Railroad Tie Pipe Support

on . Posted in Structural Engineering

Railroad tie pipe support, also called railroad tie pipe saddle or railroad tie support, is a structural component used in various industries, particularly in the oil and gas sector, to provide stable and secure support for pipes that need to be elevated above the ground.  The term "railroad tie" in this context refers to a wooden or concrete beam that is commonly used as a base for railway tracks.  However, in the context of pipe supports, it's repurposed for a different application.

A typical railroad tie pipe support consists of a saddle shaped structure that cradles or holds the pipe securely.  This saddle is often made from steel or another sturdy material that can withstand the weight of the pipe and the stresses it might experience due to various factors such as temperature changes, fluid flow, and external forces.  The saddle is then attached or anchored to the railroad tie, which serves as the foundation.

These supports are employed to maintain the integrity of pipes and prevent sagging or damage due to their own weight or external forces.  They can be used in a variety of settings, including industrial facilities, pipelines, refineries, and other infrastructure projects where pipes need to be raised off the ground for reasons such as drainage, protection against corrosion, and accessibility for maintenance.
