PT&P custom designed and fabricated these F-type variable springs with rollers to be used in a refinery in Kansas. The variables are fabricated from carbon steel with a stainless steel clamp-on shoe that attaches to the load column. These F-type variable spring assemblies measure 23″ in height and have an upward travel of 3″. The operating load is 1,000 lb. and the installed load is 1,300 lb. The function of this custom designed variable spring is to allow large axial movement along the axis of the pipe centerline. The load column is modified to accommodate the special clamp-on shoe. The customized wheels allow for movement of the entire spring assembly in conjuction with the pipe.
