What do you mean by "ships"???


Do you really mean OFF SETS - as they refer to pipe expansion?


Please be specific and use plain language.  Don't try to invent words.

These are what we call expansion loops. Something has to move when the pipe temperature changes or the pipe would "buckle" and maybe break. And the pipe is fastened to "sleepers" with shoes that can slide through mating fixed plates.
