Cryogenic Pipe Supports Designed for a Facility in Massachusetts

Cryogenic Pipe Supports Designed for a Facility in Massachusetts

Type: Cryogenic Pipe Supports
Material: Carbon Steel | Polyurethane
Design: -320°F | 36″ – 48″ Dia. | 52″ W x 57″ H x 67″ L

PT&P received an order to custom design 16 cryogenic pipe supports for a contractor in Massachusetts. They needed a pipe forming a T-section lined with insulation and trimmed to accommodate the pipe perpendicular to the shoe length. The overall dimensions of the order are pipe sizes ranging from 36″ to 48″ in diameter, 52″ width and 57″ to 67″ height. Our insulation is designed to support the pipe and its contents. When insulated pipes are supported, the weight of the pipe, the contents, the operating temperature, and the amount of energy loss must be considered. In order to support the pipe and minimize energy loss from heat transfer, a pre-insulated pipe support is necessary. If the material in the pipe is high temperature such as high pressure steam or heating oil, then high temperature insulation is required, and these supports are called hot shoes. If the material is cold, such as liquefied natural gas, cooling water or ammonia, then low temperature insulation is needed, and these types of supports are called cold shoes.

127 Cryogenic Insulated Pipe Supports Designed for a Chemical Plant

PT&P custom designed 127 cryogenic insulated pipe supports for a chemical plant in Texas. They are designed for pipe sizes ranging from 1″ – 24″ diameter and operating loads up to 120,517 lb. The insulation is high density polyurethane foam (PUF) ranging from 1″ to 7″ in thickness. The shoe and bearing plates were fabricated from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. The jacket was fabricated from aluminized steel and includes a vapor barrier. Standard Q.C. and dimensional tests were performed prior to shipment.

48” Dia. Cryogenic Pipe Supports Designed for a Light Hydrocarbon Production Facility

PT&P custom designed pre-insulated pipe supports with polyurethane insulation for cryogenic temperatures in a light hydrocarbon production facility in Texas. A total of 59 cold shoes were fabricated from A36 carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. The cold shoe assemblies range in diameter from 24″-48″ and were designed to support loads ranging from 17,000 to 31,000 lb. Standard Q.C. and dimensional tests were performed prior to shipment.

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.

Cryogenic Supports for a LNG Receiving & Regasification Plant and Refinery

These cryogenic supports (also known as cold shoes) are fabricated from 20 PCF polyurethane insulation, weigh 650 lb. each and are designed for 30″ diameter pipe. They are comprised of a carbon steel base plate and bearing plate, a vapor barrier and an aluminum jacket. The supports are designed for temperatures as low as -260°F, and measure 27″ length by 44″ height. A total of thirty-four supports were fabricated for natural gas applications, including storage and transport.

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.
