Compact Springs Designed for an Oil Refinery Expansion Project

Type: Compact Spring Supports (Disc Springs)
Material: Carbon Steel | PTFE, 25% Glass-Filled
Design: Movement: 1/32″ to 1/4″ | Load: 12,000 lb.
Testing: Standard Spring Rate & Calibration Tests

These compact spring supports were custom designed for an oil refinery expansion project. They will be installed underneath a heat exchanger supporting a load up to 12,000 lb. The space available was limited to 3″ in height and the movements ranged from 1/32″ to 1/4″. These compact springs are fabricated from carbon steel and utilize engineered Belleville (disc spring) washers. 25% glass-filled (PTFE) slide plates are bonded to the top of the load flange and provide a low coefficient of friction.

Variable Spring Supports Designed for a Furnace in Trinidad

Type: F-Type Variable Spring Supports (Furnace Springs)
Material: Carbon Steel | Red Oxide Primer
Design: Movement: 1/2 “| Load: 398 lb. | Spring Rate: 84 lb./in.
Testing: Standard Spring Rate & Calibration Tests

PT&P designed and manufactured these F-Type variable spring supports for use in a furnace at a facility in Trinidad. We manufactured these furnace springs for an operating load of 398 lb., a movement up to 1/2″, and a springs rate of 84 lb./in. They are fabricated from carbon steel with a red oxide primer coating to protect against corrosion. Customer specifications required a modified, installed height, while maintaining the spring rate, operating load and install load. In order to accomplish this, PT&P designed, manufactured and attached, to each spring, a pedestal to accomplish the increased installed height.

Big Ton Spring Supports Designed for a Liquid Natural Gas Facility in Australia

Type: Big Ton Spring Supports
Size: 19-5/8″ x 19-5/8″ x 15″
Material: Hot-dipped Galvanized Carbon Steel | A193 Gr. B7
Design: Movements: 3/16 ” – 1/4″ | 16,619 lb. Load
Testing: Load Cell throughout Operating Range

These big ton spring supports were designed for a liquid natural gas (LNG) plant in Australia. They were selected because the application required supporting heavy loads as the supported equipment undergoes thermal expansion during operation. The assemblies are fabricated from hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel. The travel stop rods and nuts material is A193 Gr. B7. The units measure 19-5/8″ x 19-5/8″ x 15″ and are capable of supporting loads up to 13,619 lb. while accommodating movements from 3/16″ to 1/4″. The big tons were tested with a load cell to insure proper operation throughout the big ton’s operating range.

Constant Spring Support Assemblies Designed for a Chemical Plant in New Jersey

Type: Constant Spring Supports
Size: PTP 200 C-Type Double Suspension
Material: Hot-dipped Galvanized Carbon Steel | Epoxy Coated Springs
Load: 8,000 lb. – 19,000 lb. | Upward Movement: 6″ – 9″
Testing: Standard Load and Travel Test

PT&P designed twelve constant spring support assemblies for a chemical plant in New Jersey. The assemblies will be used as replacements in a recuperator up-leg and down-leg application in conjunction with custom cross-over supports previously fabricated by PT&P. Physical sizes of these constant assemblies range from 18-1/2″ x 22″ x 64″ to 18-1/2″ x 26″ x 83″. Operating loads range between 8,000 lb. – 19,000 lb. and each allows for upward movement between 6″ – 9″. The spring coils are coated with epoxy instead of the standard neoprene coating. Standard load and travel tests were completed prior to shipment.
