Cold Shoe Anchor Supports with 4″ Thick G10 Micarta® Insulation

Cold Shoe Anchor Supports with 4" Thick G10 Micarta® Insulation

PT&P Cold Shoe Anchors are designed to support pipe sizes ranging from 12″ to 72″ in diameter. In this case, the supports were custom designed for one of the largest nitrogen generation systems for LNG in the Southern Hemisphere. The project employed a modular approach to its execution which included the assembly of large, complex, and heavy Process Modules as well as simple and relatively light Yard Rack Modules.

The saddles are fabricated from A240-Gr. 304L stainless steel and the base plates are fabricated from galvanized A516 Gr. 70N carbon steel. The insulation is 4″ thick G10 Micarta® material and capable of insulating from temperatures down to -300°F. G10 shoes are welded directly to the pipe spool, inspected, and tested prior to shipping which saves field installation and inspection time. G10 supports are also pretty durable making handling, transportation, and storage trouble-free. G10 Micarta® supports have an insignificant water/moisture absorption rate, meaning there is no structural deterioration in adverse weather, especially in the wake of heavy rain and storms.

G10 Micarta® supports involve fewer steps to manufacture allowing PT&P to support just in time lead times for fast-paced dynamic projects. PT&P has designed, extensively tested, and manufactured on G10 Micarta shoes for over 15 years. G10 is a preferred choice in cryogenic applications and demanding LNG environments for the following reasons:

  • Impervious to water absorption–Water intrusion into the system degrades performance and leads to many problems such as ice formation.
  • Superior Tensile and Flexural strength
  • Low Capital Expenses: Reduced field welding time, material cost, travel time, and field installation cost
  • Construction/Installation Savings: G10 pipe shoes can be sent to the pipe fabricator and welded directly to the pipe spool allowing for no inspection and testing requirements in the field.
  • Easy, trouble-free handling, transportation, and storage
  • Longer installation life and reduced maintenance needs

Cold Shoe Anchors with Micarta Insulation for a LNG Plant

The cold shoes are fabricated from a combination of carbon steel, micarta insulation, and stainless steel. They measure 18″ x 12″ x 10″ and are designed for 7″ of lateral movement with temperatures as low as -162°C. A total of 16 supports were manufactured and PMI tested. This was a rush order completed in just under 12 weeks for a LNG plant.

These cold shoe anchors are designed to support pipe sizes ranging from 8″ to 36″ in diameter. The measurements of the base plate are between 18″ and 36″ in length and between 8″ and 22″ in width. The saddle is fabricated from stainless steel and the base plate is galvanized steel. Micarta insulation material, between the base plate and the saddle, functions to insulate the extremely cold pipeline. These cold shoe anchors are manufactured for large axial and lateral capacities.
