48 Sway Braces for a Refinery Expansion Project

48 Sway Braces for a Refinery Expansion Project

The carbon steel sway braces for this project range in length from 88-3/8″ to 95-3/4″. The largest sway brace has an operating load of 18,000 lb., a design travel of 12″ in either compression or extension, and a spring rate of 1416 lb. per inch. The smallest sway brace has an operating load of 7000 lb., a design travel of 8″ in either compression or extension, and a spring rate of 1000 lb. per inch.

The anticipated loads and movements exceed those of the largest standard PT&P sway brace; therefore, these sway braces required a custom design and fabrication. Each of the 48 sway braces are configured with a unique combination of spring coils, housings, and internal components to accommodate the non-standard loads and movements.

Slide Plate Assemblies with Marinite® Insulation and Vibration Pads

The slide plate assemblies were fabricated from a combination of stainless steel for the low-friction sliding surface and 2-3/4″ Marinite® insulation to isolate the higher temperatures. A fabric reinforced isolator pad was placed between the slide plate and the I-beam for vibration control. The slide plates were tested for both load and heat transfer and will be utilized in a chemical plant.
