Riser Systems

Tecoustics has a full range of solutions to meet any riser specification.  Through consulting, our solutions are tailored to the customer’s needs and requirements.  Our full cycle design team can provide a complete design package including pipe stress analysis, structural loading, thermal analysis, riser layouts, branch line analysis and custom bracket design.  Through experience, our project management and design team can bring you cost cutting solutions that outperform competitive designs.  As a benefit to our customers, we also offer design and consulting services at the tender stage to increase coordination between trades and ease installation burden.

Mason Spring Riser System

Tecoustics has built a reputation offering spring riser systems, a state of the art vertical riser system that incorporates spring mounts strategically placed to support the riser, isolate the system from structure and allow for thermal expansion and contraction.  This support design eliminates many of the problems associated with traditional expansion compensator, or expansion loop designs.  The spring support systems can be designed to utilize a central isolated anchor which remains neutral during operation, or a totally free-floating system with spring supports only.  A spring riser system allows the load at each support point to be known under all conditions (empty, full, and operating at both temperature extremes).

With a Spring Riser System, you eliminate:

  • Costly and labour intensive expansion loops
  • Excess transmission paths to structure
  • Potential failure of expansion compensators
  • Higher horsepower equipment required to overcome additional friction and direction changes from expansion loop designs

While gaining:

  • A thermal, vibration and seismic solution
  • A system which is neutral on the anchor at operating
  • A piping system with no locations for failure
  • Reduced labour
