84" Diameter Seawall Outfall Flow Regulating Device

Sweco Fab, Inc. recently designed and manufactured a 30,000 lb. Seawall Outfall Flow Regulating Device for a sea water outlet in Qatar. This 320 long flow conditioner is designed to allow water to flow through evenly. There are nineteen 16 FRP pipes inside an 84 diameter carbon steel pipe. The pipe bundle is secured within the 84 diameter shell pipe using spring washers, which keep the bundle tight and allows for differential expansion between the steel and FRP.

6000 lb. Load Hot Shoe with Adjustable Lateral Stops for an Oil Refinery

Drawing of Custom Hot Shoe

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. recently assisted in the design and fabrication of a special hot shoe with adjustable lateral stops for an oil refinery in LA. The shoe assembly is designed to support loads up to 6000 lb. and to guide pipes that may reach up to 1200°F. The hot shoe consists of a 12 thick mineral wool insulation, an inner clamp surrounded by four load transfer plates, an outer guiding clamp, and four guide assemblies with PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide plates. The load transfer plates provide support and prevent damage to the insulation between the inner and outer guiding clamp.

The guide assemblies (comprised of the four guides on the shoe and the adjustable stops) are designed to account for lateral, vertical, and axial movement. PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide plates are used to minimize friction caused by movement between the shoe and the adjustable stops. The adjustable stops are fabricated from a 1 x 12 x 19 carbon steel plate with four rods and two angles. These allow for flexibility in adjusting the distance/gap within each guide assembly to control movement.

Riser Clamp Assemblies with Neoprene Lining

Piping Technology and Products, Inc. custom designed eight sets of riser clamp assemblies for an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. These riser clamp assemblies were fabricated from API 2H GR. 50 carbon steel. They were designed to support vertical pipe lines on an offshore platform. Each set equipped with a neoprene lining consists of two clamps and a clamp stand. Several coats of marine paint finish were applied to the assemblies to prevent corrosion due to high salt water content and open air exposure.
