Fronek Anchor/Darling Enterprises, a division of PT&P, designed snubbers for a LNG facility in Texas. These Fig. 511 AD hydraulic snubbers range in size from 76″ – 85″ piston-to-piston and are fabricated from carbon steel. They are designed for a maximum load of 32,000 lb., 6″ stroke and have a 4″ diameter cylinder. 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. A cycle test throughout the full stroke from zero to fully extended was performed prior to shipment

Piping Engineering Training – The PT&P Process Webinar
Join us for introductory training on various types of pipe supports, expansion joints, vibration solutions, dynamic restraints, and more. We will discuss manufacturing systems for mass customization, volume production, rapid delivery, flexibility, and corrosion management. We will also go over pipe stress, material properties/selection, and contact corrosion. Learn about our workflows, turnaround strategy, and see real issues covered in some of our case studies. Lastly, view a new technology hitting the industry with data and examples.
This presentation has been given by PT&P to over 30 operating plants this year and refined with the input of Fixed Equipment Engineering, Maintenance, and Inspection teams. The PT&P expert will draw on this experience to provide practical insights into the challenges facing operating plants in their piping systems.
