ASTM A193 Grade B7
ASTM A193 Grade B7 Threaded Rods to metric and imperial sizes. We offer threaded rods with coarse, fine and extra fine threads to ASME B1.1 and B1.13M standards. These threaded rods are produced to ASME B18.31.3, B18.31.4M, DIN 975 or DIN 976 standards and full compliance to all requirements of ASTM A193 Grade B7 specification.
ASTM A193 Grade B7 specification covers requirements for high tensile alloy steel bolting material for use in high temperature or high-pressure service and other special purpose applications. It is a standard specification defining typical chemical composition, mechanical properties, hardness requirement, preferential heat treatment, product marking, certification and other requirements, suitable for bolting used in pressure vessel service, valves, flanges and fittings. ASTM A193 defines both SI (Metric) and inch-pound units.
Grade B7 is a heat-treated chromium-molybdenum low-alloy steel with minimum tensile strength requirement of 125 ksi (860 Mpa), yield 105 ksi (720 Mpa), and maximum hardness of 35HRC. Alloy Steel AISI 4140 bar stock or forging stock to produce B7 headed and non-headed bolts. A193 Grade B7 is the most commonly used Bolt specification coupled with A194 Grade 2H Nuts for Bolting Carbon Steel pipeline. A193 B7 bolting is available in metric sizes from M6 to M180 and imperial sizes from 1/4 to 7 inches, in diameter.
