Ball-Joint Sway Strut Assemblies (20,000 lb. load, 96" long)

Ball-Joint Sway Strut Assemblies (20,000 lb. load, 96" long)

The overall length of each sway strut is 96 inches. The pipe hanger assembly is designed to control 20,000 lb. of piping load during the system’s thermal expansion and contraction.

These sway struts have a ball joint located at each end connected by an extension rod that controls the piping system through its complete range of thermal piping movements. It is used to restrain movement of piping in one direction while providing for movement due to thermal expansion or contraction in another direction.

Carbon Steel Limit Stops

Carbon Steel Limit Stops

These limit stops are fabricated from carbon steel with stainless steel inner components. These supports function to prevent excessive stress on the pipe by limiting motion due to earthquakes or other similar events.

They range in size between 20 7/8″ and 22 7/8″ from pin to pin. The load ranges between 12,500 lb. and 21,100 lb. The limit stops are passive restraints that are designed for a maximum thermal expansion of 5″, but can be preset for any specified amount of movement. They will be utilized in an oil refinery overseas.
