Various Sized Cold Shoes for a Chemical Plant

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and manufactured 250 variable sized cold shoes for a chemical plant in Texas.

These cold shoes are designed for cryogenic (low temperature) pipelines where direct contact with the pipe cannot be made.  These shoes come with two pieces, top and bottom, and are made of polyurethane foam.  They are then wrapped in vapor barriers, covered with a protective shield and placed in a pipe saddle.

Various Sized Saddles for a Power Project

Various Sized Saddles for a Power Project

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and manufactured saddles for a power project in California.

The saddles were built for 12″, 24″ and 30″ pipe and the loads varied from 1,500 pounds to a maximum design load of 20,000 pounds. The saddle and its components will hang from a beam in the field by spring hangers to complete what is known as a “trapeze” pipe hanger assembly. In order to prevent movement, the supported pipes will be secured to the curved portion of the saddle with u-bolts.

If you are in need of pipe saddles, let us know! We would be glad to help you.

Big Ton Springs Equipped with Special Rollers

Rollers Installed On top of the Load Flanges

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. specially designed and fabricated big ton springs equipped with special rollers to accommodate moving apparatus and support piping at a refinery in India.

The specially designed big tons were made to support loads ranging from 55,000 lbs. to 114,000 lbs with no more than 5/16″ upward movement. Its composition comprises of A-36 carbon steel, built to a maximum height of 23-5/8″.

The special rollers installed on the top of the load flange, keeps the aforementioned loads moving smoothly under all kinds of conditions. To further assure their quality, each of the big ton spring assemblies underwent load testing and afterward were hot dipped galvanized to prevent against corrosion.

Sludge Tank Vent Ducts

Sweco Fab, Inc. recently designed and manufactured sludge tank vent ducts for a development project in Chad, Africa.

Due to the thin wall and height of the cylinder shell it was required to add a stiffing ring between the cylinder shell and flange. Each duct was 12 ¼” I.D. x 104 7/8″ high and weighed approximately 96 pounds. They were painted inside and out per System 6E grey color.

PT&P Custom Designs and Fabricates Big Ton Springs Equipped with Lifting Lugs

Big Ton Springs

Big Ton Springs

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. specially designed and fabricated big ton springs equipped with side lifting lugs to support piping of a 102-megawatt, refinery co-generation power plant in California.

Under typical circumstances, this type of job application would utilize variable spring hangers, but because of the restricted space, the hangers’ size would be too small to support a hot load of 19,068 lbs and cold load of 17,212 lbs.  In order to satisfy both the required loads and space, PT&P engineers designed and fabricated figure 500 big ton springs equipped with side lifting lugs. The lifting lugs were attached to allow the big ton to suspend as a variable spring would in the field.

The big ton springs are comprised of A-36 carbon steel and built at 13″x 23″x 9-1/2″ with a downward travel of .232″. The job was completed within two days to meet the customer’s quick turn requirements.

Introducing PT&P’s Maintenance Free Slide Plates, Bronzphites®

Piping Technology and Products is a supplier of maintenance free slide bearing plates, Bronzphite®, whose high strength bearings and impregnated graphite, together create a concoction ideal for maintaining excellent wear resistance and durability under severe operating conditions. PT&P has supplied Bronzphite® for a number of companies in the oil, gas and power industry.

Constants For Constricted Areas of a Chemical Processing Plant

Constants For Constricted Areas of a Chemical Processing Plant

Constants For Constricted Areas of a Chemical Processing Plant

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. custom designed and fabricated 200-C type constants to suit constricted areas of a chemical processing plant in Texas.

Short distances between the pipe and the supporting beam necessitated a custom design. Two designs were needed one was for a 230 lb. load with 11″down travel, while the other was for a 260 lb. load with 13-1/2″ down travel. The PT&P standard design for these constants has Take-Out values of 19-9/16″ and 21-9/16″, respectively. However, the available space permitted no more than 9-1/2″.

Compare the final design, shown on the left to the standard design, shown on the right. Note that the lower part of the frame has been cut away, permitting the pipe to move nearer to the constants’ supporting lugs.

PT&P’s system of stock pipe and spring supports, allowed engineers and workers to fabricate these constants within a short amount of time.

Cylinder Pipe Guides

Cylinder Pipe Guides

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and manufactured cylinder pipe guides for an energy center in Canada.

These guides, which are frequently referred to as spider guides, are designed to control lateral pipe movement and maintain the alignment of the piping through its axial and contraction cycles. A single piping run uses spider guides in number to avoid a fulcrum or an imposed lateral deflection on critical components.

These spider guides were designed for pipes ranging from 1″ to 20″ diameter with 1″ to 4″ of insulation. The components include carbon steel plates, stock clamps, angles and green-primer coated pipes. The outer shields have diameters ranging of approximately 6″ to 29-1/2″ with a bottom-of-angle to center-of-pipe dimensions of 3-1/8″ to 15-3/4″. The maximum design temperature for the spider guides is 750°F.

40 Clamp Attachments for a Petrochemical Plant

40 Clamp Attachments for a Petrochemical Plant

The clamp attachments shown are used for supporting vertical pipe sections to vessel clip anchors. These braces are designed for a maximum horizontal moment of 15,000 ft-lb at the vessel clip. All the clamps provided were made of carbon steel with a hot-dip-galvanized finish. The pipe hanger assembly lengths were fabricated per specifications provided by the client.

The clamp components were designed and fabricated for non-standard pipe diameters (i.e. 13-3/4″, 16-1/2″) so that they could be used on insulated or finned pipelines.
