MATERIALS AND FABRICATION OF 2 1/4 CR - 1 MO, 2 1/4 CR - 1 MO - 1/4 V, 3 CR - 1 MO, AND 3 CR - 1 MO - 1/4V STEEL HEAVY WALL PERSSURE VESSELS FOR HIGH-TEMPERATURE, HIGH-PRESSURE HYDROGEN SERVICE



Document Abstract
This recommended practice presents materials and fabrication requirements for new 2 ¼Cr and 3Cr steel heavy wall pressure vessels for high-temperature, high-pressure hydrogen service. It applies to vessels that are designed, fabricated, certified, and documented in accordance with ASME BPVC, Section VIII, Division 2, including Section 3.4, Supplemental Requirements for Cr-Mo Steels and ASME Code Case 2151, as applicable. This document may also be used as a resource when planning to modify an existing heavy wall pressure vessel.

A newer ASME BPVC, Section VIII, Division 3, is available and has higher design allowables, however it has much stricter design rules (e.g. fatigue and fracture mechanics analyses required) and material testing requirements. It is outside the scope of this document.

Materials covered by this recommended practice are conventional steels including standard 2-¼Cr-1Mo and 3Cr-1Mo steels, and advanced steels which include 2 ¼Cr-1Mo-¼V, 3Cr-1Mo-¼V-Ti-B, and 3Cr-1Mo-¼V-Nb-Ca steels. This document may be used as a reference document for the fabrication of vessels made of enhanced steels (steels with mechanical properties increased by special heat treatments) at purchaser discretion. However, no attempt has been made to cover specific requirements for the enhanced steels.

The interior surfaces of these heavy wall pressure vessels may have an austenitic stainless steel weld overlay lining to provide additional corrosion resistance. A stainless clad lining using a roll-bonded or explosion-bonded layer on Cr-Mo base metal may be acceptable, but is outside the scope of this document.
