Hi guys. Working on a potential project for a building fuel gas system which is NFPA 54 code. My scope is to select the pipe supports (hangers actually) and anchors. My first idea is to model the system in CAESAR and run the calcs, spacing the hangers using table 18.104.22.168 in NFPA 54. That will give me the vertical (operating weight) and horizontal (seismic) loads to be supported, then I just select the supports from the manufacturer's catalog. Problem is I have no experience with NFPA 54 systems; I'm a process plant (B31) guy. Should I proceed on that basis, or sit this one out and sub it to someone with NFPA 54 experience? Thanks guys! Pete
