PT&P designed and manufactured forty PTP 200- type “E” constant hanger assemblies with pipe sizes ranging from 36” to 62” for an oil refinery in Canada. These constant hanger assemblies are designed to support and allow vertical movement of the field pipe during thermal expansion. The constants have a load capacity of 2800 lbs. to 9200 lbs. and a 3”-7” travel range. To assure quality, standard load testing was performed on the constants prior to shipping. The assemblies’ components consist of a constant load hanger, a rod and a clamp. The constants are fabricated from ASTM A36 carbon steel and the rod and clamp were manufactured from ASTM A240, Gr. 304 stainless steel.
