Grade U Setscrews for Export

We recently exported 1″ x 4″ BSW Setscrews Grade U BS 1083 to a client who was restoring old British made dryer cylinders on paper machines from pre 1970’s.

Grade U is not a popular grade in BSW but because of the amount of heat that the machines produce the client specificed Grade U, which will be safe in temperatures around 200 celcius.

Our sister company Smith Bullough manufactured these to specification in just 3 weeks which included forge, threading and heat treatment.

Riser Buoyancy Double Bolt Tension to Drg – 316SS Material

We recently produced in our factory at Smith Bullough a part for the Offshore Industry. Tensioned risers (TTRs) have been used for deepwater applications in the Gulf of Mexico, offshore West Africa, and offshore Southeast Asia. Dry tree riser systems attached to floating production units such as spars, tension leg platforms (TLPs), and deep‐draft semisubmersibles are continually being considered for future developments, and designs have been developed for ultradeepwater. TTRs are complex dynamic structures, and the design of these riser systems is primarily governed by loading from the environment and the floater motions.

The assemblies are made from 2 riser bars, 2 studbolts and 8 full nuts.

The client wanted Western European Material with full traceability. This is no problem for us with our increased manufacturing capacity and knowledge of traceable materials to the original billets.
