Dual Purpose Pipe Shoes for High Temperature Applications

Pipe Shoes for Hot Temperature Applications

The pictures above show insulated pipe supports designed for two very different temperature applications. The top picture shows an inspector checking “hot” shoes for high temperature piping. They have one 180 degree section of the insulation made of foam glass and the other 180 degree made from calcium silicate. Some components are chosen for their insulating properties only, other must both insulate and support the load of the pipe. The bottom picture shows a 54 inch “cold” shoe of galvanized steel with PTFE slide plates on the bottom. Inside the galvanized steel is bonded a layer of polyurethane foam which has been coated with a white vapor barrier. This polyurethane layer provides both insulation and support of the load at cryogenic temperatures.

Four “Ball Type” Flexible Strut Joints

Four “Ball Type” Flexible Strut Joints

Pictured above are four “ball type” flexible strut joints often used to help control vibration. These struts are attached to piping or other equipment to restrain movement in one direction while allowing movement in another direction. Movement may be due to temperature or pressure changes. Piping Technology & Products can furnish strut joints made from various materials and with various finishes depending on the load requirements and the environment where they will be installed.

Sway Struts for a 250 MW Power Plant

The picture seen above is a mechanical snubber attached to a rod with a pipe clamp. Below the snubber is a rigid sway strut for 36” pipe and four smaller sway struts. The snubber will dampen sudden shocks and vibrations in the piping system. These show the variety of built by Piping Technology & Products, Inc. for a 250 megawatt power plant.

Color-Coded Insulating Components

Color-Coded Insulating Components

Color-Coded Insulating Components

The pictures above show pipe supports designed for a system with very cold operating temperatures. The insulating components are polyurethane, which are inside the galvanized steel exterior of the support. At the top left of the picture are the color-coded polyurethane components of a “cold shoe” for a 60” pipe, the top (green) is 14 lb/ft3 density and the bottom (orange) is 20 lb/ft3 density. The higher density material has greater compressive strength but it is a better conductor of heat. The other pictures show finished shoes which have white coating over the polyurethane. Hot shoes, designed for high operating temperatures, are similar but usually have different insulating materials.

Bonding Strength Testing for Low Temperature Application Adhesive

January 6th, 1993 No comments
Bonding Strength Testing for Low Temperature Application Adhesive

Bonding Strength Testing for Low Temperature Application Adhesive

In the picture above, a test of the bonding strength of an adhesive designed for low temperature applications is being conducted. Polyurethane strips have been bonded to metal strips which are pulled apart in a load cell which measures the force applied.

Polyurethane is often specified for components of insulated pipe shoes and supports for cold temperature applications. Polyurethane provides both insulation and load carrying capacity for pipes when it is bonded to a metal pipe shoe or support. Piping Technology & Products, Inc. fabricates all types of insulated pipe supports. The type of insulation specified depends on the temperature profile the pipe will experience and the loads and movement at the point of application.

86” Diameter Clamps

86” Diameter Clamps

Specially formed and gusseted 86” diameter clamps are being strapped to their pallets for their journey to Western Canada.

PT&P designed and built these specialty clamps of 3” x 16” bar stock for a major producer of oil and gas in Alberta for an application in their process sector.
