Slide Plate Assemblies with Marinite® Insulation and Vibration Pads
Slide Plate Assemblies with Marinite® Insulation and Vibration Pads

The slide plate assemblies were fabricated from a combination of stainless steel for the low-friction sliding surface and 2-3/4″ Marinite® insulation to isolate the higher temperatures. A fabric reinforced isolator pad was placed between the slide plate and the I-beam for vibration control. The slide plates were tested for both load and heat transfer and will be utilized in a chemical plant.
