An engineered high temperature resistant steelAlloy 330 Hex Bolt

Alloy 330 hex head bolts are specifically designed for high temperature furnace applications such as vacuum furnaces, heat treating and brazing applications. The most prized trait of alloy 330 is its ability perform under cyclic conditions of temperature extremes from heating and cooling; as well as in alternate carburizing and oxidizing atmospheres. An austenitic, nickel-chromium-iron-silicon alloy, 330 hex head bolts also offer industry a low coefficient of expansion, excellent ductility, and high strength.

Benefits & Corrosion Resistance

  • Resistance to thermal shock from repeated quenching
  • High level of resistance to oxidation and carburization
  • Ability to handle thermal cycling
  • Provides resistance to scale formation up to about 2000°F
  • Good resistance to nitrogen-containing atmospheres where the oxygen content is low
  • High nickel content of 34-37% provides high resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking and embrittlement

Applications for Alloy 330 Hex Head Bolts

  • Alloy 330 hex bolts are often used in furnaces, thermal processing and heat treating applications.
  • Gas turbine components and boiler fixtures used in power generation often use Alloy 330 hex head bolts.
  • Because of its resistance to nitrogen rich environments, alloy 330 hex bolts are used extensively for components handling cracked ammonia.

Alloy 330 Hex Head Bolt Features and Benefits

It is important to differentiate between a alloy 330 hex head bolt and hex head cap screw. Often people assume they are the same, but they are actually very different fasteners in terms of how they are manufactured, as well as from an application perspective. Regardless of your choice, alloy 330 hex heads offer strong, stable joints because of their large head service. 

The Hex Comparison

Hex Head Bolts

Hex Head Cap Screw
  • Hex bolts have a flat end and lack the washer face under the head.
  • Appropriate for when mechanical properties are more important than dimensional tolerances.
  • Features flat washer facing under the bolt head.
  • Also called a finished hex bolt. 
  • Has tighter tolerances on the body dimensions. 
  • Best used for precise applications where tight tolerances on the body dimensions are required.
