Pressure Vessel Steel Plate - Features, Applications and Specifications

A pressure vessel is a container designed to hold liquids or gases at a pressure often different to the surrounding atmosphere. Due to the nature of the substances being stored, which in certain cases may be hazardous, it is imperative that the construction material meets the exacting safety standards required for the application. At Masteel, we stock and supply a wide range of pressure vessel steel plate grades where safe operating pressure is critical.

Masteel's pressure vessel steel is of Western European origin which is the steel of choice for the world's boiler & pressure vessel fabricators.
