Variable Spring Supports with Permanent Upward Travel Stops

October 2nd, 2012 Comments off

Five total assemblies of custom designed variable spring supports were made for an oil refinery in the United Arab Emirates. These springs required a permanent upward travel stop. The spring cans were supplied with PTFE and polished stainless steel slide plates attached to carbon steel load flange. All materials used were domestic (from the U.S.). The springs were tested for lateral loads. The spring coils were stress tested and can withstand temperatures of 176°F (80°C), with a downward movement of 30mm – 45mm.
