Titanium pipe/titanium tube used in various industries

1. Titanium pipes,titanium tube in military applications

A typhoon-class nuclear submarine, titanium tubes have a wide range of applications in the military industry.Titanium tubes are widely used in nuclear-powered submarines, hydrofoil boats, mortar tubes, anti-tank missiles, missile launchers, tank protection plates, bulletproof vests, etc.According to the data, the amount of titanium tube is up to 9000 tons, so it can be seen that the military industry has a huge demand of titanium tube.

2.Titanium pipes/tube in aerospace

Titanium tubes account for about 20~25% of the frame weight of civil aircraft. In addition, titanium tubes are also widely used in strategic rocket engines and spacecraft satellite antennas.Titanium tubes are widely used in the aviation industry.

3. Titanium pipes/tubes used in  Marine industry

Titanium tube has better corrosion resistance than other metal materials, especially in seawater.In addition, titanium control equipment and devices are widely used in coastal power stations, offshore oil extraction equipment, seawater desalination, Marine chemical production and mariculture.

4. Chemical applications

Equipment types have developed from small and simple to large and diversified.According to the chemical industry department, the application of titanium tube equipment has been expanded from the original soda and caustic soda industry to the whole chemical industry.The annual capacity of titanium tubes used in the chemical industry will exceed 1,500 tons.After the 1970s and 1980s, China's vacuum salt enterprises gradually began to use titanium tube metal materials to manufacturing equipment,greatly improved equipment corrosion.

5. Petroleum refining applications

Sulfur compounds, chlorides and other corrosive agents in petroleum processing products and cooling water are serious corrosive to the condensing equipment on the top of atmospheric and vacuum tower in the process of petroleum refining, especially the low-temperature light oil parts.

6. Applications in the automotive industry

Titanium pipes have been used in racing cars for many years, and their light weight, high strength and other properties have long been concerned by automobile manufacturers.At present, almost all racing cars are using titanium tubes. With the development of global automobile industry, the titanium tubes used in automobiles are still increasing rapidly.

7. Medical applications

Metal implants in the human body are a very rare surgical procedure, as medical technology improves.Due to the weak rejection reaction with human tissues, titanium tube metal is widely used in artificial bones, artificial joints, artificial teeth and other human implants.In addition, titanium tube in the pharmaceutical machinery, medical equipment applications have been further recognized, the future demand should not be underestimated.
