1. PURPOSE

This document specifies requirements and gives recommendations for the design and
application of pipe support in piping systems.

2. SCOPE

This specification prescribes the general requirements for supply and installation of
fabricated elements for support and control of piping system and components. The
requirements outlined herein are supplementary to Shell Engineering Practice DEP
31.38.01.29.Gen Pipe Supports and project variation 31.38.01.29-P4049NRP.00.PV.

Together with the piping support standard comprise the specification for design, material
selection, fabrication inspection, and packing for the following elements and their
accessories: constant support hanger, variable support hanger, rod hanger, pipe shoes,
guides, miscellaneous support, struts, vibration dampeners, rollers, slide bearings, or
special elements as identified by the specification drawing sheets.

Temporary pipe supports for hydraulic test or erection facilities are out of the scope but
subjected to specific requirements. Supports for hydraulic test to be avoided for lines
already resting on rigid support since these supports should be designed to satisfy test
condition.

Although the supports for pipes shall be totally dimensioned to allow their prefabrication,
the pipe support subcontractor shall check possible deviations as consequence of
admissible tolerance in the plant erection or build them so that it might be adjusted “in situ”.

3. TERMINOLOGY

Pre-Engineered Supports: Includes all standardized. Predesign, load rated supports whose
intended use encompasses multiple applications.

Engineered Supports: Includes all special, individually designed supports intended to be

5. GENERAL

DEP 31.38.01.11-Gen. is applicable for the piping and specifies the required positioning of
pipe supports.

Supporting of pipe is an integral part of piping design. EPC Contractor will design the
supports comply with P4049NRP.00.10.10.017 for SP3D Requirements.

Pipe supports shall be designed so that access is provided for operation and maintenance.

A bill of material for pipe supports it is required and this bill of material shall contain:

• A list of the special pipe support identification numbers;
• A summary of the standard pipe supports;
• Dimensional sketches of the special supports including materials of construction
and surface protection;
• Material summary sheets.

Supports shall be standardized as far as practical and shall bear an identification number.

Special support identification numbers shall include the unit and/or area number.

For supporting glass-lined piping and plastic piping it will follow the specification P4049N-
0000-BA30-DCN-0667 and pipe support standards 0667P40NRP-76017-A99-0003.

Galvanised supports shall not be used on austenitic stainless steel, duplex stainless steel,
nickel alloy, or 9% nickel steel piping.

6.1 CLAMPED SUPPORTS

The position of clamped supports may be adjusted during construction to correct
mismatches between the location of the support and the location of the supporting
structure. These field modifications shall only be minor corrections and shall not lead to an
increase of stresses and/or moments in the piping system and/or in the connecting nozzles.

Clamped supports are susceptible to corrosion because water may collect between the
support and the pipe. If clamped supports are used in situations where corrosion may be
expected, precautions shall be taken to protect the pipe and the supports against corrosion
e.g. by avoiding the ingress of water under insulated pipes. Clamped supports require more
maintenance than welded supports. To prevent galvanic corrosion, carbon steel clamps on
pipes of other metallic materials shall be separated from the pipe by using a layer of
synthetic rubber, glass fibre paper tape or other insulating material between the clamp and
the pipe. Clamped supports on hot pipes or on pipes with variable temperature may loosen
because of the difference in temperature between the pipe and the clamp. In those
situations weld-on shear lugs should be applied in order to avoid slipping of the pipe under
the clamp. The paint of the pipe shall be repaired after welding the shear lugs. The
application of goal post supports may avoid the clamp rotating over pipe when these
supports are used as guides or as anchor points where excessive forces/moments may be
expected.

Note: Clamped supports on insulated pipes may require a local increase of the insulation
thickness to avoid the clamps penetrating the insulation outside cover. To avoid local
insulation increases it should be considered to increase the insulation thickness of the
complete pipe. For those situations welded supports may be a better choice.

6.2 WELDED SUPPORTS

Welded supports are less susceptible to corrosion than clamped supports. In order to install
welded supports at the correct positions attention to these positions shall be paid during
the detailed design phase. The field welds in the piping shall be used to correct differences
in position during construction, caused by tolerances of the piping and the tolerances of the
supporting structures.

Welded pipe supports shall not be used on the following piping:

• Piping lined with glass, rubber, plastics, etc.;

(Contract No.: ZOR/EPC-0055-A - Main Process Units)

SPECIFICATION FOR PIPING SUPPORTS 11 OF 26

REV.: D
P055AZOR.00.10.40.006

• Piping requiring post weld heat treatment;
• Expensive materials such as titanium, Hastelloy, monel, etc.;
• Piping with corrosion-resistant coating (e.g. galvanized piping).

