PT&P designed and manufactured a special elevated hold-down clamp, including a unique laminated vibration dampening lining. The entire pipe hanger assembly stands 22′ high and is coated with a carboline zinc finish. After installation and resumption of operations, the vibrations are now almost imperceptible.

Fronek Anchor/Darling, a division of PT&P, designed and manufactured hydraulic snubbers with protective boots for a hydro-sulfuric acid environment in a geothermal power plant. They measure 53-5/8″ pin-to-pin with a 3-1/4″ cylinder bore size and 6″ stroke.

The snubbers are designed for an actual load of 15,400 lb., but have a rated load capacity of 20,000 lb. They are fabricated from carbon and alloy steel, and include two coats of epoxy-based paint. An activation velocity test was performed, along with a release rate and drag characteristics test.
