Fronek Anchor/Darling, a division of PT&P, designed and manufactured hydraulic snubbers for Geothermal power plants. Historically, these plants are located near tectonic plate boundaries in the Earth’s crust where thermal activity is easily tapped into. This heat energy is transferred into electrical energy through the use of turbines, generators, and heat exchangers. These snubbers are fabricated from stainless steel and include a special paint system suitable for a Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) environment. All the snubbers for this application were a 2-1/2 bore size, capable of operating at loads up to 10,000 lb., and were provided with either 6″ or 12″ of available stroke. The Pin-to-Pin dimensions ranged from approximately 36″ to 54″ Each snubber was tested at its rated capacity to assure acceptable dynamic performance once it is installed in the field.

Slide Plates & Pipe Rollers in the Fight Against Friction
*Note: Time Zone is CDT * Central Daylight Savings Time / GMT -5h
Live Webinars are 1 PE/PDH Credit for TX Professional Engineers
Discover the secret to a lower coefficient of friction while permitting translational motion or movement with the supporting element. Learn about the different types of slide plates and pipe rollers used for various applications. View the design, load capabilities, and installation and maintenance guidelines for both slide plates and pipe rollers. See numerous photos featuring combinations with other critical pipe supports in order to allow for movement or a low coefficient of friction. Increase your understanding of the value-added services that are offered by PT&P, and rest assured that your slide plate and pipe roller needs can be taken care of by our 24×7 web-based emergency services, field service, and quick turnaround time when you need it most.
