251 variable furnace springs were designed and fabricated for fertilizer production at a chemical plant in Virginia. The furnace cans are carbon steel and painted with red-oxide primer to avoid any potential hazards where exposed to high temperatures. This project included figures: PTP-1-120, PTP-2-150, PTP-2-180, PTP-4-100 and PTP-4-200 variable furnace springs with operating loads ranging from 1,042 lb. to 15,512 lb. A load test on all variable springs was conducted prior to shipment.

*Note: Time Zone is CDT * Central Daylight Savings Time / GMT -5h
Live Webinars are worth 1 PDH Credit for TX Professional Engineers
Learn how the theoretical applications of spring supports are put into use in the real world. We will start with a review of the working principles of both variable and constant springs. See how brand new spring looks at delivery, and review installation guidelines. Learn the key points to review through the total installation process and subsequently when the springs are in operation. See how to determine if springs need adjustments, re-calibration, refurbishment, or replacement. View in field examples, shutdown, and isolation procedures. See the selection process required when there are significant changes to the operating condition.
