6000 lb. Load Hot Shoe with Adjustable Lateral Stops for an Oil Refinery
Drawing of Custom Hot Shoe

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.

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.

Cryogenic Supports with Permali® Block

The above design shows cryogenic supports with Permali® block. Permali® block is a laminated phenolic material from layers of wood impregnated under vacuum and heat with synthetic resin. These pipe shoes can be designed to restrain very high axial, lateral and vertical loads. These shoes are used for LNG pipeline sliding supports with TEF slide plates.

28" dia. Hotshoes for a Natural Gas Plant

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 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.

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and manufactured 250 variable sized cold shoes for a chemical plant in Texas.

These cold shoes are designed for cryogenic (low temperature) pipelines where direct contact with the pipe cannot be made.  These shoes come with two pieces, top and bottom, and are made of polyurethane foam.  They are then wrapped in vapor barriers, covered with a protective shield and placed in a pipe saddle.

Inside of the Pipe Anchor

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. manufactured cryogenic pipe anchors for gas refinery in Savannah, Georgia. The pipe anchors were fabricated with stainless steel and insulated with polyurethane foam. In order to prevent cold pumping, better known as temperature driven moisture penetration, polyurethane foam was poured around a stainless steel reinforcing pad. The ten cryogenic pipe anchors were fabricated to support 4-inch, 8-inch and 12-inch pipes. PT&P’s pre-insulated pipe supports department is devoted to the production of pipe insulation productions for both hot and cold applications.

Specially Fabricated Pipe Supports

Specially Fabricated Pipe Supports

The photo above shows three different supports fabricated by Piping Technology & Products, Inc. for a petrochemical facility in Indonesia. The smallest support, (lower right) show the interior layer of polyurethane projecting out of the outside layer. This allows the pipe insulation to overlap when installed. These units provide insulation between the very cold fluid inside the pipe and the hot, humid conditions outside. They also support the weight of the pipe and allow for movement due to thermal expansion and contraction. Micarta was used for certain supports which require greater strength.

Insulated Pipe Supports
Insulated Pipe Supports

The photographs above show insulated pipe supports designed for a system being installed in a very cold climate in Russia. The insulating components are inside next to the pipe. The outside components are galvanized steel. In the foreground of the photo at the right are two fixtures which were built for load testing these pipe supports by applying known forces with a hydraulic load cell. Piping Technology & Products, Inc., fabricated prototype units for a Houston Engineering Firm and tested the units. After successful tests a number of similar units were built for shipment to Russia.
