Model PTFE Slide Guides

guides-ptfe-slide-guide-bg

Standard and pre-insulated guides in various configurations

Matched to pipe size and insulation thickness, the spider guide provides lateral stability to the pipe to prevent “bowing” and to ensure axial pipe movement in and out of the expansion joint. Extended spiders are available. These guides are not designed to support the weight of the pipe. The Metraflex style IV guides are available for pipe 1 inch to 24 inch diameter, insulation thicknesses 0 to 4 inches are standard, larger thicknesses are available, and axial movement up to 12 inches of travel. Add die-electric spacer for copper pipe.
