Sway Braces Custom Designed for Coker Units at an Oil Refinery in the Virgin Islands

 

Type: Custom Sway Braces with Ball Joints
Material: A36 Carbon Steel | Hot-dipped Galvanized

PT&P custom-designed sway braces on an urgent basis to replace existing sway braces at an oil refinery in the Virgin Islands. These sway braces will be used in coker units that have long displacements. They are fabricated with ball joints at both ends due to the “banana effect”. The casing, pipe, coils, threaded rods, turnbuckle, ball joints, etc. are all fabricated from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanized finish.

The maximum loads, spring rates and movements for the sway braces are as follows:

Max Load (lb) Spring Rate (lb/in) Max Movement (+ / – in)
2475 90 10″
3800 267 3-3/4″
3480 120 9″
2500 200 2″