Supporting steel parts welded to galvanized steel structures shall be attached to steel
members before they are galvanized. Stainless steel piping shall be protected against zinc
embrittlement which may result from molten zinc dripping from galvanized steel during a
fire. See DEP 31.38.01.11-Gen.

6.3 HANGER SUPPORTS

Individual pipes may be suspended by hanger supports. Hanger supports shall not be used
in systems with two-phase flow or where excessive vibration may be expected (e.g. near
reciprocating compressors). Suspending a pipe from another pipe should be avoided.

Because the survivability of any type of hanger support in a pool fire is short and fire
protecting of a rod is not reliable protection by e.g. a catch beam should be considered.
For the application of fire protection and other means of improving fire safety of a plant see
DEP 80.47.10.30-Gen. “Assessment of the Fire of Onshore Installations”.

6.4 SLIDING SUPPORTS

To reduce the friction forces of sliding supports, low friction elements such as
PTFE/graphite sliding plates or roller-type supports may be considered.

The friction will be easily increased by minor corrosion between the element and the
support, therefore the landing area shall be stainless steel. Even then, the friction will be
easily increased by slight fouling (e.g. sand or dirt). For these reasons, the use of low
friction elements in sliding supports shall be minimized. When low friction is required the
use of hanger supports may be a better solution.

6.5 SUPPORTING OF INSULATED PIPES

“Hot” insulated piping in the pipe racks shall be supported on steel shoes. The height of the
shoe shall be such that the bottom of the insulation is 50 mm minimum above the support.

Shoe length must allow minimum length of 50 mm without restraint after pipe thermal
expansion.

(Contract No.: ZOR/EPC-0055-A - Main Process Units)

SPECIFICATION FOR PIPING SUPPORTS 12 OF 26

REV.: D
P055AZOR.00.10.40.006

Pipe supports for cold insulated piping shall be outside the insulation and shall not be in
contact with the pipe. Curved metal shields shall be interposed between the supports and
the bottom of the suitable insulation material.

When insulation is only for personnel protection, pipe may be considered as not being
insulated at the support point, cutting the insulation in such a way that a free axial
movement of ± 100 mm in both directions is allowed.

Cradles and pipe shoes of pipes operating at temperatures above 400 °C shall be insulated
from the supporting structure by incombustible insulating blocks of sufficient load-bearing
and insulation capabilities. Alternatively, clamped cradles or pipe shoes can be installed
around the insulation. At the location of these supports the insulation shall have sufficient
load-bearing capacity.

For further details regarding supporting insulated pipes in hot services, see DEP
30.46.00.31-Gen.

6.6 SUPPORTING COLD-INSULATED PIPES

Pipe supports for cold-insulated pipes shall be clamped to the outer surface of the insulation
system in order to avoid the ingress of moisture in the insulation. At locations where field
insulation is applied (e.g. around field welds) the insulation shall be installed after pressure
testing the pipe. Therefore, since the pipe supports are required during erection and testing
of the piping, field applied insulation shall not be located in positions where supports are
located.

The clearance between the insulation and the supporting structure shall be at least 50 mm
taking movements of the pipe caused by thermal expansion/contraction into account.

At sliding points the loads due to friction shall be checked against the load bearing capacity
of the insulation. If required, sliding plates (3.4) shall be fitted between the pipe shoe and
supporting member.

The forces and moments on anchors, pipe stops and rotating supports shall be checked. If
these forces and moments are greater than the load-bearing capacity of clamped supports,
specially designed supports shall be used. Welded attachments to the pipe may then be
required and shall be of the same type of material as the pipe. The pipe supports shall be
insulated from these attachments using laminated hard wood or solid resin blocks of
sufficient load-bearing capacity and insulation properties.

For further details regarding supporting cold-insulated pipes, see DEP 30.46.00.31-Gen.

6.7 NON-INSULATED PIPES

Non-insulated pipes shall be supported on main pipe rack beams with a 20 mm (3/4 in)
diameter round bar (material EN 10025 S275JR or equivalent) welded on top to avoid
corrosion developing on the pipe along the entire width of the construction member, or shall
be supported on pipe shoes to avoid damaging the pipe wall for the following situations:

• Surface condensation is likely (i.e. the operating temperature of the pipe is below
ambient temperature) and therefore access will be needed for painting and repair;
• Needed to avoid unacceptable pipe corrosion in corrosive atmospheres (e.g. due
to coating damage caused by pipe movement and water collection on top of the
supporting structure).

Environment for the KNPC NRP project is to be considered corrosive, based on the close
proximity of the plant location to the sea so that the use of round bar will be considered.

