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

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.
