Corrosion resistance in sea water and brackish applications make titanium the material of choice in marine applications. It is used in ball valves, fire pumps, hull material for deep sea submersibles, water jet propulsion systems as well as shipboard cooling and piping systems and many other applications.
Titanium is immune to corrosive attack by salt water or marine environments, as a result it is an excellent material of choice for application such as deep sea submersibles, yacht fittings, propeller shafts and propellers, and in underwater manipulators.
In addition, due to titanium’s general corrosion resistance characteristics, titanium is also used in submarine ball valves, fire pumps, heat exchangers, exhaust stack liners, as well as shipboard cooling and piping systems.
Titanium’s formability, machinability, and weldability, make it an excellent choice for marine applications.
