PT&P designed and fabricated D-type variable spring supports for a coker unit in an oil refinery in the UAE. The variables are designed for a special pipe diameter of 4-3/4″. The cans are fabricated from electro-galvanized carbon steel, and the springs are coated with an electrophoretic epoxy coating. The variable springs are designed for 2.79″ of upwards movement, 300 lb. at 81°F. Standard load test and a spring rate test was performed prior to shipment.
