The photograph above shows a CAD Spring Support to handle over 45,000 lb. Load with movement in excess of 4”. This is a PTP-8, size 22 Type F Spring Support utilizing four stacked hellcat coils with eliminates the possibility of binding or squirming, problems which baffled others attempting development of such a design. Travel stops hold the coils in compression to cold load, while hydrostatic test spots prevent the coils from “bottoming out” during line tests. The spring casing and baseplate, which eliminates the need to weld after galvanizing, are paramount to the success of this design.

Tension (Pigtail) Spring Supports

This picture above shows tension springs being prepared to support furnace tubes in a refinery reformer. The bottom picture shows one of the five springs the customer specified have a displacement scale attached, so operator’s can observe the inches of movement when the spring is expanded. These springs were part of a package of materials prepared for shipment to an overseas site by Piping Technology & Products, Inc. of Houston, TX. Our customers use spring coils to support loads from a few pounds to 100,000 pounds so they come in many sizes.
