Custom Chrome-Moly Three-Bolt Pipe Clamps for a Power Plant

The pipe clamps are manufactured from 2″ thick by 10″ wide Chrome-Moly (A387 Gr. 22) bar stock and alloy (A 193 Gr. B7) bolting of 2-3/4″ diameter throughout. They are designed for an operating temperature of 1065°F with a maximum design load rating of 35,000 lb. The pipe clamps will be used to support 24″ diameter pipe in a power plant.

Two 16 Dia. HD-2 Hold Down Clamps for an Oil Refinery

Piping Technology and Products, Inc. recently designed and manufactured two HD-2 hold down clamps to fit a 16 pipe at an oil refinery in Michigan.  These hold down clamps are designed to be used on pipe lines where there is a high temperature and great thermal movement requirements. They allow axial movement while restraining lateral movement. The clamp and base plate are fabricated from carbon steel with PTFE, 25% glass filled, bonded to the radius and plate.

PT&P Utilizes 3D-Modeling Technology to Design Pipe Supports for a 750MW Power Plant

3D-Design Clamp

Pipe Supports on Shipping Floor

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. recently designed and fabricated 9 pipe supports with loads up to 75,000 lbs. for a 750MW power plant in Alabama. After extensive engineering hours and structure analysis, PT&P’s engineering department produced a detailed design and 3-D model for the supports that would allow them to run electronic interface checks. The supports are to support the cooling towers’ circulatory water system at the power plant. Six of the 9 supports were designed for a 60” line and 50,000 lb. load, and the remaining 3 were designed for a 78” line and 75,000 lbs. of load.

Furnace Springs Versus Standard Springs The major differences between standard springs and furnace springs are their construction and intended use. Furnace springs operate in much the same way as other variable spring supports. They are designed to support the pipe and tubes that are subject to vertical thermal movement. The design changes come about because, furnace springs are exposed to extreme temperatures.

COATINGS Red oxide primer in order to aviod potential hazards when exposed to high temperatures Hot dipped galvanized which tends to melt the zinc coating. Molten zinc can damage surrounding pipe and equipment.
Unique to its application and intended use
Welded design for housing assembly
Centers the spring coils within the housing and accommodates lug attachments
Bolted configuration for the housing
DESIGN Spring used as a means to determine the loading of the catalyst tubes
