Houston, Texas, May 20, 2002 -- Piping Technology & Products Inc. designed and fabricated several pipe shoes with loads up to 75,000 lbs. respectively, for a 750MW power plant in Alabama.
The shoes are to support the cooling towers' circulatory water system at the power plant. The majority of the shoes were designed for a 60" line and 50,000 lb. load, and the remaining few were designed for a 78" line and 75,000 lbs. of load.
After extensive engineering hours and structure analysis, PT&P's engineering department was able to produce a detailed design and 3-D model for the supports that would allow them to run electronic interface checks.
