2017 NACE Corrosion Conference & Expo

Atlanta Rod & Manufacturing is excited to be exhibiting at the 2017 NACE Corrosion Conference & Expo in New Orleans March 26th – 30th.

CORROSION is the world’s largest corrosion conference and exposition and will welcome more than 6,000 corrosion engineers, scientists, researchers, technicians, asset owners, inspectors, and other professionals from over 60 countries across the world.

This year will be our first attending the show and we look forward to seeing some familiar faces and developing new relationships in an exciting industry.

Atlanta Rod manufactures 100% domestic stainless steel nuts, bolts and studs to be used in applications where corrosion is an issue. We also work with specialty alloys used in corrosive environments such as Monel 400 and K500, Nitronic 50 and 60, Hastelloy, Inconel, Duplex and many more.

Come by and see John and Chase at booth # 754!

AIS Approved Stainless Bolts and Nuts

Atlanta Rod manufactures domestic stainless steel bolts and nuts that meet all AIS requirements for federally funded waterworks projects.

The American Iron and Steel (AIS) provision requires Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) assistance recipients to use iron and steel products that are produced in the United States. This requirement applies to projects for the construction, alteration, maintenance, or repair of a public water system or treatment works.

Often people looking to procure domestic stainless parts run into difficulty if they are used to purchasing standard off the shelf import fasteners. Atlanta Rod & Manufacturing can provide your waterworks project 100% domestic melt and manufacture 304 and 316 Stainless steel nuts and bolts from 3/8’’ to 2 ½’’ diameter.

Atlanta Rod can also manufacture your specialty fasteners from a variety of corrosion resistant materials used in the water industry including Duplex 2205, Duplex 2507, Monel 400 and many more.

SHEP Project

SHEP Project

The Savannah River Port in Savannah, Georgia is undergoing a massive construction project that will deepen the shipping channel by seven feet, and extend it by seven miles. This is one of the most important  major construction projects that is currently going on in our home state. A deeper shipping channel allows for fewer and larger ships to move the same amount of goods in and out of our country. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers calculates that this project will save our nation $213 million every year in transportation costs.

Atlanta Rod is thrilled to participate in the project. So far we have manufactured over 40,000 lbs of domestic 316 stainless and 2507 Super Duplex bolts and nuts all manufactured in Georgia. We’ve provided full traceability and provided stringent in-house testing to ensure each lot of domestic bolts meets the project requirements. The bolts and nuts are from 5/8″ diameter up to 2″ diameter and all packaged and labeled per job site requirements.

Domestic F594 Hex Nuts

Domestic F594 Hex Nuts can be a difficult item to find especially in larger diameters but Atlanta Rod has you covered.

ASTM F594 covers the chemical and mechanical requirements for stainless steel nuts in diameters ranging from 1/4″ to 1-1/2″ inclusive and for use with fasteners conforming to ASTM F593. These nuts are for general purpose usage, and are available in seven alloy groups.

F594 Nuts are used typically in applications were corrosion may be an issue such as waste water, chemical plants, ship building, nuclear, paper and pulp, etc.

Atlanta Rod hot forges all of our parts from our facility in Lavonia GA. On smaller diameters (1/2’’ and lower) a cold headed part may be preferred as they are a commonly stocked item. On larger diameters, especially ¾’’ and up we can provide extremely competitive pricing and lead times.

If you are having trouble finding domestic F594 Nuts or would like to see how the pricing you’ve been receiving stacks up give us a call today at 800-633-6794 or email your inquiry to sales@atlrod.com

Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project

Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project

The Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project is being built near Corpus Christi, Texas on over 1,000 acres. A 23-mile pipeline that is 48” in diameter is being built to transport natural gas to the facility, where it can be converted into LNG through the process of liquefaction. Atlanta Rod was chosen to manufacture special high strength 17-4 stainless anchor bolts for this project. In 2016, we manufactured over 15,000 lbs of M56 diameter bolts and forged nuts that were rushed to the jobsite to keep pace with construction. Stringent testing requirements meant that these bolts and nuts required multiple tensile tests, proof-load testing, and charpy impact testing to ensure that 100% of the fasteners conformed to the project specifications.

Goethals Bridge Project

Goethals Bridge Project

The Goethals Bridge connects Elisabeth NJ to Staten Island NY.  The original bridge is a relic of the roaring 1920’s.  This extreme high traffic area sees over 15 million automobile passengers annually, and has been there since 1928. The bridge needed to be replaced with something that can withstand the high-volume traffic and the marine environment.

A new cable-stayed bridge is now being built. This new bridge will have 12-foot travel lanes in each direction. It will also allow for pedestrians and bicycles. Atlanta Rod was chosen to manufacture over 40,000 lbs. of 100% domestic 316 fasteners for the new bridge construction project. The fast-paced construction schedule meant that we had to ship several emergency shipments to keep the construction schedule. The domestic 316 rods were all roll threaded in-house. We also forged over 5,000 pieces of the domestic 316 F594 Hex nuts in-house to customer specification. The studs and nuts were all tested in our in-house laboratory.

Herbert C. Bonner Bridge

The Herbert C. Bonner Bridge is in North Carolina’s beautiful Outer Banks. It carries approximately 2 million automobile passengers annually from Bodie Island to Pea Island, North Carolina. The original bridge was built in 1963, and needed to be replaced with something that could withstand the region’s harsh coastal environment.

A new 2.7-mile bridge is being built to span the Oregon Inlet. This bridge has a 100-year life-span and features high durability concrete, stainless steel rebar, and 17-4 stainless swedge bolts. Atlanta Rod was chosen to manufacture over 75,000 lbs. of 100% domestic 17-4 stainless swedge bolts in 2 ½” and 3” diameters. We also manufactured all the domestic 17-4 stainless heavy hex nuts to go with the bolts. All of the heavy hex nuts were precision forged in-house with machined threads, assembled onto the bolts, and shipped directly to the jobsite.
