What are titanium tubes and titanium fittings used for?


Titanium alloy pipes and titanium fittings are used to solve corrosion problems in industrial pipeline applications.


In recent years, the standardized production of titanium pipes has appeared in the market, which is also the innovation of the application of titanium pipes, greatly increasing the service life of titanium pipes and enhancing the application of titanium. The titanium bend pipe produced by this process has uniform wall thickness.


Pipeline corrosion is a serious destructive factor in the development of industry. According to relevant media reports, the annual steel loss caused by corrosion is more than 10,000 tons, titanium pipeline transport flammable, explosive, damaging, corrosive media, with risk factors. Therefore, there have the higher the requirements for titanium alloy tubes and fittings.


Titanium has the advantages of high strength, light weight, good heat transfer performance, corrosion resistance, etc., and has been widely used in chemical industry. These properties of titanium make it a relatively economical way to solve chemical engineering problems. Although the investment cost of titanium is higher than that of general performance materials, it is widely used in the chemical industry. According to life cycle analysis, the use of titanium fittings can reduce production costs by reducing maintenance, shortening downtime, increasing product quality and increasing pipeline life.


At present, titanium tubes and accessories have been widely used in chemical, petroleum, petrochemical, vacuum salt making, pharmaceutical, ocean engineering, electric power and other industries. Because of its good corrosion resistance, titanium is widely used in corrosive media, such as ionic membrane caustic soda, propylene oxide, etc. Titanium materials have been widely used in equipment fabrication and pipelines. Titanium pipes and fittings are also used in formic acid, methane chloride and other projects to solve the corrosion problem of pipelines.
