Piping Technology designed hot shoes with sliding bases for a power plant in Mississippi. The assemblies will be installed on 28″ diameter pipe and include 1-1/2″ thick calcium silicate insulation. Manufacturing fabricated these supports from galvanized carbon steel with a polyethylene base. They are capable of an operating load of 7,200 lb., temperatures up to 1,200 degrees F and an axial movement of +/- 4-1/2″. The shipment was met three days prior to the critical field need date.
