November 12th, 2015 Comments off

This webinar is over… view the recording at: http://www.pipingtech.com/news/webinars/webinar_archives.html

Live Webinars are worth 1 PDH Credit for TX Professional Engineers

Engineered Spring Supports

Learn how the theoretical applications of spring supports are put into use in the real world. We will start with a review of the working principles of both variable and constant springs. See how brand new spring looks at delivery, and review installation guidelines. Learn the key points to review through the total installation process and subsequently when the springs are in operation. See how to determine if springs need adjustments, re-calibration, refurbishment or replacement. View in field examples, shutdown and isolation procedures. See the selection process required when there are significant changes to the operating condition.

The featured presenter, Jerry Godina has over 16 years experience as a pipe support designer and manages PT&P’s engineer training development program. He also inspects existing supports, consults on site remediation projects and oversees installation on a regular basis.

Custom Designed Pipe Hanger & Clamp Assemblies for a Flue-gas Desulfurization Application

PT&P custom designed pipe hanger and clamp assemblies for a flue-gas desulfurization application in an energy facility located in Kansas. The assemblies are designed for pipes ranging in size from 2-1/2″ to 6″ in diameter, and are capable of a 650 lb. operating load. Materials include tube steel, fig. 92 washer, fig. 122 all threaded rod, fig. 30 turnbuckle, fig. 40 weldless eyenut and fig. 70 pipe clamp.

Insulated Pipe Supports Designed for Cryogenic and High Temperature Pipe Systems for an Ammonia Project

Insulated Pipe Supports Designed for Cryogenic and High Temperature Pipe Systems for an Ammonia Project

PT&P custom designed 98 insulated pipe supports for an ammonia project at a chemical plant in Louisiana. The supports were designed for cryogenic and high temperature pipe systems, with a 8″ to 22″ baseplate width and 10″ to 28″ saddle length. They were designed for pipe diameters of 6″-24″ and are comprised of polyurethane foam for cryogenic and FTM insulation for high temperatures. Standard Q.C. and dimensional tests were performed prior to shipment.

Stainless Steel Roller Stands Custom Designed for a Wastewater Treatment Plant

Stainless Steel Roller Stands Custom Designed for a Wastewater Treatment Plant

PT&P designed spring loaded stainless steel roller stands for a wastewater treatment plant. The rollers were custom designed for ease of assembly to support a 30″ diameter pipeline. They include eight springs in two spring housings and are designed for 1,000 lb. load. The base plate is 18-3/4″ x 13″ and the BOP is 10-3/16″. Roller stands are used to support pipelines that expand and contract longitudinally in the axial direction and where vertical adjustment is not necessary.

F-Type Variable Spring Supports Designed for a Chemical Processing Plant

F-Type Variable Spring Supports Designed for a Chemical Processing

PT&P manufactured F-type variable spring supports for a chemical processing plant in Texas. The variables are designed with an internal guide and for a movement of 0.09″. They are designed for a 5,350 lb. cold load and 5,450 lb. hot load. Because these springs had to be capable of withstanding a hydro-test in excess of 33,000 lb. (which substantially exceeded the standard maximum hydro-test of 18,000 lb.), special collars were used in conjunction with the standard travel stops. These collars are designed to absorb the large hydro load by relying on the high strength characteristics of the load flange and housing components of the assembly while essentially bypassing the threaded internal components.

Constant Spring Supports Designed for a Steam Methane Reformer

May 10th, 2015 Comments off

Constant Spring Supports Designed for a Steam Methane Reformer
PT&P manufactured Fig. PTP 100-E constant spring supports for a steam methane reformer plant project in Thailand. The constant springs are designed for a pipe operating temperature from 650°F to 1250°F and an operating load of 3,355 lb. with a movement of 13″ upward. The constants are fabricated from carbon steel and painted with an epoxy for high temperatures. Standard load and travel test were completed prior to shipment.

G-Type Variable Spring Supports Designed for a Coker Replacement Project

G-Type Variable Spring Supports Designed for a Coker Replacement Project

PT&P fabricated PTP-6 G-type variable spring supports for a coker replacement project in Kansas. The variables are comprised of two standard spring housing joined together with an intermediate bridge assembly. The bridge assembly is customized to match existing site conditions which allows for use in applications with limited space or interferences. They are 50″ in length, designed for an operating load of 15,000 lb. and fabricated from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. All variable assemblies underwent standard load and spring testing prior to shipment.

Custom Designed Upthrust Constant Spring Supports

Custom Designed Upthrust Constant Spring Supports

PT&P designed Fig. PTP 200-U upthrust constant spring supports modified to accommodate an increased installed height. PT&P fabricated these constant assemblies from A36 carbon steel. They were designed for temperatures up to 185°F, and a load of 15,737 lb. The constants are capable of a downward total travel of 2″ and are 61″ L x 25″ W x 39″ H. Standard load and travel tests were conducted prior to shipment.
