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.
