Drawing of Variable Spring

Fabricated from A-36 carbon steel, these PTP-4 A-Type variable spring supports measure 6 5/8″ OD x 19 9/16″ in length with an installed load of 596 lb. They have a spring rate of 56 lb/in., and a downward travel of 1.375″. These supports are designed to suspend from a rod that is threaded through the upper portion of the variable (see Fig. PTP-4). This particular design is generally used to keep the variable further away from the beam to avoid interference.

200-C Type Constants for a Steam Plant

Close-Up View

These 200-C type constants are fabricated from A-36 carbon steel and are designed for a load ranging between 17,800 lb. and 25,600 lb. The constants have a downward travel ranging between 12 1/2″ and 16″. This support maintains a constant load throughout the designed travel. The diameter of the spring coil housing is 21″. The design includes a universal locking device capable of locking the hanger rod at any desired position. It also includes lifting lugs that aid in installing the constant in the field. Standard load and travel testing was performed before shipping to a steam plant.

10 Feet Long Graphite Slide Plates for a Plant in Alberta

10 Feet Long Graphite Slide Plates for a Plant in Alberta

The top sheet of graphite measures 1/2″ x 11 1/2″ x 115 1/2″. This particular design also includes a bottom sheet of graphite with the same dimensions, but only 1/4″ thick. Each individual graphite sheet is bonded to a hot dipped galvanized backing plate with a 1/2″ lip all around for full welding. In an application where the pipe has large amount of movement due to thermal expansion, slide plates can be utilized to eliminate friction between the pipe support and the supporting member. Graphite is used when the slide plate must function at high temperatures. These particular graphite slide plates are designed for 1000ºF.

63″ x 63″ Big Ton Springs for an Oil Refinery

63" x 63" Big Ton Springs for an Oil Refinery

63" x 63" Big Ton Springs for an Oil Refinery

The base measures 63 inches square while the top load flange measures 55 inches square. One of the springs has an overall height of 22-7/16″ and the other an overall height of 28-5/8″. Both big ton springs are custom designed and fabricated from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. The top of the load flange is covered by a stainless steel slide plate. These big ton springs will be used to support heavy (in excess of 100,000 lb.) loads where a standard variable spring would be undersized.

One of the big ton springs is designed with a operating load of 126,000 lb. and the other with an operating load of 225,000 lb. Prior to fabrication, all of the coils, within the frame, were individually tested to insure correct spring rate and load capacity. After the units are fabricated, the entire assembly is tested throughout the entire load/travel range.

Do you require a similar spring support in your piping system?  Let us price it for you now!

Permali® Cold Shoes for Carbon Steel Pipe

Permali® Cold Shoes for Carbon Steel Pipe

These cold shoes are anchors supports and fabricated with A-36 carbon steel and permali® block insulation. The carbon steel is hot-dipped galvanized for protection and longevity of the cold shoe. The permali® block insulation, between the base plate and the saddle, functions to insulate the supporting structure from extreme cold temperatures of the pipe.

These cold shoes are designed for pipes ranging in size from 6″ to 14″. The assemblies are capable of loads ranging from 194,000 lb. to 291,000 lb.
