A537 STEEL PLATE
A537 plate steel is heat-treated. As a result, it displays greater yield and tensile strength than the more standard A516 grades. A537 steel plate is ideal for both in boilers and pressure vessels, and is used in the oil, gas and petrochemical industry.
The ASTM A537 specification is the Standard Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Heat-Treated, Carbon-Manganese-Silicon Steel used in the applications of fusion welded pressure vessels and structures. Typical applications are pressure vessels designed for moderate and lower-temperature service requiring excellent notch toughness as well as API 650 and API 620 storage tanks. Class 1 material is available as Normalized and Class 2 is available as Quenched & Tempered plates.
