SA516 grade 60, SA516 grade 70, SA516 grade 65

SA516 plate is made from carbon steel and it is used mainly in welded pressure vessels. This SA516 boiler plate material is manufactured in grades of 55, 60, 65 and 70. Today, one of the most in demand steel grades available is ASME SA 516 or ASTM A 516. SA516 grade 60 is the best type of steel available that can be used in working temperatures that are of the moderate to lower type. This grade 60 steel is widely used in the fabrication of steel pressure vessels and weldable industrial boilers. Grade 60 is normalized steel. But it is very well known for its outstanding weldability and notch toughness. This can be seen in industries such as petrochemical, gas and oil, where it is seen in use in pressurized service. SA516 grade 70 also happens to be an extremely popular grade of steel. This is also in big demand in industrial pressure vessels and boilers, for use in welded fabrication. It is also known as ASME SA516 Grade 70. This is also normalized steel and it can be seen in use in industries such as oil, gas and petrochemicals. It has improved notch toughness (which means that if there is any flaw present, this material has the ability to absorb energy.) This material is also very well known for its superb weldability. SA516 grade 65 is also used in various kinds of applications in chemical, oil and gas and petrochemical industries. It is also a carbon steel. It has excellent weldability and superior notch toughness. Due to the characteristics and specific composition of this material, it is used in the fabrication of weldable boilers and pressure vessels.

The complete name of SA516 is ‘Standard Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Carbon Steel, for Moderate-and Lower-Temperature Service’. SA516 grade 60 has a minimum elongation in 200 mm of 21% and the minimum elongation in 50mm is 25%. It has a yield strength (ksi) of 32 and a yield strength (MPa) of 220. It has a tensile strength (ksi) of 60-80 and a tensile strength (MPa) of 415-550. SA516 grade 70 has a minimum elongation in 200 mm of 17% and the minimum elongation in 50mm is 21%. It has a yield strength (ksi) of 38 and a yield strength (MPa) of 260. It has a tensile strength (ksi) of 70-90 and a tensile strength (MPa) of 485-620. SA516 grade 65 has a minimum elongation in 200 mm of 19% and the minimum elongation in 50mm is 23%. It has a yield strength (ksi) of 35 and a yield strength (MPa) of 240. It has a tensile strength (ksi) of 65-85 and a tensile strength (MPa) of 450-585. SA516 grades are in big demand, especially out of Europe, where they are used by engineers and designers. SA516 is a carbon steel that is ideal for use in conditions that are of low service or moderate. SA516 plates are used in boilers, pressure vessels, heat exchangers and other kinds of vessels that contain liquids or gases at high pressures.
