Material: Polyurethane Foam and Carbon Steel with HDG Finish
Design: 18″ Pipe and Cryogenic Operating Temperatures
Testing: Standard Quality Control Tests

These 3-layer pre-insulated cryogenic pipe shoes were custom fabricated by Piping Technology& Products for a light hydrocarbon chemical plant in Texas. The insulation foam is made from polyurethane and the rest of the shoe components from carbon steel with HDG finish. The cold shoes are designed for 18″ pipe, the 3-layers of insulation total is 5.5″ thick, the clamps are 12″ wide, and cryogenic operating temperature. Standard quality control tests were performed prior to shipment.

Mechanical Snubbers for a Refinery in Oklahoma

Type: Mechanical Snubbers
Size: Size MSA-10, 36″ OAL, and 30 1/2″ Pin-To-Pin
Material: Carbon Steel with HDG Finish
Design: Operating load of 15,000 lbs and a 6″ Maximum Stroke
Testing: Standard Load Tests

Piping Technology & Products supplied these mechanical snubbers with two end brackets, fabricated from carbon steel with an HDG finish for a refinery in Oklahoma. They are size MSA-10, 36″ OAL, and 30 1/2″ pin-to-pin. The snubbers are designed for an operating load of 15,000 lbs and have a 6″ maximum stroke. Standard load tests were performed prior to shipment. Mechanical snubbers have two modes of operation. In passive mode, i.e., motion caused by thermal loads, the resisting mechanism is disengaged and the snubber “free wheels” with very low resistance. In active mode the mechanism is engaged, and the snubber limits the acceleration to a low threshold value.
