PTFE Slide Plates Designed for a Refinery in Louisiana

December 1st, 2012 Comments off

PTFE Slide Plates

These slide plate assemblies are comprised of 3/32″ thick PTFE, 25% glass filled slide plates bonded to 1/4″ thick hot dipped galvanized carbon steel backing plates. They measure 139″ long by 11-1/2″ wide, and were designed for a pressure of 2000 psi at -320°F to 500°F. PTFE, 25% glass filled material provides a low coefficient of friction, is easy to install, does not require surface treatments, or grouting, and is unaffected by weather conditions. These type of slide plates are typically installed on top of a concrete pillar under a large vessel.

Cryogenic and Axial Stop Cold Shoes for an LNG Facility

November 18th, 2012 Comments off


Piping Technology and Products supplied these cryogenic and axial stop cold shoes for an LNG facility in Australia. A total of 28 assemblies were fabricated with carbon steel, stainless steel and Micarta® G-10 insulation blocks. They were a wide range of lengths from 24″ to 36″, widths from 6 3/4″ to 30″ and heights from 9″ to 10 1/4″. The pipe shoes will support pipes ranging in diameter from 6″ to 48″ NPS in cryogenic temperatures as low as -162°C. A special paint system was used for the carbon steel components to resist rust. PMI testing was performed on the stainless parts prior to shipping.

Over 40 Constant Spring Supports Designed to Support Production Pipes

November 12th, 2012 Comments off

Fig. 200 U-Type Constant Spring Support

Over 40 constant spring supports were custom designed to support production pipes in an oil refinery. This picture shows a Fig. 200 U-Type constant spring support.

Fig. 100 B-Type Constant Spring Support

This picture shows a Fig. 100 B-Type constant spring support.

The constants range in size from 22″ to 30″ in height, 35″ to 85″ in length, and 12″ to 31″ in width. Their load capacities range from 1,800 lb. to 20,800 lb. with a vertical movement ranging from 7″ to 11-1/2″. All constants were fabricated from A-36 carbon steel and painted with a 3-coat paint system. Each constant went through standard load and travel testing per MSS Standards prior to shipment.

Variable Spring Hanger and Structural Steel Assembly for a Solar Electric Generating System

October 28th, 2012 Comments off

Variable Spring HangersVariable Spring Hanger and Structural Steel Assembly

These variable spring hangers were designed for a 10″ pipe line in a solar electric generating system. All assemblies were fabricated from A-36 carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanize finish. The picture on the left shows a structural steel assembly supporting a PTP-1 variable spring and a Fig.80 heavy 3-bolt clamp designed for a 3,789 lb. load. The picture on the right shows two PTP-2 variable spring hangers welded to a structural steel beam designed for a 675 lb. load. Each pipe hanger assembly went through standard load and travel testing prior to shipping.

200 E-Type Horizontal Constant Spring Supports for a Fired Heater Radiant Manifold

October 15th, 2012 Comments off

200 E-Type Horizontal Constant Spring Supports for a Fired Heater Radiant Manifold

These 200 E-Type horizontal constant spring supports are fabricated from A-36 carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanize finish. The pins made for constants operation are A-322-4140 high strength carbon steel. The constants range in size from 22-3/4″ to 26-1/4″ heights, 60″ to 90″ lengths, 18″ width, and 19-1/2″ to 23-1/2″ in coil housing diameters. They are designed for 23,160 lb. to 33,700 lb. loads and 6-1/2″ to 14″ of total travel. A total of sixteen assemblies were custom designed for a fired heater radiant manifold. Each pipe hanger assembly went through standard load and travel testing prior to shipping.

Variable Spring Supports with Permanent Upward Travel Stops

October 2nd, 2012 Comments off

Five total assemblies of custom designed variable spring supports were made for an oil refinery in the United Arab Emirates. These springs required a permanent upward travel stop. The spring cans were supplied with PTFE and polished stainless steel slide plates attached to carbon steel load flange. All materials used were domestic (from the U.S.). The springs were tested for lateral loads. The spring coils were stress tested and can withstand temperatures of 176°F (80°C), with a downward movement of 30mm – 45mm.

Big Tons with W-Beams as Stilts

September 17th, 2012 Comments off

Stilts using W-Beams were added to these big ton variable assemblies in order to meet height requirements for an oil refinery in Port Arthur, TX. Entirely fabricated with carbon steel, these big tons measure 50 1/2″ – 70″ L x 18″ – 22″ W by 37″ H and are capable of supporting loads up to 113,734 lb with an upward travel range of .076″ – .816″. Permanent travel stops were later installed in order to prevent any chances of downward shift.

36 Custom Designed Pipe Saddles for a Power Plant

September 4th, 2012 Comments off

Thirty-six custom designed pipe saddles were created for a power plant in Mississippi. These 20″ W x 72″ L x 30″ H saddles were made with carbon steel with PTFE slide plates. These pipe saddles were designed to support a load of 55,000 lb. and will be applied to fluid bed duct supports.
