PT&P Custom Designs and Fabricates Big Ton Springs Equipped with Lifting Lugs

Big Ton Springs

Big Ton Springs

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. specially designed and fabricated big ton springs equipped with side lifting lugs to support piping of a 102-megawatt, refinery co-generation power plant in California.

Under typical circumstances, this type of job application would utilize variable spring hangers, but because of the restricted space, the hangers’ size would be too small to support a hot load of 19,068 lbs and cold load of 17,212 lbs.  In order to satisfy both the required loads and space, PT&P engineers designed and fabricated figure 500 big ton springs equipped with side lifting lugs. The lifting lugs were attached to allow the big ton to suspend as a variable spring would in the field.

The big ton springs are comprised of A-36 carbon steel and built at 13″x 23″x 9-1/2″ with a downward travel of .232″. The job was completed within two days to meet the customer’s quick turn requirements.

Introducing PT&P’s Maintenance Free Slide Plates, Bronzphites®

Piping Technology and Products is a supplier of maintenance free slide bearing plates, Bronzphite®, whose high strength bearings and impregnated graphite, together create a concoction ideal for maintaining excellent wear resistance and durability under severe operating conditions.

PT&P Utilizes 3D-Modeling Technology to Design Pipe Supports for a 750MW Power Plant

3D-Design Clamp

3D-Design

Pipe Clamps

Pipe Supports on Shipping Floor

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. recently designed and fabricated 9 pipe supports with loads up to 75,000 lbs. for a 750MW power plant in Alabama. After extensive engineering hours and structure analysis, PT&P’s engineering department produced a detailed design and 3-D model for the supports that would allow them to run electronic interface checks. The supports are to support the cooling towers’ circulatory water system at the power plant. Six of the 9 supports were designed for a 60” line and 50,000 lb. load, and the remaining 3 were designed for a 78” line and 75,000 lbs. of load.

Furnace Springs Versus Standard Springs The major differences between standard springs and furnace springs are their construction and intended use. Furnace springs operate in much the same way as other variable spring supports. They are designed to support the pipe and tubes that are subject to vertical thermal movement. The design changes come about because, furnace springs are exposed to extreme temperatures.

FURNACE SPRINGS STANDARD SPRINGS
COATINGS Red oxide primer in order to aviod potential hazards when exposed to high temperatures Hot dipped galvanized which tends to melt the zinc coating. Molten zinc can damage surrounding pipe and equipment.
CONSTRUCTION
Unique to its application and intended use
Welded design for housing assembly
Centers the spring coils within the housing and accommodates lug attachments
Interchangeable
Bolted configuration for the housing
DESIGN Spring used as a means to determine the loading of the catalyst tubes
