Big Ton Spring Supports Custom Designed for an LNG Facility

Type: Big Ton Spring Supports with PTFE Slide Plates
Size: 29-7/8″ x 29-7/8″ 16-1/2″
Material: Carbon Steel with HDG Finish | PTFE, 25% Glass Filled Slide Plate
Testing: Tested in a press connected to the load cell

PT&P custom designed big ton spring supports with PTFE slide plates for an LNG facility in Australia. The components within the spring housing include load columns, travel stops, spring coils and lifting lugs. Each assembly is designed for an operating load ranging from 16,276 lb. to 34,479 lb. and will allow for movement between 0.16″ and 0.24″. They are fabricated from hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel and measure 29-7/8″ x 29-7/8″ x 16-1/2″. The big ton spring support is ideal for applications that have very heavy loads with thermal expansion because of the stability they provide throughout the range of travel. These supports were tested in the press connected to a load cell to insure proper operation throughout the entire working range of the coils.
