Insulated Pipe Supports Designed for Cryogenic and High Temperature Pipe Systems for an Ammonia Project
PT&P custom designed 98 insulated pipe supports for an ammonia project at a chemical plant in Louisiana. The supports were designed for cryogenic and high temperature pipe systems, with a 8″ to 22″ baseplate width and 10″ to 28″ saddle length. They were designed for pipe diameters of 6″-24″ and are comprised of polyurethane foam for cryogenic and FTM insulation for high temperatures. Standard Q.C. and dimensional tests were performed prior to shipment.
Pipe Shields/PT&P designed and manufactured pre-insulated pipe shoes for a 54″ diameter pipeline in a chemical processing plant in Texas. The hot shoes are custom designed with a wide base to accommodate lateral movement and axial movements of +/- 4 1/2″. We designed the hot shoes to include additional bolting along with bolting torque recommendations order to help prevent slippage of the pipe inside the pipe shoe. We designed the supports to accommodate vertical loads up to 22,200 lb. and temperatures up to 1800°F. The outer part of the shoe was manufactured of hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel while the inner insulation material is 4″ thick high density calcium silicate insulation.
Piping Technology designed hot shoes with sliding bases for a power plant in Mississippi. The assemblies will be installed on 28″ diameter pipe and include 1-1/2″ thick calcium silicate insulation. Manufacturing fabricated these supports from galvanized carbon steel with a polyethylene base. They are capable of an operating load of 7,200 lb., temperatures up to 1,200 degrees F and an axial movement of +/- 4-1/2″. The shipment was met three days prior to the critical field need date.
Pipe Shields Inc., a division of PT&P, manufactured 215 heavy duty pre-insulated supports for a high temperature application in Oregon. They are 15″ L x 20″ W x 31″ H and are designed to accommodate 14″ – 20″ diameter pipes. The hot shoes have a calcium silicate insulation thickness of 2.5″- 3″. The base, clamps, nuts, jackets and bolts are all fabricated from hot dipped galvanized carbon steel and coated with red oxide paint. Standard Q.C. and dimensional tests were performed prior shipment.
PT&P designed and fabricated heavy duty insulated pipe support anchors for a high temperature application. The base, clamps, nuts, jackets and bolts are all fabricated from hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel. The hot shoes have 3″ thick high density calcium silicate insulation, and are designed for 12″-42″ diameter pipes. The dimensions are 47″ L X 51″ W X 16″ H. Standard Q.C. and dimensional tests were performed prior to an expedited shipment.
We provided a quantity of 274 custom designed hot shoes on an expedited basis to a factory in Arizona. While the normal delivery time on a typical order might be 6-8 weeks, Piping Technology provided these pipe shoes on a 3 week delivery time. The high temperature pipe supports include clamping material fabricated from carbon steel with a red oxide finish, a polyethylene slide base with stainless steel slide plates, high density calcium silicate insulation and an overlapping galvanized sheet metal jacket. The pipe shoes are designed to accommodate 4″-8″ pipes and have an insulation thickness of 2″-3″ and the base measures 11″ to 14″ in width, and 6″ to 15″ in length. The hot shoes are designed for temperatures ranging from 40° F to 600° F. The insulation for these supports is a combination of high density calcium silicate with high strength inserts.
These high temperature pipe supports have a 25″ outside diameter, and were custom designed for a granular activated carbon manufacturing plant in Hawaii. They are fabricated from A-36 carbon steel with 10″ thick high density calcium silicate insulation. The hot shoes were designed for a 4″ diameter pipe-line, temperatures up to 1,800°F and an operating load of 1,000 lb. Standard Q.C. and dimensional tests were performed prior to an expedited shipment.
PT&P fabricated pre-insulated pipe supports from galvanized carbon steel designed for a 49″ diameter pipe and temperatures in excess of 1600°F. The insulation is 12″ thick and composed of lime, silica and reinforcing fibers. This type of insulation features exceptional strength and extremely low water absorption. It is essentially dust-free, contains no asbestos and is a very good material for structural insulation inserts. This “hot shoe” will be used in a cat cracker unit at a refinery in Alabama.
The hot shoes are fabricated from A-36 carbon steel with 304 stainless steel slide plates. The 18″ dia. hot shoe has a maximum vertical load of 5500 lb. and the 24″ dia. hot shoe is capable of loads up to 13,750 lb. All the supports in this project are designed for temperatures of up to 1200°F. In addition to the insulation, these supports are capable of sliding axially or laterally as part of the piping system.
