Sizes of mechanical snubbers for this project range between 18″ and 80″ in the retracted position. The maximum load capacity ranges between 700 and 10,000 lb. Mechanical snubbers function to restrain thermal movement in abnormal circumstances such as earthquakes, hydraulic hammer, and upstream pipe rupture. The snubbers were tested at both high and low rates of loading on a computer controlled hydraulic test machine to ensure quality assurance.

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and fabricated adjustable pipe stands to support ductile iron pipe. Due to ductile iron pipes having non-standard diameters, each of the supports were custom fabricated per the customers’ requirements regarding pipe diameter and elevation. All the supports were fabricated from carbon steel with an HDG finish and designed to provide nine inches (+/- 4.50″) of adjustment and each support has an 11″ x 11″ base plate.
(Left) Cradle type supports are designed with an installed height of 84″ from the base to the bottom of pipe (BOP).
(Middle) Flange type supports are designed with an installed height of 81-1/4″ from the base to the BOP.
(Right) Tee type supports are designed for an installed height of 77″ from base to BOP.
They will be used on horizontal piping and will be attached at their base to pre-case concrete pedestals. Each base plate has been pre-drilled to accept anchor bolts provided at the site. The pipe stand’s threaded adjustment column will allow field personnel to adjust the height of each support. They can also accurately place the pipe at the required elevation without using shims or modifying the concrete pedestal.
