These compact spring supports were custom-designed to support large diameter piping at a chemical plant that manufactures ethylene, propylene, butadiene, benzene, propylene oxide, styrene monomer, and other derivatives and gasoline-blending products. They are designed for large loads (13,623 lb. to 24,038 lb.) and a small confined space with limited thermal movement (from 0.2″ to 0.3″). Compact spring supports (or disc springs) minimize excessive loads on sensitive equipment, so these types of spring support the same load as a conventional variable spring but with a smaller “working range” and utilizing 25-50% less space. They are ideal for locating under equipment flanges or other locations where space is limited. The housing is fabricated from A-36 carbon steel and hot-dipped galvanized to protect against corrosion. They have an installed height of 13″ – 15″ and are 21″ in diameter. The “disc springs” are engineered using stainless steel. Each assembly underwent load testing and other NDE prior to shipment.

Slide Plates & Pipe Rollers in the Fight Against Friction
*Note: Time Zone is CDT * Central Daylight Savings Time / GMT -5h
Live Webinars are 1 PE/PDH Credit for TX Professional Engineers
Discover the secret to a lower coefficient of friction while permitting translational motion or movement with the supporting element. Learn about the different types of slide plates and pipe rollers used for various applications. View the design, load capabilities, and installation and maintenance guidelines for both slide plates and pipe rollers. See numerous photos featuring combinations with other critical pipe supports in order to allow for movement or a low coefficient of friction. Increase your understanding of the value-added services that are offered by PT&P, and rest assured that your slide plate and pipe roller needs can be taken care of by our 24×7 web-based emergency services, field service, and quick turnaround time when you need it most.
