PT&P fabricated constant support assemblies for a power plant in New Mexico. The constant assemblies will be used in conjunction with structural supports also provided by PT&P. Operating loads range between 7,000 lb. and 20,000 lb. and designed for movements from 10-1/2″ to 12″. All thread rods were coated with rust prevention compound and the constants were painted with Intergard® 475 HSS. The travel stops are wired to the constants frame and can be reused to lock the constant, preventing travel during plant maintenance or shutdowns. Standard load and travel tests were completed according to MSS standards prior to shipment.
