Our Complete range of products are Pressure Vessel Steel Plates, boiler plates, HIC TESTED STEEL PLATES, CHROME MOLY PLATES and Stainless Steel Plates.
We stock and supply a wide range of pressure vessel steel plate grades for working environments where safe operating pressure is critical. Our pressure vessel steel is of Western European origin which is the steel of choice for the world's boiler & pressure vessel fabricators. We have a global reputation for the supply of high quality pressure vessel steel to these fabricators and many of them are suppliers to some of the worlds largest gas, oil and petrochemical companies.
We supply HIC tested steel plates to global customers in the Oil , Gas and Petrochemical Sectors. These customers demand the highest standards in terms of quality, durability and performance. HIC tested steel plate is the ideal choice for pressure vessels and boilers in this particular market as it is tested for resistance against hydrogen induced cracking. It is deemed to be the most sensible and cost effective solution, since standard carbon steel plate is more prone to hydrogen sulphide corrosion in wet h2s and sour service environments, and is a far more cost effective alternative to stainless steel. In essence, HIC testing is actually an evaluation of the steel for susceptibility to hydrogen embrittlement. The test procedure involves the evaluation of resistance of pressure vessel steel plate and pipework steels to hydrogen reduced cracking caused by hydrogen absorption from aqueous sulphide corrosion. An unstressed steel sample is exposed to a solution at ambient temperature and pressure. After a designated period, the sample is removed and assessed.
Stainless steel plate is often referred to as "corrosion-resistant steel" – it does not stain, corrode or rust as easily as normal carbon steel. It would however be misleading to say it is corrosion-proof. It differs significantly from standard carbon steel due to the amount of chromium present, which limits surface corrosion unlike carbon steel which will rust when exposed to air and any moisture in the atmosphere. Due to its anti-oxidation qualities, stainless steel is often a popular solution. Where low maintenance and corrosion resistance is required, stainless steel plates are a natural choice and are used in a diverse range of applications from modern architecture for cladding or fascias, to the food hygiene industry due to its anti-bacterial qualities. We supply stainless steel in a wide variety of grades and aesthetic finishes. There are many options available - for example adding carbon during the forming process will make the stainless steel more durable and stronger too. We can supply stainless steel in coils, sheets, plates and bars and ship the material worldwide.
