BS 1501
161-360A/B | 161-430A/B | 223-490A/B | 224-460A/B | 224-490A/B | 225-490A/B

Current equivalent standards to superseded BS1501 include ASTM A285 & A516, ASME SA285 & SA516 and the Euro Norm standard EN 10028. BS 1501 is the British Standard specification for carbon and carbon manganese steel plates for pressure purposes.

The standard (which outlines standards for certain grades which are suitable for pressure vessel and boiler fabrication) has now been withdrawn and superseded by the Euro Norm standard EN 10028.

Masteel UK Limited recognise that the steel industry still uses BS1501 for cross reference purposes which why is why our website provides technical information for BS150 specification and associative grades.

Below are a list of BS 1501 grades which are known to be suitable for use in industrial boilers, pressure vessels and heat exchangers.

BS 1501 – Comparable Pressure Vessel / Boiler Grades

The above grades should be used as reference material only. For information on current specifications relating to pressure vessel and boiler quality steel, please refer to the ASTM, ASME and EN specifications.
