ASME SA537 Pressure Vessel Plates

We produce ASME SA537 Pressure Vessel Plates for decade years. IBC (Tianjin) Industrial Co., Ltd supply and export all sizes & thickness & standards pressure vessel steel plates to all over the world. Such Canada, South America, Europe, Africa, as well as Asia, etc. The ASME SA537 specification covers heat treated carbon steel plates for pressure vessel applications. This steel which is a carbon, manganese and silicon alloy, supplied in the normalised condition for Class 1 plates and quenched and tempered for Class 2 & 3 plates. Contact with IBC for more information.

Scope of ASME SA537 Pressure Vessel Plates

This specification covers heat-treated carbon manganese-silicon steel plates intended for fusion welded pressure vessels and structures. Plates furnished under this specification are available in the following three classes:

ASME SA537 Pressure Vessel Plates

The maximum thickness of plates furnished under this specification is 4 in. [100 mm] for Class 1 and 6 in. [150 mm] for Class 2 and Class 3. The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system used independently of the other without combining values in any way.

General Requirements and Ordering Information 

3.1 Plates furnished supplied to this material specification shall conform to Specification A20/A20M. These requirements outline the testing and retesting methods and procedures; permissible variations in dimensions; and mass, quality, and repair of defects, marking, loading, and ordering information.

3.2 In addition to the basic requirements of this specification, certain supplementary requirements available when additional control, testing. Or examination required to meet end use requirements. The purchaser referred to the listed supplementary requirements in this specification and to the detailed requirements in Specification A20/A20M.

3.3 If the requirements of this specification are in conflict with the requirements of Specification A20/A20M, the requirements of this specification shall prevail.


These plates manufactured using the best quality of raw material and A537 class 2 grades. Therefore, these have high strength, corrosion resistance, resistant to oxidation, ductility, long functional life, and hardness. These plates can easily withstand in extreme environment and temperature, offering best results.

Uses and Application Industries

This plates majorly used by the refinery and petrochemicals and for Low Temperature Pressure Vessels. And Equipment where the Chances of Crackebility gets NIL. IBC offer a broad range of A537 Class 1 Steel Plate through a worldwide network. These A537 Steel Plate is use in various industries like • Fertilizers Industry • Aerospace Industry • Nuclear Power Plant Industry • Chemical Industry • Oil & Gas Industry • Refineries Industry • Petrochemical Industry • Paper Industry.

Typical Application of A537 Steel Plate including • Boilers • Calorifiers • Columns • Dished Ends • Filters • Flanges • Heat exchangers • Pipelines • Pressure vessels • Storage tanks • Valves.

Certification and tests

These class 2 plates are when manufactured by leading manufacturers, come across various tests and certifications such as flaring test, flattening test, radiography test, ultrasonic test and third-party inspection. Not only this, when these plates delivered to customers various certificates authorized such as mill test certificate, IBR test certificate, radiography test certificate and third-party inspection report. All these tests do under the guidance and supervision of quality experts so as to check the quality and durability of these plates.


The ASME SA537 Pressure Vessel Plates well tested and inspected. And when it comes about the packaging process a complete care give so that they don’t get damaged. Moreover, to prevent these plates’ damages and rusting. These plates packed in best quality of pallets, wooden cases, boxes or waterproof wrappers. Hence, they remain in the same state and maintain their quality for a long time without getting damaged.

Each request is bundled by the client’s measures including making approaches for toll, for example,wooden case, bed or as showed up by client’s principal All transportation documentation is obliged A537 Class 1 Steel Plate change from plant to client. Each endeavor starts with a visit of our refined methodologies select who examines the volume/weight of the effects and brief the customer about crushing required and in addition fantastic documentation conventions while moving from China.

Chemical Requirements

The steel shall conform to the chemical requirements shown in Table 1 unless otherwise modified in accordance with Supplementary Requirement S17, Vacuum Carbon-Deoxidized Steel, in Specification A20/A20M.

Mechanical Requirements

Requirements—The material as represented by the tension-test specimens shall conform to the requirements shown in Table 2. For Class 2 and Class 3 plates with a nominal thickness of 3⁄4 in. [20 mm] and under, the 11⁄2-in. [40-mm] wide rectangular specimen may be used for the tension test, and the elongation may be determined in a 2-in. [50-mm] gage length that includes the fracture and that shows the greatest elongation.