In other cases, non-insulated pipes should be supported on pipe shoes to avoid damaging
the pipe wall:

• Pipes with sizes larger than DN 600;
• Carbon steel pipes with a wall thickness less than schedule 20;
• Stainless steel pipes with a wall thickness less than schedule 10S;
• The pipe requires a slope;
NOTE: This is only for small slope corrections. The height of pipe shoes measured from the
underside of the pipe shall be maximum 400 mm
• The pipe may operate (even temporarily) at such a low temperature that this may
cause embrittlement of the supporting member;

For piping systems where only small forces on supports can be expected (e.g. instrument
air systems) the use of U-bolts may be considered. U-bolts shall not be used as fixed points
because their grip is not reliable.

Movements of pipes by thermal expansion/contraction can cause damage of the paint, and
therefore corrosion, at the location of the supports and guides. This damage can be avoided
by protecting the pipe with a composite sleeve at the location of the support. If composite
sleeves are applied they shall be designed and installed so that under no circumstances

can water penetrate under the sleeve. Composite sleeves should only be used for
maintenance of existing situations.

6.8 PIPE SADDLES AND REINFORCING PADS

Pipe saddles and reinforcing pads shall be made from the same type of material as the
pipe and shall have a vent hole.

Pipe saddles and reinforcing pads shall not be used unless proven to be more economical
than welded or clamped supports over the total lifetime of the plant.

Pipe saddles and reinforcing pads shall not be applied on pipes operating at temperature
levels which would create high stresses in the welds due to the temperature difference
between the pipe wall and the saddle or reinforcing pad.

Pipe saddles and reinforcing pads shall not be applied on pipes operating with fluctuating
temperatures which would create high stresses in the welds.

In corrosive atmospheres, corrosion may occur between the pipe and the saddle or
reinforcing pad due to water ingress in the vent hole. Since it is not possible to inspect or
maintain the pipe under the reinforcing plate, saddles or reinforcing pads shall not be used
in areas where this corrosion may occur.

The use of pipe shoes is preferred over the use of reinforcing pads.

6.9 SUPPORTING OF SMALL BORE PIPING

The supports as shown on standard drawings S 44.030, S 44.031 and S 44.032 or
equivalent are designed to improve the mechanical strength of small bore piping. The use
of larger piping is preferred over the use of attachments in order to support small bore
piping for situation where increasing of the mechanical strength is required. For
requirements of small bore piping see DEP 31.38.01.11-Gen.

6.10 SUPPORTING OF VERTICAL PIPES

Clamped supports applied in vertical pipes shall be executed with weld-on shear lugs to
avoid the pipe slipping under the clamp. The paint on the pipe shall be repaired after
welding the shear lugs. If the support load exceeds the maximum load as stated on the
relevant support selection chart, the application of two supports located opposite each
other may be considered. For larger loads, special supports shall be designed.

7. FABRICATION, MATERIALS AND WELDING

Support materials welded directly to the pipe shall be indicated on the piping isometric
drawing and be of the same type of material as the pipe.

If pipe stanchions or dummy legs are welded to elbows or tees, a distance of at least 50
mm shall be kept between the welds of the support and the welds of the fitting.

Field welding to pipes for pipe supporting purposes shall be limited as far as practical. Field
welding for pipe support purposes shall not be performed on the following pipe materials:

• Materials requiring post weld heat treatment;
• Lined carbon steel (glass, PTFE, rubber, cement, etc.);
• Galvanised materials;
• Non-ferrous materials.

For pipes requiring post weld heat treatment, attachments required for supporting purposes
shall be indicated on the piping isometric drawings, and welding shall be performed in the
workshop before post weld heat treatment.

All welds of support elements and of supports to piping shall be continuous. The fabricated
and supplied supports shall conform to the "Bill of Material for Supports" drawings and
standards and shall be able to withstand the specified loads.

Welding of supports shall be completed prior to flushing, chemical cleaning or blowing.

Mechanical devices such as snubbers, sway braces and sway struts shall be:

• designed with 50% decreased allowable material stresses when subjected to
vibration;
• designed to withstand the specified loads without buckling, and provided with self-
aligning spherical ball bushings at both ends of the assembly, permitting a minimum
of 10 degrees rotation in any plane;
• furnished in such a way that an adjustable specified length of plus/minus 40 mm is
possible, and fitted with a secure locking device.

Snubbers and sway braces shall have a clearly readable travel scale.

Snubbers shall be able to operate in the frequency range from 3 Hz to 33 Hz.

8. MARKING

Marking/Tagging shall be as prescribed in project specification P4049N-0000-DE20-SPC-
0004.

Except for small items which have restricted space for die-stamping (e.g. hanger rods, eye
nuts, etc.) each standard support component shall, in addition to paint marking, be stamped
with its size and identification mark.

The items which are not die-stamped shall have their size and identification legibly marked
on a securely attached durable tag.

