Adjustable Pipe Stands to Support Ductile Iron Pipe

May 2nd, 2007 No comments

 

Adjustable Pipe Stands to Support Ductile Iron Pipe

Adjustable Pipe Stands to Support Ductile Iron Pipe

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and fabricated adjustable pipe stands to support ductile iron pipe. Due to ductile iron pipes having non-standard diameters, each of the supports were custom fabricated per the customers’ requirements regarding pipe diameter and elevation. All the supports were fabricated from carbon steel with an HDG finish and designed to provide nine inches (+/- 4.50″) of adjustment and each support has an 11″ x 11″ base plate.

(Left) Cradle type supports are designed with an installed height of 84″ from the base to the bottom of pipe (BOP).

(Middle) Flange type supports are designed with an installed height of 81-1/4″ from the base to the BOP.

(Right) Tee type supports are designed for an installed height of 77″ from base to BOP.

They will be used on horizontal piping and will be attached at their base to pre-case concrete pedestals. Each base plate has been pre-drilled to accept anchor bolts provided at the site. The pipe stand’s threaded adjustment column will allow field personnel to adjust the height of each support. They can also accurately place the pipe at the required elevation without using shims or modifying the concrete pedestal.

24" Pipe Shoe with Clamps

24" Pipe Shoe with Clamps

This particular 24″ pipe shoe was specially designed and fabricated during a planned plant outage. Instead of the normal delivery time of 3-4 weeks, Piping Technology & Products, Inc. finished this project in just one week. This pipe shoe with clamps was designed for 12,900 lb. vertical and 3,000 lb. lateral load. This 1″ thick carbon steel pipe shoe was designed to handle 650°F and has a PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide plate installed to allow for axial movement.

60 Bolt Cradle Supports

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. custom fabricated sixty bolt cradle supports in May 2006. The base was fabricated by welding two plates to form a “T.” This was used in place of a standard split “T.” By making simple modifications to a standard Figure 900 for two-inch pipe, such as heavier clamps and shortened base length, PT&P was able to meet the customer’s special requirements quickly and efficiently.

Cylinder Pipe Guides for a Power Plant

Cylinder Pipe Guides on Shipping Floor

Piping Technology and Products, Inc. designed and fabricated cylinder pipe guides (aka spider guides) for pipes ranging from 1” to 20” in diameter with 1” to 4” of insulation.

Cylinder Pipe Guides for a Power Plant

Cylinder Pipe Guides

These 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 multiple spider guides to avoid a fulcrum or an imposed lateral deflection on critical components.

Components of these guides include carbon steel plates, stock clamps, angles and hot-dipped galvanized pipes. The outer shields have diameters ranging from 6″ to 29-1/2″. The maximum design temperature for the spider guides is 750°F.

In addition to spider guides, over 40,000 lbs. of material were supplied for this project including variable springs, constants, and miscellaneous structural items.

PT&P Aids in the Immediate Replacement of over 160 Pipe Shoes

PT&P Aids in the Immediate Replacement of over 160 Pipe Shoes

PT&P Aids in the Immediate Replacement of over 160 Pipe Shoes

PT&P was called on by an energy center in Oklahoma to inspect failing pipe shoes designed for temperatures ranging from 650 to 1065 °F supplied by another company.  After thorough inspection, PT&P’s field service representatives concluded that the problem was due to the existing pipe clamps’ inability to firmly grip the pipe during expansion. This exposed the pipes to atmospheric moisture, resulting in both heat loss and deterioration. To alleviate the situation, PT&P designed secured pipe clamps that were bolted and torqued such that the entire pipe shoe would move with the pipe’s expansion. PT&P’s field service team also provided on-site installation of the replacement pipe shoes. The entire process involved stripping of the existing damaged insulation, removal of the failing supports, and installation of new pipe shoes and insulation.

Pipe Shoes in the Field

Over 160 pipe shoes were engineered, manufactured, and installed for this energy center. The fabricated pipe shoes, designed for pipe sizes ranging from 12 to 28″ in diameter, are equipped with special base plate and slide bearing plate combinations which allowed axial movement from 1/2″ to 7″ and lateral movement up to 10 1/2″. In addition, they were designed to support a maximum vertical and lateral load of 38,000 lb. and 7,600 lb. respectively.

Standard Pipe Shoes for a Power Plant

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and manufactured these Fig. 1400 pipe shoes for a power plant in Canada.

These Fig. 1400 pipe shoes are a combination of PT&P Fig. 900 and 400.  These shoes are particularly made from carbon steel and graphite with 4” B.O.P (bottom of the pipe).  They are used to control pipe movement by guiding.  These shoes also prevent vertical and horizontal movement and allow axial movement.  They are mainly used in power plants or areas where there is cyclical filling and emptying of the pipe.
