Hydraulic Snubbers Designed For A Steam Generator In Mexico

Type: Hydraulic Snubbers
Size: 24″ up to 30″ Pin-To-Pin | Cylinder Dia. 1.5″ to 3.25″
Material: Carbon Steel
Design: 3,000 lb. to 20,000 lb., with a 6″ Stroke
Testing: Standard Quality Control

PT&P designed Fig. 510 AD short strut hydraulic snubbers for a steam generator at a facility in Mexico. The snubbers ranged in length from 24″ up to 30″ pin-to-pin with cylinder diameters of 1.5″ to 3.25″. A total of 48 snubbers were fabricated from carbon steel and designed for an operating load ranging from 3,000 lb. to 20,000 lb., with a 6″ stroke. Snubbers are used for systems where unrestrained thermal movement must be allowed except during cyclic disturbance. Hydraulic snubbers are designed to protect the piping system when a sudden, heavy load is applied (such as an earthquake of high intensity), which can cause serious vibrations leading to damage and possible failure of the piping system.

Pre-Insulated Cryogenic Supports For A Propylene Dehydrogenation Application At A Petrochemical Plant In Texas

Type: Pre-Insulated Cryogenic Supports
Size: 12” Long Base | 32” Wide Base | 62″ Overall Height | 18” Long Insulation
Material: Polyurethane | Carbon Steel w/ HDG Finish
Design: Operating Temperature -360°F & 42″ NPS
Testing: Standard Quality Control

Piping Technology and Products, Inc. and custom designed two pre-insulated cryogenic supports for a propylene dehydrogenation application at a petrochemical plant in Texas. The insulation is made from a high density polyurethane insulation, with the bearing plates and side bumpers fabricated from carbon steel with an HDG finish. The shoes are capable of insulating and supporting at temperatures as low as -360°F. These were designed to support pipeline diameter of 42” with overall height of 62” diameter. Regular quality control tests were performed with a standard turn-around time.
