This constant utilizes sealed cam follower roller bearings in place of slide plates that are generally used between the moving table and stationary frame. The rollers help to reduce the friction on the table, reduce residual loads which improve constant deviation, and help to restrict table movement in horizontal directions. These U-Type constants are fabricated from A36 carbon steel with dimensions of 28″H x 37″L x 17″W. The boxing, bolting patterns and loading table location are custom designed per customer specifications. The design also includes a graphite plate bonded to the top of the load flange to reduce the friction between the constant load flange and the saddle support above it. The supports are designed to carry 3015 lb. of piping load with an upward travel of 6″. The constants underwent standard load and travel testing before being shipped to an energy plant.

Wireless Technology & Bluetooth Tracking for EPC, Power Plant, End Users, Midstream and Upstream
Join us for a new webinar on Wireless Technology & Bluetooth Tracking. During the webinar, we will talk about the evolution of Wireless communications technologies from wireless bridging, wireless sensors, and instrumentation, as well as RF technology. PT&P has helped innovate with a point to point communication to have shorter turnaround as well as sensors providing more frequent readings with more data to aid with critical decision making. PT&P is the first company to incorporate Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology for the purpose of asset tracking. PT&P has looked extensively at the various technologies that can be used for asset tracking and believes there are significant limitations with historical RFID and Mobile technologies in terms of cost/performance. The BLE emits a signal to your phone and gives GPS coordinates it is compatible with Android and iOS devices. Our strategy is to be cost-effective as well as a practical solution to all EPC project needs.
This technology is extremely critical in linking systems and the people who control those systems together. PT&P utilizes FEA and Thermal Analysis, as well as LiDAR Technology. We have chosen to innovate even further by introducing asset tracking by Bluetooth low energy which makes inventory, supply chain operations, and material management time reduced.
