Pressure vessel steel plate
we can ensure that the steel we source is tailored to the needs of our valued customers.

Pressure vessel steel plate

    Pressure vessel steel plate refers to the carbon steel and low-alloy steel plate used in the manufacture of pressure vessel shells. It includes carbon steel, carbon manganese steel, micro-alloy steel, low-alloy high-strength steel and steel for low temperature. Working temperature is generally in -20 ℃ to 500 ℃, individual up to 560 ℃. 

    Which mainly refers to 16MnR steel (16 manganese capacity low-alloy steel, a type of steel), used in the manufacture of ASME code pressure vessels. Pressure vessel steel plate is a special material related to the people's livelihood of the country, is a short product of the metallurgical industry. 

    China has formed a production system with a certain production scale, increasing specifications and gradually improving quality of steel plates for boilers and pressure vessels.

Pressure vessel steel plate grades

    By adding the certain percent of chromium, nickel and molybdenum, will increase highly resistant of stainless steel plates, for to use in critical applications that require highly resistant to the environment. Such as used in food or chemical industries.

    The manufacture of pressure vessels is tightly regulated as a result of the risks involved and as a consequence the materials that can be used in vessels is also tightly specified. The most common specifications for pressure vessel steels are the EN10028 standards – which are European in origin – and the the ASME/ASTM standards which are from the US.

    We can also supply high specification pressure vessel  steel plate used in the oil and gas industry and specifically in steel plate resistant to Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC).

    While there are multiple grades of PVQ steel, ASTM A516 and ASTM A537 are most commonly used for pressure vessel applications due to their balance of strength and ductility.
