Everyday the average person comes across a wide variety of metal applications. From simply driving your car to riding the elevator up to your floor, metal is everywhere. Depending on the application, there are so many types of high quality metal components that can be utilized to fit a need perfectly. There are metals that are strong and light, others that are sturdy and heavy, and depending on what the metal will be ultimately used for these characteristics make some metals more desirable for certain industries. One such component that finds purpose in several industrial applications is titanium tubing. To understand the applications of titanium tubing, it is first important to understand what characteristics of this metal set it apart.
What is Titanium Tubing?
Titanium is a metallic element that is recognized mainly for its high strength to weight ratio. It is a lustrous metal that has a low density, but is incredibly strong. In addition to its remarkable strength, taking into consideration its light weight, titanium is also widely used in extreme applications because of its resistivity qualities. Titanium is highly resistant to corrosion, including, but not limited to, in sea water and chlorine. Tubing is simply a component form in which a metal can be formed in to. A cylindrical shape that varies in diameter and length, tubing is hollow and can be used in a variety of applications.
What are Titanium Tubing Applications?
Due to the unique characteristics that set titanium apart, titanium tubing can be used, as mentioned earlier in extreme applications. In the aerospace industry, the metals used have to withstand immense amounts of pressure and resist highly corrosive liquids and heats within an engine, but at the same time be light enough to fly. Because of this, titanium tubing is the perfect option for components in the aerospace industry. It is also used in the marine industry, another environment where the metal has to withstand corrosive liquids and pressure, but still be light. Other applications include, but are not limited to, the chemical and petrochemical industry, the medical industry and the nuclear industry.
