U-Type Upthrust Constant Supports

These U-type upthrust constant supports are designed to handle 6″ of total travel and loads of 5,677 lb. and 4,956 lb. The load flange is modified to hold six ball transfer units for each support. The ball transfer units are used to decrease the coefficient of friction to 0.05 compared to using the standard PTFE, 25% glass filled, which is 0.15.

Ball Transfer Units

Gussets are added under the load flange to maintain a leveled surface and an equal load transfer to all ball transfer units. These custom designed constant supports are manufactured for steam power plant superheaters.
