A B7 bolt is classed as a high tensile bolt. Made from ferritic steel—high chromium, magnetic stainless steel with low carbon content—these bolts are a very common choice for the securing of pressure vessels, valves, fittings and flanges. They can withstand temperatures of up to 1100°F/600°C and extremely high pressures, and are commonly matched with 2H heavy hex nuts. Here are the properties:
|Grade||Size||Tensile ksi, min||Yield, ksi, min||Elong, %, min||RA % min||HBW||HRC|
|B7||Up to 2-1/2||125||105||16||50||321 max||35 max|
|2-5/8 - 4||115||95||16||50|
|4-1/8 - 7||100||75||16||50|
