What are Stainless Steel Bolts and Nuts?

A stud bolt consists of one threaded steel rod and two (matching) hexagonal heavy steel nuts. Stud bolts and nuts are essential components of flanged joints, as they are key to seal flanged joints properly. The ASTM A194 specification covers a variety of carbon, alloy, and martensitic and austenitic stainless steel nuts. Hex heavy nuts are components of boltings sets for flanges. The ASTM A193 is the standard specification for alloy-steel and stainless steel bolts used in high-temperature or high-pressure environments or other special-purpose applications. The ASME B16.5 specification covers stud bolts and nuts for ASME flanges. Stud bolts and nuts are available in multiple diameters and lengths combinations, metric and imperial, and in a variety of materials from carbon steel to alloy, stainless and nickel alloys. The material of the hex steel nuts shall match the material of the threaded rod (generally, stud materials ASTM A193 match with nuts materials ASTM A194).

What are the Applications of Stainless Steel Nuts and Bolts?

  • Stainless Steel Bolts and nuts for water projects, water pipelines, sewage water treatment plants,desalination plants and waste water treatment plants in SS 304, SS 316 and SS 316L grades.
  • Bolts and nuts are used in several applications, with a primary function to hold things or components together. A bolt, also known as a screw, does not always have to be used together with a nut; however, a nut is always used together with a bolt.
  • The purpose of inserting bolts into other materials is to bind that material with another object. For example if one material is required to be bonded with another, a bolt could be run through these two materials and a nut on the other side could be used to secure the materials together tightly.
  • Nuts and bolts serve as the fundamental components in several construction projects as they provide strong bonds that do not break even under great amounts of pressure.
  • For companies involved in Equipment Manufacturing, Mining, Oil Refineries, Chemical manufacturing, Steel and Aluminum Manufacturing, Utilities and Transportation, and Industrial Construction.

What are the Advantages of Stainless Steel Nuts and Bolts? Difference Between Stainless Steel Bolts and Welding / Riveting

  • Light weight
  • Flexibility
  • Toughness
  • Chemically Inert
  • Resistance to Abrasion
  • Smooth surface
  • Environmental stress crack resistance
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Frost & rodent resistance
  • Hygienic safety
  • Easy & quick installation
  • Non-magnetic
  • Easy Availability
  • Inexpensive
  • Stainless Steel Bolts Have an Excellent Life Cycle
  • Better Visual appeal
  • Easier Replacement of Parts
  • In some important cases, some anti-loose measures will be taken to ensure the reliability of the nut locking. The use of lock nut is one of the anti-loose measures. The working principle of the nut is self-locking by the friction between the nut and the bolt.
  •  They are easily disassembled, as opposed to something like riveting or welding, which requires cutting.
  • They can be designed to take tension loads, unlike riveting (by tightening the bolt/nut to develop a preload, you reduce the effects of fatigue due to cyclic loading, which you can’t do with a rivet; plus, rivets can easily pull through a hole when loaded in tension).
  • Welds require heating a metal, which can change the properties in the heat-affected zone, and can also create thermal stresses. Bolts avoid this problem. You’re also not likely to start a fire (welds) or breathe toxic fumes (welds and adhesive joints) when you’re installing a bolt.
  • Bolted joints aren’t particularly sensitive to the condition of the parent material. With welds and adhesive joints, the parent material needs to be clean, free of oils, etc (and obviously, it has to be metal to weld).
  • You can put a bolt in a blind hole (one that doesn’t go all the way through the material); you can’t use a rivet.
  • Bolts are easy. Welding takes a lot of skill and a lot of time, particularly if you’re going to inspect the weld for flaws after it’s completed. But just about everybody has used a wrench.
  • Bolts offer much better joint quality than a screw, mostly because the threads are more tightly controlled.

What are the Disadvantages of Stainless steel Nuts and Bolts?

  • Difficulty of Refastening
  • Forced Precision
  • The working principle of the nut is self-locking by the friction between the nut and the bolt. However, the reliability of this self-locking in dynamic loads is reduced.
  • They require access to both sides of the joint (although this can be overcome using studs or special bolts like Hi-Loks). Welding, adhesive joints, and some types of riveting can be done with access to only one side of the joint.
  • They can become loose over time as the nut backs off (this can be addressed to some extent by using the proper preload and thread-locking features) or as the material creeps. Welding and adhesive joints don’t have this problem.
  • They require holes, which introduce stress concentrations and more failure modes; drilling the holes may create cracks which will grow over time to cause failure. Welding and adhesive joints don’t require holes. Also, welds and adhesive joints are continuous, so they don’t concentrate load like a bolt does.
  • Preload can be tough to measure accurately – it depends on the method of tightening, the friction between the threads of the bolt and the nut, etc.
  • Complexity. A bolted joint adds to a part count – a bolt, a nut, washers, thread lubricant, thread locking compound. And the bolts, nuts, and washers come in specific sizes with specific threads, with specific hole sizes and tolerances, for specific applications – if you need a high quality joint, you’ve got to keep track of all that and make sure the right bolt is used in the right place and in the right way.
  • Damage to a threaded hole is tough to replace – you can drill it out and rethread, but using a larger bolt might change your load distribution. To avoid that, you can use an insert in the parent material – basically a tube that is threaded on the outside and on the inside, but that adds complexity. (Of course, all this is related to the advantage of actually being able to disassemble and reassemble a bolted joint, so you might not actually call it a disadvantage compared to other fastening processes.)
  • Corrosion between a bolt and the parent material should be considered. This may not be a problem with welding and adhesive joints if the parent materials being welded are compatible.
  • Bolted joints require a gasket to seal a joint. A weld (if done properly) will be leak-proof.
  • Bolted joints aren’t so easy after all – I know of robots that weld, but the manual dexterity needed to install a bolt still requires a human touch. (Although if you have a job installing bolts, you might consider this an advantage!)

Sulfur Usually kept low excet for “free-machining” grades
Carbon Usually kept low.  Used in martensitic grades to increase strength and hardness

What are the Steel Pipe Sizes?

Steel pipe sizes

Pipe size is quoted as a “Nominal Pipe Size” or NPS. The origin of the NPS numbers for smaller pipes (< NPS 12) is different to the origin for larger diameter pipes. However, all pipes of a specific NPS number have the same external or outer diameter (OD). The internal diameter will vary depending on the wall thickness of the metal. The reason for this is so that the same structural supports can be used for all piping of a specific NPS number regardless of the wall thickness.

Schedules

Steel pipe schedules are a way to describe the wall thickness of the pipe. This is a critical parameter as it is directly related to the strength of the pipe and the suitability for specific applications. A pipe schedule is a dimensionless number and is calculated based on the design formula for wall thickness, given the design pressure and allowable stress.

Examples of schedule numbers are as follows: 5, 5S, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, STD, XS, and XXS—with the most common being schedules 40 and 80. As the schedule number increases, the wall thickness of the pipe increases. The schedule number of a pipe therefore defines the internal diameter, as the OD is fixed by the NPS number.
