26'-9" Custom Designed Sway Struts with Ball Joints

These 26′-9″ long custom designed sway struts with ball joints were supplied for a power generating facility. There were 4 total assemblies that included 4″ diameter schedule 80 pipe with one ball joint and one extension piece on each end measuring 3″ in diameter and 6″ long. The sway struts, designed to support a load of 29,000 lb., will be used in the facility to allow movement between two structures along a parallel plane.

Sway Strut Assemblies with Custom Designed 3-Bolt Pipe Clamps

Sway Strut Assemblies with Custom Designed 3-Bolt Pipe Clamps

These sway strut assemblies are designed in conjunction with custom three-bolt clamps to prevent movement on the pipeline. The sway struts range in length from 25″ to 70″ from pin to pin. The operating load ranges between 8,000 lb. to 15,000 lb. The clamps are designed for pipe sizes ranging from 8″ to 24″. The sway strut assemblies are fabricated entirely from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanize finish. The completed assemblies also include a custom 2-coat paint system that was applied over the galvanize finish before being shipped to an LNG plant overseas.

Ball-Joint Sway Strut Assemblies (20,000 lb. load, 96" long)

Ball-Joint Sway Strut Assemblies (20,000 lb. load, 96" long)

The overall length of each sway strut is 96 inches. The pipe hanger assembly is designed to control 20,000 lb. of piping load during the system’s thermal expansion and contraction.

These sway struts have a ball joint located at each end connected by an extension rod that controls the piping system through its complete range of thermal piping movements. It is used to restrain movement of piping in one direction while providing for movement due to thermal expansion or contraction in another direction.

240" Sway Strut for a Local Refinery

240" Sway Strut for a Local Refinery

240" Sway Strut for a Local Refinery

This sway strut is fabricated from carbon steel and measures 240″ from pin to pin. The pipe is 6″ in diameter and has a load capability of 15,000 lbs. The components were completed with a hot-dipped galvanize finish and the pipe was coated with a shop primer. The function of a sway strut is to restrain movement of piping in one direction while providing for movement due to thermal expansion or contraction in another direction.

This particular sway strut will support a 30″ process line in a refinery. This type of support is necessary, because the current line has only a few I-beams for support. Additionally, the I-beams that support the line are very high off the ground and not capable of handling the large forces acting on the line. Due to the loads acting upon the pipe and length of the required strut, a heavy schedule pipe and heavier duty strut ends were necessary.

Alternate View of Sway Struts

Sway struts are used to restrain movement of piping in one direction while providing for movement due to thermal expansion or contraction in another direction. These sway struts are made of ASTM A387 GR22 weighing at 1,485 lbs each. They are 6″ in diameter and 8’2″ long and are used for main steam valve supports with specifically designed spacers, pins, and retainers capable of restraining movement up to 90,000 lbs at high temperatures exceeding 750F. The turnaround time for this was 6 weeks.
