These special sway braces that are subject to the banana effect were designed to specific requirements for a Coker Plant in Texas. With deflection capability of up to plus or minus 9″ in all directions, these sway braces are used to stabilize tall stacks. Five springs in tandem prevent binding during operation, and are necessary due to extreme length. The sway braces ranged from 70″ to 144″ in length and can handle up to 8,000 lbs. The precision machined pivoting ball joints positioned at each end allow for freedom of movement in any unpredictable direction.

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.
