Big Ton Spring Supports Custom Designed for a Chemical Plant in Singapore

Type: Big Ton Spring Supports
Material: Carbon Steel/SAE 5160H
Design: 44mm up & Operating Load 130,642 N
Testing: Standard Load & Travel Tests

PT&P custom designed big ton spring supports for a chemical plant in Singapore. These types of supports are used in supporting large heavy units such as compressors, vessels and pumps in power and petrochemical plants. The materials that were used are a carbon steel housing and frame with spring coil- SAE 5160H. The big ton spring support is designed to allow limited movement of 44 mm up with operating load of 130,642 N. By doing this, it’s saving the customer from having to entirely redesign the piping system and saving thousands of dollars. This custom big ton design was shipped in 6 weeks.

Big Ton Spring Supports Custom Designed for an LNG Facility

Type: Big Ton Spring Supports with PTFE Slide Plates
Size: 29-7/8″ x 29-7/8″ 16-1/2″
Material: Carbon Steel with HDG Finish | PTFE, 25% Glass Filled Slide Plate
Testing: Tested in a press connected to the load cell

PT&P custom designed big ton spring supports with PTFE slide plates for an LNG facility in Australia. The components within the spring housing include load columns, travel stops, spring coils and lifting lugs. Each assembly is designed for an operating load ranging from 16,276 lb. to 34,479 lb. and will allow for movement between 0.16″ and 0.24″. They are fabricated from hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel and measure 29-7/8″ x 29-7/8″ x 16-1/2″. The big ton spring support is ideal for applications that have very heavy loads with thermal expansion because of the stability they provide throughout the range of travel. These supports were tested in the press connected to a load cell to insure proper operation throughout the entire working range of the coils.

Big Ton Spring Supports Designed for Propane De-Hydrogenation Facility

PT&P custom designed big ton spring supports for a propane dehydrogenation facility in Texas. The components within these assemblies include the spring housing, load columns, travel stops, spring coils and lifting lugs. While both assemblies measure 42” x 24” x 26-1/2”, they were each modified based on independent specifications for operating loads and movement. The first will accommodate a load of 94,261 lb. and 0.085” of movement, while the second will accommodate a load of 102,219 lb. with 0.08” of movement.

This type of support is ideal for applications, such as pressure vessels, that combine very heavy loads with thermal expansion because of the stability they provide. The big tons were tested in the load cell to insure proper operation throughout the entire working range of the coils.
