ASTM A387 Grade 22 (ASME SA387 Grade 22) is Chrom-Moly steel plate used for making boilers and pressure vessles designed for high temperature high pressure serivce, chrome content at 2.00% to 2.50%, and Moly 0.90% to 1.10% for SA387 GRADE 22 material.
The more content of chromium will provide better corrosion and oxidation resistance, ASTM A387 Grade 22 / ASME SA387 Grade 22 material could be used storage oil, gas, or other liquid for industries, and also compatible with sour services.
