Boiler Quality steel is a steels that is used in a variety of industries for the fabrication of boilers and pressure vessels. When steel is described as boiler quality steel it is capable of being used in avariety of vesselsto withstand high pressures. Pressure vessel manufacture is highly regulated as pressure vessels and boilers often contain volatile compounds and have the capacity to acts as a very large explosive device if not designed, fabricated, operated or maintained correctly.
Boiler quality steel is used in a huge range of industrial processes. It is used in the power generation industry for heating water to generate steam and in many large buildings for supply both hot water and heating. In the food, chemicals and pharmaceutical industries it is used as part of the process to help turn the feedstock into the desired end product. In the oil and gas industry where much of our boiler quality steel plate is used it is used for pressure vessels and heat exchanger in process modules and skids and also in large downstream facilities. Without boiler quality steel plate we would not be able to make something like 90% of the products that are on every supermarket shelves – in large part due to palm oil processing and oil and gas processing.
