Big Ton Springs for a 240,000 lb. Load

July 31, 2018

Rilco recently manufactured these big ton spring supports for a local refinery. These springs will be used in sets of four to support a large vertical vessel. The springs accommodate for the movement of the vessel due to thermal contraction and expansion. The big ton springs include 1'-8" square Teflon® slide plates, bonded to the carbon steel plate, to allow for movement on the surface of the support. They also include powder coated spring coils and galvanized spring casings.
