G-Type Variable Spring Supports Designed for a Coker Replacement Project

PT&P fabricated PTP-6 G-type variable spring supports for a coker replacement project in Kansas. 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. They are 50″ in length, designed for an operating load of 15,000 lb. and fabricated from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. All variable assemblies underwent standard load and spring testing prior to shipment.

Custom Designed Upthrust Constant Spring Supports

PT&P designed Fig. PTP 200-U upthrust constant spring supports modified to accommodate an increased installed height. PT&P fabricated these constant assemblies from A36 carbon steel. They were designed for temperatures up to 185°F, and a load of 15,737 lb. The constants are capable of a downward total travel of 2″ and are 61″ L x 25″ W x 39″ H. Standard load and travel tests were conducted prior to shipment.

F-Type Variable Spring Supports Designed for an LNG Facility

PT&P manufactured F-type variable spring supports for an LNG facility in Colorado. The variables installed heights range from 10-5/8″ to 21-1/16″. The F-Type pipe hanger assembly is used to support the pipe from below and are typically mounted to concrete pads via anchor bolts or welded to structural steel. The various springs shown are designed for operating conditions ranging from loads of 633 lb. to 6510 lb. As with all of our variable supports, these were quality checked with a 100% spring coil deflection test and a load cell calibration to set the assembly at the prescribed installed load.

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.

Piping Technology & Products designed and fabricated 107 variable spring hanger assemblies for an Oil Sands Expansion Project in a central processing facility in Canada. We fabricated these C-type variable springs from hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel. The design loads range from 3,343 lb. to 3,417 lb., and each assembly underwent a series of tests and detailed quality control inspections prior to shipment.

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
