Roller cradles are used in pipeline lay down operation. The rollers evenly distribute the pressure on the pipe, avoiding the risk of cracking the welds and preserving the coating.
Roller Cradles are designed to support pipes and pipeline lifting machineries. Each cradle consists of wide range pipe sizes. The unique design permits quick disassembly for transit and storage. Multiple urethane rollers configured to support the pipe evenly and to prevent any damages on the coating.
The use of polyurethane rollers also eliminates the risk of damaging the polyethylene or FBE pipe coating that can occur using regular steel wheel cradles. In addition, high standard ropes are provided with the cradle in order to ensure long lasting life and safe operation at site. The Pipeline Equipments roller cradles can be easily disassembled for fast site repair and maintenance and optimized storage and transport. The Pipeline Equipment roller cradles comply with all applicable standards
FERRETERRO pipe line lifter lowering belts are ideal device for laying of pipe lines whenever high load carrying capacity is required with great supporting area. They are made of polyester lifting mats with two sewn-in eye traverses each and a corresponding traverse with hook.
An economical solution for lowering pipeline where the weight and repetition is low. These belts are wide up to 36” and can be made up to 10 ton capacity of any length required. These belts are strongly bonded and strengthened for lifting. These slings can be polyurethane impregnated or vinyl coated for extra strength and abrasive resistance.
Temporary Pipe Restraint (TPR) system is used on high pressure temporary flowlines. Properly applied, this system will provide an additional level of protection for personnel and physical assets by minimizing the amount of sudden movement in the event of an iron failure. The TPR system comes in two models: Standard and Premium.
TPR system is easier and faster to use and service than competitive restraints. It can be rigged up and down concurrently with pipework rigging, rather than the sequential rigging required by competitive systems. This means if you have a piece of iron that needs to be replaced, you can break the TPR and replace the iron without removing all the TPR. TPR system can be united anywhere along the flowline and quickly re-installed after a leaking connection is addressed. This allows the operator to resume operations faster and negates the need to completely dismantle the system to correct a problem.
The pipes have to be stacked in fixtures/ steel frames so that initial shape is made by the pipes in form of hexagonal bundles. As shown in pictures above single stand or multiple stands near packing/exit area will facilitate the bundling. These frames shall be fabricated considering diameter of pipe and number of pipes in one bundle. For coated pipe the frames should be properly coated /covered by PU Elastomer/ foam/Rubber Sheet or any suitable material to avoid scratches.
Pipe bundling process by DYNAFLEXX
Once pipes have taken their position as a hex shaped bundle, they will be tightened at 5 places by Dynaflex Lashing with minimum 3 ton break capacity which would be more than thrice stronger than conventional steel strap. Lashing is done by a specially provided strainer ratchet.
For coated pipe, buckles will also be coated so that no scratches will be on pipes.
BELOW IS THE PROCESS OF PIPE BUNDLING
We supply one way slings for different usage and capacity range. Common application for these one way slings are lifting, positioning and transportation of various items mainly pipes etc for export cargo. These slings are inserted in the pipe bundles / Loads prior to dispatch at the designated load balance points so that no additional slinging is required while loading in the cargo, thus save the time and efforts. After the load reaches its destination it is unloaded by these one way slings and slings must not & should not be used again instead they should be disposed off. These one way slings can be designed for capacity range few kilos to 5 tons.
Slings are also be designed for 6 - 7 lifting usage for Pre-Slung techniques. Higher capacity Pre-Slung slings are also available as per specific requirements. All these slings are engineered and tested at the point of manufacture and labelled accordingly. These slings are endless types but can be made in eye to eye type also.
