Kinder Morgan’s petroleum condensate processing facility was designed to consist of two units, each equipped to split condensate into its various components, including light and heavy naphtha, gas oil, kerosene, and diesel. It was also designed with further expansion in mind, depending on market interest. The larger pipes (and pipe shoes) required for this project were new ground for Kinder Morgan — they knew they wanted to avoid metallic pipe shoes since shipping and installation times were a major concern. APP worked with them to identify the composite pipe shoes that would handle the heat and pressure the refinery pipes would contain, and met the three-month project deadline.
APP took on a consultant role for this project — Kinder Morgan was familiar with APP products as used in transport projects, but were looking for processing plant solutions. APP helped define the sizes and specs for the CryoTek and ProTek Pipe Shoes that would provide a nonmetallic solution for the entire project.
