Pipe Hangers and Supports – Selection and Application (ANSI-approved American National Standard)
This Standard Practice was developed by a cooperative effort of representatives of the pipe hanger manufacturers. It is based on the best practice current at this time and on the collective experience of the industry. There are three companion standards – MSS SP-58 and MSS SP-89 relate to hanger materials, design, manufacture, fabrication and installation; MSS SP-127 relates to the design, selection, and application of bracing for piping systems subject to seismic – wind – dynamic loading. In addition, the MSS Technical Committee 403 has developed guidelines for pipe supports contractual relationship and on hanger terminology as covered in MSS SP-77 and MSS SP-90 respectively.
