Spider Type Pipe Guides
Adsco Model PGSP
Insulation: 1″ to 4″ Thickness
Adsco Spider Type Pipe Guides are designed to guide the axial movement of the pipe, typically due to thermal expansion or contraction. Spider type guides are not designed to support the weight of the pipe. However, ADSCO Slide Guides are designed to both guide and support the pipe run.
Adsco also offers its Pipe Stress Analysis service for help in locating anchors, anchor loads, and pipe guide placement.
Note: Pipe guide axial travel must match expansion joint movement.
Installation: Cold set guide as illustrated so spider “crawls” into housing as pipe moves.
