The Characteristics of Titanium Pipe Fittings

Because of its outstanding biocompatibility and stable chemical characteristics, titanium is used in titanium pipe fittings. It is compatible with all antibacterial techniques and can withstand the erosion of exudates in the human body without endangering people’s health. It is a metal that has no influence on our bodies and won’t produce excessive reactions since the titanium in the titanium coil has relatively strong corrosion resistance and stability. As a result, there is no chemical reaction between the material and the drying time.

Due to its low density, light weight, high strength, good mechanical qualities, resistance to corrosion, and weldability, titanium is used in a wide range of industries, including the electroplating industry, chemical equipment, offshore power generation, seawater desalination, and marine components. Compared to stainless steel, the resistance to corrosion is 15% stronger, and the service life is around 10% longer.

  1. Good corrosion resistance:

    Stainless steel is robust against pitting, acid corrosion, and stress corrosion. In contrast, titanium pipe fittings have a much stronger corrosion resistance and may be used in humid air and ocean environments.

  2.  Excellent low temperature resistance:

    At low temperatures, titanium alloy can still withstand mechanical stresses.

  3. High strength:

    The specific strength (strength/density) of titanium alloy is significantly higher than that of other metal structural materials. Its density is typically 4.51g/ cm³, or 60% of steel.

  4. High thermal strength:

    The high strength of titanium pipe fittings can be maintained for a long time at 450 to 500 °C. However, the specific strength of aluminum alloy decreases at 150 °C. The titanium alloy’s working temperature can drop below 500 °C, while the aluminum alloy’s can drop below 200 °C.

  5. Without a scaling layer, the surface is smooth and the scaling coefficient is significantly lower:                      Excellent steel is not as strong as titanium pipe fittings, which also have exceptional heat resistance, low temperature toughness, and fracture toughness. The majority of titanium items are employed as titanium setting equipment, rocket and missile structural elements, and aviation components.
