ASME B18.16.6-2017 pdf download.Prevailing Torque Locknuts (Inch Series).
1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Scope This Standard covers the complete general, dimen- sional, mechanical, and performance requirements (proof load, prevailing torque, and torque-tension) for carbon steel, inch series nylon insert locknuts of grades N2, N5, and N8 in styles NE ( 1 ⁄ 4 in. to 1 1 ⁄ 2 in.), NTE ( 1 ⁄ 4 in. to 1 1 ⁄ 2 in.), NU ( 1 ⁄ 4 in. to 3 in.), NTU ( 1 ⁄ 4 in. to 3 in.), NM (#2 to #12), NTM (#2 to #12), and hex flange ( 1 ⁄ 4 in. to 3 ⁄ 4 in.). This Standard also includes all-metal hex (#4 to 1 1 ⁄ 2 in.) and hex flange ( 1 ⁄ 4 in. to 3 ⁄ 4 in.) locking nuts of grades A, B, C, F, and G. These nut designs are designated as American National Standards. 1.2 Comparison to ISO Standards There is no ISO inch standard for these products. 2 REFERENCE STANDARDS The following is a list of publications referenced in this Standard.

All dimensions apply before coating.
5 NUT DESIGNS AND PROPERTY GRADES 5.1 Nylon Insert Locknuts Nylon insert locknuts are two-piece construction hex nuts and hex flange nuts that derive their prevailing torque characteristics from a full ring of nylon material, located and retained in the nut under its top surface. These are designated in Table 1 as property grades N2, N5, and N8 with hardness requirements in Table 2. The configuration styles are NE (Table 3), NTE (Table 4), NU (Table 5), NTU (Table 6), NM (Table 7), NTM (Table 8), and hex flange (Table 9). 5.2 All-Metal Locknuts All-metal locknuts are one-piece construction hex and hex flange nuts that derive their prevailing torque per- formance from controlled distortion of the nut threads and/or body. Hex locknuts are designated as grades A, B, and C. The dimensions are located in Table 10. Hex flange locknuts are designated as grades F and G. The dimensions are inTable 11. Table 1 identifies the material requirements for the various grades, and Table 2 identi- fies sizes and hardness requirements for the various grades. 6 CORNER FILL A rounding or lack of fill at the location where the hex corners intersect with the chamfer shall be permissible, provided the width across corners is within specified limits in the area extending from a distance equal to 17.5% of the basic thread diameter from the chamfered bearingfaceto 85% ofthe specifiedminimumhexheight. 7 CHAMFERS AND BEARING CIRCLES 7.1 Chamfer Length on Bearing Side of Nuts The length of chamfer at hex corners shall be from 5% to 15% of the nominal thread diameter. The surface of the chamfer may be convex or rounded.
