This picture above shows tension springs being prepared to support furnace tubes in a refinery reformer. The bottom picture shows one of the five springs the customer specified have a displacement scale attached, so operators can observe the inches of movement when the spring is expanded. These springs were part of a package of materials prepared for shipment to an overseas site by Piping Technology & Products, Inc. of Houston, TX. Our customers use spring coils to support loads from a few pounds to 100,000 pounds so they come in many sizes.Read More
The picture above shows a flue gas duct damper fabricated using Inconel for certain components by the Sweco Fab division of Piping Technology & Products, Inc. Two of these dampers were shipped to Trinidad for installation above the furnaces of an ammonia plant. They have a special refractory lining to withstand the high temperatures of the flue gases. The picture at the left show the linkage of the damper to the motor-driven control system. Each unit weighs approximately 2300 lb. and the openings are approximately 12 feet by 6 feet.

The two pictures above show a variety of spring supports for piping projects. At the top left is a row of spring hanger variables ready to form assemblies with rods, clamps and other hardware. Piping Technology & Products, Inc. manufactures all types of pipe supports and provides complete assemblies packaged and tagged to customer specifications for easy identification by the field crews who install them in power plants, petrochemical plants and paper mills. On the pallet at the top right and scattered through the lower picture are several Type F (base type) variable supports. Special features such as travel stops and the wide range of load and travel requirements result in a large variety of items built to satisfy particular customer requirements.Read More
Pictured above are special Type F variable springs being prepared for shipment overseas. Finite element analysis was used to specify stronger load columns to allow for a possible 30% lateral load. Loads as high as 30,000 pounds were required for some items. These variables also required a special three coat paint (white).Read More
Engineered spring hangers shown are being calibrated and tested at Piping Technology & Products, Inc., Houston, Texas Facility. A digital load cell is attached to the hydraulic press that guarantees calibration to the exact loads specified. The spring hanger will support the tubes in a reformer furnace destined for Venezuela.Read More
