Heat Exchanger, Pressure Vessel andIndustry Equipments are mainly made up of titanium seamless tube or titaniumwelded tube, titanium plate or titanium fin plate and titanium tube sheet.
Most used sizes are titanium seamless tubeor titanium welded tube: OD0.5”(12.7mm), 0.63”(16mm), 0.75”(19.05mm), 1”(25.4mm),1.25”(31.75mm), 1.5”(38.1mm), 1.78”(45mm), 2”(50.8mm) etc, and WT0.02”(0.5mm),0.024”(0.6mm), 0.028”(0.71mm), 0.035”(0.89mm), 0.049”(1.24mm), 0.11”(2.77mm),0.125”(3.17mm) etc.
Currently there are titanium tube sheet andtitanium elliptical/spherical head, titanium clad steel plate/tube sheet fromCDM.
Usually titanium clad steel tube sheetswould be made up of stainless steel F53 plus titanium GR2. The stainless steelplate F53 is a very special metal that is hard to compound with other metals,Last month, CDM finished a project for one our South Africa customers. All thetitanium seamless pipes and the titanium clad plates were used for the heatexchanger, working for the big Sperrylite .
These titanium steel clad tube sheets madeof steel F53 + titanium Gr2. The stainless steel plate F53 is a very specialmetal and hard to compound with other metals, but now CDM has a unique and matureexplosive composite technique to produce it.
Titanium is the ideal materials for thedesalination and water treatment now.
Titanium materials of Gr1, Gr2 will be forthese industries, because of great corrosion resistance, and gradually peoplewould like to use titanium tube instead of the other materials.
Because with the same anticorrosionperformance, the wall thickness of titanium production will be thinner thanother material, and the weight of titanium will be lighter. Besides, it isimportant that the lifetime of titanium production will be longer, as well asthe titanium material has the better corrosion resistance.
In the automobile industry, they are usingtitanium alloy materials, like mufflers and exhaust pipes. Because the titaniumalloy has special features, as high strength, good anticorrosion and high heatresistance.
Forpressure-critical components and vessels for industrial applications, titaniumalloys are qualified under numerous design codes and offer attractive designallowables up to 315°C (600°F). Some common pressure design codes include the ASMEBoiler and Pressure Vessel Code (Sections I, III, and VIII), the ANSI (ASME)B31.3 Pressure Code, the BS-5500, CODAP, Stoomwezen and Merkblatt EuropeanCodes, and the Australian AS 1210 and Japanese JIS codes.
