Furnace Spring Assemblies up to 13,000 lbs. for a Chemical Refinery

Piping Technology and Products, Inc. designed and manufactured furnace spring assemblies for a chemical refinery in Saudi Arabia.  Each pipe hanger assembly consists of a variable spring, rod, clevis, hex nuts, and pipe attachments. Unlike other variable springs which are designed to have bolted housings, these furnace springs are designed for spring coils with a customer specified spring rate installed in a welded housing. The sizes of these Fig. PTP-2 and Fig. PTP-4 ranged from 90-170, with a total travel of 1 1/4″ to 5″, and loads varying from 850 lbs to 13,300 lbs.

9200 lb. Load Type “E” Constant Hanger Assemblies

9200 lb. Load Type “E” Constant Hanger Assemblies

PT&P designed and manufactured forty PTP 200- type “E” constant hanger assemblies with pipe sizes ranging from 36” to 62” for an oil refinery in Canada.  These constant hanger assemblies are designed to support and allow vertical movement of the field pipe during thermal expansion. The constants have a load capacity of 2800 lbs. to 9200 lbs. and a 3”-7” travel range. To assure quality, standard load testing was performed on the constants prior to shipping. The assemblies’ components consist of a constant load hanger, a rod and a clamp. The constants are fabricated from ASTM A36 carbon steel and the rod and clamp were manufactured from ASTM A240, Gr. 304 stainless steel.

950 lb. load C-type Constants

PT&P recently designed and manufactured sixteen PTP-200 C-type constants modified to fit in constricted areas near a furnace of a chemical facility.  These constants are designed to travel from 5 1/2” to 19” and are specified to carry loads ranging from 245 to 924 lbs. They were fabricated from A36 plates with 4140 pins. Due to the proximity of the pipes and other equipment, the front part of the constant frame was cut to allow the pipe to move freely. Load and travel testing was performed to ensure quality and precise performance.

1,520 Spring Assemblies for a Chemical Plant

1,520 Spring Assemblies for a Chemical Plant

1,520 Spring Assemblies for a Chemical Plant

PT&P recently manufactured 1,520 PTP-2 and PTP-4 spring hanger assemblies designed specifically for a furnace application. These custom variable springs have welded components as opposed to bolted components found in standard assemblies. Due to the space limitation within the furnace, the spring coils were set in a welded housing which allows for the springs to be closely oriented within a smaller spatial envelope. The pipe hanger assemblies are made from carbon steel, consisting of variable spring, rod, and riser clamp components. Instead of galvanizing, the assemblies were coated with a red-oxide primer due to the high temperature operating conditions of the furnace. This prevents the possibility of molten zinc (from the galvanizing process) contaminating the furnace tubes.

The springs are designed for loads of 143 to 660 lbs. and for total travel ranging from 3/4 to 2″. Each assembly was pre-assembled to ensure free movement throughout the spring’s travel range before welding the bottom closure plate. Prior to shipment, all assemblies were calibrated to determine the exact spring rate and then were set to the customer’s designated cold load position. These springs are then located and installed into the furnace based on the spring rate.
