High Temperature Insulated Supports for an HP Steam Header

Type: Pre-Insulated Pipe Supports for High Temperatures “Hot Shoes”
Size: 2″ – 12″ dia. | 12″, 15″, 18″ Long | 4″ and 6″ BOP
Material: Carbon Steel with Thin Blanket Insulation
Testing: Standard Q.C. Inspection | ANSYS Simulation

Piping Technology & Products custom designed and fabricated pre-insulated pipe supports for high temperature application in an HP Steam Header located in Texas. These hot shoes range in size from 2″ to 12″ in diameter and are 12″, 15″ and 18″ long, with BOP of 4″ and 6″. The supports include a thin blanket insulation. The trunnion assembly is resting on a high compressive strength insulation material. These supports are designed for temperatures up to 844°F with an operating load of 17,965 lb. at 732 psig. A total of 95 supports were manufactured for this project, including pipe hangers, pipe shoes with insulation and trunnion supports, as well as pipe shoe clamps without insulation. All supports were inspected by Q.C. and the insulated supports underwent a simulation on ANSYS.

Mechanical Snubbers for a Refinery in Oklahoma

Type: Mechanical Snubbers
Size: Size MSA-10, 36″ OAL, and 30 1/2″ Pin-To-Pin
Material: Carbon Steel with HDG Finish
Design: Operating load of 15,000 lbs and a 6″ Maximum Stroke
Testing: Standard Load Tests

Piping Technology & Products supplied these mechanical snubbers with two end brackets, fabricated from carbon steel with an HDG finish for a refinery in Oklahoma. They are size MSA-10, 36″ OAL, and 30 1/2″ pin-to-pin. The snubbers are designed for an operating load of 15,000 lbs and have a 6″ maximum stroke. Standard load tests were performed prior to shipment. Mechanical snubbers have two modes of operation. In passive mode, i.e., motion caused by thermal loads, the resisting mechanism is disengaged and the snubber “free wheels” with very low resistance. In active mode the mechanism is engaged, and the snubber limits the acceleration to a low threshold value.
