Torsion Springs

Torsion springs are helical springs that exert a torque or rotary force and are subject to bending stresses. Torsion springs should always wind up from the free position – never to unwind from the free position. As they wind up, torsion springs reduce in diameter and their length becomes longer. Such springs should be supported over a rod whenever possible. Some spacing should remain between coils to minimize friction which can alter torque and deflection.

The History of Katy Spring

The history of companies is built by many short stories; some boring, some not. We’re going to try and tell the not-so-boring ones (in our humble opinion) about Katy Spring & Mfg., Inc.; a company in Katy Texas that started with a conversation that ended something like this; “Why not.”

These are the stories about Katy Spring, small bits of a bigger story that started in 1999. The stories are still unfolding new chapters every day, thanks to our wonderful customers. It’s written for our customers and future customers so that they can get to know our company, our employees, some historical background and philosophy a little better.

The stories are not told in chronological order. This blogis more of a “Readers Digest” about Katy Spring, written in whatever random order they appear. So without further ado, let’s get started with the next read which is titled; Harvey

So many individual stories coming from our area about one of the costliest storms to ever hit Houston, Katy and the entire area as Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall over 100 miles from here, dumped more than 25 inches of rain on a very widespread area of Houston.

The Katy Spring is a very fortunate one.  The plant and offices did not receive any water. Thankfully, our detention pond was just recently doubled in size as a new building was constructed on the other side of Katy Spring’s 20 acre property just this year. The water did come up to the foundation of the shop.

Employees could not get to work because of impassible roadways; however Katy Spring resumed full operations after just being closed 2 days.  In comparison, Katy schools did not resume operations for 2 weeks.

Unfortunately, 2 Katy Spring employees were displaced because of flooding and Katy Spring quickly acted to help both families.

Most of Katy took on over 30 inches of rain and was considered one of the higher-impact areas mainly in whats considered New Katy which is close to the 2 reservoirs; Addicks and Barker dam.

Many of homes were affected by the dams reservoir backing up because the spillway could not empty water fast enough. These areas are still cleaning up and will be for quite some time.

Katy Spring experienced 16 inches or rain during the tax day flood in 2015. That amount of rain fell in just 2 days. The detention was smaller and still allowed the plant and offices to be spared of flooding.
