Hague Fasteners now has a certificate following the Audit and Approval of its allied ISO9001:2015 QMS and in accordance with the additional requirements and material controls endorsed by the Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU Annex I, Section 3.1 and 4.3 for the supply of critical PED fasteners.
Hague Fasteners manufactures extensively for many critical industries, such as pressure vessels, subsea bolting, offshore oil & gas, chemical, construction and nuclear to name but a few, and the reassurance with regard to its material controls ensures full compliance with the stipulations of the current Pressure Equipment Directive.
Only the very best quality sourced and fully traceable mill materials are utilised in PED released bolting projects, eliminating all risks that much of the bolting and engineering sectors are plagued with due to cheap and inferior bolting grades flooding the marketplace from overseas.
Hague Fasteners is able to manufacture and supply fasteners and fixings for the pressure equipment industry in a range of sizes, materials and specifications and further work within the confines of even tighter OEM specifications from many of the world’s most highly respected oil and gas producers.
Hague’s PED approved scope of manufacture includes sizes from M3 (1/8″Dia) up to M300 (12 inch diameter) and in a complete and wide range of materials including carbon alloy steels, chrome moly (CrMo) steels, stainless steels, duplex and super duplex grades along with nickel alloys (highly corrosion resistant superalloys) and titanium alloys.
This scope allows for the manufacture of special fasteners and other bolts, nuts and fixings to global international specifications and harmonised standards such as AISI, ASTM, ASME, AMS, BS, EN, ISO, SAE and Norsok.
