“Lift-Off” Pipe Supports is the brand name of a new product offering that is proving to be a huge benefit for the industries where pipe supports are failing and having to be replaced.
Nominated for the 2019 Innovation Award of NACE International, “Lift-Off” Rests (LOR) finished in the final 5 in the “Materials and Design Category” of 41 entries.
The “Lift-Off” Pipe Rest (LOR) is a glass-reinforced composite resin pipe support providing a noncorrosive barrier between pipes and beams to eliminate corrosion, designed to meet the thermal and mechanical requirements of load-bearing supports.
This innovative pipe support does not absorb moisture, spreads the pipe load equally over at least four times greater area than existing supports, does not contribute to distortion of the underlying support beam, prevents electrolysis, and is rated for use at temperatures as low as -265 °F (-165 °C) and as high as 412 °F (211.1 °C, continuous) and up to 550 °F (287.8 °C, intermittent). The LOR continually maintains position without external support and is designed with grooves for fluid shedding and additional corrosion protection.
