This webinar is over, view the recording in the archives

Insulated Pipe SupportThis webinar will give you an introduction to Pipe Shields, Inc. and its unique line of pre-insulated pipe supports, slides, guides and anchors that it developed and patented over it’s 40 year history. It will cover various designs, commercial applications (chilled and heated water lines, HVAC systems and low pressure steam lines), installation and maintenance procedures and the benefits of using pre-insulated pipe supports (vs. doing insulation in the field). This webinar will be delivered by Albert Dizon, General Manager of Pipe Shields, who has been working with pre-insulated pipe supports for 30+ years. Join us and receive some of his experience and wisdom!

14” Diameter Pipe Clamp Assemblies Designed and Manufactured by PT&P for a Refining Project in Saudi Arabia

Piping Technologies & Products fabricated these special designed Split-T pipe shoes using a Figure 50 “two-bolt pipe clamp” for a refining project in Saudi Arabia.  The pipe shoes are 4″ height x 15.5″ wide x 18″ long and were fabricated from A36 carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish.  They are designed for a pipe size of 14″ with an operating temperature from -29°C to 316°C. The pipe shoes are capable of supporting an operating load of 34,000 lb.

Big Ton Spring Supports Designed for Propane De-Hydrogenation Facility

PT&P custom designed big ton spring supports for a propane dehydrogenation facility in Texas. The components within these assemblies include the spring housing, load columns, travel stops, spring coils and lifting lugs. While both assemblies measure 42” x 24” x 26-1/2”, they were each modified based on independent specifications for operating loads and movement. The first will accommodate a load of 94,261 lb. and 0.085” of movement, while the second will accommodate a load of 102,219 lb. with 0.08” of movement.

This type of support is ideal for applications, such as pressure vessels, that combine very heavy loads with thermal expansion because of the stability they provide. The big tons were tested in the load cell to insure proper operation throughout the entire working range of the coils.

Hydraulic Snubbers Designed for LLDPE Chemical Plant

These Fig. 511 AD long hydraulic snubbers were created for a linear low-density (LLDPE) chemical plant in Louisiana. The snubbers with two (2) rear brackets range in length from 34-⅝” to 49”. They are designed with spherical, self-aligning ball bushings that allow for + 5° of angular motion or misalignment.  The snubbers can handle maximum loads varying up to 5520 lb. Cylinder sizes are 1-½” and 2-½” and have a 6” stroke. The hydraulic fluid is petroleum based and the seals are a mix of buna-nitrile and polyurethane and the pressurized hydraulic reservoir allows mounting in any spatial orientation. The snubbers are painted with a primer that utilizes zinc filled powder manufactured by Tnemec. Ⓡ  The formulation for the primer is Series H90-97 | Tneme-Zinc.
