We designed a total of ninety-four custom adjustable base supports, similar to Fig. 260 adjustable pipe elbow support, to support elbow trunnions in an oil refinery in Indiana. We fabricated these adjustable base supports from carbon steel plates, all-threaded rods, heavy hex nuts and sch. 80 pipes. They will support pipe sizes ranging in size from 1-1/2″ to 12″ in diameter.
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. has designed and manufactured over 177 tons of supports for the Chad/Cameroon Development Project in Chad, Africa. Adjustable Base Supports designed to support pipe size ranging from 3 to 18″ in diameter were one type of the many supports fabricated for this project.
Each of the hot-dipped galvanized pipe stands has an 8″x8″ base plate and a midrange height of 12″. The pipe stands allow for a maximum travel of +/- 3″. These supports provide for easy adjustment in the field when supporting pipe trunnions on concrete pads or foundations. In addition, these pipe stands have a major advantage when the exact installation heights are not known at the remote job site.
Other supports including constants and variables spring hangers, rigid rod hangers, structural steel, FRP pads, and pre-insulated pipe supports were also manufactured in a range of different specifications and materials.
