Pipeline Rollers

Definition - What does Pipeline Rollers mean?

Pipeline Rollers are the mechanical safety equipment used for supporting crude oil, petroleum products and natural gas intrastate and interstate trunk pipelines. When pipelines are installed, they are kept on these rollers. Apart from supporting the pipelines, these rollers are also a source of installing other electrical instrumentation equipment such as cathodic protection system for pipelines, remote terminal units, PLC’s, and other pipeline protection equipment.

Petropedia explains Pipeline Rollers

Pipeline Rollers are manufactured by large number of manufacturers. There are various types of rollers that are used depending on the size, material to be transported and purpose of the pipelines. Some of the different types of pipeline rollers are:

  • One ton pipeline rollers
    • Load capacity – 2000 lbs
    • Diameter range – 2 to 24 inch
    • Rolling surface - Conical style, urethane cones protect pipe
    • Application - Helps protect exterior of pipe (coatings/yellow jacket) during crossing installations (i.e., river, road, crossings) and reduces drag/pulling forces substantially.
  • Five ton pipeline rollers
    • Load capacity – 10,000 lbs
    • Diameter range – 4 to 48 inch
    • Rolling surface – Dual v-roller style, molded urethane, oversized roller bearings
    • Application - Helps protect exterior of pipe (coatings/yellow jacket) during crossing installations (i.e., river, road, crossings) and reduces drag/pulling forces substantially.
  • Ten ton pipeline rollers
    • Load capacity – 20,000 lbs
    • Diameter range – 10 to 48 inch
    • Rolling surface – Dual v-roller style, molded urethane, oversized roller bearings, optional horizontal roller for small-diameter pipe
    • Application - Helps protect exterior of pipe (coatings/yellow jacket) during crossing installations (i.e., river, road, crossings) and reduces drag/pulling forces substantially.
  • Forty ton adjustable pipeline rollers
    • Load capacity – 80,000 lbs
    • Diameter range – 4 to 72 inches
    • Rolling surface - 8 roller system, molded urethane oversized roller bearings
    • Application - Helps protect exterior of pipe (coatings/yellow jacket) during crossing installations (i.e., river, road, crossings) and reduces drag/pulling forces substantially.
