Four Way Guided Poly Supports for LNG Terminal
Rilco manufactured these polyurethane guided pipe supports for a local LNG project. The insulation was designed according to the thickness and layering of the process line insulation to ensure an optimum field fit. The proper union of the pipe support insulation and line insulation helps to eliminate condensation, and associated field corrosion problems, along with temperature fluctuation of process fluids at the support point. These polyurethane pipe supports are designed for low temperature environments down to -350 degrees F (-212°C).
The polyurethane guide supports for this particular job ranged in size from 2" to 24" in diameter. They are designed for lateral loads ranging from 156 lbs. to 10620 lbs. and vertical loads from 312 lbs. to 21240 lbs. This four way guide includes engineered Belleville washer counts and installation heights to accommodate thermal expansion and contraction of the pipeline.
