- Service Pipe: 2-1/2" through 8" Sch. 10 and Sch. 40 IPS.
- Service Pipe: 2-1/2" through 6" Flow Pipe.
- Brace Pipe: 1" or 1-1/4" Sch. 40 IPS
Material: Carbon steel clamp, ductile iron brace connector
Finish: Plain or Zinc Plated
Service: Used to rigidly brace piping systems subjected to sway and seismic disturbances. Pipe clamp component of Anvil's 700 series sway brace assembly. Can be utilized as either a lateral brace clamp or a longitudinal brace clamp.
Approvals: UL and ULC Listed (UL 203A:2009), and FM Approved (FM 1950:2010). Complies with seismic bracing requirements of NFPA-13. Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) State of California approved.
- No threading of bracing pipe
- Functions as a lateral or longitudinal brace clamp
- Installation of the pipe must be at a minimum 6" away from a pipe joint.
- Position pipe clamp at desired location and loosely tighten the clamp hex bolts. Ensure that the spacer and brace pipe connector are positioned between the pipe clamp ears.
- Place the Schedule 40 brace pipe into the brace pipe connector until it bottoms out.
- Tighten shear bolt until the head shears off. Then position the brace pipe to the appropriate angle. The use of an impact wrench is not recommended.
- Tighten the pipe clamp hex bolts equally and alternately until metal-to-metal contact is achieved with the following torque values. Clamp Bolt Minimum Torque Values: 2-1/2" thru 3" Dia. Clamps (80 Ft-Lbs), 4" & 5" Dia. Clamps (100 Ft-Lbs), 6" Dia. Clamp (120 Ft-Lbs), 8" Dia. Clamp (140 Ft-Lbs).
- Note: For 6" and 8" service pipe, a thread lubricant such as Gruvlok® Xtreme™ Lubricant should be used to ease assembly of pipe clamp hex bolts and nuts.
Ordering: Specify service pipe diameter x brace pipe diameter, figure number, name and finish.
