The Unique Performances of Titanium Valve
Titanium looks very similar to steel. Its density is 4.51 gram per cubic centimeter, which is 57% of the density of steel. It’s the metal element that has the lowest density among refractory metal.
Titanium is a highly chemically active metal. However, it exhibits a particularly excellent corrosion resistance to many corrosive media. The reason is that titanium and oxygen have a good affinity, and titanium is highly likely to react with oxygen to generate a layer of strong and dense blunt oxide film on its surface. In many harsh corrosive working condition media, this layer of oxide film is very stable, rather difficult to dissolve. Even if it’s damaged, as long as there is sufficient oxygen, it can self-repair and quickly regenerate.
Titanium sanitary valve mainly takes advantage of the characteristics of titanium metal materials that the oxide film has a good stability and self-passivation in a strongly corrosive environment to resist a variety of strong corrosions in harsh working conditions.
Titanium and titanium alloy valves have prominent advantages such as being light weight, high strength, good corrosion resistance and pressure resistance. They are widely used in aviation, space development, marine engineering, petroleum, chemical, light industry, food processing, metallurgy, electricity, medicine, health, instrumentation and other industries.
