Pipe Fasteners

A pipe fastener is a device that mechanically joins or affixes two or more pipes together. Pipe fasteners cover both high tensile and mild steel bolts, clamps, nuts, screws, washers, studs, pins etc. All types of fasteners are used for both industrial and residential pipe fittings. Pipe fasteners are used in almost all types of industries. They are made of various materials and are available in various shapes, sizes and designs.

Buying Tips

  • Proper care should be taken to see that the various types of pipe fasteners like screws, bolts, studs, clamps and nuts fit well with the pipes of various sizes.
  • As most pipe fasteners are cast of metal, the quality and finish of the metal is very important.
  • The pipe fasteners should be well polished or coated so that they prevent rusting when fixed on pipelines.
  • The color of the pipe fastener should also complement the color of the pipe in which it is to be fitted.
Thus, the factors that are to be considered are as follows:
  • Type of fastener
  • Size of the fastener
  • Size of the pipes
  • Materials
  • Thickness
  • Easy installation
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Good Finish
  • Durability
  • Good clasping facility etc.

Materials used:
