Piping Technology and Products, Inc. and SWECO Fab, Inc. designed and fabricated 24″ 300 # (ANSI rating), 2 1/2″ thick and 42″ 600 # (ANSI rating), 3 7/8″ thick carbon steel spectacle blinds. Spectacle blinds serve the same purpose as flow control valves at less the cost. Spectacle blinds either stop or continue the flow depending on which end is being utilized. PT&P/SWECO Fab. can supply these spectacle blinds in any material needed, such as stainless steel, Monel, Inconel and carbon steel. Smooth, mill, machined or serrated finish is also available upon request. PT&P/SWECO Fab. can produce this product in small quantities/sizes in 48 hours if needed.

40 " Pipe - 8 1/2" Insulation Thickness

Cryogenic Supports for an LNG Plant

Close-up of Belleville Spring Washer

Belleville spring washers are installed on the studs to keep tension on the bolts due to pipe contraction at cryogenic temperatures. The top half of the cold shoe is constructed of 10 lb density polyurethane foam and the bottom half of the shoe is constructed of 20 lb density polyurethane foam to support the weight of the pipe.

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.

Structural Supports with Megalug Pipe Attachments

These are carbon steel structural supports designed for 6″, 10″ and 12″ ductile iron pipe. They are hot dip galvanized to protect against corrosion and will be used in conjunction with hydraulic snubbers. The hydraulic snubbers are used to protect against axial shock loading, as well as providing vertical weight support.

Each support utilizes a Megalug pipe attachment to eliminate the need for field welding. The Megalug® attachments are designed to “bite” into the sides of the pipe providing an attachment point for the flanges on the fabricated clamp.

Structural Supports

Structural Supports

The 6″ supports are designed for a maximum vertical load of 3,770 pounds, while the 10″ and 12″ supports are designed for a maximum vertical load of 11,630 pounds. All of the supports are built for an overall height of 55-1/8″ from the upper support steel to pipe centerline.

Cold Shoes to be Shipped to Puerto Rico

Cold Shoes to be Shipped to Puerto Rico

Cold Shoes to be Shipped to Puerto Rico

Normal pipeline insulation is not designed to support the pipe or its contents. When insulated pipes are supported, the weight of the pipe, the contents, the operating temperature, and the amount of energy loss must be considered.  In order to support the pipe and minimize energy loss from heat transfer, a pre-insulated pipe support is necessary.   If the material in the pipe is high temperature such as high pressure steam or heating oil, then high temperature insulation is required, and these supports are called hot shoes.  If the material is cold, such as liquefied natural gas, cooling water or ammonia, then low temperature insulation is needed, and these types of supports are called cold shoes.

PT&P received the order to fabricate 140 cold shoes from a contractor in Puerto Rico. The overall weight of the order was 11,000 lbs and was produced in 8 weeks. The shoes were designed to support 8, 10 and 12 inch pipe sizes with 2 inches of insulation. They were designed using our Pipe Shields Division and correspond to the following model numbers: B2000, B4000,and C4100. These can be seen on our Pipe Shields website or you can request a catalog.
