Titanium Application-Part 2
In power generating plants, where saline, brackish or polluted waters are used as the cooling medium, titanium thin wall condenser tubing will last for the life of the condenser (with a 40-year warranty against failure under proper conditions) and eliminate the need for a corrosion allowance.
In petroleum exploration and production, titanium pipe’s lightweight and flexibility make it an excellent material for deep-sea production risers. In addition, titanium’s immunity to attack by seawater makes it the preferred material for topside water management systems. It is used on existing platforms in the North Sea and many more projects are in the planning stages. And since it shows virtually no corrosion in saltwater, titanium is also the material of choice in desalination plants worldwide.
