This custom-designed insulated pipe support will be used for a high-temperature pipeline at a chemical plant in Canada. This Hot Shoe was customized without the u-base and modified with an extended length. It will be used to prevent the movement of a 6″ diameter pipe in the axial direction. Axial stops will be welded to the clamp O.D. in the field. The plates are 11-5/8″ O.D. x 48″ in length and fabricated from A36 carbon steel. The insulation is 2″ thick high-density calcium silicate and well-suited for temperatures up to 1200°F. A hot shoe is a pipe support that can be used for high-temperature applications, such as high-pressure steam lines or boiler feed water, where heat loss through the pipe support is not desirable. Insulated Hot Shoes can be designed and used for temperatures up to 1400° Fahrenheit.
