The structural pipe supports are fabricated from carbon steel and coated with red oxide primer. The structural steel will be stored in a warehouse for several months while the power plant is being built. Due to the plant’s location along the United States East Coast, the use of the red oxide primer was selected. Also, modifications were made to our standard “insulation saddles” to allow for a higher load capacity; which can be seen in the foreground of the image above.
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. Designed and Fabricated Structural Pipe Hangers with Megalug® Pipe Attachments.
These are carbon steel structural supports designed for 6″, 10″ and 12″ ductile iron pipe. They are hot dip galvanized to protect against corrosion and will be used in conjunction with hydraulic snubbers. The hydraulic snubbers are used to protect against axial shock loading, as well as providing vertical weight support.
Each support utilizes a Megalug pipe attachment to eliminate the need for field welding. The Megalug® attachments are designed to “bite” into the sides of the pipe providing an attachment point for the flanges on the fabricated clamp.
The 6″ supports are designed for a maximum vertical load of 3,770 pounds, while the 10″ and 12″ supports are designed for a maximum vertical load of 11,630 pounds. All of the supports are built for an overall height of 55-1/8″ from the upper support steel to pipe centerline.
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. fabricated a Cantilevered Canopy for the entrance of an International State Department building. The Canopy was fabricated using ten 20-foot long girders. These girders were connected by sixty-three structural steel members. Together, they formed the 80-foot width of the Canopy. The wooden sheathing and architectural cladding that is supported by the canopy’s inner steel structure was installed at the construction site.
The fabricated girders and structural members combined weight exceeds 33,000 lb.
Piping Technology & Products also supplied the steel framing that supports the sheathing and cladding, roof drains and piping installed inside the canopy.
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Pipe Shields, Inc. designed and fabricated many structural pipe hangers for an on-going project to rebuild the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. The pipe hangers are made out of A-36 carbon steel and galvanized to withstand corrosion from the ocean waters and rough winds. These pipe supports will be welded to Pipe Shields’ C Model Anchor Plates, which are set in a cast concrete to the bottom cavity of the bridge.
Supports pictured utilize friction holding devices known as MegaLug®, which permit attachment to the pipes without welding. These supports were designed and fabricated to include improvements in regard to strength and durability to withstand high loads during earthquakes and other seismic events.
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. recently custom designed and fabricated an 11′ x 11′ x 11′ six structural frame for a power plant in California.
Each post of the frame measures 11′x11′x11′ with knee braces 15′ long at 45º to the vertical post. The structure is made of carbon steel and includes W6X15 beams. The frame supports 24′ auxiliary cooling water lines and can sustain vertical operating loads of up to 13,500 lbs. This structure is also designed to withstand a seismic loading factor of .49 in all directions.

PT&P custom designed and fabricated a 27′ x 16′ x 21′ structural frame to be placed on the sea-bed for an offshore rig. This assembly will be used as an undersea cable support frame, capable of withstanding a load of 600 Kilonewtons (68,000 lbs for each pad). It is constructed of 8 tube-steel, a 10 channel, and a steel plate. The frame will remain stationary on the sea-bed and is designed to endure heavy wave action when lowered to or raised from the sea-bed.
Finite element analysis of the lifting lug on the structure was performed to verify load conditions. A trial fit-up of bolted sections was also conducted to ensure the structural frame will assemble easily before being placed in position.
This 6′ x 13 ½’ pipe support structure is made of carbon steel and also includes beams, plates, and angles. Several of these structures were made for sites in Texas that convert landfill gas to energy.

Piping Technology & Products, Inc., designed and fabricated over 1,000 standard pipe supports for a chemical agent disposal facility. These supports are to be used in a corrosive environment, therefore a unique, off white coating known as chemical resistant epoxy was used to cover the carbon steel, structural members.
The hardware was hot dipped galvanized, but in some cases, the u-bolts were coated with neoprene. Frames, guides, cantilever and axial stop supports comprised of the bulk of the material, however other support assembly components included rod hangers, clamped shoes and riser clamps.
The picture above is of galvanized knee braces. Piping Technology & Products, Inc. can meet most any fabrication requirement requested in any industry, i.e. refineries, chemical plants, power plants, etc.
