I want to use API 5L Gr.B Seamless instead of ASTM A106 Gr.B. Please tell me detail for this replacements?
Merely API 5l Gr B accredited pipe can not be used in place of SA 106 Gr B in a pressure vessel or o heat exchanger developed to ASME and specifically U stamp task, Particularly if it is going to United States. If the job is going to be some where in Pakistan then you could be using ASME sec VIII as style requirement and this might not have the force of LAW, for this reason usage of API 5l Gr B in place of A 106 Gr B is based on your engineering judgement (Fitness of purpose) in most of the less crucial services this substitution would do no harm however once again you need to choose which is important and which is not.
The allowed stress for API 5L is given up ANSI B 31.3. You might jolly well substitute the grades in Pressure plant piping.
As it has been explained multiply significant pipes are acceptable for use in ASME exchangers and vessels.
Nevertheless there are some prominent difference between API 5L gr B and SA 106 Gr B. Compare the chemistry which have to be reported in case of API and A 106. Likewise API pipes are bought to OD (From the year 2000) where as SA 106 are ordered to NPS.
