Every segment of the energy industry relies on critical fasteners in critical systems to help generate electricity for the world. Each power-generating segment, both renewable and nonrenewable, requires specialty material fasteners that meet stringent design and manufacturing standards. For example, fasteners are used in electrical equipment, turbines, motors, exhaust systems, pumping systems, and storage vessels. Because fasteners for power generation are used in harsh environments and conditions, they must be extremely durable and reliable and offer high performance and superior resistance in high-heat, high-pressure, and corrosive applications.
At U-Bolt-It, we have been supplying high-quality fasteners for the energy industry for over 30 years. We understand it is critical to select the right fastener for the right power-generating application for numerous reasons, including efficient production and safety. Failing to pick the right fastener for an application can cause a wide range of problems, such as interruption in energy production, a small leak, or even a disastrous failure. We supply an extensive line of standard nut, bolt, or fastener components for the power industry in many sizes, materials, and finishes. In addition, we can custom engineer fasteners with tight tolerances to exact drawings and requirements to help ensure the reliable energy production and safe performance. Our highly specialized fasteners can be fabricated from a variety of materials and with special coatings and protections to offer superior performance and high levels of anti-galling, heat, and corrosion resistance. No matter the energy industry segment—coal, petroleum, geothermal, solar, wind, or nuclear—we have the right fasteners for the right power generation application.
TYPES OF FASTENERS FOR POWER GENERATION
As equipment in the energy industry is often subjected to extreme environments and harsh conditions, they must be designed and built to withstand these conditions, even down to the fasteners which hold them together. Thus, high-performing fasteners are necessary to meet the requirements and standards of the power generation industry.
The following are important performance characteristics for fasteners for power generation:
- Excellent corrosion and oxidation resistance
- High tensile, shear, and fatigue strength
- Heavy-duty construction for high-strength applications
- High immunity to wear and vibration to prevent loosening
- High wear resistance
- Capable of operating under extremely harsh environments, including low and high temperatures and pressures
Certain material type for fasteners used in the energy industry are more desirable, because the demonstrate superior performance in extreme temperatures and pressures and provide excellent resistance to solvents, chemicals, steam, and gases. Some common materials used for fasteners used in the energy industry include aluminum, steel, titanium, and superalloys, such as Monel®, Iconel®, and Hastalloy®.
We provide fasteners in a multitude of materials:
- 304, 304L, 304H
- 316, 316L
- Alloy 20
- Monel 400
- Duplex 2205
- A193 B7, A193 L7
- Inconel 718, Inconel 800
Common fasteners used in the energy industry include the following:
- Hex Nuts
- Hex Head Cap Screws
- Hose Clamps
- Lock Nuts
- Socket Caps
- Security Screws
- Self-Drilling Screws
- Stud Bolts
- Pole Screws
