PT&P supplied 41 custom manifolds with globe and gate valves to a manufacturing complex in La Porte, Texas. The manifolds were installed in a hot water tracing supply and return system at a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) facility. Each manifold was welded to the exact specifications listed on the production drawing developed. The body was fabricated from 2” and 1” seamless XS pipe. The ports were FNPT and flange connection for field installation. All Manifolds were supplied with welded brackets and vertical support stands. The material used for the valves and flanges were SA-105, pipe SA -106B, and the supports are manufactured from SA-36. The overall height is 72″, and the dimensions are 1″ branches x 1-1/2″ run line and 1″ branches x 2″ run line. Inspection and Q.C. tests were performed by an internal and TPI team including 100 % dimensional inspection, NDE(RT,PT), hardness, and hydro-test at 430 PSIG.

Bellmouth Reducers & Custom Pipe Spools Designed for an Ammonia Plant

Type: Bellmouth Reducers, Ring Flanges, Pipe Spool Elbows
Size: 36” NPS | Opened to 48″ NPS
Material: Carbon Steel  | 304 Stainless Steel
Design: 150°F | 150 PSI Operating Pressure

PT&P designed and manufactured bellmouth reducers, ring flanges and custom pipe spool elbows for an Ammonia Plant in Texas. Bellmouth reducers are a single piece component used to transition a large outside diameter into a smaller outside diameter piping. These reducers are used in the cooling process; the shape allows for drawing in maximum amounts of air while preventing loss. The bellmouths are fabricated from carbon steel and 304 stainless steel. They are designed for operating temperatures of 150°F with an operating pressure of 150 PSI. Dimensions are 36” NPS opened to 48” bellmouth. Tests that were performed are spot x-ray, visual and dimensional, PMI-alloys and stainless steel.

Closure Flange Support Hinges for Supporting Medium to Heavy Duty Blind Flanges

Permanent and Removable Hinges for Supporting a Medium to Heavy Duty Blind Flange
Closure Flange Support Hinges for Supporting Medium to Heavy Duty Blind Flanges

Presently, blind flanges are used to provide an airtight cover to various piping systems that include pipelines in the oil industry, heat exchangers, ships, tanks, etc.

Routine maintenance requires the heavy duty blind flange to be removed for cleaning and repairs. However, for these types of flanges, it is quite difficult to disassemble, clean and repair. It typically requires employing a forklift, crane, or other lifting devices. This can require excessive man-hours, and the alignment of the flanges can remain unpredictable.

PT&P introduced a closure flange hinge with specially designed self‐locking bolts and two self-lubricated hinge studs to support the blind flange when all the fastening bolts are removed for maintenance or replacement. The blind flange can be opened like a “door” with little effort. Our product opens up to 180 degrees, providing full accessibility to work on the pipeline, heat exchanger, or other equipment.

To solve the issues, PT&P invented two versions of closure flange hinges for blind flanges: temporary / removable hinge and permanent / fixed hinge

PT&P recently designed 159 permanent and removable hinges for up to 72″ diameters, We can accommodate for larger sizes upon request.
