2018 ESTmep Hanger grabbing wrong "Support #1"
« on: Nov 03, 2017, 04:13:00 PM »
Having an issue with 2018 ESTmep hangers on the piping side...

We have our hangers set up to oversize based on the service being run...for example, both a 1/2" & 3/4" CHW pipe will get a 2" hanger.

However, with 2018, this same 2" hanger will have a large cost difference.  In exploring more, the "Support #1" for the more expensive one is not following the size breakpoints in the "Support #1" being used.  It is actually, on the Bearer tab of the "Support #1" picking the very largest "Insert Type", which is a 30" Pipe Protection Saddle...

Having a 30" Pipe Protection Saddle drives the cost up by $60...  Thoughts on why this is going to the largest size?

I'm still not fully moved over to 2018, but I have been testing stuff and haven't noticed this.
I will look into it next week to make sure that it isn't an issue here though.

Gene,
How do you have your hangers setup to do this?  The reason I am asking is because I have not noticed this but I have not set our hangers up to do this.  I am letting the insulation thickness drive this based off of the hanger selected.
