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.
