A pipe anchor support is a rigid device that completely restricts pipe movement in all three dimensions while bearing the weight, side, and thrust loads. It is designed to prevent essentially all pipe rotation and displacement at the point of application.
Cold Insulated Pipe Anchors with Axial Stops
How do you pre-insulate pipe?
November 2, 2010
At Piping Technology & Products, the term pre-insulated used in the context of pipe supports, refers to the feature of pipe shoes which allows a segment of the insulation to be incorporated into the support. This means that the insulation will be installed into position at the time of the support installation and remain in tact throughout the duration of the pipe support's lifespan.

Refractory Lined Pre-Insulated Supports
June 18, 2008
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and fabricated rotational anchor pre-insulated pipe supports for a fluid processing plant in Kuwait. The supports range in size from 24″ to 34″ in diameter and are capable of withstanding 12,500 lb. of vertical load. The bottom of the hot shoe is fabricated from carbon steel and the top from stainless steel.
These supports include stainless steel inner thrust plates that function as an anchor to prohibit the pipe from rotating within the shoe. These supports are designed for steam super heater lines and provide thermal insulation for the pipe in order to prevent heat loss and condensation.

Hot Shoe for a Refining Company
June 21, 2006
This hot shoe was fabricated from carbon steel, calcium silicate and Firetemp®. Firetemp® is the insulation that carries the load of the pipe. In addition, calcium silicate was also used because it has a lower density, making it a better insulator. This shoe is used as a pipe support and can handle temperatures of up to 1,200F. It measures at 73 in diameter with 5 insulation and weighs 2,391lbs. This hot shoe was expedited in one week per customers request.

Positive Anchor Hot Shoe for Oil Refinery
July 15, 2005
The hot shoes were constructed using high temperature insulation made from calcium silicate, lined with a ceramic fiber blanket in a steel cradle (A36 Carbon Steel). The shoes were designed for 1500 F and a vertical load range between 25,000 lbs and 32,000 lbs, and the BOP was 10″. The overall diameter including 7″ of insulation is 49 7/8″. Belleville washers are used to hold bolt tension in pipeline with high frequency vibration.

Cryogenic Pipe Supports with Micarta® G-10 for an LNG Facility in Australia
April 16, 2018
Cryogenic Pipe Supports
Pipe Size of 1” to 36”
LTCS Material Tops, Stainless Steel, & Micarta® G-10 Insulation
Piping Technology and Products supplied these cryogenic and axial stop cold shoes for an LNG facility in Australia. The cryogenic pipe supports were fabricated with LTCS material tops, stainless steel and Micarta® G-10 insulation blocks. They were a wide range of lengths from pipe size of 1” to 36”. The cryogenic temperatures are low as -50°F. A special paint system was used for the carbon steel components to resist rust. PMI testing was performed on the stainless parts prior to the 4-6 week shipping.
