The ASTM A537 is the standard specification for heat-treated carbon Manganese-Silicon steel plates intended for pressure vessel plates. Some applications of this specification are pressure vessels designed for medium and lower-temperature service, asking for supreme notch toughness also for API 620 and API 650 storage tanks. This specification is available in various categories, namely, Class 1, Class 2, Class 3, and so on. ASTM A537 CL. 2 Plates are available as quenched and tempered plates. Actual temperatures and times for tempering are carefully chosen for each composition. The maximum thickness of plates allowed as per this specification for Class 2 is 6 inches. This specification has features like high strength, toughness and flexibility, and off-course excellent malleability, which makes it suitable for industrial machinery, textile machinery, cement companies, etc.
It is necessary to check that the specification has required elements in proper proportion like Manganese, Carbon, Phosphorous, Silicon, Copper, Nickel, Sulphur, Chromium, and Molybdenum in its composition. This can be done using heat and product analysis. In addition to this, tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation ability shall get confirm using various mechanical tests like a tensile test, etc.… ASTM A537 CL. 2 Plates are welded using fusion welding depending upon the application for which it will get used.
