How does a cold shoe pipe support work?

A cold shoe or pre-insulated cryogenic support utilizes polyurethane foam as both an insulating material and a load bearing member of the support. This allows the pipe surface to be completely encapsulated by the foam component without relying upon a structural member to support the load.
