Titanium materials demonstrate fantastic resistance to corrosion – and will not suffer adverse changes (i.e. pitting, cracking) due to corrosive substances. Whether it's used indoors or outdoors, it will last for many years – making it an excellent choice for buildings and marine applications, where it will be continuously exposed to seawater and rain. One of the biggest advantages of titanium material is its strength. What's more, as it has a low density, titanium is also incredibly lightweight. To put this into perspective, titanium has a specific gravity of 4.5 – which is approximately 40% lighter than an equal amount of copper and 60% lighter than an equal amount of iron. This is one of the reasons why it's often used in the aerospace industry and to create structural frames.
Refractory metal is a broad category of metallic materials that display excellent durability to thermal and mechanical stress. Their shared properties include resistance to corrosion and wear, high melting points, retention of mechanical strength at high temperatures, and high hardness at room temperature.
Titanium rod is tough. When a pistol bullet hit aluminum, fractures radiate at the speed of sound and the bullet blows on through. But when the bullet hits tough titanium with the same thickness, it slows the bullet to a stop. Because of the high density of titanium rods, they can consume more impact force than other materials. Titanium rods are light. Rod ends made of titanium differ from other steel ones in that they weigh considerably less for reduced rotating and reciprocating weight. On average, our titanium rod ends weigh 33% less than their steel counterpart with the same reliability and strength. The corrosion resistance of titanium is an added benefit to service life for rod ends on different vehicles and equipment. Corrosion fatigue is one of the major cause of rod ends failures in motor vehicles.
Titanium tube has high specific strength. The density of titanium alloy is generally about 4.5g/cm3. Titanium tube has high thermal strength. The operating temperature is several hundred degrees higher than that of aluminum alloy, and it can still maintain the required strength at medium temperature. Titanium pipe works in vertical atmosphere and sea water medium, its directivity is long-distance stainless steel; it has strong resistance to pitting corrosion, acid corrosion, stress corrosion; it has reducing oxygen and chromium salt medium to alkali, titanium chloride The oxidizing property is poor.
Titanium wire perfectly inherits the advantages of titanium and titanium alloys and has a series of excellent characteristics, such as good corrosion resistance, high specific strength, non-magnetic, high biocompatibility, low impedance to ultrasound and good shape memory function and many more.
Titanium forgings have excellent characteristics such as high strength, good corrosion resistance, non-magnetic, good welding performance, and a series of other advantages such as superconductivity, hydrogen storage, and memory. In the application of various titanium alloy products, forgings are mostly used in gas turbine compressor discs and medical artificial bones that require high strength, toughness, and high reliability.
Flanges are normally defined as a protruding ridge or rim which is intended to increase the strength of an element or distribute the load applied on it. When used to connect elements in a piping system, a Titanium flange is usually a protruding rim which is welded and/or bolted to the elements requiring the connection. Generally, each of the elements being connected will have a flange attached so the joint is done by bolting the two flanges. To guarantee the sealing of the connection, a gasket is placed between the flanges.
Titanium fittings present a number of advantages in oil and related industries. The reasons the material can be used for so many different purposes are as follows: Physical properties like high strength and low density improve the mechanism load while decreasing the string stress and structural weight.
Nickel is very strong and resistant to corrosion, making it excellent for strengthening metal alloys. It is also very ductile and malleable, properties that allow its many alloys to be shaped into wire, rods, tubes, and sheets.
Molybdenum is a valuable alloying agent, as it contributes to the hardenability and toughness of quenched and tempered steels. It also improves the strength of steel at high temperatures. Molybdenum is used in alloys, electrodes and catalysts.
