PT&P manufactured custom instrument stands designed to mount instrument panels in an LNG facility located in Australia. We are supplying 8,000 assemblies fabricated from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. The average size measures 68″ in length, 22″ in width and 82″ in height. Total weight to be shipped is over 800,000 pounds. All assemblies underwent quality control inspection prior to shipment.
Fronek Anchor/Darling Enterprises Inc., a division of PT&P designed and fabricated this hydraulic snubber assembly for a gas turbine in a natural gas-fired combined cycle generating power plant in Pennsylvania. This fig -510AD is designed for a 10,000 lb. load and a 6″ stroke. It measures 28-1/2″ pin-to-pin and has a 2-1/2″ diameter cylinder. It is designed for an operating temperature of 1052°F and a movement of 4-1/8″. This snubber was tested using the STADAS test machine prior to shipping.
PT&P custom designed PTFE slide plates for an oil refinery in Texas. These slide plate assemblies are comprised of 3/32″ thick 25% glass filled (PTFE) slide plates bonded to hot dipped galvanized carbon steel backing plates. The assemblies measure 47-1/2″ long by 36-1/2″ wide and 45″ long by 16″ wide. PTFE material provides a low coefficient of friction, is easy to install, does not require surface treatments, or grouting, and is unaffected by weather conditions.
These structural supports were designed to mount instrument panels in a liquid natural gas facility in Australia. All 72 assemblies were fabricated from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. The dimensions are 68″ x 82″ x 10″ and all assemblies underwent quality control inspection prior to shipment.
PT&P custom designed F-type variable spring supports for an oil refinery in Saudi Arabia. These assemblies range in height from 14-1/4″ to 39-3/8″ and include stainless steel slide plates and upper permanent travel stops. Some of the variables include an additional pipe extension to meet the installation height requirement. The variables are fabricated from carbon steel and painted with a special paint to resist corrosion. All variable assemblies underwent a standard variable spring test prior to shipment.
PT&P manufactured B type constant spring supports for a hydrocracker application at a refinery in Port Author, TX. These custom designed constants are 83″ x 41″ x 20″, and designed to support a 53,000 lb. riser pipe through two trunnions. The constants are designed for an operating load of 26,700 lb. with 10-1/2″ of total travel. They are fabricated from A36 carbon steel and underwent standard load and travel testing prior to shipment.
PT&P designed G-Type variable spring supports for a chemical plant in Texas. The variables are comprised of two standard spring housing joined together with an intermediate bridge assembly. The bridge assembly is customized to match existing site conditions which allows for use in applications with limited space or interferences. The variables are fabricated from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. The assemblies were designed for a total operating load of 23,522 lb. with a downward design travel of 3/8″. Each assembly underwent a standard load test prior to shipment.
Fronek Anchor/Darling Enterprises, a division of PT&P, designed snubbers for a LNG facility in Texas. These Fig. 511 AD hydraulic snubbers range in size from 76″ – 85″ piston-to-piston and are fabricated from carbon steel. They are designed for a maximum load of 32,000 lb., 6″ stroke and have a 4″ diameter cylinder. Hydraulic snubbers are designed to protect the piping system when a sudden, heavy load is applied (such as an earthquake of high intensity), which can cause serious vibrations leading to damage and possible failure of the piping system. A cycle test throughout the full stroke from zero to fully extended was performed prior to shipment
The Reynolds Number is a dimensionless number. It is defined as the ratio of the dynamic forces of mass flow to the shear stress due to viscosity.
