These cold shoes are fabricated from stainless steel and carbon steel with Micarta insulation. The supports vary in length from 12″ to 36″ and are capable of temperatures as low as -260°F. 40 supports in total were fabricated and hot dipped galvanized for corrosion protection at a LNG plant.
We are happy to announce the publication of our product photo galleries! Our new galleries can be seen on our website and will allow visitors to view a wide range of pipe supports; such as snubbers, big tons, sway braces, variable and constant spring supports. We plan to add more photographs in the near future encompassing even more types of pipe support products.
The slide plate assemblies are fabricated from stainless steel, phosphorus bronze, and carbon steel. The 2″ thick carbon steel base plate is securely anchored to a concrete foundation, and the stainless steel slide plates are affixed to the base plate by countersunk attachment bolts. The phosphorus bronze slide plates, with machined grooves on the underside are placed on top of the stainless steel plates.
To allow for lubrication between to the contact surfaces of the two slide plates, grease is added through a fitting on the side of the bronze slide plate. The fitting allows access to a channel in the center of the bronze slide plate that leads to the grooves. A hole is located in the 2″ thick base plate to allow for grout to be poured through after installation.
We’ve been making some big changes on our pre-insulated pipe support online catalog. These changes have made it a lot easier for you to navigate the site and find the best hot or cold pipe shoe to fit your needs!
Some of the new features include:
– Drop down menu
- Catalog Search Box
- Catalog Price Request form Embedded in Page
- Easy to navigate glossary of terms
…and more! We look forward to serving your pre-insulated pipe support needs.
The structural pipe supports are fabricated from carbon steel and coated with red oxide primer. The structural steel will be stored in a warehouse for several months while the power plant is being built. Due to the plant’s location along the United States East Coast, the use of the red oxide primer was selected. Also, modifications were made to our standard “insulation saddles” to allow for a higher load capacity; which can be seen in the foreground of the image above.
