PT&P custom designed big ton spring supports with PTFE slide plates for an LNG facility in Australia. The components within the spring housing include load columns, travel stops, spring coils and lifting lugs. Each assembly is designed for an operating load ranging from 16,276 lb. to 34,479 lb. and will allow for movement between 0.16″ and 0.24″. They are fabricated from hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel and measure 29-7/8″ x 29-7/8″ x 16-1/2″. The big ton spring support is ideal for applications that have very heavy loads with thermal expansion because of the stability they provide throughout the range of travel. These supports were tested in the press connected to a load cell to insure proper operation throughout the entire working range of the coils.
PT&P designed cold insulated pipe saddles with PTFE slide plates to provide sliding and guiding support for horizontal piping leading to an ethane cracker at a plant in Texas. The project fulfilled an emergency request when the client realized the product was missing at time of installation. The pipe saddles are fabricated from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish for pipe sizes ranging from 3″ to 56″. They have a diameter of 40″, height of 23-5/8″, width of 42-1/2″ and 11-7/8″ BOP. Visual inspection and dimensional checks using a section of pipe were completed prior to shipment.
PT&P designed and fabricated U-Type constant spring support , with PTFE, 25% glass filled side plate for a Polypropylene Plant in Texas. The constant is fabricated from carbon steel, and hot-dipped galvanized for extra protection against corrosion. The vertical movement is 1.5″ total upward travel and is capable of supporting a 10,350 lb. load. The constant underwent standard load testing prior to shipment.

This Webinar will focus on the different types of constant spring supports. Learn about the special features available, in addition to the design of a constant support. View how the different cam/coil configurations produce a unique response to an applied load. Discover the step by step process used to size a spring for your application. Learn about the different attachments, testing, and installation and maintenance procedures. View examples of failed supports provided by our Field Service Division and learn why they failed and how to prevent it. Gain knowledge of the valuable tips used when deciding to adjust or replace a constant spring support, as well as shutdown and isolation procedures.
The featured presenter, Jerry Godina has over 15 years experience as a pipe support designer and manages PT&P’s engineer training development program. He also inspects existing supports, consults on site remediation projects and oversees installation on a regular basis.
PT&P designed these G-Type variable spring support assemblies, along with a 24” pipe shoe and hanger for an oil and gas refinery in Texas. Each item is designed with a center to center of 36” and an elevation difference up to 72”. The spring supports consists of a G-type variable spring, all threaded rod, clevis, lifting lugs, welding lugs and clevis pins. They are designed with an operating load range from 1,700 lb. to 10,500 lb. and a movement range of .02” to .19” up or down. Standard load and travel testing was completed prior to shipment.
PT&P custom designed 127 cryogenic insulated pipe supports for a chemical plant in Texas. They are designed for pipe sizes ranging from 1″ – 24″ diameter and operating loads up to 120,517 lb. The insulation is high density polyurethane foam (PUF) ranging from 1″ to 7″ in thickness. The shoe and bearing plates were fabricated from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. The jacket was fabricated from aluminized steel and includes a vapor barrier. Standard Q.C. and dimensional tests were performed prior to shipment.

This webinar will give you an introduction to Pipe Shields, Inc. and its unique line of pre-insulated pipe supports, slides, guides and anchors that it developed and patented over it’s 40 year history. It will cover various designs, commercial applications (chilled and heated water lines, HVAC systems and low pressure steam lines), installation and maintenance procedures and the benefits of using pre-insulated pipe supports (vs. doing insulation in the field). This webinar will be delivered by Albert Dizon, General Manager of Pipe Shields, who has been working with pre-insulated pipe supports for 30+ years. Join us and receive some of his experience and wisdom!
14” Diameter Pipe Clamp Assemblies Designed and Manufactured by PT&P for a Refining Project in Saudi Arabia
Piping Technologies & Products fabricated these special designed Split-T pipe shoes using a Figure 50 “two-bolt pipe clamp” for a refining project in Saudi Arabia. The pipe shoes are 4″ height x 15.5″ wide x 18″ long and were fabricated from A36 carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. They are designed for a pipe size of 14″ with an operating temperature from -29°C to 316°C. The pipe shoes are capable of supporting an operating load of 34,000 lb.
