CARBON STEEL Carbon steel is the most common material used in industry due to its relative low cost, high strength, favorable properties, and general application in many chemical processing services. Carbon steel has predictable behavior, can be used at elevated temperatures up to 540°C (1000°F), and seldom fails in an unexpected fashion. Carbon steel's excellent ductility permits mechanical manipulation into various shapes; its formability coupled with ease of welding allows different component parts to be joined into one continuous piece of equipment, such as a pressure vessel or a long run of piping. Conventional carbon steel contains mostly iron with small amounts of carbo…
