DYNAMIC RESTRAINTS

DYNAMIC RESTRAINTS
CPA’s pipe support offering includes dynamic restraints (hydraulic snubbers and rigid struts) as well as connecting stiff clamps.
These photos show feature CPA’s hydraulic snubbers. Our largest snubbers possess a load carrying capacity of up to 1000 Kn.
Under the normal operating conditions of a piping system, hydraulic snubbers accommodate the required displacement of the piping. However, during a dynamic event (such as an earthquake, rapid valve closure, two phase flow or relief valve discharge) the snubbers lock the piping system in place thus protecting it from excessive deflections /stresses.
The CPA hydraulic snubber incorporates a ‘through rod’ design. This provides the following benefits over competitor products:
✅ No need for an external reservoir – the hydraulic fluid volume does not change, as a result of the existence of the piston rod on either side of the piston.
✅ Strong design – the piston rod is supported at both ends to avoid ‘knuckling’ and subsequent wear on the bearings.
✅ Small diameter – efficient design and no external reservoir results in a compact product.
✅ Enables the snubber to be installed in any orientation.

✅ Results in robust product with strong and reliable performance.

PRE-INSULATED SUPPORTS FOR HOT PIPING – ‘HOT SHOES’

C&P has designed and manufactured over 230 pre-insulated supports for hot piping – known as ‘hot shoes’.

The hot shoes are being supplied to a power plant where piping reaches temperatures of over 500c. Read more

PIPE SUPPORTS FOR DUAL TEMPERATURE PIPING

C&P is supplying over 350 pre-insulated pipe supports to an Ethylene Plant. These supports are subject to dual temperatures (low and high) and are therefore insulated with Foamglass material. As well as an effective insulating material at dual temperatures, Foamglass also has good load bearing properties and is fire retardant.

C&P DESIGNED AND SUPPLIED OVER 2,000 CRYOGENIC SUPPORTS FOR AN LNG TERMINAL

Did You Know?

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is produced from a cryogenic process, in which natural gas is filtered and cooled to -162ºC, reducing its volume by up to 600 times. With this process, it is possible to transform the gas into liquid, making it easier to store and transport. C&P is proud to have supplied over 2,000 cryogenic supports (or ‘cold shoes’) to an LNG terminal. Read more

CRYOGENIC PIPE SUPPORTS (ANCHOR TYPE) FOR LNG REGAS PROJECT

C&P is an industry leader in the supply of pipe support solutions worldwide.

In this case study, C&P supplied over 100 cryogenic pipe support anchors (or ‘cold shoes’) for an LNG Import, Storage and Regasification Project which were specially designed due to very high loads acting on the piping.