Hot-dip galvanized supports shall be die-stamped with their identification mark and serial
number before galvanising. After hot dip galvanizing, these marks and numbers shall be
painted on.

9. INSTALLATION

Piping shall be properly anchored and guided before pressure testing.

Tie rods shall be locked in their proper position before testing, and re-adjusted as
necessary after testing in accordance with the installation instructions.

Pipe supports shall be able to sustain the hydrostatic test load of the piping they support,
if applicable.

Spring assemblies shall be shipped to the job site with the springs compressed in the
installed position as indicated on the pipe support detail drawing and/or requisition. They
shall have caution tags attached which warn that the spring locks must be removed before
the line is put in service. Additionally, the spring supports shall have the marks "C" or "H"
on the casing load indication scale:

• Mark "C" indicates the cold position of the spring when the line is at ambient
temperature but filled with its actual service fluid. For tank pipes filled with the actual
service fluid, it indicates the position when the tank is empty and has zero
settlement.
• Mark "H" indicates the operation positions of the spring. For tank pipes, it indicates
the position when the tank is filled and has settled.

Spring supports shall be installed with the spring locks in place. These spring locking plates
or pins shall not be removed until hydrostatic testing and insulation of the piping system
has been completed.

Note: In order to ensure the locking pins are available when next needed (e.g. during a
shutdown) it should be considered to attach the pin with a plastic tie near the support. As
per P4049N-0000-DE20-SPC-0004 locking pin/travel stops must be securely linked to the
spring assembly. Red warning tags must be present which indicates when the stops are to
be removed.

Normally, all construction aids such as spring locks, temporary supports, welding tacks,
etc. shall be removed prior to commissioning. However, if the spring force on the empty

- All supports shall have an identification mark. This mark shall be the same as that shown on
piping drawings, unless otherwise indicated in such piping drawings.

- All supports shall be designed to permit dismantling the supported pipes.

- All dimensions shall be in mm. or sexagesimal degrees.

- Orientation angles shall be measured in clockwise direction regarding to Plant North.

- For horizontal pipe, the orientation angles of the support shall be measured, looking to Plant
North or East, in clockwise direction regarding to tube top.

- Supports are dimensionally valid for prefabrication; however, due to admissible construction
tolerances they shall be checked before fabrication or constructed in such a way that they
permit adjusting “in situ".

- All springs must remain blocked in order to avoid overloads on pipes or equipment nozzles
until hydrostatic testing has been done.

- When in the installation of the springs, the load gage made in the shop has been accidentally
lost, use the existing regulating devices (turnbuckles, threaded pieces, etc.) in order to reach
the correct load indicated on the scale of the spring.

- When a plate must be bended and the external bending radius is not specifically indicated, this
shall be twice its thickness for plates up to 10 mm. and three times its thickness for thicker
plates.

- For supports where different steel shapes than those graphically represented on the standard
drawings are required, the reference for the substitution criteria shall be as indicated on
standard drawing nº SA4-3702A.

- Pipes shall be temporary supported during their installation and until the final supports have
been installed in order to avoid overloads on pipes or equipment nozzles.

- Special attention shall be paid to pipes resting on brackets by means of trunnions in order to
assure that the pipe weight is supported by the brackets and not by the equipment nozzle.

- Vent holes made in cradles and trunnions shall be plugged by means of solid grease if the
operation temperature of the line where they are installed is 100ºC or lower.

- Construction of supports types CS01 to CS04 (see drawings SA4-3764A to SA4-3767A) shall
be made maintaining the existing mat reinforcements of pavement. If this is not possible, a
new mat reinforcement shall be properly joined to the existing one.

1. SCOPE

This document provides the basis to select the size of the shapes used in different support
configurations according to pipe diameter and/or maximum allowable loads.

For those support configurations not included in this document the selection criteria established on
their corresponding Standard Drawing shall be followed.

The selected shapes are the minimum recommended for the configuration and maximum established
loads. Support engineer shall be aware about the transmitted loads on the existing structure, taking
into account the maximum loads that the existing structure is able to withstand.

Any variation of the support configuration or load conditions established in this document shall be
analysed.

The following shapes have been established as recommended, according to the symbology indicated
below:

- L40: L40x40x6
- L60: L60x60x6
- L80: L80x80x8
- L100: L100x100x10
- L120: L120x120x12
- U: UPN shape (e g. U100: UPN-100)
- I: IPN shape(e g. I120: IPN-100)
- H: HEB shape (e g. H140: HEB-140)

If, for any reason, the recommended shapes cannot be used, the steel substitution criteria shall
consider shapes with higher values of Moment of Inertia (I) and Section Modulus (W) in both axes
than the recommended ones.
