These low-temperature base supports are fabricated from carbon steel with a hot dipped galvanize finish and range from 23″ to 37″ in height. The supports are 18″ in diameter with a base plate of 20″W x 20″L x 1″H and are designed to support pipes ranging in size from 24″ to 30″. The base supports are fabricated with micarta insulation and will be utilized in a LNG plant as a base beneath a cold temperature pipe.
Pipe Shields, Inc., a subsidiary of Piping Technology & Products, Inc., designed these pre-insulated supports for a pipe size of 48″. The clamp and base are fabricated from carbon steel that includes a hot dipped galvanized finish. The 4″ thick insulation is a high density calcium silicate. These guided supports allow for a maximum axial travel of plus or minus 4 1/2″ and have a vertical load rating of 7,100 lb. The operating temperature of the pipe may exceed 1,200ºF, therefore the hot shoes are designed for 1,700ºF. These heavy duty base mounted pipe supports are specially designed to be installed on four emergency diesel exhaust mufflers in a hospital.
