Piping Technology and Products, Inc. recently fabricated and designed several sliding cold shoes with lateral restraint for a river site in Georgia. The sliding cold shoes have a frame of A36 carbon steel. These were designed to support pipes of 14 to 36 in diameter, insulated with 4.5 to 5 in thick layers of polyurethane foam.Read More
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. custom designed eight cold shoes for a plant in Egypt. The pipe diameters of these shoes range from 10 to 18, and they weigh up to 2300 lbs. These cold shoes were designed to support a vertical cold line. The maximum load for this product is 28,000 lbs. These products were made from Micarta G10, A240 304L and A36.Read More
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. recently custom designed and manufactured seventy-seven cold supports for company in Georgia. The pipe sizes for these cold supports are 3” NPS to 30” NPS. Total weight of the supports supplies 15000 lbs. The product can support temperatures from -300 F to 150 F. The cold supports were manufactured from Polyurethane, carbon steel and stainless steel.Read More
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. custom designed and manufactured 86 pre-insulated pipe supports for a customer. The pipe supports are specifically designed for use in cryogenic lines using polyurethane insulation that can withstand temperatures as low as -51° F. The supports weigh between 17 & 36 lbs. each and are designed for pipe sizes ranging from 2 to 4 in diameter. The clamp and base used with this pipe support are fabricated from A36 carbon steel. Upon customer’s request, a three layer customized paint was applied to the clamp and base.Read More
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. recently assisted in the design and fabrication of a special hot shoe with adjustable lateral stops for an oil refinery in LA. The shoe assembly is designed to support loads up to 6000 lb. and to guide pipes that may reach up to 1200°F. The hot shoe consists of a 12 thick mineral wool insulation, an inner clamp surrounded by four load transfer plates, an outer guiding clamp, and four guide assemblies with PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide plates. The load transfer plates provide support and prevent damage to the insulation between the inner and outer guiding clamp.
The guide assemblies (comprised of the four guides on the shoe and the adjustable stops) are designed to account for lateral, vertical, and axial movement. PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide plates are used to minimize friction caused by movement between the shoe and the adjustable stops. The adjustable stops are fabricated from a 1 x 12 x 19 carbon steel plate with four rods and two angles. These allow for flexibility in adjusting the distance/gap within each guide assembly to control movement.Read More
PT&P recently designed and manufactured over 1,000 Coldshoes for an LNG Plant in Egypt. These shoes are designed to support loads up to 75,000 lbs. at an operating temperature of -350°F. They are customized to fit pipe sizes of 20”, 24”, 30”, and 36”. All Coldshoes are composed of stainless steel with a Micarta® insulator. Micarta® is a woven glass fabric laminated with epoxy resin. It is extremely high in mechanical strength, has low moisture absorption and dissipative factors, and has superior electrical characteristics which are exhibited over a wide range of temperatures and humidities.

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. recently designed and manufactured twenty 28″ dia. Hotshoes (high temperature pre-insulated pipe supports) for a natural gas plant in Massachusetts. These supports are assembled with a 5″ thick high-density Calcium silicate insulation layer, in addition to stainless steel, Kaowool, and PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide plate materials. The supports are designed to support loads from 25 kips-50 kips at an operating temperature of 1800 degrees F. The shoes also allow for a travel of 7″ where applicable. PT&P also designed and fabricated rod hangers with variable spring supports for this project.

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and manufactured 44 shoes consisting of six guided and axial hot shoes, 10 guided hot shoes, and 28 sliding hot shoes. The materials used were calcium silicate, Marinite®, stainless steel plates, and PTFE, 25% glass filled. These shoes were designed for 8″ pipe with 7″ insulation with a load capacity of 5,100 lbs.Read More
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and manufactured 60 Marinite® hot shoes for a chemical plant in Texas.
These hot shoes are composed of Marinite®(high-density calcium silicate) and carbon steel. They were made for 8 NPS with 7 insulation. These shoes are used on steam lines, effluent lines, and any other process lines where it’s imperative that thermal energy is not lost through the pipe support. Tests were performed to show outer skin temperature at operating conditions.Read More
