PT&P Providing Training to Field Personnel

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. shipped approximately 150 pipe supports to the Red Hills Power Plant with radio frequency identification (RFID) chips affixed to each pipe supports.  The RFID tags and RFID handheld reader were provided by SAT Safetrac.  Field personnel were trained on the use of the new technology.  The RFID-tagged pipe support assemblies were then received by field personnel.  Videos of the RFID receiving process were taken for the purpose of comparative time and motion studies.

16,000 Lb. 33 1/2" Travel Horizontal Constant Load Hangers

16,000 Lb. 33 1/2" Travel Horizontal Constant Load Hangers

In January 2000, Piping Technology & Products, Inc., a manufacturer of high quality engineered products, designed and built two 33 1/2 inches travel and two 25 inches travel constant load spring hangers. These constant load spring hangers will be in service at a geothermal production well in Hawaii, where they will be used to support a pipe that carries hot water discharged from a geothermal production well to a separator.

The well will produce 2.8 Million gallons of water per hour at a discharge temperature of 680° F, and a pressure of 2800 psi. These custom designed constant load spring hangers provide extraordinarily large travel distance. The 33 1/2″ travel and the 25″ travel constant load spring hangers are designed to provide a constant 16,000 lbs. and 6,000 lbs support for a pipe moving a vertical distance of 33 1/2″ and 25″ respectively.

Specially Fabricated Pipe Supports

Specially Fabricated Pipe Supports

The photo above shows three different supports fabricated by Piping Technology & Products, Inc. for a petrochemical facility in Indonesia. The smallest support, (lower right) show the interior layer of polyurethane projecting out of the outside layer. This allows the pipe insulation to overlap when installed. These units provide insulation between the very cold fluid inside the pipe and the hot, humid conditions outside. They also support the weight of the pipe and allow for movement due to thermal expansion and contraction. Micarta was used for certain supports which require greater strength.

Specially Fabricated Sway Struts and Mechanical Snubbers

The photograph above shows sway struts and mechanical snubbers, which are combined and attached to large pipes and to stable structures. The snubber will dampen shocks and vibrations caused by sudden opening and closing of valves or even earthquakes. Piping Technology & Products, Inc. fabricated these for the steam piping in a power plant.
