Hydraulic Snubbers Designed for LLDPE Chemical Plant

June 17th, 2016 Comments off

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.

Cryogenic Pipe Supports Designed for an Air Separation Unit

A total of sixty-four pre-insulated pipe supports were designed for cryogenic temperatures in an air separation unit in China. The units are 12″ in length with 4.5″ thick polyurethane foam insulation. The cold shoes were designed with carbon steel shoe clamps and finished with a black epoxy and include polyethylene slide plates.Standard quality control and dimensional tests were performed prior to shipment.

Variable Spring Support with Bronzphite® Slide Plates Designed for a Facility in Canada

PT&P manufactured these F-type variable spring supports for a facility in Canada. The springs are fabricated from A36 carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. The variables installed heights range from 11″ to 15″ and are designed for operating conditions up to 4,000 lb. Bronzphite® is best suited for high loads, low velocity applications and where the use of oil or grease is undesirable or unfeasible. The bronze plate acts as the bearing surface, withstanding heavy loads, while the graphite inserts provide a solid, oil-free lubricant. As with all of our variable supports, these were quality checked with a 100% spring coil deflection test and a load cell calibration to set the assembly at the prescribed installed load.

U-Type Constant Spring Supports Designed for an LNG Plant in Canada

PT&P designed U-Type constant spring supports for an LNG plant in Canada. These are horizontal constants designed to support piping from below where the base plate is bolted directly to the top of the steel or the foundation using anchor bolts. These specific constant springs are designed to support an operating load of 67,420 lb. with 6” of total upwards travel. The constants are fabricated from galvanized carbon steel for protection against corrosion. Standard load and travel testing were completed to ensure the quality and performance of these constants.
