CryoTek Pipe Shoe

APP’s CryoTek Pipe Shoe is a composite pipe support solution for extreme temperature conditions.

APP’s CryoTek Pipe Shoe is a cutting edge, non-metallic pipe support solution for extreme temperature conditions. It is ideal for cryogenic piping systems that involve gas liquefaction, LNG terminals/carriers, ethylene plants or any cryogenic process piping. Although our CryoTek Pipe Shoe was originally developed for use in cryogenic conditions, the shoe also offers unparalleled performance in temperatures up to +400°F. The CryoTek Pipe Shoe is the premier solution for elevated piping systems.

Benefits
  • Composite VEFR technology does not promote temperature transfer, preventing ice formation and fluctuation in system temperature.
  • Eliminates steel shoe multi-layer insulation requirement, which can delaminate over time.
  • Resin system is UV resistant, does not support heat combustion and can be combined with an intumescent coating to resist temperatures of 2,000°F for up to two hours.
  • Installation takes a fraction of the time of traditional pre-insulated metallic supports.
  • Lightweight. Can be installed and/or transported without the use of heavy-lift equipment.
  • Safely encapsulates the fragile insulation used in cryogenic piping systems, preventing costly repairs.
