangers compensate for vertical
movement caused by thermal expansion.
Via constant hangers, the respective piping
loads are constantly absorbed and transferred
with no significant deviation over the whole
range of movement.

Significant deviations would act as harmful


and uncontrolled extra loads in the system.
Constant hanger type 11 52 25
In this case, connection points are especially
at risk because of unacceptable forces and
moments. For the user, the following features of LISEGA
It is vital that the constant hangers work constant hangers provide special benefits:
reliably and efficiently, as this is decisive for
the operational safety and long life of the
piping system. 1. Simple planning
Constant hangers - the LISEGA system standard cover for the respective load

functional principle, based on the parallelogram easy selection via load groups and

FUNCTION TESTS

Functional performance
The specific functional principle of LISEGA con-
stant hangers guarantees absolute constancy
across the entire travel range. This is not even
affected by load adjustment. Only a minor
1
friction force resulting from tolerances and
bearings has to be taken into account as a
slight deviation. The hysteresis produced by
this is kept within very narrow limits by the
design principle and by state-of-the-art manu-
facturing procedures.
Acceptance test of a constant hanger
For normal load settings, deviations in the
operating load for LISEGA constant hangers For function testing, quasistatically acting
in series production is kept in practice at test benches with a capacity of up to
 3% on average. Using a selection process, 225000 lbs [1000kN] are available in all

of  2% is possible. The test benches are inspected at regular
intervals by an independent authority.
The generally permissible deviations are laid
down in the following international standards:

MSS-SP 58, USA, max.  6% referring


to operating load.

VGB R 510 L and KTA 3205.3, Germany,


max.  5% referring to operating load.

EN Europa Normenentwurf, max  5%,


referring to operating load. The mean
load deviation is limited to max  2%.

Function tests
Before delivery, each constant hanger is tested
for correct function and set to the required
load.

The test results are both graphically and digi-


tally plotted and recorded. They can be sup-
plied on request.

The load setting values are stamped on a


riveted aluminum name plate. In addition,
the set load is permanently marked on the
load scale. Cold and hot positions are marked
on the travel scale in white and red respec-
tively.

The relevant travel position is directly read-


able on the travel scale in mm and inches.
The relevant set load can be read from the Specimen of a
load scale in kN or lbs. test certificate

Corrosion protection
Constant hangers are finished with a LISEGA

offers superior corrosion protection with high
mechanical stability. Bearings and pins are
made from stainless steel.
All threaded parts and cams are electro-
galvanized and yellow chromatized.

In practice, however, slight constraints and
hence certain load displacements in the

theoretically determined loads can also show
considerable tolerances. Deviations resulting
from this can lead, according to increased or
diminished loading, to a corresponding jam-
ming of the blocking pin in the upper or
lower part of the blocking plates.
