Looking for Aerospace Fasteners?

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

The importance of an aerospace fastener can be best assessed by those working in aerospace manufacturing industry. These are the people who need to have proper equipment to carry on with their work and know that aerospace fasteners are the most vital elements in meeting the fastening requirements in airframes, engines and other hydraulic systems.

Do you know that the material used to create fasteners is compliant with military standards? The safe operation of an aircraft is highly dependent on the accurate selection and appropriate usage of hardware in the manufacturing process.

A regular aircraft is made of hundreds of small pieces. Therefore the aircraft builder must have thorough knowledge of the hardware necessary for building an aircraft. He should also be well versed with tracing these parts if the need arises. There are firms like Diamond Fasteners that are far ahead of their competitors in the industry. A ISO-9001:2000 and AS-9100 certified distributor, Diamond Fasteners have an extensive and exclusive range of the highest quality Aerospace Bolts that regularly exceed the general industry standards.

- It is used in light bulbs
- Used in high temperature thermometers where mercury cannot be used.
- Used in making ammonia (NH3).
- Used in missile work as a purge for components, insulators for space chambers.
- Use is explosives. Nitrogen can be used to make four different explosives. One of these is Ammonium Nitrate (N2 H4 O3). *In 1947, a shipload of Ammonium Nitrate went off in the harbour of Texas City, TX. The explosion wrecked the city so badly; it seemed that airplanes had bombed the city.
- The other three explosives made from Nitrogen are Nitroglycerin, Nitrocellulose, and Trinitrotoluene. You probably know Trinitrotoluene better by the initials TNT.
- Surprisingly, Nitrogen is used to make Laughing Gas as well.
- Used by the electronics industry as a blanketing medium when producing transistors, diodes, etc.
- Used in annealing stainless steel and other steel mill products.
- Used in drugs in large quantities.
- The oil industry uses nitrogen to increase the pressure in wells to force crude oil upward.
- Used as a refrigerant both for the immersion freezing of food products and for transportation of foods
- Liquid nitrogen is used in oil fields, to extinguish oil fires.
- Nitrogen is essential for synthesis of proteins in plants. Proteins are essential for synthesis of protoplasm, without which life would not exist
- Used by the chemical, petroleum, and paint industries to provide inactive atmosphere to prevent fires or explosions.
- Nitrogen in the air helps as a diluting agent and makes combustion and respiration less rapid.
- Used in metal working operations to control furnace atmosphere and in metallurgy to prevent oxidation of red-hot metals.
- Used to produce a blanketing atmosphere during processing of food stuff, to avoid oxidation of the food.
- It is also used when food is being canned, so that microorganisms do not grow.
- Nitrous gases are used as an inductive anaesthetic in pregnancy and pain relief such as in burn victims.
- Nitrogen is also an active component in the cyanide compound.
- Used as rocket fuel & propellants
- Used in making fertilizers.
- In ordinary incandescent light bulbs as an inexpensive alternative to argon.
- On top of liquid explosives as a safety measure
- Dried and pressurized, as a dielectric gas for high voltage equipment
- Filling automotive and aircraft tires due to its inertness and lack of moisture or oxidative qualities
- Use in military aircraft fuel systems to reduce fire hazard,
- Used during sample preparation procedures for chemical analysis.
- Nitrogen tanks are also replacing carbon dioxide as the main power source for paintball guns.
- Liquid nitrogen is used in the cryopreservation of blood, reproductive cells (sperm and egg), and other biological samples and materials.
- It is used in cold traps for certain laboratory equipment and to cool x-ray detectors.
- It has also been used to cool central processing units and other devices in computers which are over clocked and produce more heat than during normal operation.
- Liquid nitrogen is used to freeze and destroy skin growths, such as warts, keratoses and pre cancers.
- Liquid nitrogen can be used to cool concrete, which leads to better cured properties.
- Cold nitrogen gas is also used to cool reactors filled with catalyst during maintenance work. The cooling time can be reduced substantially.
- Used as a process gas, together with other gases for reduction of carbonization and nitriding.
- Used to treat the melt in the manufacture of metals.
- Used to maintain a neutral atmosphere in furnaces. Liquid nitrogen does not require pressure vessel storage.
- Some surgeries use a probe chilled with liquid nitrogen to kill small portions of malignant tissue, such as a brain tumour.
- Used to cool off magnets in manufacture of medical isotopes.
- Used in making yummy ice creams by stirring yoghurt under it.
- Used in making chalks.
- Used in high end generators.
