Anchors for Thermal Expansion
The rules are:
1. To divide up the piping system into the largest sections a single joint can handle
2. Place anchors between the joints.
3. Review that the anchor locations are suable for the installation of an anchor. In line bellows expansion joints can develop high anchor loads. See How do I calculate in line bellows anchor loads?
4. Only install one expansion joint between anchors.
