Boiler Plates & ASTM 516 Grade 70

ASTM A516 BOILER PLATE

We have an extensive stock of ASME/ASTM A516 Boiler Plate. Our focus is in supplying very high quality plates for demanding applications in the oil and gas industry. As a result we have a large proportion of very heavy plates over 50mm, and going up to 300mm, and are able to meet significant requirements on an ex-stock basis.

Most of our high grade ASTM A516 plates have been independently tested and have an EN10204 3.2 certificate from Lloyds Register (or other globally recognised testing body). All plates have at least a 3.1 certificate.

  • A516 Grade 60 – 6 – 150 mm
  • A516 Grade 70 – 6 – 150 mm

ASTM/ASME A516 BACKGROUND

ASTM A516 is a specification for carbon steel plates for moderate and low temperature service. The plates are generally used for the construction of welded pressure vessels when an improvement in notch toughness is required.

ASTM A516 (or ASME SA516) is available in four grades, Gr55, Gr60, Gr65 and Gr70 with tensile strengths ranging from 380 MPa to 620 MPa depending on the grade. Shiv Shakti Steel Steel supplies A516 Grade 60 and A516 Grade 70. We supply ASTM A516 65 as HIC resistant plate – it is triple certified as A516 60/65/70 and meets the requirements of all three grades for that purpose.

Whilst it is possible for very thick plates (200 mm) to be produced that meet the requirements of the standard the thickest generally available plates from stock are 150mm. Dillinger Hutte are world renowned for heavy plates and have produced some of the thickest A516 plates ever rolled

ASTM A516 steel plate is killed and has a fine austenitic grain size. Plates under 40 mm thick can be supplied as rolled or normalised, whereas plates over 40 mm thick are normalised.

REASONS TO BUY ASME/ASTM A516 BOILER PLATE FROM Shiv Shakti Steel STEEL

The companies that buy from us are normally fabricators with an ASME U stamp or equivalent certification from the National Board, Lloyds, DNV etc. For many boilers lower quality steel is sufficient – for example in the Palm oil industry and in food refining. However for boilers (pressure vessels, heat exchangers, columns and towers) in the oil and gas industry our boiler plates meet the very high specifications required.

And this is where our plates stand out against Japanese and Korean steels. The steel, and the MTC’s that support the plates, are of very high quality and this makes acceptance – both at tender and during production and commissioning – by the EPC or oil major far easier.

SA 516 GR.70

Metal Ore is a leading exporter and importer of SA 516 GR.70 plates in the global trading market. These plates are widely used in a wide range of applications in both the industrial and commercial sector. The plates are made into different shapes, sizes, forms and specifications keeping in mind the requirements of customers. However, SA 516 GR.70 is one of the popular steel grades used for manufacturing different applications. The plates are known for their excellent features and properties which makes them even more demanding for a wide range of applications. We have a certified importing and exporting industry hold a large stock of such plates. Before supplying it to the customers, we make sure that all our products are defect and damage free and offer the best results under the respective areas of working. The steel plates are made available to customers as per their demand and requirement. The full name for SA516 standard is the standard specification for carbon steel, pressure vessel plates, and lower temperature. Moreover, the SA 516 grade is remarkably one of the standard steel grades having five chemical elements that are specified with the three mechanical properties. The grade does not require to be heat treated; hence it offers the best properties and features. Our aim is to provide our customers with a high quality of the product which has all the qualities that an application requires for working. The plates are widely used in different applications because of its easy to use and installation process.

A516 STEEL SUPPLEMENTARY REQUIREMENTS

The following supplementary requirements from ASTM A20 can be met by A 516:

  • S1 – Vacuum treatment
  • S2 – Product Analysis
  • S3 – Simulated Post Weld Heat Treatment
  • S4.1 – Additional Tensile Test
  • S5 – Impact Test (Charpy Notch)
  • S6 – Dropweight Test
  • S7 – Hot Tensile Test
  • S8 – UT (Ultrasonic Testing) to A435
  • S9 – Magnetic Particle Examination
  • S11 – UT to A577
  • S12 – UT yo A578
  • S17 – Vacum Carbon Deoxidised Steel

Some of the requirements are met through the mill production process whereas others such as PWHT, Impact testing and UT examination are available as additional tests.

This table provides the main features of the chemical composition of different grades A516 boiler plate steel as required by ASTM?ASME A516/A516M. It is not complete as we have not included many of the minor use cases. These may have a major impact in your application so please use this for reference purposes only and refer to your original and up to date copy of the relevant standard

We have listed the chemical and physical properties of the grades on the table below to allow for clear comparison. ASME SA 516 gr 70 has the highest tensile and yield strength of the three grades and this is due to the higher carbon content of the steel. The other principal alloying elements are the same as the other two ASME SA 516 grades.

Generally the higher the grade, in this case ASME SA 516 gr 70, the higher quality steel it is considered to be and the wider the range of possible applications. Our experience is that customers tend to choose either ASME SA 516 gr 60 or ASME SA 516 gr 70, with ASME SA 516 gr 65 being less popular. This is because the small difference between the grades mean that many heats of A16 70 can be dual or triple certified for all three grades and the small price differential means that for procurement purposes the additional cost of procuring ASME SA 516 gr 70 is small, whilst the engineering and logistical benefits can be significant.

Our steel plates are of high quality and if you check summary the sample Mill Test Certificate on the test certs page you can see that the standard requirements are comfortably exceeded.

ASME and ASTM Standards are harmonised so ASME SA 516 gr 70 is exactly the same as ASTM A 516 gr 70. On some specifications this is written as ASTM/ASME A/SA 516 gr70 or a similar combination of the same meaning.
