Spring hangers/Spring supports
Besides the indicated design instructions like ASME III Subsection NF and KTA 3205.3, the Spring Hangers were subjected to an experimental test program.
The following tests were performed:
A) Quasi-static tests
B) Dynamic tests
C) Nondestructive examinations
D) Failure test
The deviation from the indications of the manufacturer before and after the tests was lower than ± 5% at vertical tension and lower than ± 6 % at diagonal tension.
The Spring Hangers passed all testes without damages.
The nominal load corrective factors for the individual
load cases are indicated on catalogue page GI 6.
