Variable Spring Support with Bronzphite® Slide Plates Designed for a Facility in Canada

May 23rd, 2016 Comments off

Variable Spring Support with Bronzphite® Slide Plates Designed for a Facility in Canada

PT&P manufactured these F-type variable spring supports for a facility in Canada. The springs are fabricated from A36 carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. The variables installed heights range from 11″ to 15″ and are designed for operating conditions up to 4,000 lb. Bronzphite® is best suited for high loads, low velocity applications and where the use of oil or grease is undesirable or unfeasible. The bronze plate acts as the bearing surface, withstanding heavy loads, while the graphite inserts provide a solid, oil-free lubricant. As with all of our variable supports, these were quality checked with a 100% spring coil deflection test and a load cell calibration to set the assembly at the prescribed installed load.

13,900 lb. Load Pipe Shoes and Bronzphite® Slide Plate

Piping Technology and Products, Inc. recently designed and fabricated more than 75 pipe shoe and Bronzphite® slide plate assemblies for an oil refinery in Texas. Each assembly consists of two pipe clamps, a base plate and a maintenance free Bronzphite® slide plate. The pipe shoes with sizes ranging from 18 to 24 are fabricated from A387 alloy steel. They are designed for 965°F and 2 of horizontal movement.

The 3 x 3 Bronzphite® (graphite impregnated bronze) slide plates are self-lubricating bearing plates made of a high quality bronze with graphite filled grooves. They are designed for heavy loads, low velocity applications, and for situations where the use of oil or grease is undesirable or unfeasible.

Bronzphite® Plates for a Construction Company in Dubai

These ½ x 7 x 12 Bronzphite® plates were bolted to a 2 ¾ x 11 x 16 backing plate with a 5mm recess. The recess allowed the Bronzphite® plates to be countersunk and bolted to the backing plates. The Bronzphite® plates were designed to withstand 14Mpa working compression and a maximum temperature of 230˚F.

PT&P Custom Designs and Fabricates Big Ton Springs Equipped with Lifting Lugs

Big Ton Springs

Big Ton Springs

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. specially designed and fabricated big ton springs equipped with side lifting lugs to support piping of a 102-megawatt, refinery co-generation power plant in California.

Under typical circumstances, this type of job application would utilize variable spring hangers, but because of the restricted space, the hangers’ size would be too small to support a hot load of 19,068 lbs and cold load of 17,212 lbs.  In order to satisfy both the required loads and space, PT&P engineers designed and fabricated figure 500 big ton springs equipped with side lifting lugs. The lifting lugs were attached to allow the big ton to suspend as a variable spring would in the field.

The big ton springs are comprised of A-36 carbon steel and built at 13″x 23″x 9-1/2″ with a downward travel of .232″. The job was completed within two days to meet the customer’s quick turn requirements.
