Type G is a complete trapeze assembly. The hanger consists of two standard spring units plus
a pair of back-to-back channels welded at each end to the hanger casing. The P dimension can be varied with the customers instructions. In sizing a Type G hanger, it must be remembered that each standard spring unit carries one-half of the total pipe load. Therefore, in using the hanger selection chart, use one-half of the total pipe load as the hot load. When the pipe line is designed so as not to be centered on the channel, one spring of the trapeze will carry a heavier load, the other a lighter load. Care should be taken in calculating the load of each hanger and in choosing the proper sized spring in such cases. The center-to-center rod dimension must be specified when ordering.
