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.

The presentation also covers projects that brought on new standard designs and custom designs for specific applications. And lastly, it includes valuable additions and procedures that extend the typical lifespan of a pipe support.
