These big ton variable spring assemblies were custom designed for an LNG plant in Western Australia. They are specially designed with PTFE, 25% glass filled slide plates, and will be used under horizontal pressure vessel saddle supports. The big tons were selected due to a combination of heavy loads and thermal expansion. The units measure 30″ x 30″ and are capable of supporting a load up to 95,000 lb. with down travel of 2 to 5mm vertical.

The Compact Spring Support Webinar will cover key objectives, background, and leading industry problems related to process equipment nozzles (both rotating and non-rotating equipment). First, we will review the challenges involved in the design and analysis of piping with respect to process equipment nozzles. Secondly, we will discuss the types of chronic problems and failures related to process equipment nozzles and present (or introduce) the Compact Spring Support as a solution. During our discussion, we will explain why chronic problems with process equipment exist, describing current design practices as they relate to industry code standards and how the Compact Spring Support addresses these problems directly and effectively. And finally, we will take a quick look at the technical data and sizing program.
