Titanium Application

Oct. 18, 2019

Titanium is a chemical element and is a silver-white transition metal characterized by light weight, high strength, metallic luster and resistance to wet chlorine gas. It is considered to be a rare metal because it is scattered and difficult to extract in nature. However, it is relatively abundant. The ore of titanium mainly consists of ilmenite and rutile, which is widely distributed in the earth's crust and lithosphere. Titanium also exists in almost all living things, rocks, water bodies and soils. The most common compound of titanium is titanium dioxide, which can be used to make white pigments. Other compounds include titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4) (as a catalyst and used in the manufacture of smoke screens for aerial screening) and titanium trichloride (TiCl3) (for the production of catalytic polypropylene). So what are the main applications of titanium? Our Titanium Bar Manufacturer will answer for you.

First, aviation and aerospace industry applications

In aviation, titanium alloys are mainly used in: fuselage skin and skeleton, wing skin and ribs, engine compartment, tail skin, tail cover, vertical tail components, engine, etc. In the aerospace field, titanium and titanium Alloys can be used as pressure vessels in the rocket, missile and aerospace industries, such as fuel tanks, rocket launches, casings, rocket nozzle casings, satellite casings, manned spacecraft cabins (skin and structural skeletons), Landing gear, lunar module and propulsion system. Titanium products such as Aerospace Titanium Tube are often used in aircraft manufacturing.

Second, the application of the vehicle industry

In the manufacture of tanks and tanks in the national military field, titanium is mainly used to improve the command hatch and top attack armor. Titanium is also used for the tank's drive shaft, suspension arm, tow bar, torsion shaft, front spoke and so on.

The advantages of peptides applied to automobiles are mainly mentioned: low density, high specific strength, small elastic modulus, good heat resistance, small thermal expansion coefficient, good corrosion resistance, good freeze resistance, good formability and good decoration. . Reduce quality, reduce fuel consumption; improve power transmission, reduce noise; reduce vibration, reduce component load; improve vehicle durability and protect the environment. Therefore, the use of titanium in automobiles mainly includes engine systems (including valves, valve springs and their bearings, connecting rods, crankshafts, gearboxes, steering racks and pinions, etc.), chassis systems (springs, silencers, exhausts). Equipment, etc., body system (including bushings and bearings for wheels, various axles, fasteners, etc.)

Third, the application of the weapon industry

Made of titanium, it is light in weight and maneuverable. It is suitable for terrain complex and airborne units. The quality of titanium mortar board can be reduced by half. Mortar tubes, mortar base plates, body armor and vests, helmets, barrels, gun mounts, etc.

Fourth, the application of the ship industry

Titanium-made propellers, submarine whip antennas, seawater pipelines, condensers and heat exchangers, acoustic devices are used on ships such as nuclear submarines, deep submersibles, atomic energy icebreakers, hydrofoils, hovercrafts and minesweepers. , fire equipment, etc.

Fifth, application in marine engineering

Offshore oil drilling: Condensing tubes and heat exchange tubes, pumps, valves and fittings for closed-loop engines on titanium platforms on the ocean platform; titanium subsea oil risers and oil pre-stressed pipe joints, fixtures and fittings used in deep-sea drilling . In the seawater system: fire water, cooling water and sprinkler systems.

The above is some of our company's understanding of the application of titanium metal, if you are interested in titanium products, you can contact our company, our company produces titanium rods, titanium tubes, Titanium Sheet and other products, we as a professional titanium Metal products manufacturers, I believe that we can provide you with professional services, welcome you.
