Question 1 :-What Are The Major Parameters You Must Address While Making A Spring Data sheet?
Answer : Major parameters are: Spring TAG, Cold load/Installed load, Vertical and horizontal movement, Piping design temperature, Piping Material, Insulation thickness, Hydro-test load, Line number etc.

Question 2 :-How To Calculate The Height Of A Variable Spring Hanger?
Answer : 
  • Select the height from vendor catalog based on spring size and stiffness class.
  • For base mounted variable spring hanger the height is mentioned directly. It is the spring height.
  • For top mounted variable spring hanger’s ass spring height with turnbuckle length, clamp/lug length and rod length.
Question 3 :-Can You Select A Proper Spring Hanger If You Do Not Make It Program Defined In Your Software? What Is The Procedure?

Answer : In your system first decide the location where you want to install the spring. Then remove all nearby supports which are not taking load in thermal operating case. Now run the program and the sustained load on that support node is your hot load. The thermal movement in that location is your thermal movement for your spring. Now assume variability for your spring. So calculate


Spring constant = (Hot load × variability)/displacement. Now with spring constant and hot load enter any vendor catalog to select spring inside the travel range.

Question 4 :-What Do You Mean By Variability? What Is The Industry Approved Limit For Variability?
Answer : 
Variability= (Hot Load-Cold load)/Hot load = (Spring Constant × displacement)/Hot load.
Limit for variability for variable spring hangers is 25%.

Question 5 :- What Is The Main Difference Between Constant And Variable Spring Hanger? When To Use These Hangers?

Answer : In Constant Spring hanger the load remains constant throughout its travel range. But In variable spring hanger the load varies with displacement.

Spring hangers are used when thermal displacements are upwards and piping system is lifted off from the support position. Variable spring hanger is preferable as this is less costly.
Constant springs are used:

  • When thermal displacement exceeds 50 mm
  • When variability exceeds 25%
  • Sometimes when piping is connected to strain sensitive equipment like steam turbines, centrifugal compressors etc and it becomes very difficult to qualify nozzle loads by variable spring hangers, constant spring hangers can be used.
