F-Type Variable Spring Supports for a Chemical Plant and Refinery in Singapore

December 20th, 2010 No comments
F-Type Variable Spring Supports

F-Type Variable Spring Supports

An assortment of standard variable spring supports were manufactured ranging in size from 8-5/8″ to 12-3/4″ dia. with installed heights ranging from 9-7/16″ to 18-1/8″. The F-Type pipe hanger assembly is used to support the pipe from below and are typically mounted to concrete pads via anchor bolts or welded to structural steel. The various springs shown are designed for operating conditions ranging from loads of 1750 lb. with .02″ travel to 21,280 lb. loads with .13″ travel. As with all of our variable supports, these were quality checked with a 100% spring coil deflection test and a load cell calibration to set the assembly at the prescribed installed load.

Take a Look into the Past: Insulated Pipe Supports

December 17th, 2010 No comments

Check out our most recent article that looks at the history of insulated pipe supports through the past 100 years.  Learn about the developments made in the 1950′s and 1960′s that introduced the use of “Foam Glass”, a lightweight material that is manufactured primarily from recycled glass and used in the design of insulated pipe supports. Later, polyurethane was developed to provide greater load carrying capabilities. Read the full article on the:

Hydraulic Snubber Assemblies for a LNG Processing Facility in Peru

November 1st, 2010 No comments

Hydraulic Snubber Assemblies for a LNG Processing Facility in Peru

These hydraulic snubber assemblies were designed with maximum load capacities ranging from 1700 lb. to 59,400 lb. All of the snubbers were provided with an overall stroke of 6” and were preset to the midpoint of the total stroke, meaning that during operation, these snubbers could accommodate piping deflections of  +/- 3” from the installed position.

Hydraulic Snubber Assemblies for a LNG Processing Facility in Peru

The piston diameters range from 1-1/2″ to 6″ and the total assembly length ranges from 31-1/2″ to 220″. The largest assembly required a custom extension section to eliminate the risk of buckling under compression loads. Two-thirds of the assemblies included dual end brackets and the remaining assemblies included an end bracket/clamp combination. The housing, extension piece and end brackets are fabricated from carbon steel, while the cylinders, pins and two of the end brackets are fabricated from polished stainless steel. Standard “lock and bleed-down” tests were performed prior to shipping to a LNG processing facility in Peru.
