SA209 BOILER TUBE and PIPE steel, Description of Boiler Tube Grades & Recommended Uses per BOILER TUBE GRADES CARBON STEEL SA178 Carbon steels show mild corrosion resistance and fair strength up to 1000F. However, their usage above 800F must take into account the susceptibility to graphitization. Graphitization has not been a significant problem in thicknesses encountered in boiler tubing. Use of heavy section pipe above 800F, however, is not recommended.
