Pre-engineered modular pipe racks are structures designed and built specifically to support multiple pipes where adequate structure is not available. They are mainly used to run petroleum or natural gas pipelines, or cable trays over a river, gorge, highway, or other obstacles. A pre-engineered modular pipe rack is the main artery of a process unit. While the majority of pre-engineered modular pipe racks carry utility piping, some may also include instrument and cable trays. In rarer instances, a pre-engineered modular pipe rack may carry mounted equipment as well.
Pre-engineered modular pipe racks are used to support pipes, power cables, or instrument cable trays in petrochemical, chemical, or power plants. In some instances, pre-engineered modular pipe racks will be used to support mechanical equipment, vessels, and valve access platforms. Pre-engineered modular pipe racks are not used to store lengths of pipe. Rather, pre-engineered modular pipe racks are used to transfer viscous material between equipment and storage or utility areas.
A pre-engineered modular pipe rack can be designed to carry a variety of liquid materials such as crude oil, condensate, liquid natural gas and other energy products and byproducts. From industrial and energy applications, to healthcare and data centers, a pre-engineered modular pipe rack can be used anywhere you need to transport any type of liquid.
Because they are used for industrial applications, a pre-engineered modular pipe rack needs to be heavy duty and easy to maintain. Galvanized steel is the most popular choice for pre-engineered modular pipe racks because it is strong and relatively lightweight.
A pre-engineered modular pipe rack consists of a series of transverse bents that run along the length of the pipe system. These pipe supports are spaced at uniform intervals of around 20 feet. A pre-engineered modular pipe rack generally does not have maintenance access on the actual pipe rack like a utility bridge does. To allow maintenance access under the pre-engineered modular pipe rack, the transverse bents are typically moment frames. Transverse bents are typically connected with longitudinal struts.
You could design and engineer a modular steel pipe rack for every unique application, however, Bridge Brothers has the capacity to take that work off of your hands. We have a standard kit-of-parts for modular steel pipe racks. Let us know the number of racks you need, the dimensions of the pipes, and what you will be transporting, and we will provide you with drawings and calculations. Pre-engineered modular pipe racks should be easy to design, build, and manufacture. Bridge Brothers makes it possible.
Bridge Brothers specializes in pre-engineered modular pipe racks. With our prefabricated modular system, we can engineer, design, fabricate, and install a pre-engineered modular pipe rack in less than six weeks. Our pipe rack modules are pre-engineered for a variety of load variables. Therefore, we can eliminate the weeks of engineering time it would normally take to design a custom pipe rack.
Bridge Brothers now offers a tool for designing your pre-engineered modular pipe racks. You give us the dimensions, the number of racks you need, and other load information, and we provide the calculations, drawings and specifications. Our company handles the fabrication and installation of the pre-engineered modular pipe rack.
Pre-engineered modular pipe racks enable fast, efficient construction of multiple types of pipe racks in a variety of industries. Bridge Brothers offers a one rack, two rack, and three rack model. These pre-engineered modular pipe racks are all precision-manufactured in a shop to ensure the highest quality. Prefabrication of pre-engineered modular pipe racks is preferable to on site fabrication.
Once your firm has decided you need a pre-engineered modular pipe rack, Bridge Brothers knows you need the pipe rack delivered and installed quickly. Using our pre-engineered modular pipe rack design tool can save time and money on your next pre-engineered modular pipe rack project.
Modular steel pipe racks need to be designed, built, and installed in a minimal time frame. Because we already have the calculations worked out for a variety of configurations of pre-engineered modular pipe racks, Bridge Brothers can help you eliminating costly engineering time spent on designing and specifying the pipe rack needed for the project. Because we have experience installing pipe racks in remote locations, we can also have the pre-engineered modular pipe rack installed quickly. When working for Shell, Bridge Brothers was able to deliver and install a finished product in under four weeks.
Constructed from steel or aluminum, our prefabricated pre-engineered modular pipe racks have several advantages, including low cost, high quality fabrication, and quick and low-impact installation. Bridge Brothers has designed, manufactured, and installed a variety of pre-engineered modular pipe racks for a variety of applications. Bridge Brothers knows you need this pipe rack delivered fast, therefore our company has processes in place move your pre-engineered modular pipe rack through the design, engineering, manufacturing and installation phases quickly. Bridge Brothers offers turn-key prefabricated pre-engineered modular pipe racks that are strong and will last.
Because pre-engineered modular pipe racks are often installed in active work zones or in areas with complicated site conditions, installation can be tricky. Bridge Brothers has experience in pre-engineered modular pipe rack installation. We will prepare the site conditions for the bridge, design the pre-engineered modular pipe rack structure so that it is light weight and easy to assemble on site, and then install it. If the pre-engineered modular pipe rack is located on an existing utility or manufacturing site, we will work around any constraints or work schedules.
There are a large number of variables involved in designing pre-engineered modular pipe racks for new or existing sites. Bridge Brothers has experience with designing, engineering and installing pre-engineered modular pipe racks in a variety of locations. We can help you make the decision on what pre-engineered modular pipe rack configuration will work best for your site based on cost, style and environmental compatibility.
