Stainless Steel Alloy 254 Nuts & Bolts

Excellent resistance at normal temperatures and also has good resistance to oxidizing and carburizing atmospheres

We manufacture finest quality of butt weld pipe fittings to meet diverse material specification. Our steel butt weld pipe fittings are extremely durable and are available in various shape such as bent,triangular, rectangular etc. Butt weld pipe fittings are ideal multiple connection of pipes and to prevent fluid leakage. Different types of fittings can minimize potential fluid handling system and enhances their over all performance

A nut is a type of fastener with a threaded hole. Nuts are almost always used opposite a mating bolt to fasten a stack of parts together. The two partners are kept together by a combination of their threads' friction, a slight stretch of the bolt, and compression of the parts. In applications where vibration or rotation may work a nut loose, various locking mechanisms may be employed: Adhesives, safety pins or lock wire, nylon inserts, or slightly oval-shaped threads. The most common shape is hexagonal, for similar reasons as the bolt head - 6 sides give a good granularity of angles for a tool to approach from (good in tight spots), but more (and smaller) corners would be vulnerable to being rounded off. Other specialized shapes exist for certain needs, such as wing nuts for finger adjustment and captive nuts for inaccessible areas.

Nuts are graded with strength ratings compatible with their respective bolts; for example, an ISO property class 10 nut will be able to support the bolt proof strength load of an ISO property class 10.9 bolts without stripping. Likewise, SAE class 5 nuts can support the proof load of an SAE class 5 bolt, and so on. A wide variety of nuts exists, from household hardware versions to specialized industry-specific designs that are engineered to meet various technical standards.

Alloy 254 is a titanium stabilized austenitic stainless steel with good general corrosion resistance. It has excellent resistance to intergranular corrosion after exposure to temperatures in the chromium carbide precipitation range of 800 – 1500°F (427 – 816°C). The alloy resists oxidation to 1500°F (816°C) and has higher creep and stress rupture properties than alloys 304 and 304L. It also possesses good low temperature toughness. Alloy 254 is the higher carbon (0.04 – 0.10) version of the alloy. It was developed for enhanced creep resistance and for higher strength at temperatures above 1000oF (537°C). In most instances, the carbon content of the plate enables dual certification.

Applications

  • Aerospace – piston engine manifolds
  • Chemical Processing
  • Expansion Joints
  • Food Processing – equipment and storage
  • Petroleum Refining – polythionic acid service
  • Waste Treatment – thermal oxidizers

Benefits

  • Higher creep stress and rupture properties when compared with 304
  • Ideal for high temperature service
  • Overcomes sensitization and intergranular corrosion concerns
  • Can be used in elevated temperature applications for ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code applications
  • Due to stabilisation the material offers better overall corrosion resistance when compared to 304/304L
  • Excellent mechanical properties
