Special PTP-100 E-Type constant spring supports were custom designed to support boiler trim piping for steam generating in an upper thermal power unit. The constants measure 5-3/8″ W x 16-3/4″ L x 23-1/2″ H. They are highly customized to meet the customer’s space requirements and operating method to eliminate the hanger rod from shifting, allowing it to move only vertically while going from cold to hot position. Standard constant assemblies of this size, are about 50% larger and the hanger rod would shift horizontally as the travel reaches the hot position. These constants are designed for loads ranging from 72 lb. to 92 lb. and movements ranging from 10″ to 11-1/2″ downward. Standard load and travel tests were conducted prior to shipment

Pipe Support and Expansion Joint Inspection Best Practices
PT&P/U.S. Bellows has performed over 1000+ Spring Support/Expansion Joint Audits in 30+ countries. We have an extensive database of results from these audits. In addition, we have conducted hundreds of lunch and learns and operating plants include 30+ in 2019. From this experience, we will provide an overview of best practices for auditing pipe supports and expansion joints as well as some key aspects of the ASME B31 code. We will touch on some of the most common areas of confusion we see at the operating plant level with regard to managing Spring Supports and Expansion Joints. We will also touch on how newer technology such as Laser Scanning can be used to assist with Inspections and Turnarounds.
