   rigid sway struts RIGID SWAY STRUT ASSEMBLIES
AAA Technology inventories a stock of components for use in both the welded and the adjustable rigid sway strut units. Upon receipt of your requirements and order, we will assemble the necessary components and ship the rigid sway strut units you require.
   sway brace assembly
Sway Brace Assemblies AAA Technology manufactures a standard line of sway brace assemblies capable of handling loads up to 7,200 lbs. and pipe diameters up to 42”.  AAA Technology maintains an inventory of components and can produce finished assemblies quickly.  Sway Brace Assemblies can be designed and manufactured for non-standard loads, movements and pipe diameters.  Sway Brace Assemblies can be provided with Bracket End Connections and/or special 3 Bolt Pipe Clamps and are available in the following finishes: Carbon Steel – black, painted and hot dip galvanized or Stainless Steel – plain
   hydraulic snubber Snubbers
For absorbing thrust associated with the release of blow off valves which may cause immediate or accumulative damage to piping or equipment.  For use with piping subjected to shock, sway or vibration caused by earthquake, water hammer, or other transient forces.
   vibration control clamp
VIBRATION CONTROL RESTRAINTS FOR PIPELINES AND BOTTLES
Field proven and tested in years of numerous applications worldwide and can be designed to accommodate both Dynamic and Thermal flexibility requirements for temperature -65F (18C) to 350F (177C).  Mechanical clamp stiffness's and bolt torque recommendations are available for each design to aid in installation.
slide plates TRI*SLIDE™ LOW FRICTION SLIDE PLATES
The TRI*SLIDE™ low friction pipe supports are a family of pipe slide plate assemblies and pipe shoes offering a wide range of designs and attachment configurations from which to select. For hot piping systems, AAA Technology offers designs from the standard T-bar shoe to several reinforced shoe designs for welding to the pipe. For hot piping systems where welding to the pipe is not permitted, we offer several designs of u-bolted and clamped shoes. Several designs for welded and bolted guide units are also available. Variations of these designs, excluding the designs calling for welding to the pipe, are also offered for low temperature and cryogenic applications. TRI*SLIDE™ low friction pipe supports incorporate two mating bearing surfaces between the pipe and the support structure thereby permitting piping movements parallel to the bearing surfaces while offering relatively low resistance to movements. TRI*SLIDE™ units may be ordered with your choice of the following bearing surfaces: high quality graphite plates or industrial quality glass filled PTFE bonded to steel plates.

insulated polyurethane pipe saddles TRI*FOAM™ MOLDED RIGID POLYURETHANE PIPE SADDLES AND SUPPORTS
The TRI*FOAM™ molded rigid polyurethane pipe saddles and supports are a family of pipe support and restraint units especially designed for low temperature and cryogenic service.  A wide variety of designs are offered from the 60 degree wedge to the 180 degree saddle, and further to the 360 degree full encirclement unit.  We also offer layered units for extreme service conditions.  TRI*FOAM™ saddles are molded high quality, high density polyurethane units with a low “K” factor (thermal conductivity). When the units are subjected to temperatures in the range of -425 degrees F to plus 200 degrees F, TRI*FOAM™’s physical characteristics, including compressive strength, will not be significantly affected. AAA Technology’s TRI*FOAM™ molded rigid polyurethane pipe saddles and supports are available with vapor barriers and/or steel shields as well as in combination with the TRI*SLIDE™ low friction pipe supports. Specially designed and manufactured units are also available upon request.
insulated polyurethane pipe supports TRI*CAL™ rigid Calcium silicate pipe saddles and supports are a family of pipe support and restraint units similar to the TRI*FOAM™ except they are designed for high temperature service.  TRI*CAL™ is offered with the same options as the TRI*FOAM™.  TRI*CAL™ is designed for line temperature service that ranges from -10 degrees F, to plus 1200 degrees F without affecting the physical characteristics including the compressive strength. 
Specially designed and manufactured units are also available upon request.
wear pads TRI*WEAR™ Pads are pipe protective coverings used to prevent corrosion and electrical conductivity between the pipe and the pipe support.  They also prevent metal to metal abrasion & dampen vibrations.  TRI•WEAR™ acts as a second skin reinforcing the contact surface. These pads are seal bonded to the pipe in order to prevent moisture collection behind the wear pads. Bonded TRI•WEAR pads provide up to 45,000 psi compressive strength and work from -60⁰F to 500⁰F. They are available in pipe sizes from ¾” to 36”. 
Specially designed and manufactured units are also available upon request.
composite pipe supports TRI*COMPOSITE™ Pipe Shoes - These shoes are easy to install and greatly reduce the “Installed Cost” per shoe.  They can be epoxied to the pipe or banded as shown.  Made from high density polyurethane foam cores (cut by numerical control equipment) with a toughened FRP outer shell, the shoe has enhanced thermal insulating properties while preventing electrical conductivity and corrosion and can be used for pipes from -350°F up to 225°F.  Our TRI•COMPOSITE Pipe Supports are available in light and heavy duty, strapped or bonded in pipe diameters of ¾” to 36”.
Specially designed and manufactured units are also available upon request.

Corrosion Protection Products
Brochure Download

AAA Technology & Specialties Co., Inc. has the pleasure of introducing a line of Corrosion Protection Products that is specially designed to protect your pipe in severe environmental and marine conditions. Some of the following benefits are achieved:

  • Stops induced electrical currents
  • Eliminates localized galvanic corrosion
  • Keeps humidity away from supports
  • Provide a second skin of protection
  • Variety of clamps, hangers and supports
  • Products for cryogenic applications
  • Products for restraint or slide bearing.

When used in marine conditions, exposure to salt water or spray makes this kind of protection critical, because salt acts as an electrolyte to accelerate corrosion. So this added protection is an insurance for continued service in these conditions or where there is excessive humidity. Our conventional FRP products operate from -60°F to 500°F, but our toughened epoxies can go as low as from -350°F .

Please call us or email info@aaatech.com for further information.
