Why is titanium used in offshore applications?
Ti-Tek are proud to stock raw titanium and titanium alloys in a wide range of grades and forms – suiting the diverse requirements of various industries, including the oil and gas industry.
Titanium is a chemical element with the atomic symbol ‘Ti’ and atomic number 22. It’s used widely across the oil industry for production, underwater applications, engineering and refining.
When compared to steel, titanium is 45% lighter but just as strong. Grades 1 to 4 are titanium in its purest form, where grades 5 to 12 are alloys. Titanium can be alloyed with other elements, including iron, aluminium, vanadium and molybdenum, to provide exceedingly high strength.
Offshore uses for titanium
Titanium is used in the marine industry for ocean engineering. The oil and gas industry uses titanium bars, rods, sheets and bolts for heat exchangers and the lining of high-pressure vessels. A titanium bar is often used in place of a stainless steel bar.
