Trunnions with Micarta ® G-10 Designed for a Cryogenic Pipeline at an LNG Facility

Trunnions Designed for a Cryogenic Pipeline at an LNG Facility

Type: Trunnions for Cryogenic Temperatures
Size: 8″-24″ Dia. | 12″-18″ L | 6″-15″ W | 6″-40″ H
Material: Micarta® G-10 Insulation | CS | SS
Design: Cryogenic Temperatures of -320°F
Testing: MTR’s | Non Destriuctive (PMI) | Q.C.

PT&P custom designed trunnions for a cryogenic pipeline at an LNG facility in Australia. The insulated supports were fabricated with carbon steel base plates, 304L stainless steel plates and fasteners. To prevent cryogenic temperatures of -320°F from transferring to the base of the trunnion support, Micarta® G-10 was used as insulator. The trunnions were designed to support pipe sizes from 8”-24” with dimensions ranging from 12”-18” in length, 6”-15” in width and 6”-40” in height. MTR’s were provided, and non-destructive testing (PMI) was preformed, along with standard Q.C. inspection prior to shipment.

This type of support is available in pipe sizes between 1/2″ to 42″ NPS; however, PT&P can customize any size needed. The standard material for these supports are galvanized or hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel. These supports were customized with Micarta® instead of the standard high density polyurethane with vapor barrier. When ordering, specify pipe size, insulation thickness and length. See more on Figure CS-6030 from our cryogenic pipe supports section.

Piping Technology & Products and Pipe Shields have been a major international supplier of pipe shoes and pre-insulated supports for more than 10 years. Our cryogenic pipe supports comply with the following standards ANSI / ASME B31.1 & B31.3 and The Manufacturers Standardization Society SP-58, 69, & 89.

Take a Look into the Past: Insulated Pipe Supports

December 17, 2010

Check out our most recent article that looks at the history of insulated pipe supports through the past 100 years.  Learn about the developments made in the 1950’s and 1960’s that introduced the use of “Foam Glass”, a lightweight material that is manufactured primarily from recycled glass and used in the design of insulated pipe supports. Later, polyurethane was developed to provide greater load carrying capabilities. Read the full article on the:

Base Insulated Supports
Base Insulated Supports

PT&P fabricated base insulated supports used to minimize thermal conductivity between the base and un-insulated lines. The support is designed with a carbon steel bottom and a stainless steel upper for cryogenic temperatures of -300°F. The insulation is made of 20 PCF polyurethane block. These supports are designed to handle lateral and axial pipe loads. They also include a wear pad for extra pipe reinforcement, which prevents local deformation of the pipe.

Single Cold Shoe

These cold shoes are made of polyurethane for cryogenic pipe lines at a liquid nitrogen gas plant. They measure between 8” to 16” in diameter, 30” long with 4” of insulation. These cold shoes provide insulation in the support area where the regular pipe insulation (foam glass) is not sufficient to support the load.

These cold shoes are used for anchoring pipelines against movement caused by thermal expansion and by fluid flow in the pipe. The total weight of the 10 cold shoes is 8,336 lbs. They have 4 1/2″ of insulation and are made to fit a 12″ pipe. Their length varies between 18″ to 24″ for 6″ to 12″ of axial movement. The cold shoe is made of polyurethane insulation and A36 carbon steel. They are drop-in-place anchors that only need to be welded into the pipe run and fastened to the pipe rack. They were manufactured to specific design loads and movements for an LNG plant in Georgia.

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. manufactured cryogenic pipe anchors for gas refinery in Savannah, Georgia. The pipe anchors were fabricated with stainless steel and insulated with polyurethane foam. In order to prevent cold pumping, better known as temperature driven moisture penetration, polyurethane foam was poured around a stainless steel reinforcing pad. The ten cryogenic pipe anchors were fabricated to support 4-inch, 8-inch and 12-inch pipes. PT&P’s pre-insulated pipe supports department is devoted to the production of pipe insulation productions for both hot and cold applications.
