ASTM SA 516 GR 60 Plates is a boilerplate to ASTM A516/A516M. This is the ASME/ASTM standard for pressure vessel steel plate for use at low and medium temperatures; typically where ameliorated Charpy V-notch testing is paramount. Simply put these plates are remain tough when holding low-temperature fluids or gases under pressure.
It is primarily intended for use in welded pressure vessels where notch toughness is consequential. These grades cover a range of tensile strengths from 55 – 90 MPa and this multifariousness explicates much of the designation’s popularity.
SA 516 GR 60 Plates designation steel is utilized throughout the oil and gas, chemical, and power generation industry and can be tested to exceed your designated requisites. HIC Testing is one such requirement as this material is utilized commonly in sour accommodation/ wet h2s corrosive environments and so kenning how susceptible the material will be to hydrogen sulfide corrosion is imperative.
