Five total assemblies of custom designed variable spring supports were made for an oil refinery in the United Arab Emirates. These springs required a permanent upward travel stop. The spring cans were supplied with PTFE and polished stainless steel slide plates attached to carbon steel load flange. All materials used were domestic (from the U.S.). The springs were tested for lateral loads. The spring coils were stress tested and can withstand temperatures of 176°F (80°C), with a downward movement of 30mm – 45mm.

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.
