Big Ton Springs with a Custom 3-Coat Paint System

PT&P fabricated big ton spring supports for an expedited delivery of six weeks from conceptual design to final delivery. The big tons measure 26″ long x 26″ deep x 34-5/8″ tall and will be used to support substantial vertical loads while simultaneously providing a base support structure. They are designed for operating loads of 36,000 lb. with a travel of .5625″ down.

Due to the harsh and corrosive environment, the exposed metal surfaces were finished with a three-coat urethane paint while the threaded components were cadmium plated with a blue Fluorocarbon coating. The big tons were also salt water spray tested according to ASTM B117 standards, and load tested to verify the springs’ functionality throughout the entire travel range.

F-Type Variable Springs with Slide Plates

F-Type Variable Springs with Slide Plates

PT&P fabricated variable springs from hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel components and a neoprene coated spring steel coil. P.T.F.E. slide plates are welded to the load flange to reduce frictional forces generated during lateral movement of the supported pipe. Internal guides are also installed to help maintain vertical alignment of all moving components throughout the anticipated thermal deflection cycle. The installed (cold) load is set to 10,413 lb. With a design travel of 0.720” up, the final operating (hot) load will be 8,974 lb. Each spring is equipped with travel stops and went through load testing prior to shipping.
