Fronek Anchor/Darling Enterprises, a division of PT&P designed and fabricated hydraulic snubbers for a geothermal facility in California. The Fig. 510 AD snubbers ranged in size from 34-3/4″ to 37-5/8″ piston-to-piston and were designed for a 50,000 lb. maximum load, 5″ cylinder size and a 6″ stroke. The Fig. 511 AD snubbers ranged in size from 56-15/16″ to 59-5/16″ P-P and were designed for a 20,000 lb. maximum load, 2-1/2″ cylinder size and a 6″ stroke. 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 complete destruction. A custom three-bolt pipe clamp fabricated from carbon steel was designed to fit in a limited space. A cycle test throughout the full stroke from zero to fully extended was performed prior to shipment.
