100-B Type Constants

100-B Type Constants

Two Constants

These PTP 100-B type constants were fabricated from A36 carbon steel. They are vertical constants designed to suspend from a beam to support pipes. These constants are capable of handling loads of up to 31,000 lbs. and have a total travel capacity of 3. Each measured 25 long, 13 wide, and 71 tall and weighed 1,850 lbs. Standard load and travel testing were completed to ensure the quality and performance of these constants.

Constant Hanger Supports for a Power Recovery Plant

Constant Hanger Supports for a Power Recovery Plant

Constant Hanger Supports for a Power Recovery Plant

Constant support hangers are used to support pipes subjected to vertical movement. The (Fig. PTP 200) constants are designed to support loads from 4,000 lbs to 57,000 lbs. Each weighs approximately 1,500 lbs to 2500 lbs and has a travel of up to 4″ with an adjustable travel stop. Their sizes range from 15 to 100.

The advantage of an adjustable travel stop is that the constant is able to “lock in” at any position within the range of travel for a given constant. This alleviates the need for a total “shut down” of the piping system for temporary conditions such as hydrotesting, repair, or replacement.

Cylinder Pipe Guides for a Power Plant

Cylinder Pipe Guides on Shipping Floor

Piping Technology and Products, Inc. designed and fabricated cylinder pipe guides (aka spider guides) for pipes ranging from 1” to 20” in diameter with 1” to 4” of insulation.

Cylinder Pipe Guides for a Power Plant

Cylinder Pipe Guides

These guides are designed to control lateral pipe movement and maintain the alignment of the piping through its axial and contraction cycles. A single piping run uses multiple spider guides to avoid a fulcrum or an imposed lateral deflection on critical components.

Components of these guides include carbon steel plates, stock clamps, angles and hot-dipped galvanized pipes. The outer shields have diameters ranging from 6″ to 29-1/2″. The maximum design temperature for the spider guides is 750°F.

In addition to spider guides, over 40,000 lbs. of material were supplied for this project including variable springs, constants, and miscellaneous structural items.
