Energy

Every segment of the energy industry relies on critical fasteners in critical systems to help generate electricity for the world. Each power-generating segment, both renewable and nonrenewable, requires specialty material fasteners that meet stringent design and manufacturing standards. For example, fasteners are used in electrical equipment, turbines, motors, exhaust systems, pumping systems, and storage vessels. Because fasteners for power generation are used in harsh environments and conditions, they must be extremely durable and reliable and offer high performance and superior resistance in high-heat, high-pressure, and corrosive applications.

At U-Bolt-It, we have been supplying high-quality fasteners for the energy industry for over 30 years. We understand it is critical to select the right fastener for the right power-generating application for numerous reasons, including efficient production and safety. Failing to pick the right fastener for an application can cause a wide range of problems, such as interruption in energy production, a small leak, or even a disastrous failure. We supply an extensive line of standard nut, bolt, or fastener components for the power industry in many sizes, materials, and finishes. In addition, we can custom engineer fasteners with tight tolerances to exact drawings and requirements to help ensure the reliable energy production and safe performance. Our highly specialized fasteners can be fabricated from a variety of materials and with special coatings and protections to offer superior performance and high levels of anti-galling, heat, and corrosion resistance. No matter the energy industry segment—coal, petroleum, geothermal, solar, wind, or nuclear—we have the right fasteners for the right power generation application.

TYPES OF FASTENERS FOR POWER GENERATION

As equipment in the energy industry is often subjected to extreme environments and harsh conditions, they must be designed and built to withstand these conditions, even down to the fasteners which hold them together. Thus, high-performing fasteners are necessary to meet the requirements and standards of the power generation industry.

The following are important performance characteristics for fasteners for power generation:

  • Excellent corrosion and oxidation resistance
  • High tensile, shear, and fatigue strength
  • Heavy-duty construction for high-strength applications
  • High immunity to wear and vibration to prevent loosening
  • High wear resistance
  • Capable of operating under extremely harsh environments, including low and high temperatures and pressures

Certain material type for fasteners used in the energy industry are more desirable, because the demonstrate superior performance in extreme temperatures and pressures and provide excellent resistance to solvents, chemicals, steam, and gases. Some common materials used for fasteners used in the energy industry include aluminum, steel, titanium, and superalloys, such as Monel®, Iconel®, and Hastalloy®.

March 7, 2016, 4:06pm Let me put it this way: January started my 37th year in this business, (I’ll be 55 in June, so I started when I got out of high school). Nobody ever calls when you go over and above and get them out of a bind. You can fill 99 out of 100 items, and they will call and bitch about that one item. Very seldom do they let you know how you got them out of a bind., or did the extra for them, or stayed late or delivered stuff on the weekends, etc. They have come to take it for granted, but I suppose we created the monster by the service level we maintain. And service is what we have that the big guys do not. John Wilson, there at U-Bolt It, did a fantastic job for us. I figure the sizes and quantities we were requesting were a little of a shocker, but John was all over it. And we appreciate all that he did. All of these SS U-Bolts were for our nuclear plant here in Mississippi. They went on re-fuel outage a couple of weeks ago, which they do every two years. And when they go on an outage, it is wide open for about a month. Cost doesn’t matter, freight doesn’t matter, get it here, and get it here fast. I’ve been through about 10 of these outages, and they never plan ahead very well. So compliments are in order for John and whoever else there did these for us. U-Bolt It did an exceptional job and we do appreciate it. Anything else comes up like this, you will be the first on the list. Let me add this though…..I’m not totally convinced that John went out in the plant and got his hands dirty….just saying
