    Revision of A537 / A537M - 13(2019) Standard Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Heat-Treated, Carbon-Manganese-Silicon Steel

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: A537 / A537M - 20

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.11 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK70662


    Keywords

    carbon steel plate; pressure containing parts; pressure vessel steels; steel plates for pressure vessel application;;

    Rationale

    Several years ago most standards covered by A20 were revised to remove thickness restrictions based solely on ability to achieve properties. A537 was under review for the need to include that standard. Users have requested such and a producer is able to furnish in thicknesses higher than currently listed. This proposal would remove thickness limits.
