Upcoming Webinar: Compact Spring Support

March 24th, 2016 Comments off

This webinar is over, view the recording at: http://info.pipingtech.com/compact-spring-support-webinar

PT&P partnered with Disc Spring Technology (DST) and is now manufacturing the compact spring support.

Disc SpringsThe Compact Spring Support Webinar will cover key objectives, background and leading industry problems related to process equipment nozzels (both rotating and non-rotating equipment). First we will review the challenges involved in design and analysis of piping with respect to process equipment nozzles. Secondly, we will discuss the types of chronic problems and failures related to process equipment nozzles and present (or introduce) the Compact Spring Support as a solution. During our discussion, we will explain why chronic problems with process equipment exist, describing current design practices as they relate to industry code standards and how the Compact Spring Support addresses these problems directly and effectively. And finally, we will take a quick look at DST technical data and sizing program.

Compact Spring Supports Designed for a Pump Application in Wyoming

Compact Spring Supports Designed for a Pump Application in Wyoming

These compact spring supports were custom designed and built within 4 weeks to support a pump for a facility in Wyoming. The housing was fabricated from A-36 carbon steel and hot-dipped galvanized to protect them against corrosion. The disc springs are engineered using the stainless steel Belleville disc springs designed for large loads but small movements. In this case, the springs are designed to support a load of 11,137 lb. and movement of 0.018″ (upward). Each assembly underwent load testing prior to shipment.

The compact size and resistance to corrosion attributes of these compact spring supports make them ideal for placement under the discharge piping of a pump at this facility. By using these compact spring supports directly on the pump, excessive thermal loading on the pump’s discharge nozzle is resolved and brings it within the pump manufacturer’s allowable limit, so the pump will operate safely, as intended which also results in extended life and low maintenance.

Disc Spring TechnologyThe compact spring is ideal for applications with large loads and limited space.

– Minimizes excessive loads on sensitive equipment
– Same load for smaller working range while consuming 25-50% less space
– Ideal for locating under equipment flanges
– Reduces design time, maintenance cost and accidents

These springs are the solution for satisfying excessive nozzle loads for load sensitive equipment, such as pumps, compressors, turbines, blowers, heat exchangers, pressure vessels and storage tanks. In addition, the entire spring support can be made from corrosion resistant stainless steels or other suitable alloys making it ideal for combating aggressive environments like seawater, marine air and harsh chemicals.
