why did the author use ”for” after ”parts”

They said such sanctions could seek to target Iran's domestic energy market by making it difficult for Iran to obtain equipment and spare parts for its refineries.

in my understanding, we should use "parts of" but not "parts for"

plesase explain the result of using "for" instead of "of"

    Please note that “spare parts” is a noun phrase, which means the necessary parts for the equipment. Therefore we cannot separate “spare parts” into 2 words.

    With the above explanation I believe you can understand that – the spare parts are for its refineries.
