Helical compression springs basically are mechanical devices which store and release energy. They are used in a wide variety of applications where predictable flexibility is desired. Here at Barber Spring we specialize in large helical compression springs for use in: Actuators, Valves, Snow Removal, Railroad,
Actuators & Valves: Actuators in the most basic definition are motors for moving or controlling a system. Our springs are used in a variety of industrial uses in the actuator field. Most commonly, a spring canister/piston arrangement is used to create a linear actuator that can works as an on/off switch for a mechanical system.
In addition, our springs are used in the valve industry where large forces are needed to shut off and open up pipe lines and fluid flow systems. Our springs make their way into safety release valves as well. These valves are designs to stay shut until a critical pressure level in the fluid system is reached. Once this point has been reached the spring is designed to compress and release pressure to prevent damage and catastrophic failure.
