Studbolts

 

Studbolts, or threaders bars/rods are commonly used to fasten pipe and flange fittings within a Shell and Tube or Air-Cooled Heat Exchanger. At HBS we can deliver studbolts according to DIN/ISO and ASTM/ASME standards. Some of the most common options:  

NormUnit of Measurement (size)
DIN 976Metric
DIN 2510LMetric
ASME B18.5.Metric/imperial

 *Please contact us, if you require a deviating norm for your studbolts.  

 

All of our studbolts are at least EN 10204-3.1. certified and are stamped with the logo of the manufacturer and the material identification code. All of our stud bolts are European-made. All ASME stud bolts are manufactured with standard thread as per Unified Thread Standards (UTS), and can be categorized as per following table.

 Want to protect your studbolts against oxidation, corrosion or abrasion? Make sure to protect your studbolts with one of the following base or top coatings.  

See table for all possible base coats

Base coatNote
Electro Zinc plated (Zn)Minimal against corrosion, suitable for inside. Easy torque.
Zinc-Nickel (Zn-Ni)Excellent against corrosion, suitable for outside. Easy torque.
Hot Dip Galvanized, HDG (Zn)Good against corrosion, suitable for outside. Uneasy torque.
GEOMET 500 (Zn-Al)Good against corrosion, suitable for outside. Easy torque.
