These compact spring supports were custom designed for an oil refinery expansion project. They will be installed underneath a heat exchanger supporting a load up to 12,000 lb. The space available was limited to 3″ in height and the movements ranged from 1/32″ to 1/4″. These compact springs are fabricated from carbon steel and utilize engineered Belleville (disc spring) washers. 25% glass-filled (PTFE) slide plates are bonded to the top of the load flange and provide a low coefficient of friction.
