Pre-Insulated Pipe Supports with 12″ Thick Insulation Designed for a 49″ High Temperature Line

April 18th, 2011 No comments

Pre-Insulated Pipe Supports with 12" Thick Insulation Designed for a 49" High Temperature Line

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.

164 Wide Base Sliding Insulated Supports

164 Wide Base Sliding Insulated Supports

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.

Shipping Pre-Insulated Supports

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and fabricated rotational anchor pre-insulated pipe supports for a fluid processing plant in Kuwait. The supports range in size from 24″ to 34″ in diameter and are capable of withstanding 12,500 lb. of vertical load. The bottom of the hot shoe is fabricated from carbon steel and the top from stainless steel.

These supports include stainless steel inner thrust plates that function as an anchor to prohibit the pipe from rotating within the shoe. These supports are designed for steam super heater lines and provide thermal insulation for the pipe in order to prevent heat loss and condensation.

Hot Shoes for a Power Plant in Argentina

Hot Shoe Inspection

Piping Technology and Products, Inc. received an order for a power plant in Argentina from our Pipe Shields division. This order consisted of variable assemblies, constant support assemblies, sway struts, and pre insulated pipe supports. Pipe sizes supported were up to 42” with 3” of insulation ranging from 340 lb. to 1300 lb. All hot shoes were designed to carry the load, along with its own weight and insulation. Since these pre-insulated supports are used for high temperature pipes, PT&P used calcium silicate as insulation and hot dipped galvanized the steel as a rust inhibitor. Piping Technology and Products Inc. handled all logistics of the international shipment.

Hot Shoe Insulation

These pre-insulated hot shoes are manufactured from carbon steel and insulated with Firetemp® and Foamglas. Firetemp® is a structural insert designed to carry the load capacity of the pipe while Foamglas is fragile and can support temperatures of up to 900F. The hot shoes measure 19 long with the base of pipe at 6. They weigh between 58 lbs to 185 lbs. The pre-insulated shoes are designed to maintain the insulated pipes at a temperature for functionality.

6000 lb. Load Hot Shoe with Adjustable Lateral Stops for an Oil Refinery

Drawing of Custom Hot Shoe

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. recently assisted in the design and fabrication of a special hot shoe with adjustable lateral stops for an oil refinery in LA. The shoe assembly is designed to support loads up to 6000 lb. and to guide pipes that may reach up to 1200°F. The hot shoe consists of a 12 thick mineral wool insulation, an inner clamp surrounded by four load transfer plates, an outer guiding clamp, and four guide assemblies with PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide plates. The load transfer plates provide support and prevent damage to the insulation between the inner and outer guiding clamp.

The guide assemblies (comprised of the four guides on the shoe and the adjustable stops) are designed to account for lateral, vertical, and axial movement. PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide plates are used to minimize friction caused by movement between the shoe and the adjustable stops. The adjustable stops are fabricated from a 1 x 12 x 19 carbon steel plate with four rods and two angles. These allow for flexibility in adjusting the distance/gap within each guide assembly to control movement.

28" dia. Hotshoes for a Natural Gas Plant

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. recently designed and manufactured twenty 28″ dia. Hotshoes (high temperature pre-insulated pipe supports) for a natural gas plant in Massachusetts. These supports are assembled with a 5″ thick high-density Calcium silicate insulation layer, in addition to stainless steel, Kaowool, and PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide plate materials. The supports are designed to support loads from 25 kips-50 kips at an operating temperature of 1800 degrees F. The shoes also allow for a travel of 7″ where applicable. PT&P also designed and fabricated rod hangers with variable spring supports for this project.

Hot Shoes for a Chemical Plant in Texas

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and manufactured 60 Marinite® hot shoes for a chemical plant in Texas.

These hot shoes are composed of Marinite®(high-density calcium silicate) and carbon steel.  They were made for 8 NPS with 7 insulation.  These shoes are used on steam lines, effluent lines, and any other process lines where it’s imperative that thermal energy is not lost through the pipe support.  Tests were performed to show outer skin temperature at operating conditions.
