Custom Sway Strut and Pipe Clamp Assemblies for an LNG Plant in Australia

PT&P fabricated and designed 52 of these custom sway strut assemblies for a liquid natural gas plant in Australia. These are manufactured from carbon steel with 304 stainless steel pins. The pipe sizes range from 2”-72” diameter, with a total length ranging from 27” to 137”. The sway struts are fabricated to restrain either tensile or compressive force in one direction while providing for movement due to thermal expansion or contraction in another direction. These sway struts have an operating temperature of 650°F and are designed for operating loads ranging of 650 lb. to 120,000 lb.

Alternate View of Sway Struts

Sway struts are used to restrain movement of piping in one direction while providing for movement due to thermal expansion or contraction in another direction. These sway struts are made of ASTM A387 GR22 weighing at 1,485 lbs each. They are 6″ in diameter and 8’2″ long and are used for main steam valve supports with specifically designed spacers, pins, and retainers capable of restraining movement up to 90,000 lbs at high temperatures exceeding 750F. The turnaround time for this was 6 weeks.
