Piping Technology & Products, Inc. fabricated cryogenic pipe supports designed for a 14-inch pipe at a LNG plant in Algeria. The pipe operates below minus 50 degrees F, therefore the pipe supports were fabricated from three different materials in order to accommodate the low temperatures. The upper part, which clamps on to the pipe, was fabricated from a stainless steel plate that retains its strength at low temperatures. The middle section is a laminated phenolic block made from layers of wood impregnated under vacuum with a synthetic resin. A crossed orientation of the hard wood fibers is used to provide extra strength. The laminated phenolic block, which is a poor conductor of heat, was bolted to the bottom plate of the galvanized carbon steel.

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.
