VEP Products Meet or Exceed MSS Standards
Virtually every mechanical specification calls for some type of thermal hanger shield (insulated pipe supports) to maintain the integrity of the insulation system at each point the pipe is supported. Descriptions for this type of product vary widely throughout the industry. The most frequently referenced standards are those known as MSS, the Manufacturers Standardization Society of the Pipe, Valve and Fitting Industry. MSS SP-58, Paragraph 7.6 “Protection Saddles and Shields,” provides parameters for Type 40 thermal hanger shields. Value Engineered Products models comply with the standards set forth in MSS SP-58.
