Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and manufactured pre-insulated pipe supports for a high-temperature pipeline for a gold mine. Our subsidiary, Pipe Shields, created this category and family of products.
The “hot shoes” are 16″ in diameter, including 4″ of insulation, and are 18″ in length. They are fabricated from A240 Gr 304 L stainless steel and high-density calcium silicate insulation. The insulation material is noncombustible and can be supplied in varying densities to accommodate different loading applications. This type of insulated support is also utilized in lithium battery plants, automotive manufacturing, data centers, semiconductor manufacturing facilities, sports stadiums, hospitals, and other facilities where there are high-temperature pipelines. In many cases, these lines are for chilled water, hot water, and HVAC systems. These hot shoes are custom designed to support loads from 25,000 lb. to 50,000 lb. at an operating temperature of 1,400°F. Standard tests were performed for a three-week rush job.
For this particular project, we provided a larger scope of material in addition to the pre-insulated supports shown here. We worked with the pipe module fabricator and the EPC for the same project. The scope of material and services included engineering services, insulated supports, pipe hanger hardware, clamps, rods, guides, anchors, structural bolts, nuts, and washers. The project dates back to 2010; however, this mine has last year undergone a plant expansion and mine life extension project designed to increase throughput and allow the operation to maintain a minimum annual gold production of approximately 800,000oz until 2040.
We regularly support customers for the life of their facilities, sometimes over 40 years. We see every customer relationship as long-term and strategic so we can be part of their continued success.
