Custom Sway Braces with Ball Joints for a Refinery

28 sway braces were custom designed from a combination of carbon steel and A-5160 spring steel. Custom design and fabrication was required due to the design loads and movements exceeding the largest standard sway brace assembly. The application required ball joint ends because the angle of incline exceeded the maximum five degree angle. The largest of the sway braces was designed for an operating load of 10,000 lb. with a travel range of 5″ in either compression or extension. Each sway brace was load and travel tested prior to shipping to ensure functionality throughout the entire travel range.
