Mechanical Snubbers Designed for an Industrial Chemical Plant in Brazil

Type: Mechanical Snubbers
Size: Length: 40-3/8” to 60-3/4″
Material: Carbon Steel | Hot-dipped Galvanized | Paint
Design: 1,000 lb.  – 6,000 Load | Stroke: 4″ – 5″

PT&P designed mechanical snubber assemblies for an industrial chemical plant in Brazil. This project included mechanical snubber assemblies along with, insulated, constant, variable, and structural supports. The operating load ratings are from 1,000 lb. to 6,000 lb., and lengths range from a 40-3/8” to 60-3/4″ pin to pin. The snubbers have a 4” to 5” of stroke. All the assemblies were designed with a carbon steel pipe extension pipe, transition plate, heavy hex nuts, and adapter brackets. The snubbers are hot-dipped galvanized and painted to protect against corrosion. Visual tests and pull test were performed.
