The slide plates are comprised of 1/4″ thick PTFE, 25% glass filled slide plates bonded to 1/8″ A240 grade 316 L stainless steel backing plates. Stainless steel was used for better resistance to corrosion and longevity. The assemblies measure 83″ long by 20″ wide and will be installed underneath a bridge. A total of 16 slide plates were fabricated and designed for a pressure of 500 psi at ambient temperature. PTFE, 25% glass filled material provides a low coefficient of friction, is easy to install, does not require surface treatments, or grouting, and is unaffected by weather conditions.Read More

Custom Designed Variable Spring Supports with Stainless Steel Slide Plates
This custom designed variable spring assembly is comprised of a standard PTP-1-160 type F variable spring with a supplementary extension and load flange with a stainless steel slide plate. The variable is fabricated entirely from carbon steel with a hot-dipped galvanize finish. The extension is schedule 40 pipe, 8″ in diameter and 12-5/16″ in height. The slide plate is fabricated from A240 grade stainless steel and is welded to the top of the load flange. This support will be used underneath a 16″ diameter pipe with a dummy leg. It is designed for 1/16″ vertical travel and 1/8″ horizontal travel for an oil refinery in Algeria.

19 Sets of Phosphorus Bronze and Stainless Steel Slide Plate Assemblies for Supporting Vessels
The slide plate assemblies are fabricated from stainless steel, phosphorus bronze, and carbon steel. The 2″ thick carbon steel base plate is securely anchored to a concrete foundation, and the stainless steel slide plates are affixed to the base plate by countersunk attachment bolts. The phosphorus bronze slide plates, with machined grooves on the underside are placed on top of the stainless steel plates.
To allow for lubrication between to the contact surfaces of the two slide plates, grease is added through a fitting on the side of the bronze slide plate. The fitting allows access to a channel in the center of the bronze slide plate that leads to the grooves. A hole is located in the 2″ thick base plate to allow for grout to be poured through after installation.

Slide Plate Assemblies with Marinite® Insulation and Vibration Pads
The slide plate assemblies were fabricated from a combination of stainless steel for the low-friction sliding surface and 2-3/4″ Marinite® insulation to isolate the higher temperatures. A fabric reinforced isolator pad was placed between the slide plate and the I-beam for vibration control. The slide plates were tested for both load and heat transfer and will be utilized in a chemical plant.
