PT&P manufactured 48″ diameter pre-insulated pipe supports for a high-temperature pipeline at a phenol plant in Texas. Phenol is an important aromatic organic compound used in several products like plastics, nylon, epoxies, detergents, mouthwash, antiseptics, and other pharmaceutical drugs. PT&P has consistently supplied products to these types of plants for many years and has done work for most of the largest phenol plants in the world. The production of phenol from petroleum-derived feedstocks can involve temperatures, where large bore piping can reach 250°F. Phenols are used in a diverse range of end markets including construction, automotive, electronics, and fibre industries. Some other plants that utilize large bore piping at high temperatures, are Biofuels, Semiconductor, and Old Sands Extraction processing plants. These hot shoes, in particular, are designed for pipe sizes up to 48″ in diameter. They include 6″ thick by 4″ width calcium silicate insulation, hot-dipped galvanized steel, and are designed for a load of 7,000 lb. Standard quality tests were performed before shipment. At Piping Technology and Products, we can supply a wide range of different types of pipe supports to meet your design specifications. This enables our clients to order from one vendor as opposed to several different vendors to manage the supply chain for project success in the most cost-effective manner while keeping deliveries on time. This order consisted of six different types of supports such as variable assemblies, constant support assemblies, sway struts, and pre-insulated pipe supports along with associated “off the shelf” hardware items. We have served the piping industry for over 45 years providing a unique array of engineering and manufacturing experience to an ever-changing industry.
This custom-designed insulated pipe support will be used for a high-temperature pipeline at a chemical plant in Canada. This hot shoe was customized without the u-base and modified with an extended length. It will be used to prevent the movement of a 6″ diameter pipe in the axial direction. Axial stops will be welded to the clamp O.D. in the field. The plates are 11-5/8″ O.D. x 48″ in length and fabricated from A36 carbon steel. The insulation is 2″ thick high-density calcium silicate and well-suited for temperatures up to 1200°F. Q.C. inspections and dimensional tests were performed prior to shipping.
PT&P manufactured cryogenic pipe saddles for LNG transportation pipelines. These types of insulated supports have been utilized in LNG plants around the world. Insulated supports are also used on cold piping in semiconductor plants or plants that make batteries to eliminate condensation. This particular type of insulated pipe saddle assembly was fabricated with a carbon steel base plate, 304L stainless steel saddle, and an insulation block. The overall size ranges from 25” x 19” x 12-¾” to 29” x 25” x 13-3/8” and designed to isolate the pipe temperature from below the structure. These pipe shoes were manufactured to support pipe sizes ranging in diameter from 36″ to 42″ NPS.
Pre-Insulated pipe supports were designed for high-temperature service at an oil refinery for a client that specializes in the engineering and design of fired heaters, furnaces, pre-heaters, and heat recovery systems. These high-temperature pipe supports were fabricated from carbon steel and designed for pipe sizes ranging in 36” – 42” diameter and are not only used for new construction but also upgrades and revamps. The “hot shoes” were designed with the addition of “Spring Washers” (not shown here) to maintain consistent clamping force when the pipe expands and contracts. The insulation is 3″ thick and comprised of High-density Calcium Silicate (asbestos-free) structural inserts treated with water repellant. Standard quality tests were performed before shipment. Our hot shoes are used extensively in Refineries, Styrene Plants, Hydrogen Plants, LNG Facilities, Semiconductor Fabrication Facilities, and General Building Construction.

Pipe Shields/PT&P designed and manufactured pre-insulated pipe shoes for a 54″ diameter pipeline in a chemical processing plant in Texas. The hot shoes are custom designed with a wide base to accommodate lateral movement and axial movements of +/- 4 1/2″. We designed the hot shoes to include additional bolting along with bolting torque recommendations order to help prevent slippage of the pipe inside the pipe shoe. We designed the supports to accommodate vertical loads up to 22,200 lb. and temperatures up to 1800°F. The outer part of the shoe was manufactured of hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel while the inner insulation material is 4″ thick high density calcium silicate insulation.
