Vessel Material

Hi Everyone,
May someone know what type of this material (stainless steel or carbon steel) SA105 and SA-516 70 and the maximum and minimum temperature and Pressure for this steel?

Thank you.

Are you asking for someone to Google this for you??

Good luck,

To a ChE, the glass is always full - 1/2 air and 1/2 water.

RE: Vessel Material

Antonio .....

There seems to be some major concepts here that you do not understand.

- Pressure Vessels are engineered containers that are built to retain a specific liquid under the limitations of a maximum pressure and maximum temperature. The strength of the vessel depends both on the materials selected and the configuration of the vessel. Agreed-upon rules to design, test and certify a vessel are contained in something called a Pressure Vessel Code.

- Poorly designed pressure vessels have exploded and failed in the past. Many people have been killed

- Pressure Vessels are constructed from approved and tested materials. SA 105 and SA 516 are commonly used carbon steel pressure vessel materials.

- Because a pressure vessel is an engineered structure and therefore the (pressure retaining) strength depends on the materials AND configuration, we cannot answer your question.

Here is a place to start:
