Refurbished A-36 Carbon Steel G-Type Constant on a Rush Basis

Damaged Constants in the Field

This constant spring support is fabricated from A-36 carbon steel and measures 39″ long x 29″ high x 11″ wide. This replacement support is designed to carry 11,000 lb. of piping load with a travel of 2 1/2″ upward. The limiting design factor was to stay within existing structural boundaries while allowing the constant assembly to move through its designed travel range.

Ball-Joint Sway Strut Assemblies (20,000 lb. load, 96″ long) for an Ammonia Plant

October 22nd, 2008 No comments
Ball-Joint Sway Strut Assemblies (20,000 lb. load, 96" long)

Ball-Joint Sway Strut Assemblies (20,000 lb. load, 96" long)

The overall length of each sway strut is 96 inches. The pipe hanger assembly is designed to control 20,000 lb. of piping load during the system’s thermal expansion and contraction.

These sway struts have a ball joint located at each end connected by an extension rod that controls the piping system through its complete range of thermal piping movements. It is used to restrain movement of piping in one direction while providing for movement due to thermal expansion or contraction in another direction.

Carbon Steel Limit Stops

Carbon Steel Limit Stops

These limit stops are fabricated from carbon steel with stainless steel inner components. These supports function to prevent excessive stress on the pipe by limiting motion due to earthquakes or other similar events.

They range in size between 20 7/8″ and 22 7/8″ from pin to pin. The load ranges between 12,500 lb. and 21,100 lb. The limit stops are passive restraints that are designed for a maximum thermal expansion of 5″, but can be preset for any specified amount of movement. They will be utilized in an oil refinery overseas.

Drawing of Variable Spring

Fabricated from A-36 carbon steel, these PTP-4 A-Type variable spring supports measure 6 5/8″ OD x 19 9/16″ in length with an installed load of 596 lb. They have a spring rate of 56 lb/in., and a downward travel of 1.375″. These supports are designed to suspend from a rod that is threaded through the upper portion of the variable (see Fig. PTP-4). This particular design is generally used to keep the variable further away from the beam to avoid interference.

200-C Type Constants for a Steam Plant

Close-Up View

These 200-C type constants are fabricated from A-36 carbon steel and are designed for a load ranging between 17,800 lb. and 25,600 lb. The constants have a downward travel ranging between 12 1/2″ and 16″. This support maintains a constant load throughout the designed travel. The diameter of the spring coil housing is 21″. The design includes a universal locking device capable of locking the hanger rod at any desired position. It also includes lifting lugs that aid in installing the constant in the field. Standard load and travel testing was performed before shipping to a steam plant.
