US-Piping-System

History of US piping system goes back to early 13 th century when wooden pipes were used. Water pipe companies in the 16 th century used bored tree trunks for transportation of water. As early as 18 th century gas was transported in wooden pipes and by the late 18 th century it was also being used to ferry oil. Infact oil was stored in wooden tanks. 

Cast iron pipes first came to use for water distribution in the city of Philadelphia,United States  in early 18 th century. The obvious reason of using it was it could carry higher water pressure.

In June 1927 the first tentative standard for Flange and Pipe fitting came into force and was known as American tentative standard b16e which was later replaced by ASA B16.5 in 1953.

Flange safety is governed by a number of regulations across countries :

MARPOL

ATEX 137 Directive 99/92/EC
ATEX 95 Directive 94/9/EC 

India- Directive 402 Gazette J8Il15,1987(partI-L 13.3) in rule 114

What is the most commonly used material for nuts and bolts?

Be it construction or any other major industry the role of nuts and bolts and other types of fasteners are critical. Thus they determine the overall strength and structure of the largest structures.  So in case you happen to have your business in the manufacturing or construction sector we are sure that you would be interested to know what the commonly used materials for nuts and bolts are. So let us understand the different types of materials used. The different types of fastener materials used Fasteners are made with   a wide variety of  of material s . These include everything from common steel to titanium, plastic and other exotic materials. Some of these materials are again separated into different grades. This is done to describe specific alloy mixtures, hardening as well as processes involved.  Apart from this some nuts and bolts are available with a variety of coatings or platings.   This is done to increase the resistance against corrosion or alter the appearan

Material Types For Flange Guard

Safety is one of the key requirements for many industries like chemicals and petrochemicals which require the transportation of hazardous chemicals. These can expose the working personnel and the equipment at the plant to considerable risks. Flange guards are safety shields which shield the working personnel and the surrounding equipment at such plants.  This is why their use has been mandatory in the industries of today. However while installing flange guards at your plant you must ensure that they of high strength, easy to install, offer great efficiency and must be of the best material which suits your need. We at   Indana Steel   being one of the leaders in manufacture and supply of different types of flange guards list some of the types of materials which are used for the manufacture guards. Flange guards: the materials used  Teflon You would usually find in the market flange guards which have a teflon coating. This helps the flange guards in increasing its effic

Properties of HSFG Bolts

Bolts are extensively used as a fastener. They serve various purposes and there may be various types of bolts. We at  Indiana Steel  being in the steel business since long and are involved in the manufacture and supply of various kinds of fasteners includes bolts. Of the various types of bolts which are in use the HSFG bolts are widely used. These are on account of the properties they have. In this blog we will explain to you what they are and their properties and benefits of using them.   HSFG bolts what they are? How they are made? High Strength Friction Grip Bolts are popularly known are HSFG bolts. They are made from bars of medium carbon steel. These bolts have great strength. Their high strength is built through the process of quenching and tempering.  This process is also known as alloying steel. Steel washers of hard steel or carburized steel are provided to evenly distribute the clamping pressure on the bolted member and to prevent the threaded portion of t
