2.ASTM A516 is a specification for the use of steel in weldable pressure vessels. ASTM A516 is the specification for a range of steel used to fabricate industrial pressure vessels and boilers.
3.This particular material is known for its weldability and improved notch toughness characteristics and is ideal for lower than ambient temperature service. Good machinability and forming capabilities are also a feature of ASTM A516 steels.
4.We have a global reputation for supplying high-quality pressure vessel steel plate, and our range of ASTM A516 steels is no exception. Of western European origin, we can supply plates from stock or directly from the mill.
5.We specialize in the supply of three particular steel grades of this type – please click on one of the product links below. You will be able to view details of chemical composition and mechanical properties.
ASTM A516 – Available Grades
ASTM A516 Grade 60
ASTM A516 Grade 65
ASTM A516 Grade 70
6.ASTM A516 specification steel is used throughout the oil and gas, chemical, and power generation industry and can be tested to exceed your specified requirements. HIC Testing is one such requirement. This material is commonly used in sour service/ wet h2s corrosive environments, so knowing how susceptible the material will be to hydrogen sulfide corrosion is imperative.
