         the insert plate. If the level of the top of the rod does not match the required level, proper level
         of the bottom of the pipe is achieved by raising the rod by means of packing plates between the
         rod and insert plate. After levelling, the packing plate is welded to the insert and the rod in turn
         welded to the packing plate.
2.4.2    The heights of the supports shall be adjusted so as to suit the piping gradient required and also
         the pipe work installed. The underside of the pipe should have a minimum distance of 300mm
         from the ground level. This enables easy maintenance of the pipes and fittings.
2.4.3    Grade stakes set to correct levels shall be provided along the pipe alignment at suitable
         intervals for checking the levels of the pipe supports/ pipe during construction of supports/
         laying of piping.
2.4.4    Due care shall be taken while laying the pipes on the supports. The Bidder/ Contractor shall
         correct any damage caused to supports. No claims whatsoever will be entertained by HPCL on
         this account.

         d. As close as practical to heavy load concentrations such as vertical runs which do not
            require removal for maintenance
2.4.6    In establishing the location of pipe supports, the Bidder/ Contractor should be guided by two
         requirements
         a. The horizontal span must not be so long that sag in the pipe will impose an excessive stress
            in the pipe wall.
         b. The pipeline must be pitched downward so that outlet of such span is lower than maximum
            sag in the span in order to facilitate drainage.
