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 Shields for Beginners: Insulated Pipe Supports… for Commercial Applications
This webinar will give you an introduction to Pipe Shields, Inc. and its unique line of pre-insulated pipe supports, slides, guides, and anchors that it developed and patented over its 40-year history. It will cover various designs, commercial applications (chilled and heated water lines, HVAC systems, and low-pressure steam lines), installation and maintenance procedures, and the benefits of using pre-insulated pipe supports (vs. doing insulation in the field). This webinar will be delivered by Albert Dizon, General Manager of Pipe Shields, who has been working with pre-insulated pipe supports for 30+ years. Join us and receive some of his experience and wisdom!
