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.

Shipping Pre-Insulated Supports

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and fabricated rotational anchor pre-insulated pipe supports for a fluid processing plant in Kuwait. The supports range in size from 24″ to 34″ in diameter and are capable of withstanding 12,500 lb. of vertical load. The bottom of the hot shoe is fabricated from carbon steel and the top from stainless steel.

These supports include stainless steel inner thrust plates that function as an anchor to prohibit the pipe from rotating within the shoe. These supports are designed for steam super heater lines and provide thermal insulation for the pipe in order to prevent heat loss and condensation.

Slideplates on Big Ton Spring Assembly

This big ton spring assembly is designed for a local area refinery, and is fabricated from carbon steel components with a painted finish. The top of the load flange has three PTFE, 25% glass filled slide plates. The base is 96″ x 18″ and the installed height is 24″. This big ton spring will be utilized to support heavy (in excess of 76,000 lb.) loads where a standard variable spring would be undersized. The big ton spring design includes an array of parallel coils within one frame to produce large load carrying capacity while maintaining the same spring rate. The assembly is designed to withstand an operating load of 76,800 lb. and has a downward travel of 0.894″.

Prior to fabrication, each of the coils were individually tested to insure correct spring rate and load capacity. After fabrication, the entire assembly was tested throughout the entire load and travel range.

10 Feet Long Graphite Slide Plates for a Plant in Alberta

The top sheet of graphite measures 1/2″ x 11 1/2″ x 115 1/2″. This particular design also includes a bottom sheet of graphite with the same dimensions, but only 1/4″ thick. Each individual graphite sheet is bonded to a hot dipped galvanized backing plate with a 1/2″ lip all around for full welding. In an application where the pipe has large amount of movement due to thermal expansion, slide plates can be utilized to eliminate friction between the pipe support and the supporting member. Graphite is used when the slide plate must function at high temperatures. These particular graphite slide plates are designed for 1000ºF.
