Special applications. On request spacers can be manufactured in other types of plastic material according to the mechanical and temperature requirements of the application.
Raci Spacers are divided into 3 groups which address a wide range of pipe sizes, and weights.
Individual spacers within each group have specific load carrying capacities. The tables below state these figures with a built in safety factor. All of these factors must be verified to determine the best spacer type for the application.
Distance between spacers must be calculated so the maximum load per spacer ring does not exceed the maximum load carrying capacity for the type used as shown in the tables. Maximum load per spacer is calculated based on the weight of the pipe filled with liquid divided by the number of spacer rings installed.
The maximum distance of 10ft / 3m shall not be exceeded due to the danger of the pipe sagging between the spacers support points unless the pipe manufacturer states differently.
