No, it may not. The table states that the temperature restriction is for “Any combinations of chlorides . . . ” NACE MR0175/ISO 15156-3 does not define the expected performance of UNS S66286 in environments containing no chlorides.
This question is in relation to NACE MR0175/ISO 15156-3 A.8, Table A.26
