PT&P designed and fabricated 112 variable spring supports for a furnace application at an oil refinery in California. The spring cans are fabricated from carbon steel, vary from 36″ to 54″ in height and designed to operate at 400°F. The furnace cans are designed for operating loads ranging from 180 lb. to 1,400 lb. and movements from 1″ to 5″. The customer specified a custom paint system of two part iron oxide blue finish for the cans to comply with refinery conditions. Load tests were performed on the assemblies prior to shipment to determine the operating load and variability.
