Piping Technology & Products, Inc. recently designed and manufactured a hydraulic snubber weighing 4000 pounds for an oil refinery in Mexico. The snubber is fabricated from carbon steel with dimensions of 17 x 101. It supports a maximum load of 225,000 lbs. The purpose of the hydraulic snubber is to reduce shock loading created by events such as water hammer or an earthquake. To meet customer specifications, the hydraulic snubber was coated with a three-coat paint system.
