The structural pipe supports are fabricated from carbon steel and coated with red oxide primer. The structural steel will be stored in a warehouse for several months while the power plant is being built. Due to the plant’s location along the United States East Coast, the use of the red oxide primer was selected. Also, modifications were made to our standard “insulation saddles” to allow for a higher load capacity; which can be seen in the foreground of the image above.
All four riser clamps are manufactured from A-36 carbon steel plates and are coated with red oxide primer for rust prevention. They are 22″ in diameter with each plate measuring 2″ thick by 12″ wide by 65″ long. Each riser clamp is capable of supporting loads of up to 38,000 lb. and will be used in a power plant to support “downcomer” lines.
