PT&P supplied over 400 clevis hanger assemblies for a pulp and paper plant in Indonesia. The assemblies accommodate elevation differences ranging from 94-1/2″ to 138″ with pipe diameters ranging from 1″ to 24″ and a rod diameter range of 3/8″ to 1-1/4″. All components were fabricated from hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel and are designed for ambient temperatures and loads ranging from 700 lb. to 7500 lb.Read More

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

These big ton spring supports were custom designed for an LNG plant in Australia. These units were designed with PTFE, 25% glass filled slide plates, and will be used under the saddle supports of a horizontal pressure vessel. The big tons were selected due to a combination of confined space, heavy loads, and thermal expansion. The units measure 28-3/8″ x 25-3/8″ x 13” and are capable of supporting a load up to 11,488 lb while accommodating a down travel of 0.31 inches.Read More
PT&P fabricated constant support assemblies for a power plant in New Mexico. The constant assemblies will be used in conjunction with structural supports also provided by PT&P. Operating loads range between 7,000 lb. and 20,000 lb. and designed for movements from 10-1/2″ to 12″. All thread rods were coated with rust prevention compound and the constants were painted with Intergard® 475 HSS. The travel stops are wired to the constants frame and can be reused to lock the constant, preventing travel during plant maintenance or shutdowns. Standard load and travel tests were completed according to MSS standards prior to shipment.Read More
