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.

60" diameter Flue Gas Duct

60" diameter Flue Gas Duct

Sweco Fab, Inc. designed and manufactured a Flue Gas Duct, weighing over 66,000 lbs. and 18′-5 in length, for an oil refinery in Detroit, Michigan. The duct is designed to transport hot gases from the regenerator to the flue gas cooler. The walls are 1/2 thick with a high-density vibracast refractory lining. The rest of the unit was fabricated out of carbon steel SA-516-70 and is designed for a maximum pressure of 51 PSIG and maximum temperature of 1450°F.

Leak examinations where performed on the unit after fabrication, which included a10 percent x-ray test, a100 percent dye-pen test and a hydrotest at 77 PSIG.

 27' x 16' x 21' Structural Frame for an Offshore Site

PT&P custom designed and fabricated a 27′ x 16′ x 21′ structural frame to be placed on the sea-bed for an offshore rig. This assembly will be used as an undersea cable support frame, capable of withstanding a load of 600 Kilonewtons (68,000 lbs for each pad). It is constructed of 8 tube-steel, a 10 channel, and a steel plate. The frame will remain stationary on the sea-bed and is designed to endure heavy wave action when lowered to or raised from the sea-bed.

Finite element analysis of the lifting lug on the structure was performed to verify load conditions.  A trial fit-up of bolted sections was also conducted to ensure the structural frame will assemble easily before being placed in position.
