An assortment of standard variable spring supports were manufactured ranging in size from 8-5/8″ to 12-3/4″ dia. with installed heights ranging from 9-7/16″ to 18-1/8″. The F-Type pipe hanger assembly is used to support the pipe from below and are typically mounted to concrete pads via anchor bolts or welded to structural steel. The various springs shown are designed for operating conditions ranging from loads of 1750 lb. with .02″ travel to 21,280 lb. loads with .13″ travel. As with all of our variable supports, these were quality checked with a 100% spring coil deflection test and a load cell calibration to set the assembly at the prescribed installed load.
Check out our most recent article that looks at the history of insulated pipe supports through the past 100 years. Learn about the developments made in the 1950′s and 1960′s that introduced the use of “Foam Glass”, a lightweight material that is manufactured primarily from recycled glass and used in the design of insulated pipe supports. Later, polyurethane was developed to provide greater load carrying capabilities. Read the full article on the:
Over 30 cryogenic supports fabricated from a combination of carblon steel, permali block and stainless steel were manufactured for an LNG plant in Abu Dhabi. The shoes measures 18″ x 14″ x 12″ and are designed for 10″ of thermal movement and temperatures as low as -167°C. The cold shoes are coated with a custom paint job and went through standard testing prior to shipment.
We recently posted a new Snubber article on our website. It provides a technical look into both hydraulic and mechanical snubbers – how they are used in a piping system and how they function. Most importantly, the article tells you the difference between various types of snubbers which is helpful in choosing the appropriate snubber for your piping system needs.
Ever wonder what makes a constant spring support different from a variable spring support? How does each one function? How do they support loads and allow for movement in a pipeline? Check out our new spring support article that provides all the answers to these questions and more.
