PT&P in the Community: Back To School

September 11th, 2017 Comments off

Piping Technology & Products joins the Houston Independent School District in giving back to the community.

 

PT&P Partners with University of Houston’s College of Technology

July 25th, 2013 Comments off

July 25, 2013, Houston, TX – In an effort to expand our community presence and help students expand their education and interests, Piping Technology & Products is excited to announce our new partnership with the University of Houston’s College of Technology. As the goal of the UH College of Technology is to provide the highest quality education in fields such as mechanical engineering, construction management, and computer engineering, so is Piping Technology’s goal to help educate people interested in these fields as a public service to the community. As online courses become the norm for many colleges these days, PT&P realized this would be the perfect way to combine our thirty five years of manufacturing experience  with the UH College of Technology’s established reputation.

University of Houston - College of TechnologyThis new online course is titled “Piping Design & Analysis Influence on Pipe Support Selection andDesign”. The course covers the following topics: piping design and how it effects the overall configuration on preliminary piping design, initial layout, the total system, introduction to pipe stress analysis, detailed piping design, and how all of this influences pipe support and pipe hanger design. This is a self-paced course consisting of eight sections. The student will have four weeks to complete the eight sessions, which must be taken in sequential order. This is an online course only, with no classroom meetings required.

This course is approved for 8 PDH hours for Texas Professional Engineers.

The College of Technology at the University of Houston was established over seventy years ago and offers numerous fully accredited undergraduate courses and masters’ degrees through three departments: Engineering Technology, Human Development and Consumer Sciences, Information and Logistics Technology.

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. is headquartered in Houston, TX and began business in 1978. PT&P and its wholly owned subsidiaries (U.S. Bellows, Inc., Sweco Fab, Inc., Pipe Shields, Inc., and Fronek Anchor/Darling Enterprises, Inc.) offer a wide range of engineered products and services for various industries and applications.

PT&P signed for Power Project in Puerto Rico

October 24th, 1998 No comments

PT&P has a contract to provide the fabricated pipe supports and the cold shoes on a power plant in Puerto Rico. Imported liquid natural gas will be the primary fuel for the plant.  PT&P cold shoes will be important to support the piping from the LNG storage tanks to the power plant. PT&P has worked on power projects in Rhode Island and Beaumont, Texas. Currently, PT&P is working on power projects in China, Malaysia and various sites in the United States.

Basic Engineers Auction Yields Manufacturing Machinery
A supplier of pipe supports, Basic Engineers (BE) of Johnstown, PA decided to close its business in late 1997. In May 1998, the company held an auction to liquidate BE’s manufacturing equipment.  PT&P acquired the majority of Basic Engineers’ assets, including its test equipment for snubbers.  For additional information on snubbers, please refer to our Mobility Test article.

Fall Open House Set For November 4
PT&P’s workforce of over 350 dedicated employees will welcome guests at this year’s Fall open house, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Wednesday, November 4. The celebration will be at the plant: 3701 Holmes Rd. in Houston, Texas.  Those who attend will be treated to a luncheon and have the opportunity to register for door prizes including a pentium computer, golf clubs and sports bags.

High School Drafting Students Visit PT&P

October 4th, 1998 No comments

Thirty-six students in the drafting program at the Houston Independent School District’s Barbara Jordan High School for Careers spent a Friday morning in November 1997 learning how technical drawings are used during the fabrication of pipe supports, pressure vessels, expansion joints and other items produced at PT&P.

After an introductory review of PT&P’s business and a one-hour lecture covering specific projects requiring drawings (made more palatable by cookies) the students took a tour of PT&P’s plant. Students saw shears, saws and burning machines cutting metal pieces to be welded. In another area, they saw how a metal sheet is seam welded and then formed into bellows elements for expansion joints. They also saw how polyurethane components are produced for cryogenic pipe supports.

High School Visit

The tour was arranged by Wilford Stewart, who teaches drafting at BJHS. The first course in the program is a traditional technical drawing board course, followed by courses on computer-aided drafting using AutoCAD. Students must take Algebra and Geometry concurrently with their drafting. Jesse Porter, Sr. Graphics Manager at PT&P, conducted the tour (see photo).

PT&P looks forward to having young people from the school district learn about how they can put what they learn to good use in industry. By supporting the public schools, PT&P hopes to show it cares about the future of education.

Open House 1995

November 15th, 1995 No comments

On November 11 of this year, Piping Technology once again hosted its annual Open House. Representatives from dozens of firms came from all areas to meet the PT&P team and to explore our impressive facilities. Close to 300 people passed through PT&P for the Open House and got a good look at what the future holds for our dynamic company.

Visitors got a chance to see first-hand the plans for our expansion, to view our new company video, to observe ongoing jobs in the shop and, of course, to stop for a delicious bite to eat along the way. Open House guests also went home with some souvenirs of their visit, from spring cans to PT&P caps to slide plate samples. And several lucky winners also received valuable door prizes won in a drawing.

The 1994 Open House was a great success, thanks to everyone who came. We are already getting excited about 1995 and the next chance to show you all the things that Piping Technology & Products, Inc. has to offer. Of course, you are always welcome to stop by the plant for a tour of the facilities at any time. We can’t wait to see you again next fall, or whenever you get a chance to come and visit.
