Pressure Vessel (PVQ) Steel Plate
Leeco® Steel is your resource for pressure vessel quality (PVQ) steel plate.
PVQ steel plate is used for the production of pressure vessels, which are closed containers designed to hold gases or liquids at a pressure substantially different than the ambient pressure.
Due to the high potential for dangerous accidents in the event of material failure, PVQ steel plate must meet specific composition and material properties. In particular, temperature thresholds play important roles in PVQ material.
PVQ is often available in as-rolled, as well as normalized conditions. Normalization increases the ductility and notch toughness (or, the ability to absorb energy despite a material flaw) of material, both of which are ideal attributes for pressure vessel manufacturers and engineers. While similar, this process is slightly different than other heat treatments, such as quenched and tempering.
Leeco Steel supplies both common and specialty PVQ steel plate that meets American and European specification standards to clients across the country and around the globe.
Leeco Steel also provides complete product documentation with every purchase, which includes chemical composition and material property test results where applicable. Our trusted supply chain and strategically located distribution centers ensure we can provide you with the PVQ steel plate material you need when you need it.
