The stands were completed with a hot-dipped galvanize finish. They were also designed with a neoprene lining in the saddle to prevent metal to metal contact in the field. The function of the pipe stand is to allow for adjustment of the support after expansion or contraction of the pipeline. The simplicity of the design allows for easy installation and maintenance of the support.

Adjustable Pipe Stands to Support Ductile Iron Pipe
May 2, 2007
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and fabricated adjustable pipe stands to support ductile iron pipe. Due to ductile iron pipes having non-standard diameters, each of the supports were custom fabricated per the customers’ requirements regarding pipe diameter and elevation. All the supports were fabricated from carbon steel with an HDG finish and designed to provide nine inches (+/- 4.50″) of adjustment and each support has an 11″ x 11″ base plate.
(Left) Cradle type supports are designed with an installed height of 84″ from the base to the bottom of pipe (BOP).
(Middle) Flange type supports are designed with an installed height of 81-1/4″ from the base to the BOP.
(Right) Tee type supports are designed for an installed height of 77″ from base to BOP.
They will be used on horizontal piping and will be attached at their base to pre-case concrete pedestals. Each base plate has been pre-drilled to accept anchor bolts provided at the site. The pipe stand’s threaded adjustment column will allow field personnel to adjust the height of each support. They can also accurately place the pipe at the required elevation without using shims or modifying the concrete pedestal.

PT&P Aids in the Construction of an Oil Refinery
June 13, 2003
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. has designed and manufactured over 177 tons of supports for the Chad/Cameroon Development Project in Chad, Africa. Adjustable Base Supports designed to support pipe size ranging from 3 to 18″ in diameter were one type of the many supports fabricated for this project.
Each of the hot-dipped galvanized pipe stands has an 8″x8″ base plate and a midrange height of 12″. The pipe stands allow for a maximum travel of +/- 3″. These supports provide for easy adjustment in the field when supporting pipe trunnions on concrete pads or foundations. In addition, these pipe stands have a major advantage when the exact installation heights are not known at the remote job site.
Other supports including constants and variables spring hangers, rigid rod hangers, structural steel, FRP pads, and pre-insulated pipe supports were also manufactured in a range of different specifications and materials.

Pipe Shoes and Stand Assemblies for a Cross-Generating Station
March 7, 2003
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. recently designed and manufactured 46 of these support assemblies for a cross-generating power station in South Carolina. These pipe shoes and assemblies are composed of carbon steel and accommodate pipe with diameters ranging in size from 18”-32”. All of these components are strong enough to support maximum installed loads of 8,000 lbs.

The Compact Spring Support Webinar will cover key objectives, background, and leading industry problems related to process equipment nozzles (both rotating and non-rotating equipment). First, we will review the challenges involved in the design and analysis of piping with respect to process equipment nozzles. Secondly, we will discuss the types of chronic problems and failures related to process equipment nozzles and present (or introduce) the Compact Spring Support as a solution. During our discussion, we will explain why chronic problems with process equipment exist, describing current design practices as they relate to industry code standards and how the Compact Spring Support addresses these problems directly and effectively. And finally, we will take a quick look at the technical data and sizing program.
