The standard specification for carbon heat-treated pressure vessels is ASTM A537. The chemical composition of ASTM A537 Class 2 Steel Plate is carbon, silicon, manganese, phosphorus Sulphur, chromium, molybdenum, nickel, and copper. The ASTM SA537 Carbon Steel Class 2 Plate is tempered and quenched to improve strength and tolerances in stress-induced systems.
High-temperature quenching and tempering of ASTM A537 Class 2 modules is followed by rapid cooling. This class's items are welded using the standard fusion welding process. The metal is cut, bent, and shaped during the process to achieve the desired sizes.
The mechanical properties of ASTM A537 Class 2 modules are superior. These modules have a minimum yield strength of 310mpa and tensile strengths ranging from 450mpa to 620mpa. These modules can easily be extended by 18%.
The ASTM A537 material is a high-strength, wear-resistant module. This grade of material can withstand toxic acid and gases under stress conditions. However, the material does not perform well in extremely high-temperature systems and is prone to embrittlement.
ASTM A537 is a high-strength module with thicknesses ranging from 6mm to 300mm.
