This presentation will cover pipe support design, 3D modeling, Finite Element Analysis, special stress and thermal cases, along with the unique cases that brought on new pipe support designs. Increase your understanding of the value-added services that are offered by PT&P, and rest assured that your Engineering and Design needs can be covered by our 24×7 web-based emergency services, providing field service, and quick-turn around time when you need it most.
Custom designed cryogenic pipe supports were fabricated for an LNG facility in Africa. The shoes range in diameter from 30″ to 72″, 45″ to 88″ in height, 42-1/2″ to 85-1/2″ in width, and 28″ to 33″ in length. The insulation is a high density polyurethane foam (PUF) ranging from 5″ to 6″ thick. The shoe and bearing plates were fabricated from carbon steel with a HDG finish. The jacket was fabricated from aluminized steel and includes a vapor barrier.
PTP-2 160 C-Type variable spring support assemblies were designed and fabricated for an oil sands mine in Canada. The variables are 8″-12″ diameter, 16″ to 32-1/2″ overall length, and designed for an operating load of 5590 lb. with an upwards travel of 0.787″. The variables were fabricated from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish and standard load and travel testing was completed prior to shipment.
These custom designed sway braces and variable spring assemblies were designed for hanger duct work in an aerospace development facility. The assemblies measure 67-1/2″ long with a 14-1/8″ O.D. The variables are a modified F-type spring with a pivoting base and non-standard coil combination, including a nested spring design. The assemblies include fully adjustable travel stops and custom end brackets. They are fabricated from carbon steel and designed for load ranges between 1100 lb. and 9250 lb. with a spring rate of +/- 2.78″.
These custom designed PTFE slide plate and pipe shoe assemblies are fabricated from A 516 Gr. 70 carbon steel and painted to protect against corrosion. The slide plates are comprised of 3/32″ PTFE, 25% glass filled material bonded to 10 gauge backing plates. A total of twenty guided cradle supports were designed for pipes ranging in diameter from 8″ to 30″.

Discover the secret to a lower coefficient of friction while permitting translational motion or movement with the supporting element. Learn about the different types of slide plates and pipe rollers used for various applications. View the design, load capabilities, and installation and maintenance guidelines for both slide plates and pipe rollers. See numerous photos featuring combinations with other critical pipe supports in order to allow for movement or a low coefficient of friction. Increase your understanding of the value added services that are offered by PT&P, and rest assured that your slide plate and pipe roller needs can be taken care of by our 24×7 web-based emergency services, field service, and quick-turn around time when you need it most.
These custom adjustable pipe saddle supports were designed for an oil refinery in Michigan. They will support 24″ and 30″ diameter pipes and range in height from 40″ to 42″. The pipe saddles can be vertically adjusted by turning the middle section of the seamless pipe and the base plates have been pre-drilled to accept anchor bolts. They are fabricated from carbon steel with a red oxide finish to protect against corrosion and were shipped within two weeks.
