“The temperature column in Table A.2 (and for all other tables) defines the maximum exposure temperature in combination with the limits for partial pressure of H2S, chloride and pH. The equipment user shall define the exposure temperature. The equipment manufacturer may define an operating temperature range or safe use maximum temperature for a specific product.”
