ASME SA285 Pressure Vessel Plate

ASME SA285 Pressure Vessel Plate Manufacturer

IBC Metal Group produce and export ASME SA285 pressure vessel plate to all over the world. We could manufacture all kinds of pressure vessel plate, such ASME SA203, ASME SA204, ASME SA537. And JIS G3103, JIS G3115, DIN, EN10028 and etc. This specification covers carbon steel plates of low and intermediate-tensile strengths which made by killed, semi-killed, capped, or rimmed steel practices at the producer’s option. These plates intended for fusion welded pressure vessels.

Supply Range of ASME SA285 Pressure Vessel Plates

  • Standard : ASTM A285, ASME SA285
  • Dimension : AISI, ASTM, BS, DIN, GB, JIS
  • Width : 1000mm – 3000mm
  • Thickness : 5mm – 150mm
  • Length : 3000mm -18000mm

The thickness of plates under this specification is restricted to a maximum of 2 in. [50 mm]. Plates processed from coils, with or without heat treatment or with stress relief, must meet additional requirements specified in A20/A20M. It’s important to remember that the values expressed in inch-pound and SI units can’t be seen as equivalent. they must each by handled independently. There may be inconsistencies between figures if they are taken from both systems.

General Requirements and Ordering Information

It required that plates supplied to this product specification comply with Specification A20/A20M, which specifies the testing and retesting methods and procedures, permissible variations in dimensions and mass, quality and defect repair, marking, loading, etc. A20/A20M also specifies the requirements for ordering information when purchasing plates with this specification.

This specification includes certain supplementary requirements in addition to the basic requirements. The purchaser referred to the supplementary requirements in this specification and to the detailed requirements in Specification A20/A20M for further information on how to meet end-use requirements. Coils are not eligible for this specification unless processed into finished plates. Plate manufacture involves cutting individual lengths from coils, and the processing company is responsible for operations such as decoiling, testing, inspection, conditioning, heat treatment (if required), packaging, marking, loading and certifying.

For plates produced from coil and furnished without heat treatment or with stress relieving only, three test results must be reported for each qualifying coil. Specification A20/A20M specifies further requirements regarding plates produced from coils. The requirements of this specification shall prevail if Specification A20/A20M conflict with these requirements.

Chemical Compoasition

The steel conform to the requirements as to chemical composition as given in Table 1.

Application of ASME SA285 Pressure Vessel Plate

The plate used as a weldable material in the fabrication of pressure vessels and industrial boilers using fusion welding i.e. the joining of the material by melting them together to form one. The plate offered at a maximum thickness of 50mm for all grades to ensure internal robustness. As ASTM A285 does not promote high tensile strength, we used commonly in the fabrication of storage tanks and low pressure temperature controlled vessels.


IBC (Tianjin) Industrial Co., Ltd provide the high quality of comprehensive ranges of plates that are varying differently length, standard, wall thickness and width and also heat treatment. In order to satisfy the demands of special applications to the industrialists, the plates are provided at custom-built specifications. IBC always active in order to cater the diverse needs of different buyers and help them to fulfill all their desires. Our product shipped to the ranges of industries wherein those are used various different purposes effectively. The product is well checked for durability and quality. For more information, please contact with us.
