Vulcan Onshore Tip #16: Piping Do’s and Don’ts

The length of the Nipple from the Inlet must be kept to a minimum. A long Nipple, as shown in the drawing, even though supported by chain or wire rope, will cause damaging leverage and vibration. Extensions to the side, like the arrangement in the picture, allow for good support of the Piping and Hose.

Note: more information on this important subject is given in Tip 64.
