PT&P manufactured sway struts for one of the largest LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) operations in the world. LNG, considered a “Clean Energy” and recognized as the cleanest fossil fuel, is used in several ways in our daily lives for heating, cooking, and generating electricity. LNG is also used commercially to manufacture products like fertilizers, paper, glass, clothing, food processing, medicines, commercial vehicles in addition to generating electricity. The use of LNG helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions which helps to combat global warming. Piping Technology & Products manufactures sway struts for use in a wide range of applications in power, refineries, chemical, and solar plants to restrain movement in tension (or X plane) while allowing lateral movement (in the Y and Z plane). These Fig. 2100-F sway struts are designed with 4″ adjustment for loads up to 8,000 lb. The pins are fabricated from high alloy steel for added strength and the threaded rod ends are carbon steel and hot-dipped galvanized. The sway strut body was hot-dipped galvanized after the donut and pipe were welded. The rod ends and end brackets were galvanized a second time for added corrosion resistance after the holes for the IKO bearings and pins were enlarged to fit these component parts. The C-C dimensions are 42-1/4″, 41-1/2″, and 28″. A quality control inspection involving thread engagement and overall visual inspection was completed before shipment. In addition to sway struts, we have supplied over 3 million supports to LNG plants all over the world. PT&P has been a key supplier in LNG piping systems for almost every operator today.
