B-Type Constant Spring Supports Designed for a Hydrocracker Application

PT&P manufactured B type constant spring supports for a hydrocracker application at a refinery in Port Author, TX. These custom designed constants are 83″ x 41″ x 20″, and designed to support a 53,000 lb. riser pipe through two trunnions. The constants are designed for an operating load of 26,700 lb. with 10-1/2″ of total travel. They are fabricated from A36 carbon steel and underwent standard load and travel testing prior to shipment.

G-Type Variable Spring Supports Designed for a Chemical Plant

PT&P designed G-Type variable spring supports for a chemical plant in Texas. The variables are comprised of two standard spring housing joined together with an intermediate bridge assembly. The bridge assembly is customized to match existing site conditions which allows for use in applications with limited space or interferences. The variables are fabricated from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. The assemblies were designed for a total operating load of 23,522 lb. with a downward design travel of 3/8″. Each assembly underwent a standard load test prior to shipment.

Hydraulic Snubbers Designed for an LNG Facility in Texas

Fronek Anchor/Darling Enterprises, a division of PT&P, designed snubbers for a LNG facility in Texas. These Fig. 511 AD hydraulic snubbers range in size from 76″ – 85″ piston-to-piston and are fabricated from carbon steel. They are designed for a maximum load of 32,000 lb., 6″ stroke and have a 4″ diameter cylinder. Hydraulic snubbers are designed to protect the piping system when a sudden, heavy load is applied (such as an earthquake of high intensity), which can cause serious vibrations leading to damage and possible failure of the piping system. A cycle test throughout the full stroke from zero to fully extended was performed prior to shipment

Trunnions Designed with Insulation for an LNG Facility

PT&P designed cryogenic trunnions with 2″ thick G-10 block insulation for an LNG facility in Australia. The trunnions are fabricated from 10″, 12″ and 24″ diameter pipe. The upper sections are fabricated from stainless steel pipe and plate while the lower sections are carbon steel. These insulated supports are designed for temperatures down to -300°F and operating loads of 4,990 lb.

Variable Spring Supports Custom Designed for a Furnace Application in an Ammonia Plant

PT&P custom designed variable spring supports for catalyst tubes in a furnace for an ammonia plant in Canada. The furnace springs are fabricated from carbon steel and painted with a red-oxide primer to help prevent corrosion. This project required special coils that were within +/- 5% of the calculated spring rate. Over 245 springs underwent calibration test prior to shipment. PT&P has been supplying furnace springs for over 25 years and can customize them to meet your specifications.

Pre-Insulated Pipe Supports Designed for High Temperatures in a Power Plant

Piping Technology designed hot shoes with sliding bases for a power plant in Mississippi. The assemblies will be installed on 28″ diameter pipe and include 1-1/2″ thick calcium silicate insulation. Manufacturing fabricated these supports from galvanized carbon steel with a polyethylene base. They are capable of an operating load of 7,200 lb., temperatures up to 1,200 degrees F and an axial movement of +/- 4-1/2″. The shipment was met three days prior to the critical field need date.

PT&P partners with Disc Spring Technology to offer you the Compact Spring Support

June 9th, 2014 Comments off

Disc Spring TechnologyThe compact spring is ideal for applications with large loads and limited space.

- Minimizes excessive loads on sensitive equipment
- Same load for smaller working range while consuming 25-50% less space
- Ideal for locating under equipment flanges
- Reduces design time, maintenance cost and accidents

Disc-Spring-and-In-Application

These springs are the solution for satisfying excessive nozzle loads for load sensitive equipment, such as pumps, compressors, turbines, blowers, heat exchangers, pressure vessels and storage tanks. In addition, the entire spring support can be made from corrosion resistant stainless steels or other suitable alloys making it ideal for combating aggressive environments like seawater, marine air and harsh chemicals.
