ASTM A516 is Recommended for
Carbon steel plates for pressure vessels at moderate and lower temperature service.
Meant mainly for service in welded pressure vessels where improved notch toughness is required. Steel Warehouse supplies ASTM A516 grade 55, 60, 65, & 70 steel.
We will be glad to help you select the exact grade for your needs.
ASTM A516 Grades:
ASTM A516 Specifications
- Strength, Yield Strength ksi (MPa), Tensile Strength ksi (MPa): Strong, 70 (480)
For higher strength and lower weight, consider Advanced High-strength Steels
- Formability: % Elongation: Basic, 20%
For better formability consider Drawing Steel
- Joining – Fair
Design and welding must account for stresses
- Corrosion Resistance – Good
Galvanizing will slow corrosion. For longer life in harsh chemical conditions, consider Galvanized or Coated Steel
- Chemistry – Medium carbon, medium manganese, with silicon
- Cost – Higher.
Good when thinner or stronger steels will add value.
