U-Bolts are industrial fasteners that have two linked arms (or legs) that expand from a curved base and are shaped like the letter ‘U’. These bolts are frequently used to support pipes or to attach a component to a pole, beam, or wall. They also add stability to the support because their ‘U’ shape is able to hold the bolt firmly in place.
U-Bolts, come in a variety of sizes and finishes to accommodate various loads, torque specifications, and environmental conditions.
U-bolts have an extended range of applications. See some examples of common U-Bolt applications below:
Firstly, U-bolts are often employed to give pipes lateral constraints. U-Bolts are the most straightforward and often utilized type of piping support for small-bore piping systems.
Secondly, U-Bolts are frequently used in plants to hold bare pipes smaller than 8 inches in diameter. They serve as a rest, guide, and hold down, as was already said. U-bolts can reduce line vibrations by providing the system with additional stability. U-Bolts are a useful option for supporting vertical elevated runs of pipe.
Although any sort of strong and resilient material can be utilized to make u-bolts, the most commonly used materials are stainless steel or plain carbon steel.
