Specially Designed 120,000 lb Load Big-Ton Spring Supports

Pictured above are Big-Ton Spring Supports specially designed by Piping Technology & Products, Inc. These types of supports are used in supporting large and heavy units such as compressors, vessels and pumps in power and petrochemical plants. The ones below were used to support vessels in excess of 120,000 pounds. The Big-Ton Spring Support are designed to allow limited movement in confined areas. By doing this, it saves the customer from having to entirely redesign the piping system and saves thousands of dollars.

Pig Launcher & Receivers for MTBE Plant

The picture above shows two views of launcher-receivers loaded on a truck. These devices are installed in pipelines to launch and receive pipeline pigs. Pigs can be used for cleaning or for separation of two products in the same pipeline. Modern pigs with sensing devices are used in old pipelines to look for damage or corrosion problems. These launcher-receivers part of several being built by the SWECO Fab, Inc. division of Piping Technology & Products, Inc. for a large MTBE plant in Saudi Arabia.

Gas Torches

The photograph above shows a computer-controlled bank of gas torches used to burn patterns of small components from large metal plates. The geometry of the components is used to program the computer. The metal plate is on a “water table” which catches the melted material to be utilized in the national program to conserve natural resources.

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. supplies hardware, pipe supports, expansion joints and other fabricated items for petrochemical, paper and electric power plants throughout the U.S. and overseas.

Wet Air Fan Cyclone for High Density Polyethylene Project

Wet Air Fan Cyclone for High Density Polyethylene Project

Sweco Fab, Inc., a wholly subsidiary of Piping Technology & Products, Inc., and an ASME and API code vessel shop recently unveiled their design of a wet air fan cyclone for a new high density polyethylene project.

The barrel, which is a twenty-one feet long, tapers upward from a twelve-inch diameter base to a six foot diameter top. Ears on the exterior of the barrel are provided for support and alignment. Air inlet is designed to mate with other components forming part of the process equipment. The fan cowling has outboard ears to facilitate ease of test, assembly and maintenance. The cyclone was rolled and formed from ¼ inch carbon steel and weighs 4,000 lb.

Orifice Plates

Orifice Plates

The picture above shows special components of today’s piping systems. At the top are two rings with machined surfaces required to help seal the system when operating at high pressures. Rings and spacers can be fabricated from a variety of metals including carbon steels, stainless steels, alloys such as Inconel®, Hastelloy or Titanium. The choice of materials depends on the temperatures and pressures the system is designed for. Holes can be drilled to produce bleed rings which relieve pressure slowly. The above picture shows orifice plates which are made from the same materials.

Insulated Pipe Supports

Insulated Pipe Supports

The photographs above show insulated pipe supports designed for a system being installed in a very cold climate in Russia. The insulating components are inside next to the pipe. The outside components are galvanized steel. In the foreground of the photo at the right are two fixtures which were built for load testing these pipe supports by applying known forces with a hydraulic load cell. Piping Technology & Products, Inc., fabricated prototype units for a Houston Engineering Firm and tested the units. After successful tests a number of similar units were built for shipment to Russia.
