Titanium Brief Introduction-Part 2
Today we are talking about Titanium material APPLICATION, it widely used in Aerospace and Marine, Industrial, Energy like Gas or Oil,(due to its Corrosive Resistance, especially on Offshore).
Specification as below:
Aerospace and marine
Because titanium alloys have a high tensile strength to density ratio, high corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance, high crack resistance, and ability to withstand moderately high temperatures without creeping, they are used in aircraft, armor plating, naval ships, spacecraft, and missiles. For these applications, titanium is alloyed with aluminum, zirconium, nickel, vanadium, and other elements to manufacture a variety of components including critical structural parts, firewalls, landing gear, exhaust ducts (helicopters), and hydraulic systems. In fact, about two-thirds of all titanium metal produced is used in aircraft engines and frames. The titanium 6AL-4V alloy accounts for almost 50% of all alloys used in aircraft applications.
The Lockheed A-12 and its development the SR-71 “Blackbird” were two of the first aircraft frames where titanium was used, paving the way for much wider use in modern military and commercial aircraft. An estimated 59 metric tons.
Oil and Gas
It widely used in manufacturing Heat exchangers, Pressure vessels, Contenders, Subsea Equipment for EP oil, etc.
