30,000 lb. Load Type F Variable Spring Hangers

30,000 lb. Load Type F Variable Spring Hangers

Pictured above are special Type F variable springs being prepared for shipment overseas. Finite element analysis was used to specify stronger load columns to allow for a possible 30% lateral load. Loads as high as 30,000 pounds were required for some items. These variables also required a special three coat paint (white).

“Finger Joint” for Howard Franklin Bridge

The picture above shows a 20 foot section of a “Finger Joint” expansion assembly produced by PT&P for the Howard Franklin Bridge from Tampa to St. Petersburg in Florida.

This section is assembled and ready for shipment. Note the galvanized finish on everything except the temporary shipping bars. Each assembly includes four sections having a total weight of 11,227 lb. The fingers on this bridge are tapered to minimize tire damage to vehicles.

Cryogenic Pipe Supports for a LNG Plant in Algeria

Cryogenic Pipe Supports for a LNG Plant in Algeria

Cryogenic Pipe Supports for a LNG Plant in Algeria

The pictures above show cryogenic pipe supports designed by a Houston E&C firm for a LNG plant in Algeria. Piping Technology & Products, Inc. fabricated the these supports for a 14” pipe which operates below –50oF. Three different materials are used. The upper part which bolts to the pipe is fabricated from an alloy which retains its strength at low temperatures. The middle section is a Permali® block selected because of its strength and durability and because it is a poor conductor of heat. The bottom plate of galvanized carbon steel is bolted to the Permali® block. Permali® is a phenolic laminate made from layers of wood impregnated under vacuum with a synthetic resin. A crossed orientation of the hard wood fibers is used to provide extra strength.

3400 lb. Load Type F Spring Hangers for Overseas Refinery Plant

3400 lb. Load Type F Spring Hangers for Overseas Refinery Plant

The photograph above shows a unique combination of Type F variable springs designed by a client engineer to support large skid-mounted pumps. Piping Technology & Products, Inc. fabricated the connecting assemblies which use variable springs inside pods to support the pump skids from the side. The number of pods varies from size to twelve, depending on the size of the pump, and the loads supported by each type F spring vary from 1800 to 3400 pounds depending on the geometry of the assembly. The distance between rods varies from two to three feet. A total of nine units are being exported to refinery project overseas.

Specially Designed Vertical Constants

Specially Designed Vertical Constants

The vertical constant is used when piping stress is critical and pipe is subject to vertical movement in excess of ½ inch due to thermal expansion, and also at locations here it is necessary to avid any transfer of stress from support or onto critical terminals or connecting equipment. These constants are manufactured by Piping Technology & Products, Inc.

Insulated Pipe Shoes for Hot Applications

Insulated Pipe Shoes for Hot Applications

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. supplied both “hot shoes” for high temperature lines and “cold shoes” for cryogenic lines in this new plant. The shoes sit on the steel beams of the pipe rack and support the insulated pipe. The bottom photograph shows several of the shoes prior to shipment. The two large cold shoes in the foreground are lined with PUF (polyurethane foam) which functions both as an insulator and as a load bearing member at temperatures as low as –300oF. Hot shoes are lined with calcium silicate or Marinite® which can function up to 1200oF.

Custom Designed Vertical Upthrust Constant

Custom Designed Vertical Upthrust Constant

Pictured is a vertical upthrust constant developed for an application where the traditional horizontal upthrust would not fit.

Our Canadian customer searched to find existing products to support a pressure vessel which was to be located in an area with no additional horizontal space. PT&P developed this design and tested a prototype within one month to meet customer’s schedule.
