PT&P designed and fabricated 300 variable spring supports for use in a furnace within a methanol processing facility in Mexico. We manufactured the ”housing” of these variable springs using seamless pipe (in order to prevent the springs’ coils from rubbing against the ”weld seam” of a standard pipe) so that the exact spring rate (+/- 5%) can be calculated without discrepancies or variations. The reason that an accurate spring rate is important is because furnace springs function as a ”scale” in order to determine the weight of the radiant coils within the unit. These springs are coated with red oxide primer to protect against corrosion. We manufactured these furnace spring assemblies for an operating load of 1,036 lb. and a movement up to 8 1/2″. Each spring is traceable to test data and tagged with its’ unique spring rate along with other standard information use for identification.

Pipe Shields for Beginners: Insulated Pipe Supports… for Commercial Applications
This webinar will give you an introduction to Pipe Shields, Inc. and its unique line of pre-insulated pipe supports, slides, guides, and anchors that it developed and patented over its 40-year history. It will cover various designs, commercial applications (chilled and heated water lines, HVAC systems, and low-pressure steam lines), installation and maintenance procedures, and the benefits of using pre-insulated pipe supports (vs. doing insulation in the field). This webinar will be delivered by Albert Dizon, General Manager of Pipe Shields, who has been working with pre-insulated pipe supports for 30+ years. Join us and receive some of his experience and wisdom!
