Maintenance & Repair: Tightening Bolts

Sleeved plug valves are critical to many chemical and refining applications, but they often face harsh conditions. In the next issue we include an article that explains the role they play and the importance of good repair, and then addresses a simple tool that can make those valves last longer: adjusting the bolts to ensure better leak protection.

Materials Q&A: Discontinuation of Grade 4 Nuts

Also in for the winter issue: Our resident materials expert explains why ASTM A194 Grade 4 nuts are being discontinued. He outlines what thinking went into the step, what the standards bodies have said and what it means going forward as far as Grade 7 nuts.
