These cold shoes are used for anchoring pipelines against movement caused by thermal expansion and by fluid flow in the pipe. The total weight of the 10 cold shoes is 8,336 lbs. They have 4 1/2″ of insulation and are made to fit a 12″ pipe. Their length varies between 18″ to 24″ for 6″ to 12″ of axial movement. The cold shoe is made of polyurethane insulation and A36 carbon steel. They are drop-in-place anchors that only need to be welded into the pipe run and fastened to the pipe rack. They were manufactured to specific design loads and movements for an LNG plant in Georgia.

Compact Spring Support Webinar
*Note: Time Zone is CDT * Central Daylight Savings Time / GMT -5h
Live Webinars are 1 PE/PDH Credit for TX Professional Engineers
The Compact Spring Support Webinar will cover key objectives, background, and leading industry problems related to process equipment nozzles (both rotating and non-rotating equipment). First, we will review the challenges involved in the design and analysis of piping with respect to process equipment nozzles. Secondly, we will discuss the types of chronic problems and failures related to process equipment nozzles and present (or introduce) the Compact Spring Support as a solution. During our discussion, we will explain why chronic problems with process equipment exist, describing current design practices as they relate to industry code standards and how the Compact Spring Support addresses these problems directly and effectively. And finally, we will take a quick look at the technical data and sizing program.
