These special clamped pipe shoes with isolators were supplied for an offshore vessel project. Offshore renewable energy companies are exploring the viability of developing an offshore charging facility for electrified vessels and using ammonia-powered or hydrogen-powered fuel cells to power marine vessels. As the world’s only major Expansion Joints and Engineered Pipe Supports manufacturer, we are uniquely positioned to service various piping needs. The 210 pipe shoes were fabricated from carbon steel for pipe sizes ranging from 1″ to 24″ in diameter. They are supplied with a hot-dipped galvanized finish for corrosion resistance and range in length from 8″ to 16″ with 4″ from the BOP. These pipe shoes include a dampening isolator in between the pipe and the shoe to reduce vibration and noise. The isolator pad is typically made of a “rubber bonded cork elastomeric” which can be designed to suit the application for temperature and other system needs as specified.
1,485 supports were supplied for this order, including these pipe shoes. At Piping Technology and Products, we supply products to facilities that are helping to reduce carbon emissions and dependence on fossil fuels.
