High temperature metallurgy material

Can someone please guide me that which stainless steel material grade is suitable for the below operating condition?

Continuous Operating temperature is:1000 DegC in a sulfurous environment

RE: High temperature metallurgy material

I recommend paying attention to 316L stainless steel. it is often used for such environments and is able to withstand the required temperature.
P.S. Thanks, rickfischer51

RE: High temperature metallurgy material

Yeah, but with what load? The ASME BPVC gives an allowable stress S of 1300 psi at 1500F (816 C)which is the maximum use temp in Sect II, Part D, Table 5A. You might want to take a look at this:
