Stud bolts are available in ASTM Grades B7, L7, B16, B16M, L7M, B8, 660 and B8M; they are also available exotic metals such as Monel, Titanium, Inconel, Alloy 20, and Hastelloy, 17-4PH. These studs are also available with industrial coatings such as SermaGard, Xylan, PTFE, Fluoropolymers and other coatings.
Stud Bolts for Pressure-Temperature Piping
- Continuous Thread Studs (Fully Threaded Studs)
Stud bolts are threaded end to end and are often used for flange bolting with two nuts on either end.
There are two types of these studs.
- Type one – usually for general purpose; the length of stud is measured from end to end. Threads are UNRC-2A.
- Type two – studs for high temperature pressure piping. These studs are made to dimensional standard requirements of ANSI B16.5 the length of this stud is measured from first thread to first thread, exclusive of points. Threads are UNRC-2A for sizes 1 inch and under and 8 UNR-2A for sizes over 1 inch. The length of stud bolt, measured parallel to the axis, is the distance from first thread to first thread. First thread is defined as the intersection of the major diameter of the thread with the base of the point.
