2HM Heavy Hex Nut

ASTM A194 Grade 2HM heavy hex nuts are quenched and tempered alloy steel nuts and are 100% hardness tested. ASTM A194 covers carbon steel, alloy steel, and stainless steel nuts for bolts in high pressure or high temperature service. They are usually paired with A193 Grade B7M fasteners in applications where hydrogen sulfide gas exposure may lead to hydrogen embrittlement problems. Dimensional specifications are governed by ASME B18.2.2. Heavy hex nuts provide increased bearing surface area over finished nuts such as J995 Grade 5 nuts.

Governing StandardsGrade 2HM

ASTM A194 This specification covers a variety of carbon, alloy, and martensitic stainless steel nuts in the size range 1⁄4 through 4 in. and metric M6 through M100 nominal. It also covers austenitic stainless steel nuts in the size range 1⁄4 in. and M6 nominal and above. These nuts are intended for high-pressure or high temperature service, or both. Grade substitutions without the purchaser’s permission are not allowed.
ASME B18.2.2 Covers the complete general and dimensional data for the various types of inch series square and hex nuts, including machine screw nuts and coupling nuts.
ASME B1.1 UNC & UNF Class 2B Specifies the thread form, series, class, allowance, tolerance, and designation for unified screw threads.
