This temperature depends basically on steel composition. There are some models proposed for the calculation of such temperatures. See, for example,
ADRIAN, H. Thermodynamic Model for Precipitaion of Carbonitrides in HSLA Steels. Materials Science and Technology, 8, 1992, 406-420.
SPEER, J.G. Carbonitride Precipitation in NbV Microalloyed Steels. Metallurgical Transactions, 18A, 211-222, 1987.
All the best,
