Fronek Anchor/Darling, a division of PT&P, designed and manufactured hydraulic snubbers for Geothermal power plants. Historically, these plants are located near tectonic plate boundaries in the Earth’s crust where thermal activity is easily tapped into. This heat energy is transferred into electrical energy through the use of turbines, generators, and heat exchangers. These snubbers are fabricated from stainless steel and include a special paint system suitable for a Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) environment. All the snubbers for this application were a 2-1/2 bore size, capable of operating at loads up to 10,000 lb., and were provided with either 6″ or 12″ of available stroke. The Pin-to-Pin dimensions ranged from approximately 36″ to 54″ Each snubber was tested at its rated capacity to assure acceptable dynamic performance once it is installed in the field.

Compact or “Disc” Spring Support Live Webinar
Date: Thursday, October 21, 2021 – Register for 10:00 am or 2:00 pm
*Note: Time Zone is CDT * Central Daylight Savings Time / GMT -5h
Live Webinars are worth 1 PDH Credit for TX Professional Engineers
The Compact Spring Support Webinar will cover key objectives, background, and leading industry problems related to process equipment nozzles (both rotating and non-rotating equipment). First, we will review the challenges involved in the 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 the technical data and sizing program.
