Oil and gas production industry fasteners

There’s no denying that the machinery used in the oil and gas industry is really put through the wringer, exposed to a variety of extreme conditions, from corrosive environments to high pressures and temperatures. 

That’s why you need to be able to rely on the services of your supplier and the quality of the high-criticality fasteners used to hold it all together.   

Anything less than the highest standard of materials and manufacturing could have potentially catastrophic consequences, risking not only your operation but the safety of your staff. 

During an emergency or stoppage caused by issues with your machinery and equipment, your business is at the mercy of your fastener supplier. Choosing the wrong company to handle it could end up causing unnecessary downtime, costing you more due to volatile oil prices.  

In this article, we explore the reasons why high-criticality fasteners from Wulfrun are ideal for the oil and gas industry, and why our clients choose us to manufacture their critical components time and time again. 


Why Wulfrun are the best supplier of fasteners for the oil and gas industry

At Wulfrun, we’re aware that every business, especially those in the oil and gas industry, has their own unique specification and quality requirements when it comes to their high criticality fasteners. 

That’s why we offer a wide range of specialist products, materials and treatments to ensure you receive high integrity fasteners that are perfectly suited to your requirements.  


Specialist products tailored for oil & gas usage

Our special bolts, screws, plugs and nuts are made to order and can be manufactured to adhere to any standards using any material grade you require, including stainless steel, carbon and alloy steels and more. 


Additional services 

Strength and versatility are key, and failure isn’t an option. 

Our additional services are designed to enhance and alter our fasteners to increase strength and versatility, ensuring that they’re ready to withstand anything you can throw at them. The four additional services our team offer include: 


Unique threaded forms

A unique solution for unique machinery. We’re equipped to manufacture fasteners in a range of threaded forms, such as UNC, BSF and more.


Heat treatment 

Our wide range of case treatments, including hardening and tempering, can be carried out on any material you require to improve the longevity of your components and help to protect them from salt damage and rust.



To get the job done, some fasteners need a little extra touch. Our component plating is available in a variety of materials to boost versatility and strength, including zinc and xylan. 


Rigorous testing 

To prove our fasteners are up to the task, nothing leaves our warehouse without passing a series of rigorous tests, including elevated tensile testing, chemical analysis, proof load testing and more.
