Corrosion Protection Pipe Supports

AAA TECHNOLOGY’S COMPLETE LINE OF CORROSION PROTECTION PIPE SUPPORT PRODUCTS

INCLUDING TRI-BOLT™ U-BOLTS with TRI-COAT™, TRI-CLIP™ Isolators, TRI-WEAR™FRP WearPads and Elastomeric Bearings, and TRI-COMPOSITE™ Pipe Shoes. Corrosion between pipe supports and pipe at metal to metal contact points is a common problem in the process and offshore industries. AAA Technology provides a comprehensive line of corrosion protection pipe supports to counter this problem

TRI-BOLT™ U-Bolts for Service in Corrosive Environments

When it is necessary to limit lateral movement of a pipe, TRI-BOLT™ is the right selection for loads that are not excessive. For higher lateral load capacities, pairs of TRI-BOLT™ units may be utilized or contact AAA Technology for Hold Down Clamps or Guide Clamps. The corrosion protection pipe support TRI-COAT™ protective layer prevents electrical conductivity between the pipe and the u-bolt member. TRI-COAT™ is UV resistant which translates to longer product life.

TRI-BOLT™ can be used at operating temperatures up to 230°F (110°C) and can be provided in carbon steel with a HDG finish, if desired. U-bolts can also be provided in 304 SS or 316 SS. For high temperature applications up to 392°F (200°C), the TRI-COAT-HT™ protective layer will provide the desired thermal and electrical isolation between the pipe and the TRI-BOLT™ member.

TRI-GUARD™ Corrosion Protection Supports

TRI-GUARD™ thermoplastic bars are corrosion protection pipe supports that are to be placed under pipe at support locations to eliminate metal to metal contact and the resultant corrosion. With TRI-GUARD™, water drains away from the pipe and the TRI-GUARD™ contact point due to the TRI-GUARD™ shape and no longer pools on the bottom side of the pipe. TRI-GUARD™ also prevents electrical conductivity between the pipe and the support member.

TRI-CLIP™ Isolaters Isolate Pipe from Clamps, Cradles & Saddles

As previously stated, corrosion between pipe supports and pipe commonly occurs at metal to metal contact points in the process and offshore industries. TRI-CLIP™ Isolators, corrosion protection pipe supports made of thermoplastic bars just like the TRI-GUARD™ bars, clip on pipe clamps, cradles and saddles to prevent metal to metal contact between the pipe and the pipe clamp, cradle or saddle.

TRI-CLIP™ Isolators are bonded to the pipe clamp, cradle or saddle member with 2 sided tape. AAA Technology supplies the TRI-CLIP™ isolators along with the pipe clamps, cradles and saddles already bonded to the steel members. Alternatively, the TRI-CLIP™ Isolators can be supplied in bags tied to each pipe clamp, cradle or saddle for field installation at a later time.

With TRI-CLIP™ Isolator bars like with the TRI-GUARD™ bars, water drains away from the pipe and the TRI-CLIP™ contact point due to the TRI-CLIP™ cylindrical shape. Moisture will no longer collect at contact points between the pipe and the support. TRI-CLIP™ Isolators also prevent electrical conductivity between the pipe and the pipe support member.

TRI•CLIP™ Isolators can be used at operating temperatures up to 180°F (82°C) and on clamps, cradles and saddles for virtually all pipe and duct diameters. TRI-CLIP™ Isolators are also available UV resistant material which translates to longer product life. For higher temperature applications, TRI-CLIP™ Isolators are available in the following options:

  • Amber —TRI-GUARD-AM™ for temperatures to 340 ⁰F
  • PEEK— TRI-GUARD-PE™ for temperatures to 482 ⁰F

TRI-WEAR™ Corrosion Resistant FRP Wear Pads and Elastomeric Bearings

TRI*WEAR™ Wear Pads are our premier pipe protection surface pads for covering sections of pipe that will be subjected to rubbing, vibration or small impact loadings. TRI*WEAR™ acts as a second skin protection reinforcing the contact surface. The wear pads act as insulators and prevent surface induced corrosion by keeping out moisture, preventing electrical current conduction and providing superior chemical resistance.

TRI-GUARD™ Thermoplastic Bars Mounted on a Beam

AAA Technology manufactures TRI-GUARD™ Thermoplastic Bars mounted on support beams for improved installation convenience and efficiency. The support beam can easily be mounted on a concrete pier with anchor bolts and the job is done. AAA Technology will install TRI-GUARD™ Bars on the beam securely and ready for use.

If the design calls for corrosion resistant U-Bolts, then AAA Technology can provide TRI-BOLT™ units as well. For operating temperature limitations, please refer to  AAA Technology’s TRI-GUARD™ brochure. Also see the temperature limitations for TRI-BOLT™ units.

AAA Technology also manufactures Hold Down Clamps and Guide Clamps mounted on support beams for improved installation convenience and efficiency
