ASTM A516 Steel

ASTM A516 is a PVQ carbon steel plate primarily used for welded pressure vessels at moderate or lower temperatures. Gnee is available in four rolled or normalized grades: 55, 60, 65, and 70; standard and heavy (3″ or greater) plate thicknesses are available; and certification can be guaranteed to meet the specific criteria of the required A516 grade.

ASTM A516 is a standard specification for carbon steel pressure vessel plates suitable for use in low to medium temperature environments. It covers plates primarily used for welded boilers and pressure vessels where improved notch toughness is important.

A516 steel has good formability and low-temperature impact toughness, making it suitable for a wide range of manufacturing processes. It maintains high strength and corrosion resistance even at elevated temperatures. Typical applications include storage tanks, heat exchangers, boilers, pressure vessels, separators, compressors, and more.

A516 Grade 55: This has a minimum yield strength of 55 ksi (380 MPa) and tensile strength of 75-90 ksi (515-620 MPa). It offers good formability and weldability.

A516 Grade 60: This grade has higher strength with a minimum yield of 60 ksi (415 MPa) and tensile strength of 80-100 ksi (550-690 MPa). It is the most commonly used grade.

A516 Grade 65: This grade has even higher strength with a minimum yield of 65 ksi (450 MPa) and tensile strength of 85-110 ksi (585-760 MPa). It is usually used for higher pressure applications.

A516 Grade 70: This is the highest strength grade with yield strength of 70 ksi (485 MPa) and tensile strength of 90-125 ksi (620-860 MPa). It enables lighter constructions but has reduced weldability.
