Cryogenic Pipe Supports Designed For A Facility In Massachusetts

Type: Cryogenic Pipe Supports
Material: Carbon Steel | Polyurethane
Design: -320°F | 36″ – 48″ Dia. | 52″ W x 57″ H x 67″ L

PT&P received an order to custom design 16 cryogenic pipe supports for a contractor in Massachusetts. They needed a pipe forming a T-section lined with insulation and trimmed to accommodate the pipe perpendicular to the shoe length. The overall dimensions of the order are pipe sizes ranging from 36″ to 48″ in diameter, 52″ width and 57″ to 67″ height. Our insulation is designed to support the pipe and its contents. When insulated pipes are supported, the weight of the pipe, the contents, the operating temperature, and the amount of energy loss must be considered. In order to support the pipe and minimize energy loss from heat transfer, a pre-insulated pipe support is necessary. If the material in the pipe is high temperature such as high pressure steam or heating oil, then high temperature insulation is required, and these supports are called hot shoes. If the material is cold, such as liquefied natural gas, cooling water or ammonia, then low temperature insulation is needed, and these types of supports are called cold shoes.
