Sweco Fab recently designed and manufactured two carbon steel sway struts with 2” adjustment capabilities for a cycle unit project. The sway strut is constructed of an 8” diameter pipe, 130 ¼” long, assembled with rod ends and brackets for an overall assembly length of 15’-0”. The 2” adjustment capability is accompanied by a load capacity up to 128 KIPS. Sway struts are used to restrain movement of piping in one direction while providing movement from thermal expansion or contraction in another direction.
