PT&P designed Micarta® block assemblies for placement beneath the saddle support of a vessel at an oil refinery in Texas. These insulated supports measure 2” x 12” x 81” and include PTFE, 25% glass-filled material bonded to the top of the Micarta®. Micarta® consists of glass fabric with an epoxy resin, which provides great insulating characteristics and superior physical properties. The blocks are designed to prevent cryogenic temperatures down to -454°F from transferring past the base of the support to the supporting steel or foundation. Visual and dimensional tests were performed prior to shipment.

Trunnions with Micarta ® G-10 Designed for a Cryogenic Pipeline at an LNG Facility

April 25, 2018

Trunnions Designed for a Cryogenic Pipeline at an LNG Facility

Type: Trunnions for Cryogenic Temperatures
Size: 8″-24″ Dia. | 12″-18″ L | 6″-15″ W | 6″-40″ H
Material: Micarta® G-10 Insulation | CS | SS
Design: Cryogenic Temperatures of -320°F
Testing: MTR’s | Non Destriuctive (PMI) | Q.C.

PT&P custom designed trunnions for a cryogenic pipeline at an LNG facility in Australia. The insulated supports were fabricated with carbon steel base plates, 304L stainless steel plates and fasteners. To prevent cryogenic temperatures of -320°F from transferring to the base of the trunnion support, Micarta® G-10 was used as insulator. The trunnions were designed to support pipe sizes from 8”-24” with dimensions ranging from 12”-18” in length, 6”-15” in width and 6”-40” in height. MTR’s were provided, and non-destructive testing (PMI) was preformed, along with standard Q.C. inspection prior to shipment.

This type of support is available in pipe sizes between 1/2″ to 42″ NPS; however, PT&P can customize any size needed. The standard material for these supports are galvanized or hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel. These supports were customized with Micarta® instead of the standard high density polyurethane with vapor barrier. When ordering, specify pipe size, insulation thickness and length. See more on Figure CS-6030 from our cryogenic pipe supports section.

Piping Technology & Products and Pipe Shields have been a major international supplier of pipe shoes and pre-insulated supports for more than 10 years. Our cryogenic pipe supports comply with the following standards ANSI / ASME B31.1 & B31.3 and The Manufacturers Standardization Society SP-58, 69, & 89.
