72″ Dia. Cryogenic Pipe Supports Designed for an LNG Facility

May 6th, 2013 Comments off

72" Dia. Cryogenic Pipe Supports Designed for an LNG Facility

Custom designed cryogenic pipe supports were fabricated for an LNG facility in Africa. The shoes range in diameter from 30″ to 72″, 45″ to 88″ in height, 42-1/2″ to 85-1/2″ in width, and 28″ to 33″ in length. The insulation is a high density polyurethane foam (PUF) ranging from 5″ to 6″ thick. The shoe and bearing plates were fabricated from carbon steel with a HDG finish. The jacket was fabricated from aluminized steel and includes a vapor barrier.

 

Cryogenic and Axial Stop Cold Shoes for an LNG Facility

November 18th, 2012 Comments off


Piping Technology and Products supplied these cryogenic and axial stop cold shoes for an LNG facility in Australia. A total of 28 assemblies were fabricated with carbon steel, stainless steel and Micarta® G-10 insulation blocks. They were a wide range of lengths from 24″ to 36″, widths from 6 3/4″ to 30″ and heights from 9″ to 10 1/4″. The pipe shoes will support pipes ranging in diameter from 6″ to 48″ NPS in cryogenic temperatures as low as -162°C. A special paint system was used for the carbon steel components to resist rust. PMI testing was performed on the stainless parts prior to shipping.

Cold Insulated Pipe Anchors with Axial Stops

Cold insulated pipe anchors with axial stops

Cryogenic pipe supports, ranging in diameter from 6″ to 38″, were designed to support and insulate piping in an LNG receiving and regassification plant. The “cold shoe anchors” were designed for temperatures down to -260°F and a load range of 26,000 lb. to 210,000 lb. A combination of high density polyurethane foam (PUF) and Permali® was used for the insulation. The center stops that are welded to the process pipe were built from 304 stainless steel, and carbon steel was used for the remainder of the shoe.

Take a Look into the Past: Insulated Pipe Supports

December 17th, 2010 No comments

Check out our most recent article that looks at the history of insulated pipe supports through the past 100 years.  Learn about the developments made in the 1950’s and 1960’s that introduced the use of “Foam Glass”, a lightweight material that is manufactured primarily from recycled glass and used in the design of insulated pipe supports. Later, polyurethane was developed to provide greater load carrying capabilities. Read the full article on the:

Sliding Cryogenic Insulated Supports for a 60" Diameter Vapor Line

Sliding Cryogenic Insulated Supports

These sliding cryoshoes are fabricated from carbon steel with 2″ thick polyurethane insulation. The polyurethane is 20 lb. density, which has a compressive strength of 500 psi and a tensile strength of 600 psi. The cold shoes are designed for temperatures as low as -300°F and for loads up to 3,500 lb. They will be used to support a 60″ diameter low temperature vapor line in a Texas facility.
