Mechanical Snubbers for a Refinery

Mechanical Snubbers for a Refinery

Sizes of mechanical snubbers for this project range between 18″ and 80″ in the retracted position. The maximum load capacity ranges between 700 and 10,000 lb. Mechanical snubbers function to restrain thermal movement in abnormal circumstances such as earthquakes, hydraulic hammer, and upstream pipe rupture. The snubbers were tested at both high and low rates of loading on a computer controlled hydraulic test machine to ensure quality assurance.

U-Type Upthrust Constant Supports

These U-type upthrust constant supports are designed to handle 6″ of total travel and loads of 5,677 lb. and 4,956 lb. The load flange is modified to hold six ball transfer units for each support. The ball transfer units are used to decrease the coefficient of friction to 0.05 compared to using the standard PTFE, 25% glass filled, which is 0.15.

U-Type Upthrust Constant Supports

Ball Transfer Units

Gussets are added under the load flange to maintain a leveled surface and an equal load transfer to all ball transfer units. These custom designed constant supports are manufactured for steam power plant superheaters.

Personnel Protection Shields for High Temperature Lines

The personnel protection shields are used when insulating the line is not necessary, but operating temperatures require safeguarding personnel from coming into contact with the pipe. These shields are designed for 8″ pipe operating at 800°F, and are made of 304 stainless expanded steel rolled to a 20″ diameter.

Sway Braces with Ball Joints

These special sway braces that are subject to the banana effect were designed to specific requirements for a Coker Plant in Texas. With deflection capability of up to plus or minus 9″ in all directions, these sway braces are used to stabilize tall stacks. Five springs in tandem prevent binding during operation, and are necessary due to extreme length. The sway braces ranged from 70″ to 144″ in length and can handle up to 8,000 lbs. The precision machined pivoting ball joints positioned at each end allow for freedom of movement in any unpredictable direction.
