PT&P fabricated big ton spring supports for an expedited delivery of six weeks from conceptual design to final delivery. The big tons measure 26″ long x 26″ deep x 34-5/8″ tall and will be used to support substantial vertical loads while simultaneously providing a base support structure. They are designed for operating loads of 36,000 lb. with a travel of .5625″ down.
Due to the harsh and corrosive environment, the exposed metal surfaces were finished with a three-coat urethane paint while the threaded components were cadmium plated with a blue Fluorocarbon coating. The big tons were also salt water spray tested according to ASTM B117 standards, and load tested to verify the springs’ functionality throughout the entire travel range.Read More
