Fasteners for Air Pollution Control

Fasteners for Air Pollution Control

Nickel Systems supplies fasteners for air pollution control and environmental systems. Carbon Capture and Mercury Containment Equipment — like Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) Scrubbers and Bag Houses — clean up heavy emissions from chemical plants, power plants, paper mills and refineries.

You can breathe easily when Nickel Systems hardware is put to the test. Our fasteners for pollution control products hold up in harsh and corrosive atmospheres to combat toxic and dangerous gases, helping to protect the environment, humans, animals and their natural habitat.

The Importance of Quality Fasteners in Air Pollution Control Systems

Fasteners are essential to securely join different metal products for pollution control systems, ensuring each system works effectively. The industrial fasteners market is expected to reach $110.91 billion by 2030 and is growing to meet consumer demands for increased air safety. High-quality fasteners are critical in system safety, reliability, longevity and cost.

In pollution control, fasteners can:

  • Protect equipment from external contaminants: Fasteners act as a shield, safeguarding your equipment and external components from oil, gases, chemicals, dirt and debris.
  • Perform in extreme conditions: Purpose-built fasteners can provide the same level of protection in extreme temperatures, pressure and weather conditions, boosting equipment longevity and reducing repair and maintenance costs.
  • Minimize pollution: Sealing fasteners prevent the seepage of harmful pollutants into the environment, making them essential for industries where reducing environmental impact is critical.

Hastelloy® C276, AL6XN®, 2205 Duplex, 2507 Duplex and 317L Stainless Steel are common materials used by coal-fired power plants, sulfuric acid plants and other scrubber applications. We can also call other materials into action, depending on your requirements.

The Benefits of Specialty Stainless Steel Fasteners in Air Pollution Control Methods

Stainless steel fasteners are a proven choice for many air pollution control methods due to several unique advantages, including:

  • Exceptional corrosion resistance: Resistance to corrosion is one of the main reasons stainless steel remains a popular choice. Stainless steel fasteners have a thin layer of chromium oxide on their outer layer that prevents corrosion and degradation due to oxidation.
  • Impressive durability: Stainless steel fasteners have excellent tensile strength, contributing to the reliability of the equipment they secure. They’re also highly resistant to wear and tear.
  • Excellent versatility: These fasteners are versatile and aesthetically appealing, ideal for automotive and construction applications.
  • Increased longevity: As stainless steel offers exceptional durability, these fasteners can be used in various challenging conditions, from underwater to extreme weather and temperatures.

Selecting the Best Fasteners for Air Pollution Control

With many different types of fasteners, selecting the right option for air pollution control is crucial. The risk of releasing potentially harmful toxins into the surroundings means you need the highest quality and reliability. Some considerations when choosing fasteners for your application include:

  • Material selection: One of the most important considerations is a fastener’s ability to withstand the operating environment. While stainless steel is a popular choice, other corrosion-resistant alloys are common in manufacturing and industrial applications.
  • Durability and strength: Your chosen fasteners must securely hold the relevant components together, even under vibrations and other stresses. Ensure you select fasteners that meet or exceed your minimum load and strength specifications.
  • Leak prevention: Most importantly, maintaining airtight connections is essential for air pollution control systems to operate effectively. A minor leak can have significant consequences. You need a supplier you can trust to match your fasteners with the rigors of your operating environment.
  • Proven track record: You will gain more confidence knowing your chosen fasteners have operated successfully in multiple environments. Nickel Systems hardware is currently used in flue gas ductwork, sulfuric acid tanks, oxidation air inlets, cyclones and more.
