Heat-Treated Alloy Studs, Bolts, and Threaded Bars
* HEAT-TREATED ALLOY STUDS, BOLTS AND THREADED BARS
Tap end and double end studs are not available from stock. They available only on special order.
*For bar sizes over 3-1/2 in. to 4 in., inclusive, the carbon content may be 0.50 pct. max.
** Any alloy steel capable of meeting the tensile requirements of Specification A354 may be used.
Commonly used are the following grades of heat-treated alloy steel for high-pressure or extreme temperature service in diameters of 1/2 in. to 2 in., inclusive. Other grades and other diameters are available on special order.
ASTM A354, Grades BC and BD - heat-treated alloy steels for applications at normal atmospheric temperatures where high strength is required.
ASTM A193, Grade B16 - a heat-treated chromium-molybdenum steel widely used for medium high-temperature service.
ASTM A193, Grade B7 - a heat-treated chromium-molybdenum-vanadium steel for high-pressure, high-temperature service.
ASTM A320, Grade L7 - This grade is intended for low-temperature service down to minus 150ºF and has a minimum Charpy impact value of 15 ft-lb at this temperature. Sizes 2-1/2 in. and under.
ASTM A320, Grade L43 - The same properties offered by Grade L7 in sizes up to 2-1/2 are obtainable up to 4 in. in Grade L43.
