Upthrust 200-U Type Constants for an Oil Refinery

The upthrust constants (PTP Fig. 200-U) were fabricated from A36 carbon steel. Weighing at 4,150 lbs each, they measure 94” long, 27” wide, and 43” tall. They support loads from 90,700 lbs to 93,000 lbs with 4” of vertical travel. In addition, they are custom designed with extra supporting points for heavier loads. They are used to support the piping system from beneath the pipeline. Upthrust constants only allow for vertical travel and are used where horizontal travel is unacceptable. Standard load and travel testing was completed to assure quality and performance.

Pre-Insulated Cryogenic Supports with PTFE, 25% Glass Filled, Slide Plates

Measuring Overall Length of the Support

Fifty Pre-Insulated Cryogenic Supports with PTFE, 25% Glass Filled, Slide Plates were manufactured for a 36” stainless steel piping system. The steel portion of the Cryogenic Supports is fabricated from ASTMA 240 Grade 304L stainless steel. The insulation used for the Slide Plate is Micarta, capable of supporting temperatures as low as -300°F. Each Pre-Insulated Cryogenic Support is 72” in length and weighs 2,000 lbs. It is designed to support the pipeline and accommodate 45” of axial travel at each support. They are used as Cryogenic Pipe Supports for a piping system that crosses a 1,000 foot suspension bridge.

Snubber Extension Rod Ends

The hydraulic snubber extension rod ends(seen above) were manufactured from carbon steel. Ranging in sizes 1 , 4, 5, and 6, the weight of each increase with size, therefore; the weight of each unit varies. Extension rod ends are used in conjunction with hydraulic snubbers to extend the overall length of an existing snubber. They are applied to piping systems when unrestrained thermal movement must be allowed but must also be restrained during impulsive or cyclic disturbance. The turn around time for these units was 3 weeks.
