Pipe suspension clamps (ME)

It was just brought to my attention that the Omega and Mickey mouse eared pipe suspension clamps and straps that we've been using forever (Sioux Chief) are not rated for use with copper tubing at temps above 175 degrees F. In fact, the guys have found numerous situations in crawl spaces where the straps have let go.

Whose do you use and what temps are they rated for?

Just when you get comfortable with your techniques...

TIA!

    Hangers and such

    Mupro has some real nice stuff, although a bit more money than a Tube Talon! Most of the Sioux Chief hangers are 175 F rated.

    Is it just me or do you notice Pex or PAP run at 180 F never seems to get that hot on the outer wall of the tube?

    I've played with this in my shop a little. Run 160 F through copper and you can't touch it. Run 160 through Pex or rubber and you can grab and hold it tightly!
