Specially Designed Upthrust Constants

Specially Designed Upthrust Constants

Specially Designed Upthrust Constants

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. announces the latest design of their “Horizontal Upthrust” base type constant support. The table or load flange move straight up or down as the weight of the pipe is transferred to the helical coil (spring) via the internal camlinkage. PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide bearings on the four corners eliminate the possibility of binding if undue axial or lateral forces are exerted. Also, PTFE, 25% glass filled, or graphite slide bearings can be added to the table to ease movement along the axis of the pipe. The Big-Ton and Type F Base Constant Supports are still available for other applications.]

Constant Effort Supports for Generating Facilities

Constant Effort Supports in the Field

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. has designed and built thirty-two constant effort supports ranging in loads from eighty to eighty-seven kips with seven and one half inches of total travel on each.Six of the thirty-two are shown in position and they will support critical portions of the heater. The balance in other parts of the plant will support equally critical lines such as main steam and boiler reheat.

Located near Calvert, Texas, this is the second generating facility for Texas – New Mexico Power at this site. Piping Technology & Products, Inc. supplied the same material on the previous installation for this client.

Removable Pipe Supports

The photograph above shows one of 72 of these supports fabricated by Piping Technology & Products, Inc. for shipment to Alaska. Note that the distance between the top pipe where other components are attached and the base the support rests on can be changed by selecting the holes for the arms. These removable supports are used during installation of pipelines. Pipe sections may have other permanent supports if the pipe is above ground or the lines may be underground.

Value-Added Marking and Packaging

The photograph above shows a number of fabricated components of a piping system being marked for individual packaging before shipment to the construction site at a chemical plant. The markings correspond to the assembly drawings which are used during construction to assure the many little components are efficiently installed to meet a demanding schedule. Piping Technology & Products, Inc. prepared the detail drawings and fabricated all components for a series of four projects for chemical plants in USA.

Polyurethane Products for Piping System

The two pictures above show two types of polyurethane products produced by Piping Technology & Products, Inc. for piping systems. At the top are cold shoes to support piping at cryogenic temperatures. The polyurethane cradle is bonded to steel shield which is welded to a T-bar. These cradles are produced by pumping the chemical components required into a mold which gives them the correct shape. At the bottom are supports produced by drilling and machining solid polyurethane blocks. Polyurethane provides both insulation and the strength to support pipes at cold temperatures.

Mechanical Snubbers

Mechanical Snubbers

The two pictures above show mechanical snubbers which are used to limit the velocity of movement of piping systems when sudden accelerations caused by earthquakes, extreme wind loads or water hammer occur. These devices are designed with a brake drum which is activated by sudden movement. During gradual movement, such as would be expected during thermal expansion, the brake is not activated. Mechanical snubbers do not depend on hydraulic principles so they do not require maintenance during normal operation. The top picture shows the pins and swivel bearings used to link these snubbers to the system it will protect. The bottom pictures shows our inventory maintained for emergency deliver.

Hydraulic Snubbers

Hydraulic Snubbers

The two pictures above show hydraulic snubbers which are used to limit the velocity of movement of piping systems when sudden accelerations caused by earthquakes, extreme wind loads or water hammer occur. These devices are designed so slow movement, such as would be expected during thermal expansion, has practically no resistance, but sudden rapid movement is resisted with a force proportional to the velocity raised to a power where the power is determined by the orifice valve and flow pattern in the design. Selection of materials and liquids used will depend on the environment where the snubber is installed. The snubber at the bottom has a ball joint attached for linkage with the system it will protect.

Constants for a Radiant-tube Support System

The photograph above shows a large number of specially designed constant spring supports being prepared for shipment to Chile. These constants are the key component of a reforming furnace, radiant tube support system designed for one of the world’s major engineering and construction firms.

Piping Technology’s engineers designed these units to fit in the limited space available inside the furnace and provided optional bolting patterns so attachment to the supporting structure could be made even if the radiant tube support system assumed a competitor’s design.

Bellmouth Reducers

The picture above shows four bellmouth reducers which have just received the final coat of a special paint. These are components of the cooling water piping system designed for large, new petrochemical complex. The bell shape is a segment of an ellipse chosen to function as a vortex breaker during high velocity flow.
