Sway Braces

These PT&P sway braces are fabricated from carbon steel and measure 126″ from pin to pin. They use an integral piston assembly with guide to eliminate any buckling and/or misalignment during extension and compression. The sway braces are designed for 10 1/2″ of travel and a load of 1,500 lb. A combination of standard spring coils is used to achieve the required spring rate of 150 lb./in.

Prior to shipment, a test was performed using a hydraulic ram. This test simulated actual field conditions and allowed the sway brace to move through the entire travel range in both compression and extension modes.

C-Type Constant with Special Lugs for a Power Plant

April 8th, 2009 No comments

 

 

C-Type Constant with Special Lugs

C-Type Constant with Special Lugs

This PT&P 100 C-Type constant spring support was designed in conjunction with special lugs to fit inside of a trolley. The lugs will provide for movement up and down, as well as extensive horizontal movement. This constant was fabricated entirely from A-36 carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanize finish. The constant measures 16″ wide x 25″ long x 56″ high. It is designed to carry 16,164 lb. of piping load with a travel of 3 1/2″ downward. The lugs will fit within a trolley by a single pin connection. This configuration will prevent swinging by maintaining the constant in an upright position, which will ensure proper functionality and eliminate any load deviation.

200 U-Type Constant Spring Supports with Slide Plates

Slide Plate on Constant

These custom designed constants will be utilized for a heavy load of 109,000 lb. They are designed for a downward travel of 1 1/2″. In order to support the heavy load and low take-off, the constants are designed with an inner and outer spring coil with the outer coil measuring 56″L with a 18 3/4″ O.D. These U-Type constants are fabricated from A36 carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanize finish.

The dimensions of the constant are 31″H x 90″L x 32″W. The image above shows a PTFE, 25% glass filled slide plate on top to reduce the friction between the constant load flange and the structure above the support. The constant also includes slide plates between the table and the frame of the constant to reduce the friction on the table and improve constant deviation.

120 3/8" Long Custom Variable Spring Supports with Four Individual Coils

120 3/8" Long Custom Variable Spring Supports with Four Individual Coils

These variable springs are custom designed from carbon steel material. The springs are fabricated with extra long housings to allow for a pre-compression lower than the standard. This ensured that the starting (cold) load of 26,745 lb. could be achieved. The springs are designed for a movement of 5.55″ downward, which would produce an operating load for each assembly of 38,305 lb. These springs are to be utilized in pairs together with a 22″ riser clamp to produce a 407″ total pipe hanger assembly length and an overall combined operating load of 76,610 lb.

Side View of Pipe Saddles

PT&P custom designed seventy-eight figure 2000 heavy duty pipe saddles for two 24″ insulated ductile iron pipelines. The two pipelines are routed beneath a 650′ bridge crossing over a river in upper New York State. The insulation is 3″ thick with high density polyethylene jacketing. Axial movements due to expansion can approach 3″. In order for the jacketing to avoid being damaged when displacements occur, the saddles have been lined with polished stainless steel.
