Anchor Bolts with Polyethylene Sleeves

June 4th, 2000 No comments

 

Anchor Bolts with Polyethylene Sleeves

Anchor Bolts with Polyethylene Sleeves

The photograph above shows anchor bolts, which are to be set in concrete with only a short portion above the surface. They are used to anchor equipment to a concrete slab by attaching to the bolts. Several of these at the top of the picture have polyethylene sleeves, which keep the wet concrete away from the bolt just below the surface. This makes it easier to make slight adjustments to the position of the bolt during attachment to the equipment which is to be anchored.

Specially Fabricated Pipe Supports

Specially Fabricated Pipe Supports

The photo above shows three different supports fabricated by Piping Technology & Products, Inc. for a petrochemical facility in Indonesia. The smallest support, (lower right) show the interior layer of polyurethane projecting out of the outside layer. This allows the pipe insulation to overlap when installed. These units provide insulation between the very cold fluid inside the pipe and the hot, humid conditions outside. They also support the weight of the pipe and allow for movement due to thermal expansion and contraction. Micarta was used for certain supports which require greater strength.

Wet Air Fan Cyclone for High Density Polyethylene Project

Wet Air Fan Cyclone for High Density Polyethylene Project

Sweco Fab, Inc., a wholly subsidiary of Piping Technology & Products, Inc., and an ASME and API code vessel shop recently unveiled their design of a wet air fan cyclone for a new high density polyethylene project.

The barrel, which is a twenty-one feet long, tapers upward from a twelve-inch diameter base to a six foot diameter top. Ears on the exterior of the barrel are provided for support and alignment. Air inlet is designed to mate with other components forming part of the process equipment. The fan cowling has outboard ears to facilitate ease of test, assembly and maintenance. The cyclone was rolled and formed from ¼ inch carbon steel and weighs 4,000 lb.

Specially Designed Upthrust Constants

Specially Designed Upthrust Constants

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. announces the latest design of their “Horizontal Upthrust” base type constant support. The table or load flange move straight up or down as the weight of the pipe is transferred to the helical coil (spring) via the internal camlinkage. PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide bearings on the four corners eliminate the possibility of binding if undue axial or lateral forces are exerted. Also, PTFE, 25% glass filled, or graphite slide bearings can be added to the table to ease movement along the axis of the pipe. The Big-Ton and Type F Base Constant Supports are still available for other applications.]

Value-Added Marking and Packaging

The photograph above shows a number of fabricated components of a piping system being marked for individual packaging before shipment to the construction site at a chemical plant. The markings correspond to the assembly drawings which are used during construction to assure the many little components are efficiently installed to meet a demanding schedule. Piping Technology & Products, Inc. prepared the detail drawings and fabricated all components for a series of four projects for chemical plants in USA.

Mechanical Snubbers

Mechanical Snubbers

Mechanical Snubbers

The two pictures above show mechanical snubbers which are used to limit the velocity of movement of piping systems when sudden accelerations caused by earthquakes, extreme wind loads or water hammer occur. These devices are designed with a brake drum which is activated by sudden movement. During gradual movement, such as would be expected during thermal expansion, the brake is not activated. Mechanical snubbers do not depend on hydraulic principles so they do not require maintenance during normal operation. The top picture shows the pins and swivel bearings used to link these snubbers to the system it will protect. The bottom pictures shows our inventory maintained for emergency deliver.

Hydraulic Snubbers

Hydraulic Snubbers

The two pictures above show hydraulic snubbers which are used to limit the velocity of movement of piping systems when sudden accelerations caused by earthquakes, extreme wind loads or water hammer occur. These devices are designed so slow movement, such as would be expected during thermal expansion, has practically no resistance, but sudden rapid movement is resisted with a force proportional to the velocity raised to a power where the power is determined by the orifice valve and flow pattern in the design. Selection of materials and liquids used will depend on the environment where the snubber is installed. The snubber at the bottom has a ball joint attached for linkage with the system it will protect.

Bellmouth Reducers

The picture above shows four bellmouth reducers which have just received the final coat of a special paint. These are components of the cooling water piping system designed for large, new petrochemical complex. The bell shape is a segment of an ellipse chosen to function as a vortex breaker during high velocity flow.
