When it comes to earthquake preparedness in an industrial production facility,
nonstructural features like Pressure Piping Systems are especially vulnerable to earthquake damage.
If companies don’t properly detail their piping systems, they risk potentially devastating
financial effects from property loss or production shut-downs.
Pressure piping systems carry a wide range of fluids and gases around buildings,
generally at pressures greater than 15 psi. Systems are usually configured in some combination
of horizontal and vertical runs of pipe suspended overhead or mounted on (and penetrating through) walls,
floors or roofs.
Improperly supported or unbraced piping can fall or sway into adjacent equipment or structures.
Joints, connections to equipment, bends, and penetrations are often the source of breaks and leakage,
damaging both the piping system and whatever else happens to be nearby.
