Stud Bolts Guide
In chemical and hydrocarbon industries hex Bolts and Stud Bolts are frequently used.
The Stud Bolt is simply a threaded steel rod having two hexagon nuts, whilst the hex Bolt has a head like that of a bolt. Head and nuts are both 6 sided. They can be drilled and tapped or plumbed to a specific diameter. Stud bolts and hex bolts are similar but have additional uses.
They can be used as a fastening component, either before the first thread comes into contact with the work surface or after it does so. When the first threads come into contact with the surface, they often engage a hexagonal head which engages first with a threaded shank on the other side of the bolt head. This prevents the threads from coming into contact with each other. This type of fastening is known as a low roundness, hexagonal, rotary or linear bolt.
Stud Bolts can be fastened to wood or metal and sometimes even together with other bolts. The design of stud bolts is based on the use of a threaded fastener, either by a simple side nut or a lip around the threads. The threads are pushed through the hole and the bolt is installed. The lip can be made of metal, plastic or thin sheet metal. This ensures that the bolt can be tapped or drilled easily but does not allow the threads to come into contact with each other.
Stud Bolts also comes in a variety of finishes depending on what they are being used for and the material of the bolt. Black oxide is the most common finish for stud bolts as it is corrosion resistant. There are also finishes that look similar but are far different such as oil rubbed bronze. Oil rubbed bronze is a satin-like black finish that can be hot worked. Plain steel bolts have a plain round head and these are very straight. Bolts that have a convex or elliptical head have a convex threaded end and a flat top surface.
Stud Bolts also comes in different sizes depending on the diameter and length that the bolt needs to be. The diameter of the stud bolt is usually expressed as a ratio, which means one third of the bolt's width is the height of the head of the bolt. This ratio can be changed by selecting the right stud bolt size, which depends on the application that the bolt is needed for.
Stud Bolts can also be installed using a combination of fully threaded stud bolts and a self tightening nut and a washer. The stud bolts are placed directly into the threaded rod. The washer is placed on top of the stud bolt and its washer is then screwed into the top of the threaded rod. The whole assembly is then clamped or locked together.
