Hydraulic Snubbers Designed for an LNG Facility in Texas

Fronek Anchor/Darling Enterprises, a division of PT&P, designed snubbers for a LNG facility in Texas. These Fig. 511 AD hydraulic snubbers range in size from 76″ – 85″ piston-to-piston and are fabricated from carbon steel. They are designed for a maximum load of 32,000 lb., 6″ stroke and have a 4″ diameter cylinder. Hydraulic snubbers are designed to protect the piping system when a sudden, heavy load is applied (such as an earthquake of high intensity), which can cause serious vibrations leading to damage and possible failure of the piping system. A cycle test throughout the full stroke from zero to fully extended was performed prior to shipment

Sway Strut and Pipe Clamp Assemblies Designed for a Natural Gas Facility in Canada

PT&P designed sway strut and pipe clamp assemblies for a pipeline at a natural gas facility located in Canada. The sway struts are 87-1/2″ in length and the clamps are designed for pipes ranging from 6″ to 42″ in diameter. The assemblies are designed for operating loads ranging between 3,300 lb. to 20,000 lb., with an operating temperature of 392°F and 9mm -20mm of allocated vertical movement. A load test was performed on the assemblies prior to shipment.

Custom Sway Brace and Variable Spring Assemblies Designed for an Aerospace Development Facility

These custom designed sway braces and variable spring assemblies were designed for hanger duct work in an aerospace development facility. The assemblies measure 67-1/2″ long with a 14-1/8″ O.D. The variables are a modified F-type spring with a pivoting base and non-standard coil combination, including a nested spring design. The assemblies include fully adjustable travel stops and custom end brackets. They are fabricated from carbon steel and designed for load ranges between 1100 lb. and 9250 lb. with a spring rate of +/- 2.78″.

26'-9" Custom Designed Sway Struts with Ball Joints

These 26′-9″ long custom designed sway struts with ball joints were supplied for a power generating facility. There were 4 total assemblies that included 4″ diameter schedule 80 pipe with one ball joint and one extension piece on each end measuring 3″ in diameter and 6″ long. The sway struts, designed to support a load of 29,000 lb., will be used in the facility to allow movement between two structures along a parallel plane.

Hydraulic Snubbers Designed for a Geothermal Facility

Fronek Anchor/Darling Enterprises, a division of PT&P designed and fabricated hydraulic snubbers for a geothermal facility in California. The Fig. 510 AD snubbers ranged in size from 34-3/4″ to 37-5/8″ piston-to-piston and were designed for a 50,000 lb. maximum load, 5″ cylinder size and a 6″ stroke. The Fig. 511 AD snubbers ranged in size from 56-15/16″ to 59-5/16″ P-P and were designed for a 20,000 lb. maximum load, 2-1/2″ cylinder size and a 6″ stroke. Hydraulic snubbers are designed to protect the piping system when a sudden, heavy load is applied (such as an earthquake of high intensity), which can cause serious vibrations leading to complete destruction. A custom three-bolt pipe clamp fabricated from carbon steel was designed to fit in a limited space. A cycle test throughout the full stroke from zero to fully extended was performed prior to shipment.

7 Ways to Extend the Lifespan of a Hydraulic Snubber

March 9th, 2012 Comments off

Follow these 7 steps below to maintain and extend the life span of your hydraulic snubber.

Hydraulic Snubber Assembly

1. Observe the fluid level to make sure there is sufficient fluid for the snubber to operate
2. Check for leaks – If the fluid level is decreasing, determine the cause and effect remedial action.
3. Check the condition of the load pins and spherical ball bushings. Apply a high pressure grease for long-term benefits.
4. Check the condition of the exposed portion of the piston rod. Check for scoring, paint or other physical damage.
5. Check the condition of the piston rod wiper. Verify that it’s in position and working effectively.
6. Check for evidence of abuse like welding arc strikes, bent or dented parts, scratched paint, etc.
7. Finally, check the overall physical appearance. This encompasses all of the above.

Mechanical Snubber Assemblies Custom Designed for an Oil Refinery

Mechanical Snubber Assemblies Custom Designed for an Oil Refinery

Mechanical Snubber Assemblies
This week’s feature is on mechanical snubber assemblies custom designed for an oil refinery in California. This project included twenty mechanical snubber assemblies with load ratings from 16,000 lb. to 40,000 lb. and lengths ranging from 65-1/2″ to 103-1/2″. Some of the snubbers were designed to double the standard stroke (up to 12″) by using two MSA-10 sized snubbers back-to-back. All the assemblies were custom designed by adding a carbon steel pipe extension piece. Load tests were performed and the assemblies were shipped in just under four weeks.

Hydraulic Snubber vs. Mechanical Snubber

March 11th, 2011 No comments

Have you ever wondered which type of  snubber to select for your piping system? Should you pick a hydraulic snubber or should you pick a mechanical snubber? Which one is right for your application? This seems to be a common concern for quite a few of our customers, so we have just recently published an article that discusses the pros and cons for both hydraulic and mechanical snubbers.  Check out the article, Suitability of Snubbers for Various Applications.
