Front View

These low-temperature base supports are fabricated from carbon steel with a hot dipped galvanize finish and range from 23″ to 37″ in height. The supports are 18″ in diameter with a base plate of 20″W x 20″L x 1″H and are designed to support pipes ranging in size from 24″ to 30″. The base supports are fabricated with micarta insulation and will be utilized in a LNG plant as a base beneath a cold temperature pipe.

Sway Strut Assemblies with Custom Designed 3-Bolt Pipe Clamps

Sway Strut Assemblies with Custom Designed 3-Bolt Pipe Clamps

These sway strut assemblies are designed in conjunction with custom three-bolt clamps to prevent movement on the pipeline. The sway struts range in length from 25″ to 70″ from pin to pin. The operating load ranges between 8,000 lb. to 15,000 lb. The clamps are designed for pipe sizes ranging from 8″ to 24″. The sway strut assemblies are fabricated entirely from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanize finish. The completed assemblies also include a custom 2-coat paint system that was applied over the galvanize finish before being shipped to an LNG plant overseas.

Sway Braces

These PT&P sway braces are fabricated from carbon steel and measure 126″ from pin to pin. They use an integral piston assembly with guide to eliminate any buckling and/or misalignment during extension and compression. The sway braces are designed for 10 1/2″ of travel and a load of 1,500 lb. A combination of standard spring coils is used to achieve the required spring rate of 150 lb./in.

Prior to shipment, a test was performed using a hydraulic ram. This test simulated actual field conditions and allowed the sway brace to move through the entire travel range in both compression and extension modes.

Side View of Pipe Saddles

PT&P custom designed seventy-eight figure 2000 heavy duty pipe saddles for two 24″ insulated ductile iron pipelines. The two pipelines are routed beneath a 650′ bridge crossing over a river in upper New York State. The insulation is 3″ thick with high density polyethylene jacketing. Axial movements due to expansion can approach 3″. In order for the jacketing to avoid being damaged when displacements occur, the saddles have been lined with polished stainless steel.

Ball-Joint Sway Strut Assemblies (20,000 lb. load, 96" long)

Ball-Joint Sway Strut Assemblies (20,000 lb. load, 96" long)

The overall length of each sway strut is 96 inches. The pipe hanger assembly is designed to control 20,000 lb. of piping load during the system’s thermal expansion and contraction.

These sway struts have a ball joint located at each end connected by an extension rod that controls the piping system through its complete range of thermal piping movements. It is used to restrain movement of piping in one direction while providing for movement due to thermal expansion or contraction in another direction.

Carbon Steel Limit Stops

Carbon Steel Limit Stops

These limit stops are fabricated from carbon steel with stainless steel inner components. These supports function to prevent excessive stress on the pipe by limiting motion due to earthquakes or other similar events.

They range in size between 20 7/8″ and 22 7/8″ from pin to pin. The load ranges between 12,500 lb. and 21,100 lb. The limit stops are passive restraints that are designed for a maximum thermal expansion of 5″, but can be preset for any specified amount of movement. They will be utilized in an oil refinery overseas.
