PT&P designed and fabricated heavy duty insulated pipe support anchors for a high temperature application. The base, clamps, nuts, jackets and bolts are all fabricated from hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel. The hot shoes have 3″ thick high density calcium silicate insulation, and are designed for 12″-42″ diameter pipes. The dimensions are 47″ L X 51″ W X 16″ H. Standard Q.C. and dimensional tests were performed prior to an expedited shipment.
Cryogenic pipe supports, ranging in diameter from 6″ to 38″, were designed to support and insulate piping in an LNG receiving and regassification plant. The “cold shoe anchors” were designed for temperatures down to -260°F and a load range of 26,000 lb. to 210,000 lb. A combination of high density polyurethane foam (PUF) and Permali® was used for the insulation. The center stops that are welded to the process pipe were built from 304 stainless steel, and carbon steel was used for the remainder of the shoe.

Piping Technology and Products, Inc. fabricated 4702 carbon steel shoes for various pipe sizes ranging from 2” to 10”. As per customer request, the shoes are designed to accommodate 30 PSI compressive strength. A three-coat paint system was applied for corrosion protection. All supports were liquid dye-penetrant tested at 5% of welds.
The picture on top shows an anchor fabricated for shipment to an overseas pipeline project. It is a 60″ galvanized frictional anchor of bolted design with section reinforcing rings. The pictures below show two 60” painted pipe shoes which are neoprene lined with gussets and PTFE slide plates and three 48” pipe shoes of similar design.
