The split nut to optimize the assembly of gasketed plate heat exchangers!
Sometimes it’s ingenious little things which optimize and reduce operating costs. The split nut that we developed has been needed for a long time, but nobody has been able to make this „simple“ idea a reality, until now!
The nut described here is available in standard sizes from M6 to M39 and achieves a strength class of 12 and more! The nuts have a locking and separation prevention function in order to keep things together during assembly. The designs vary depending on the size of the nut.
The design ensures that the split nut has the same strength properties as one that isn’t split after tightening. Only a few threads are needed to undo them, which is particularly useful in hard to reach places or if the threaded rods are extremely long! We think that this nut is useful for a wide range of applications.
