Mechanical Snubber Assemblies Custom Designed for an Oil Refinery

Mechanical Snubber Assemblies Custom Designed for an Oil Refinery

Mechanical Snubber Assemblies
This week’s feature is on mechanical snubber assemblies custom designed for an oil refinery in California. This project included twenty mechanical snubber assemblies with load ratings from 16,000 lb. to 40,000 lb. and lengths ranging from 65-1/2″ to 103-1/2″. Some of the snubbers were designed to double the standard stroke (up to 12″) by using two MSA-10 sized snubbers back-to-back. All the assemblies were custom designed by adding a carbon steel pipe extension piece. Load tests were performed and the assemblies were shipped in just under four weeks.

Custom Designed Variable Spring Supports with Stainless Steel Slide Plates

Custom Designed Variable Spring Supports with Stainless Steel Slide Plates

This custom designed variable spring assembly is comprised of a standard PTP-1-160 type F variable spring with a supplementary extension and load flange with a stainless steel slide plate. The variable is fabricated entirely from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanize finish. The extension is schedule 40 pipe, 8″ in diameter and 12-5/16″ in height. The slide plate is fabricated from A240 grade stainless steel and is welded to the top of the load flange. This support will be used underneath a 16″ diameter pipe with a dummy leg. It is designed for 1/16″ vertical travel and 1/8″ horizontal travel for an oil refinery in Algeria.

Custom Designed Pipe Clamp-Guides for an LNG facility

These pipe clamp-guides were custom designed and fabricated for a 4″ pipe vertical run in an LNG facility. They measure 16″ from the bottom of the W-beam to the centerline of pipe and designed for temperatures up to 750°F. The clamp-guides were fabricated from carbon steel and include a hot-dipped galvanize finish.

insulated pipe supports designed for cryogenic temperatures down to 320°F in an LNG facility

A total of 295 cryogenic pipe supports ranging from 4″ to 38″ NPS were designed for a LNG regasification facility in India. The shoe and bearing plates were fabricated from carbon steel, the jacket was fabricated from aluminized steel and includes a vapor barrier. 20 PCF high density polyurethane foam was used for the insulation.

Pig Launcher and Receiver with a Flag Indicator

PT&P’s Sweco Fab division designed and manufactured a pig launcher and receiver with a flag type  indicator and a flanged HI-T Pig Alert pig signaler. They are fabricated from carbon steel with a three coat paint system. The pig launcher has an 8” diameter minor barrel, a 10” diameter major barrel, and is 110” in overall length. The pig receiver has a 10” major barrel, a GD II Closure and is 170” in overall length. They are designed for 430 psig at 100°F and were hydro-tested at 645 psig , held for four hours. Both pig launcher and receiver went through a 100% radiography test prior to shipment.

Pre-Insulated Pipe Supports with 12" Thick Insulation Designed for a 49" High Temperature Line

PT&P fabricated pre-insulated pipe supports from galvanized carbon steel designed for a 49″ diameter pipe and temperatures in excess of 1600°F. The insulation is 12″ thick and composed of lime, silica and reinforcing fibers. This type of insulation features exceptional strength and extremely low water absorption. It is essentially dust-free, contains no asbestos and is a very good material for structural insulation inserts. This “hot shoe” will be used in a cat cracker unit at a refinery in Alabama.

Constant Spring Supports Designed with Special Lugs for Connecting to a Trolley

These PT&P 200 series constants are fabricated from A36 carbon steel. The 200-A constants measure 18.5″w x 20″H x 65″L and will support a 22,200 lb. load. They are modified to avoid interference with the structure by shortening the frame. The 200-C constants measure 18.5″w x 29″H x 80″L and will support a 32,000 lb. load. The constants have specially fabricated lugs to allow for a 3 ton trolley to connect with it.

Do you have a need for constants in a current or upcoming project? Let us price them for you! access-our-webinar-archives
