The clevis and turnbuckle pictured are each fabricated from individual solid pieces of 304H stainless steel. The 304H material, which has a maximum carbon content of 0.06%, was required because these items are designed to be used in an environment with temperatures up to 1000ºF. The customer’s specifications mandated that no welding would be allowed on either the clevises or turnbuckles. Additionally, no forgings were readily available, so blocks of 304H stainless steel were utilized in this design.

Both the clevises and turnbuckles are made to accommodate rod diameter ranges between 1-1/4″ to 1-3/4″. These components have a maximum load capacity of 18,600 lb. The clevises measure 3″ thick x 5-1/4″ wide x 10-5/8″ tall. The turnbuckles measure 2″ thick x 4″ wide x 9-1/4″ tall. Prior to fabrication, each component was modeled using finite element analysis to determine that stress levels are within the acceptable range.

Rods and Clevises for a Natural Gas Combined Cycle Facility

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. designed and manufactured hundreds of hanger rods and clevises for a 1,250 MW natural gas combined cycle facility in Mississippi.

The rod and clevis components were made of various alloys (800H, F91, 316H, SA-387 Gr. 22) and ranged in sizes from 2″ to 4″ diameter. Taking into account the surrounding environment’s conditions, engineers designed the rods and clevises so that they can endure temperatures escalating to 1430º F. For the duration of a pull test conducted, the clevises and rods sustained loads up to 152,000 lbs. and there were no discrepancies.
