Hastelloy B3 Rivets

Fasteners are essential components used to join or secure two or more objects together. They are widely used in various industries and applications to create reliable and durable connections. Fasteners come in different forms, such as screws, bolts, nuts, and rivets, each designed for specific purposes and offering unique advantages.

What are Rivet Fasteners in Detail?

Rivet fasteners are a type of mechanical fastener used to create permanent and strong connections between materials. They consist of a smooth cylindrical shaft, known as the shank, and a formed head on one end. During installation, the rivet is inserted into pre-drilled holes in the materials to be joined. The shank is then deformed or “bucked” using specialized tools, creating a secure and permanent connection.

Rivet fasteners have several advantages:

Strength and Reliability: Rivets provide excellent strength and reliability due to their unique installation method. The deformation of the rivet’s shank creates a tight and permanent connection that can withstand heavy loads and resist loosening or disassembly.

Vibration Resistance: Rivets offer exceptional resistance to vibration and movement, making them suitable for applications subjected to constant motion or stress. The secure and tight connection provided by rivets prevents components from loosening or separating due to vibrations.

Corrosion Resistance: Rivets made from corrosion-resistant materials, such as Hastelloy B3, exhibit excellent resistance to corrosive environments. This makes them ideal for applications exposed to harsh conditions, including chemicals, moisture, and high temperatures.

Enhanced Aesthetics: Rivets can enhance the aesthetics of assembled structures by providing a clean and finished appearance. The visible formed heads of rivets can add a decorative element to the design while maintaining structural integrity.

Mechanical Specification of Hastelloy B3 Rivets

Hastelloy B3 rivets, manufactured by Shivalik Forged & Fittings, possess the following mechanical specifications:

Tensile Strength: Hastelloy B3 rivets typically have a tensile strength ranging from 760 MPa to 930 MPa. This high tensile strength ensures the rivets can withstand substantial loads and provide reliable and durable connections.

Yield Strength: The yield strength of Hastelloy B3 rivets is approximately 330 MPa to 400 MPa. The yield strength represents the point at which the rivet begins to deform plastically under stress, ensuring it maintains its integrity and dimensional stability.

Elongation: Hastelloy B3 rivets exhibit a significant elongation of approximately 45% to 55%. This property allows the rivets to withstand deformation and accommodate movement or stress without failure.

Corrosion Resistance: Hastelloy B3 rivets offer exceptional resistance to a wide range of corrosive environments, including acids, alkalis, and reducing agents. They are particularly resistant to hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, and phosphoric acid, making them suitable for applications where corrosion resistance is critical.

Applications of Rivets

Rivets find applications in various industries and sectors, including:
Hastelloy C22 Nuts and Boltss

How Hastelloy B3 Benefits the Quality of Rivets

Hastelloy B3 offers several benefits that enhance the quality and performance of rivets:

Corrosion Resistance: Hastelloy B3 is highly resistant to corrosion caused by various aggressive chemicals, including acids, alkalis, and reducing agents. This corrosion resistance ensures the long-term durability and reliability of the rivets, even in harsh environments.

High Strength: Hastelloy B3 rivets exhibit high strength, allowing them to withstand heavy loads and provide secure connections. Their excellent mechanical properties make them suitable for demanding applications where strength and reliability are essential.

Temperature Resistance: Hastelloy B3 maintains its mechanical properties over a wide temperature range, from cryogenic temperatures up to 1040°C (1900°F). This temperature resistance allows the rivets to maintain their strength and integrity in extreme operating conditions.

Weldability: Hastelloy B3 rivets are easily weldable, providing flexibility in assembly and fabrication processes. This allows for convenient integration into various structures and components.

Types of Rivets and Pointers

There are different types of rivets available, each suited for specific applications:

Solid Rivets: Solid rivets are the traditional type of rivets, consisting of a solid cylindrical shaft and a formed head. They are widely used in structural applications that require high strength and reliability.

Blind Rivets: Blind rivets, also known as pop rivets, are designed for applications where access is limited to one side of the materials being joined. They are easy to install and provide a secure connection without requiring access to both sides of the assembly.

Tubular Rivets: Tubular rivets consist of a hollow cylindrical shaft and are commonly used in applications where light weight and low cost are priorities. They find usage in leather goods, garments, and light-duty applications.

Drive Rivets: Drive rivets have a solid shank with a round, flat head on one end and a tubular, flared tail on the other end. They are typically installed by hammering or driving the tail into the shank, creating a secure connection.
