Liquid Natural Gas – It is light hydrocarbon gasses that are compressed into a liquid state for cheaper and more efficient transportation.
Piping Technology and Products supplied these cryogenic and axial stop cold shoes for an LNG facility in Australia. A total of 28 assemblies were fabricated with carbon steel, stainless steel and Micarta® G-10 insulation blocks. They were a wide range of lengths from 24″ to 36″, widths from 6 3/4″ to 30″ and heights from 9″ to 10 1/4″. The pipe shoes will support pipes ranging in diameter from 6″ to 48″ NPS in cryogenic temperatures as low as -162°C. A special paint system was used for the carbon steel components to resist rust. PMI testing was performed on the stainless parts prior to shipping.
