This chart shows the pressure-temperature ratings for flanges of Group 2.4 Materials from class 150 to class 2500. Hover on the nodes to see the values of pressure in bar at specific temperature.

Group 2.4 includes the following materials:

  • Forgings: A 182 Gr. F321, A 182 Gr. F321H
  • Plates: A 240 Gr. 321, A 240 Gr. 321H

Austenitic stainless steel Grade 321 shall not be used at temperatures over 538°C.

Allowable Working Pressure for Intermediate Temperatures

Interpolate the pressure for any rating by selecting pressure rating for group 2.4 material and entering value of temperature into the input box below.

Plates A 240 Gr. 321H can be used over 538°C only when the material is heat treated by heating to a minimum temperature of 1095°C.
