Pressure Vessel Quality (PVQ) Steel Plates

Pressure Vessel Quality (PVQ)

Boiler and pressure vessel grades are made of fine grain steel, with high impact resistance

Factors considered when designing boilers and pressure vessels include the size and weight of the vessel and its contents,  internal and external forces, ambient and operational temperatures, stresses, corrosion, etc. 

Boiler and pressure vessel grade steel comes in a variety of grades and thicknesses, and are designed to contain the large internal pressure.

These grades are fully killed, fine-grained carbon-manganese steels produced by hot rolling and normalizing.  The yield strength of these grades is designed to leak before exploding.

You can rely on Steel Warehouse to process pressure vessel quality (PVQ) steel plates at competitive prices.
