The picture above shows the “before” and “after” of constant supports refurbished by Piping Technology & Products, Inc. Customers ship these units to our plant during a turn-around in a wide variety of conditions. In this case it was cheaper and faster to refurbish them than to rebuild. In either case each unit is completely tested in a load cell to assure performance and a new name plate is attached to record the load, travel and other parameters. Four of these horizontal upthrust supports can be seen above, ready for return to the customers. Power plants, petrochemical plants and paper mills are the primary users of this service.
