SA 516-60 Plate

Pressure vessels permit the safe storage and transfer of pressurized liquids, vapors, and gases, which make possible many industrial, commercial, and household processes. Material selection is crucial when developing these devices, as failure causes health and environmental issues. Improve pressure-containing application performance with ASME SA516-60 steel plate. 

ASME SA516 steel plate is available in three grades: 60, 65, and 70. Intended operating environment is important to consider when choosing a grade for an application. Grade 60 exhibits an ultimate tensile strength of 415 Newtons per square millimeter, whereas Grades 65 and 70 display 460 and 510 Newtons per square millimeter, respectively. Please note that all values are typical.
