Snubber Extension Rod Ends

The hydraulic snubber extension rod ends(seen above) were manufactured from carbon steel. Ranging in sizes 1 , 4, 5, and 6, the weight of each increase with size, therefore; the weight of each unit varies. Extension rod ends are used in conjunction with hydraulic snubbers to extend the overall length of an existing snubber. They are applied to piping systems when unrestrained thermal movement must be allowed but must also be restrained during impulsive or cyclic disturbance. The turn around time for these units was 3 weeks.

3 Wedge Action Mechanical Joints for a Suspension Bridge

Three wedge action mechanical joint restraints made of ductile iron materials were utilized to assist in the construction of a suspension bridge. Also, these mechanical joints provide for vertical and axial restraint for the bridge. Each weighs approximately 300 lb. and measures 24” long by 16” wide, and 12” tall for a 6”, 10”, and 12” ductile iron pipe. They are capable of supporting 50,000 lb. In addition, they are designed for seismic conditions with the ability for 7” of axial travel.

Single Cold Shoe

These cold shoes are made of polyurethane for cryogenic pipe lines at a liquid nitrogen gas plant. They measure between 8” to 16” in diameter, 30” long with 4” of insulation. These cold shoes provide insulation in the support area where the regular pipe insulation (foam glass) is not sufficient to support the load.

Alternate View of Sway Struts

Sway struts are used to restrain movement of piping in one direction while providing for movement due to thermal expansion or contraction in another direction. These sway struts are made of ASTM A387 GR22 weighing at 1,485 lbs each. They are 6″ in diameter and 8’2″ long and are used for main steam valve supports with specifically designed spacers, pins, and retainers capable of restraining movement up to 90,000 lbs at high temperatures exceeding 750F. The turnaround time for this was 6 weeks.

Load Testing Rollers

Roller stands are used to support pipelines that expand and contract longitudinally in the axial direction and where vertical adjustment is not necessary. These roller stands are made of stainless steel and designed for a 26″ pipe. They weigh 160 lbs and are capable of supporting 7,500 lbs. Load testing at 1,000F was completed for performance assurance.

Constant Hanger Supports for a Power Recovery Plant

Constant Hanger Supports for a Power Recovery Plant

Constant Hanger Supports for a Power Recovery Plant

Constant support hangers are used to support pipes subjected to vertical movement. The (Fig. PTP 200) constants are designed to support loads from 4,000 lbs to 57,000 lbs. Each weighs approximately 1,500 lbs to 2500 lbs and has a travel of up to 4″ with an adjustable travel stop. Their sizes range from 15 to 100.

The advantage of an adjustable travel stop is that the constant is able to “lock in” at any position within the range of travel for a given constant. This alleviates the need for a total “shut down” of the piping system for temporary conditions such as hydrotesting, repair, or replacement.

Side View of the Cold Shoe

These cold shoes are made of polyurethane with an 8″ thick insulation to fit a 30″ pipe. The shoes are capable of insulating and supporting at temperatures as low as -360F. This allows for the LNG to be transported through the pipe at extremely low temperatures. These cold shoes were rushed to our client during a “turnaround” to replace the original supports that had failed.
