Rotary Valve for a Manufacturing Facility

Rotary Valve for a Manufacturing Facility

Sweco Fab, Inc. recently fabricated a M-1318 Rotary Valve Assembly composed of a stainless steel hopper, double reduction gear, drive cover, and a sprocket & chain drive. The valve is powered by a 1/2 hp, 3 phase electric motor. This particular piece will be used in a plastic processing company. Rotary valves can be fabricated in different assembly formations and can be altered based upon customer needs.

PT&P Aids in the Construction of an Oil Refinery

PT&P Aids in the Construction of an Oil Refinery

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. has designed and manufactured over 177 tons of supports for the Chad/Cameroon Development Project in Chad, Africa. Adjustable Base Supports designed to support pipe size ranging from 3 to 18″ in diameter were one type of the many supports fabricated for this project.

PT&P Aids in the Construction of an Oil Refinery

Pipe Stands

Each of the hot-dipped galvanized pipe stands has an 8″x8″ base plate and a midrange height of 12″. The pipe stands allow for a maximum travel of +/- 3″. These supports provide for easy adjustment in the field when supporting pipe trunnions on concrete pads or foundations. In addition, these pipe stands have a major advantage when the exact installation heights are not known at the remote job site.

Other supports including constants and variables spring hangers, rigid rod hangers, structural steel, FRP pads, and pre-insulated pipe supports were also manufactured in a range of different specifications and materials.

200 U-Type Constants with 46″ of Travel

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. recently designed and manufactured 200 U-Type upthrust constants for a geothermal plant in Hawaii. The constant pictured on the left has frame dimensions of W 40″ x H 75″ x L 142″, a constant load of 9,888 lb. to 10,239 lb. and a design travel of 46″. It also utilizes rollers and PTFE, 25% glass filled slide plates to reduce the friction resulting from axial movements. All the constants in this project are composed of A36 carbon steel. Standard load testing and travel testing were conducted prior to shipment.

Special Application Variable Springs and Constant Supports

Special Application Variable Springs and Constant Supports

The three pictures above show materials being crated for shipment overseas. At the top center are pallets of variable springs designed for 10” of movement and 1000 pound load. This unusual combination of requirements is satisfied by an unusually long coil. This project required 700 of these variables. At the bottom center are constant supports designed for 14” of movement with loads near 2000 pounds. This large movement, unusual for this load, requires the large arc seen in the frame of the constant body. Two hundred of these constants were required. These spring supports are painted with a shop prime.
