Big Ton Spring Supports Custom Designed for a Chemical Plant in Singapore

Type: Big Ton Spring Supports
Material: Carbon Steel/SAE 5160H
Design: 44mm up & Operating Load 130,642 N
Testing: Standard Load & Travel Tests

PT&P custom designed big ton spring supports for a chemical plant in Singapore. These types of supports are used in supporting large heavy units such as compressors, vessels and pumps in power and petrochemical plants. The materials that were used are a carbon steel housing and frame with spring coil- SAE 5160H. The big ton spring support is designed to allow limited movement of 44 mm up with operating load of 130,642 N. By doing this, it’s saving the customer from having to entirely redesign the piping system and saving thousands of dollars. This custom big ton design was shipped in 6 weeks.

Custom Designed Big Ton Spring Supports for a Propane Dehydrogenation Application in Texas

Type: Big Ton Spring Supports
Size: 42″ x 24″ x 26 1/2″
Material: Carbon Steel
Design: 94,261 lb. Load & 0.085” Movement
Testing: Standard Load Tests

PT&P custom designed big ton spring supports for a propane dehydrogenation application at a chemical plant in Texas. The components within this assembly include the spring housing, coils, name plates, pressure plate, and load indicator.
