PT&P designed and manufactured 27 B-Type variable spring supports for an oil refinery in Louisiana. The spring cans, rods, welded beam attachments, turnbuckles and clevises are fabricated from carbon steel. The spring cans have a 12-3/4″ diameter and measure 290″ from the bottom of the steel to the connection of the pipe. They were designed for 2″ of vertical movement and operating loads between 24,375 and 27,500 lb.
