24" Pipe Shoe with Clamps

24" Pipe Shoe with Clamps

This particular 24″ pipe shoe was specially designed and fabricated during a planned plant outage. Instead of the normal delivery time of 3-4 weeks, Piping Technology & Products, Inc. finished this project in just one week. This pipe shoe with clamps was designed for 12,900 lb. vertical and 3,000 lb. lateral load. This 1″ thick carbon steel pipe shoe was designed to handle 650°F and has a PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide plate installed to allow for axial movement.

Cold Shoes Being Assembled

These pre-insulated pipe supports were manufactured for a Houston based engineering and construction company to complete an on-going project in South Africa. The polyurethane foam insulation is wrapped with a vapor barrier to prevent moisture, and the ends are coated with a monolar mastic paint to seal the pores. The carbon steel fabrication that surrounds the insulation has an elaborate three-coat paint system to help protect the steel from corrosion. This design allows for an integral combination of insulation and structural support in one pipe support assembly. It also minimizes labor in the field in regards to the installation of insulation.

PT&P Aids in the Immediate Replacement of over 160 Pipe Shoes

PT&P Aids in the Immediate Replacement of over 160 Pipe Shoes

PT&P Aids in the Immediate Replacement of over 160 Pipe Shoes

PT&P was called on by an energy center in Oklahoma to inspect failing pipe shoes designed for temperatures ranging from 650 to 1065 °F supplied by another company.  After thorough inspection, PT&P’s field service representatives concluded that the problem was due to the existing pipe clamps’ inability to firmly grip the pipe during expansion. This exposed the pipes to atmospheric moisture, resulting in both heat loss and deterioration. To alleviate the situation, PT&P designed secured pipe clamps that were bolted and torqued such that the entire pipe shoe would move with the pipe’s expansion. PT&P’s field service team also provided on-site installation of the replacement pipe shoes. The entire process involved stripping of the existing damaged insulation, removal of the failing supports, and installation of new pipe shoes and insulation.

Pipe Shoes in the Field

Over 160 pipe shoes were engineered, manufactured, and installed for this energy center. The fabricated pipe shoes, designed for pipe sizes ranging from 12 to 28″ in diameter, are equipped with special base plate and slide bearing plate combinations which allowed axial movement from 1/2″ to 7″ and lateral movement up to 10 1/2″. In addition, they were designed to support a maximum vertical and lateral load of 38,000 lb. and 7,600 lb. respectively.

Standard Pipe Shoes for a Power Plant

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and manufactured these Fig. 1400 pipe shoes for a power plant in Canada.

These Fig. 1400 pipe shoes are a combination of PT&P Fig. 900 and 400.  These shoes are particularly made from carbon steel and graphite with 4” B.O.P (bottom of the pipe).  They are used to control pipe movement by guiding.  These shoes also prevent vertical and horizontal movement and allow axial movement.  They are mainly used in power plants or areas where there is cyclical filling and emptying of the pipe.

Pipe Shoes with Loads up to 75,000 lb.

Pipe Shoes with Loads up to 75,000 lb.

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and fabricated several pipe shoes with loads up to 75,000 lbs. respectively, for a 750MW power plant in Alabama.

The shoes are to support the cooling towers’ circulatory water system at the power plant. The majority of the shoes were designed for a 60″ line and 50,000 lb. load, and the remaining few were designed for a 78″ line and 75,000 lbs. of load. After extensive engineering hours and structure analysis, PT&P’s engineering department was able to produce a detailed design and 3-D model for the supports that would allow them to run electronic interface checks.
