Bergen Pipe Supports has over 40 years’ experience of designing and supplying hanger systems.
Pipe Hanger Design
Bergen Pipe Supports has an experienced team of design engineers and pipe support draughtsmen who can design and detail pipe hanger drawings for all types of projects. Detailed support installation drawings can be prepared from conceptual sketches or from plant layout information and pipe stress analysis output.
We can design and place full size support representations in 3D CAD models provided by customers. We can also provide 3D DXF images of supports if customers prefer to place the supports in the model themselves.
Bergen Pipe Supports can offer pipework stress analysis to ASME B31.1, B31.3 and other design codes. Considering deadweight, thermal and dynamic effects, system stress levels and equipment loadings are calculated along with loads and movements acting at the support positions. We use one of several proprietary pipe stress analysis programs.
Finite Element Analysis
Bergen Pipe Supports has a team of design engineers qualified to carry out finite element analysis using ANSYS Professional NLS version 13.0. We are using this design tool to continuously update and expand our range of standard supports and also carry out analysis for specific design contracts.
