MSS STANDARD PRACTICE SP-90

An MSS Standard Practice is intended as a basis for common practice by the manufacturer, the user, and
the general public. The existence of an MSS Standard Practice does not in itself preclude the manufacture,
sale, or use of products not conforming to the Standard Practice. Mandatory conformance is established
only by reference in a code, specification, sales contract, or public law,
as applicable.

in this MSS SP,any standard referredto herein is identified by the date of issue
Unless otherwise specifically noted
that was applicable to the referenced standard(s) at the date of issueMSS
of this

FOREWORD
Thisstandard wasdeveloped by acooperative effort of representatives of the pipe hanger
manufacturers. It is based on the best practice current atthis time and on the collective experience
of the industry. There are three companion standards, MSS SP-58, MSS SP-69, and MSS SP-89
relating
to
hangermaterials, design, manufacture,
fabrication, selection and application,
installation, and testing. In addition, The MSS Pipe Hanger Committee has developed MSS SP-77
Guidelines For Pipe Supports ContractualRelationships.

Originally Approved 1980

of the
piping, insulation and contents.
Desien Load - The combination of operating and other loads
as defined byjob
specification.
Dvnamic Load - Temporary loading resulting from internal and/or external forces
which tend to place the pipe in motion.
Friction Load- Loading as a resultof frictional forces that exist between sliding
surfaces.
Hot Load - Operating load on a Variable Spring Hanger. (Normally represents
deadweight under operating conditions.)
of a piping
Hvdrostatic Load - Loading associated with the hydrostatic testing
system. (Includes weighs of piping, insulation and testing
fluid.)

Operating Load- Loading associated with "normal" operating conditions.


(Includes deadweight load, and
themal and/or pressure forces
where applicable.)
