ASTM a335 p91 pipe

ASTM A335 P91 Pipe

What is ASTM a335 p91 pipe?

Metallic pipes are used in the petrochemical, boiler, nuclear power plant, energy, and food industries. Each of these industries has specific requirements. There are international standard organizations that determine these standards. The ASTM A335 P91 Pipe is a chrome moly pipe that has carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, chromium, and molybdenum in the composition. These pipes are meant for high-temperature applications. Apart from the P91, there are other grades that differ slightly in composition to have differences in the physical and mechanical properties.

ASTM A335 P91 Pipe Specification

ASTM A335 P91 Pipe Properties

P91 vs p9

p91 pipe is of a higher grade than the P9 grade. The P9 grade has 415MPa minimum tensile strength and 205MPa minimum yield strength whereas the P91 grade has 585MPa minimum tensile strength and 415MPa minimum yield strength. The ASTM a335 gr p91 pipes have high corrosion resistance and temperature resistance as well.

Advantages and disadvantages of sa 335 p91 pipe

sa 335 p91 has high strength so that it can withstand high-impact pressure and allow high-speed fluid flow inside the pipes. The p91 chemical composition allows the metal to be ductile to a certain extent. The high chromium content provides additional corrosion resistance. However, the material composition also provides extra hardness. The hardness is also improved by heat treatment. This makes the pipe less ductile than the lower grades.

Customized diameters of P91 chrome pipe are available in Sch 10/10, Sch 5/ 5, Sch 40, Sch 80/ 80s, etc.; learn more about pressure classes.

What are the pressure classes of a335 gr p91 pipe?

a335 gr p91 pipe has pressure capacities denominated by their schedules. The higher the schedule, the higher the pressure capacities of the pipe are. There are schedules 20 through Schedule XXS. The schedule is directly correlating to the a335 p91 material pipe wall thickness.

What is the origin of the p91 chrome pipe?

The metallic compositions and alloying processes are centuries old. The p91 chrome pipe composition originated from different high alloy materials. When high alloy materials with a high concentration of chromium or molybdenum were used, the function of each alloying material was known. From this, each different alloy was created with lesser quantities of the elements, but in larger numbers to add more functions to the alloys. The p91 material specification states that 9% chromium and 1% molybdenum in the composition of this grade.

In compliance with international standards, genuine stocking distributors supplying sa335 p91 material pipe of Jindal, TISCO, Baosteel, JFE, and many more brands, must check the HIC test.

How hic test is performed on uns k91560 pipe?

UNS K91560 pipe can undergo the hydrogen-induced crack test according to the NACE standards. The pipe sample is placed under a specified environment. The sample is stress relieved or unstressed before doing the test. The ASTM a335 gr p91 is then exposed to hydrogen sulfide gas for a minimum of 96 hours. The sample is then taken out of the environment and examined for cracks.
