This big ton spring support assembly was designed for a facility in Kansas. For this application PTP’s big ton was used to support heat transfer and steam generating equipment typically used in fossil fuel power generation, combined cycle power generation, petrochemical, and process industries.
Big Ton spring supports are extremely stable. Base supports springs of this design are frequently used under horizontal pressure vessel saddle supports in combination with slide plates or roller supports. Our Big Ton design lends itself ideally to this support situation. Type F design is sufficient where there is a minimal amount of lateral movement, but where the combination of heavy loads and thermal expansion are required, Big Ton industrial springs should be your choice.
The big ton assemblies were fabricated from hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel and include neoprene coated springs coils. The travel stops and load column material is A193 Gr. B7. The units measure 29″ wide x 110″ long x 35″ high and are capable of supporting loads up to 98,250 lb. while accommodating movements from 1-3/4″ upward. The big tons were tested at our facility with a load cell designed by our team to ensure proper operation throughout the big ton’s operating range.
Alongside our ability to design and manufacture big tons specific to your system needs, our field service team is readily available to service, audit, maintain, and/or assist with installation of such products. For more on installation and maintenance take a look at our resource page:
