The Allowable Stress – Temperature Chart of ASTM A213 T91

The ASTM A213 T91 seamless tubes are primarily used for boiler, superheater, and heat-exchanger. It is also an 9Cr-1Mo-V alloy steel with UNS designation K90901. Compared to its equivalent ASTM A335 P91, the chemical composition requirement of T91 steel is slightly different. On the other hand, the tensile test parameters of the former and the latter are the same. What makes A213 T91 distinct from  A335 P91 is that the former is usually applicable to tubing with sizes from 1/8″ [3.2 mm] in inside diameters to 5″ [127 mm] in outside diameters and minimum wall thicknesses from 0.015″ to 0.500″ [0.4 to 12.7 mm], inclusive. Besides, ASTM A213 T91 is only endorsed by ASME B31.1 Power Piping but not by ASME B31.3 process piping.
