High-Temperature Pre-Insulated Pipe Support for a Chemical Plant

June 2, 2021

Custom High-Temperature Pre-Insulated Pipe Support for a Chemical Plant

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. Q.C. inspections and dimensional tests were performed prior to shipping.

Pipe Shields, Inc., a division of PT&P designed pre-insulated pipe supports for a high-temperature pipeline at a petrochemical plant overseas. This style of insulated support is designed to be compact, easy to install and eliminate the need for field welding. The insulation is 5-1/2″ thick utilizing 18 lb. and 28 lb. pcf high-density calcium silicate. The “hot shoes” are fabricated from carbon steel and hot-dipped galvanized for corrosion protection. They are rated for temperatures from +40°F to +1800°F. Q.C. inspections and dimensional tests were performed before an expedited shipment.

Such insulated supports are used for chilled water, hot water, and steam line applications in industries ranging from pharmaceutical, semiconductor, paper mills, chemical plants, data centers, biofuels, and food processing to name a few. Piping Technology and Products, through its subsidiary, industry leader, and pioneer, Pipe Shields, has supplied to all these markets in the USA and internationally for over 45 years. Most recently, we made a large investment to automate manufacturing in our Houston plant to increase throughput and yield to support our customers’ needs for just-in-time deliveries reducing cash requirements on projects.

High-Temperature Pre-Insulated Pipe Supports Designed for 42" Dia. Pipelines

Pre-Insulated pipe supports were designed for high-temperature service at an oil refinery for a client that specializes in the engineering and design of fired heaters, furnaces, pre-heaters, and heat recovery systems. These high-temperature pipe supports were fabricated from carbon steel and designed for pipe sizes ranging in 36” – 42” diameter and are not only used for new construction but also upgrades and revamps. The “hot shoes” were designed with the addition of “Spring Washers” (not shown here) to maintain consistent clamping force when the pipe expands and contracts. The insulation is 3″ thick and comprised of High-density Calcium Silicate (asbestos-free) structural inserts treated with water repellant. Standard quality tests were performed before shipment. Our hot shoes are used extensively in Refineries, Styrene Plants, Hydrogen Plants, LNG Facilities, Semiconductor Fabrication Facilities, and General Building Construction.
