These compact spring supports were custom-designed to support a heat exchanger at an oil refinery. They were designed to support loads up to 12,000 lb. and a movement of 0.039”, with space limitations of 3″ in height. These compact springs are fabricated from carbon steel and utilize engineered Belleville (disc spring) washers. 25% glass-filled (PTFE) slide plates are bonded to the top of the load flange and provide a low coefficient of friction.
|Type:||Compact Spring Supports|
|Material:||A-36 Carbon Steel | HDG | Stainless Steel|
|Design:||0.25″ Movement (upward) | 5,000 lb. Load|
|Testing:||Load and Travel Testing|
These compact spring supports were custom designed to support a storage tank at a facility in Texas. The housing was fabricated from A-36 carbon steel and hot-dipped galvanized to protect them against corrosion. The disc springs are engineered using the stainless steel Belleville disc springs designed for large loads but small movements. In this case, the springs are designed to support a load of 5,000 lb. and movement of 0.25″ (upward). Each assembly underwent load testing prior to shipment.
|Type:||Compact Spring Supports (Disc Springs)|
|Material:||Carbon Steel | PTFE, 25% Glass-Filled|
|Design:||Movement: 1/32″ to 1/4″ | Load: 12,000 lb.|
|Testing:||Standard Spring Rate & Calibration Tests|
These compact spring supports were custom designed for an oil refinery expansion project. They will be installed underneath a heat exchanger supporting a load up to 12,000 lb. The space available was limited to 3″ in height and the movements ranged from 1/32″ to 1/4″. These compact springs are fabricated from carbon steel and utilize engineered Belleville (disc spring) washers. 25% glass-filled (PTFE) slide plates are bonded to the top of the load flange and provide a low coefficient of friction.
