Cryogenic and Axial Stop Cold Shoes for an LNG Facility

November 18, 2012


Piping Technology and Products supplied these cryogenic and axial stop cold shoes for an LNG facility in Australia. A total of 28 assemblies were fabricated with carbon steel, stainless steel and Micarta® G-10 insulation blocks. They were a wide range of lengths from 24″ to 36″, widths from 6 3/4″ to 30″ and heights from 9″ to 10 1/4″. The pipe shoes will support pipes ranging in diameter from 6″ to 48″ NPS in cryogenic temperatures as low as -162°C. A special paint system was used for the carbon steel components to resist rust. PMI testing was performed on the stainless parts prior to shipping.

274 Custom Hot Pipe Shoes Rush Delivered in Three Weeks

August 27, 2012

3 Week Turnaround on 274 Custom Designed Hot Shoes

We provided a quantity of 274 custom designed hot shoes on an expedited basis to a factory in Arizona. While the normal delivery time on a typical order might be 6-8 weeks, Piping Technology provided these pipe shoes on a 3 week delivery time. The high temperature pipe supports include clamping material fabricated from carbon steel with a red oxide finish, a polyethylene slide base with stainless steel slide plates, high density calcium silicate insulation and an overlapping galvanized sheet metal jacket. The pipe shoes are designed to accommodate 4″-8″ pipes and have an insulation thickness of 2″-3″ and the base measures 11″ to 14″ in width, and 6″ to 15″ in length. The hot shoes are designed for temperatures ranging from 40° F to 600° F. The insulation for these supports is a combination of high density calcium silicate with high strength inserts.

Cold Insulated Pipe Anchors with Axial Stops

August 15, 2011

Cold insulated pipe anchors with axial stops

Cryogenic pipe supports, ranging in diameter from 6″ to 38″, were designed to support and insulate piping in an LNG receiving and regassification plant. The “cold shoe anchors” were designed for temperatures down to -260°F and a load range of 26,000 lb. to 210,000 lb. A combination of high density polyurethane foam (PUF) and Permali® was used for the insulation. The center stops that are welded to the process pipe were built from 304 stainless steel, and carbon steel was used for the remainder of the shoe.

Pre-Insulated Pipe Supports with 12" Thick Insulation Designed for a 49" High Temperature Line

April 18, 2011

Pre-Insulated Pipe Supports with 12" Thick Insulation Designed for a 49" High Temperature Line

PT&P fabricated pre-insulated pipe supports from galvanized carbon steel designed for a 49″ diameter pipe and temperatures in excess of 1600°F. The insulation is 12″ thick and composed of lime, silica and reinforcing fibers. This type of insulation features exceptional strength and extremely low water absorption. It is essentially dust-free, contains no asbestos and is a very good material for structural insulation inserts. This “hot shoe” will be used in a cat cracker unit at a refinery in Alabama.

Insulated Pipe Supports for Temperatures as Low as -260°F for a 30" Diameter Pipe in a LNG Receiving & Regasification Plant and Refinery

January 25, 2011

Cryogenic Supports for a LNG Receiving & Regasification Plant and Refinery

These cryogenic supports (also known as cold shoes) are fabricated from 20 PCF polyurethane insulation, weigh 650 lb. each and are designed for 30″ diameter pipe. They are comprised of a carbon steel base plate and bearing plate, a vapor barrier and an aluminum jacket. The supports are designed for temperatures as low as -260°F, and measure 27″ length by 44″ height. A total of thirty-four supports were fabricated for natural gas applications, including storage and transport.

Take a Look into the Past: Insulated Pipe Supports

December 17, 2010

Check out our most recent article that looks at the history of insulated pipe supports through the past 100 years.  Learn about the developments made in the 1950’s and 1960’s that introduced the use of “Foam Glass”, a lightweight material that is manufactured primarily from recycled glass and used in the design of insulated pipe supports. Later, polyurethane was developed to provide greater load carrying capabilities. Read the full article on the:
