Because of its strength, unique density and corrosion resistance, titanium is used for high quality tubing destined for many industries. This metal is often a better substance to use than competing materials like stainless steels or super alloys because it is so light weight and corrosion resistant.
The density of titanium is about 60 per cent of that of steel- or nickel-based alloys. This provides significant weight savings in aerospace structures. The tensile strength is higher than that of austenitic or ferritic stainless steels. Titanium is also exceptional when it comes to corrosion resistance, out-performing stainless steels in most environments. It is non-magnetic and has good heat transfer properties, with a higher melting point than steel alloys.
Titanium is easily worked. Combine that with its strength, stiffness, toughness and heat resistance and it’s a very desirable metal for high performance metal tubing. At Superior Tube, we manufacture titanium tubes used in aircraft hydraulic systems, medical implants, offshore drilling rig components, subsea equipment, and marine and chemical processing plants.
Superior Tube manufactures titanium tubes in the following alloys:
|Ti 6Al/4V - Grade 5||R56400||3.7165|
|Ti CP - Grade 2||R50400|
