Stainless steel Serrated Flange Nut
Stainless steel Serrated flange nuts are hex flange nuts with a serrated bearing surface. The nut turns freely until the serrations contact and displace material on the mating surface as the nut is tightened; less torque is needed to install than remove because the gripping action of the serrations create a ratchet-type locking feature that is resistant to vibration
Used in commercial and industrial applications, serrated flange nuts are also called: serrated face lock nuts, serrated tooth nuts, spin lock nuts, whiz lock nuts.
Because the serrations must contact the mating surface to "lock", serrated flange nuts are not used with flat or lock washers.
Serrated flange nuts are reusable. However, always follow the manufacturer's recommendations regarding nut reuse, thread lubricants and torque values.
Stainless steel Flange Lock Nuts
Flange lock nuts are one piece, all-metal prevailing torque hex flange nuts. Being all-metal, they are not subject to the temperature and chemical limitations of non-metallic (such as nylon) insert type lock nuts.Flange lock nuts are also called: flange style automation lock nut, prevailing torque flange nuts, deformed thread flange lock nuts.
Flange lock nuts need to be fully engaged with the bolt/screw threads for the locking feature to be effective. To ensure full thread engagement, bolts/screws should be long enough to allow at least two full threads to extend beyond the nut face after tightening. Conversely, there should be two full threads exposed on the head side of the nut to make sure the nut can be properly tightened.
The Some Of The Advantages of the Stainless steel Flange Nuts are:
1. Needs a greater amount of torque to loosen than to tighten the flange nut.
2. Enlarged flange base circulates heavy pressure evenly giving a secure hold.
3 There is no need of the additional washer to fasten the nut.
4. Reduce the bearing stress on the joint.
5. It acts as a locking nut by overcoming the vibrations.
The Applications of the Stainless steel Flange Nuts are:
1. Assembling of Automotive parts.
2. In Marine applications.
3. In assembling of Industrial equipment or parts.
4. In joining metal sheets or metal parts.
5. Heavy industrial Applications.
