PIPE FITTINGS FASTENERS MANUFACTURER- PIPING MATERIAL MANUFACTURER
What are fasteners?
Fasteners are tools that are usually used to hold two or more materials or objects together. They are very well known as screws, nuts, and bolts, or a similar object. Fasteners are managed to create non-permanent joints, which can be removed or dismantled without damaging the joining components. Welding is an example of creating lasting joints. Steel fasteners are normally made of Stainless Steel, Alloy Steel, and Carbon Steel.

Different types of Fasteners used in Piping and Manufacture by A.M. Engineering Works
Stud bolt, machine bolts, nuts, and washers are known as fasteners or bolting material. Bolting is the word that used to tighten/create the flange joints connection. The tightening of the flange ensures the leak-proof connection between gasket & flanges.
Stud Bolt has a thread on full-lengths or at both ends. It has three components without washers being used. If you use a washer, it will become five. Although, Sometimes additional nuts are used for hydraulic tensioning with larger size stud.
Machine Bolts have a thread at one end and hexagonal head on another. Piping bolts are used with more moderate strength flange types such as GRE/GRP, bronze. Usually, washers are used with the bolt to prevent unnecessary load to the flange.
Commonly Hex Heavy-series nuts worked with studs. The nonbearing face of a nut is chamfered, while the load Application face is finished with a washer face or may be chamfered.
A washer is a flat plate with a hole in the middle. Washers disseminate the load on flange face, Non-metallic flange needed washers due to this reason. Different types of washers are available to use, such as Flat, Splits, and Conical Springs.
