These custom designed sway braces and variable spring assemblies were designed for hanger duct work in an aerospace development facility. The assemblies measure 67-1/2″ long with a 14-1/8″ O.D. The variables are a modified F-type spring with a pivoting base and non-standard coil combination, including a nested spring design. The assemblies include fully adjustable travel stops and custom end brackets. They are fabricated from carbon steel and designed for load ranges between 1100 lb. and 9250 lb. with a spring rate of +/- 2.78″.

This Webinar will focus on the different types of variable spring supports and big ton variable spring supports. Learn about the special features available, in addition to the design of a variable support. View how the different coil configurations produce a unique response to an applied load and see how a spring assembly is loaded. Discover the basic steps in selecting a hanger design and the step-by-step process used to size a spring for your application. Learn about the different attachments, testing, and installation and maintenance procedures. View examples of failed supports provided by our Field Service Division and learn why they failed and how to prevent it. Gain knowledge of the valuable tips used when deciding to replace or re-calibrate a variable spring support, as well as adjustments, shutdown, and isolation procedures.
