Welding electrodes: E316L-16 for SMAW or ER316L for GTAW/GMAW.
One more thing, welding procedure and project specification will detail the specific welding consumables.

Any recommend preheat and interpass temperature?
Follow project specifications or API RP 582 table 4 at material group P-No. 8:
Thanks, I call back check in our project are required 150 deg C max and WPS allowed max. 215.
So, do we need to revise WPS or not?
Maybe, should get Client approval before welding.
My experience: no need but your supervisor/welders make certain to control IP are not higher than temperature specified in spec. 150 deg. C during welding.
Please discuss with your client to get decision
