The sway braces will be used in pairs to support a 72″ diameter cooling tower supply line via a common attachment point. The internal components and housing are fabricated from carbon steel, and A-5160 spring steel was used for the coil. Each sway brace has a spring rate of 10,100 lb/in. with an overall available travel of 3″. The adjustable ends are configured so that one end bracket is interlocked with the mating end bracket of its sister sway brace; therefore, enabling them to be connected to the pipe by a single lug.
