Titanium alloys for sour service
The combination of stress corrosion resistance, low density, low modulus and non-magnetic properties possessed by titanium alloys makes many of them suitable for service in sour conditions. Titanium has been successfully used in a variety of sour service applications in the drilling, logging and production phases of the oilfield industry....
Titanium for offshore and marine applications
In all fields of engineering, but nowhere more than in marine and offshore service, designers, fabricators and end users are readier than ever before to consider titanium for a continually widening range of applications. Today there are several thousand tons of titanium in service offshore....
Titanium in seawater: one of the best performers
Titanium is one of the best performers for use in a corrosive seawater environment and is therefore often used for sheet heat exchangers. Nevertheless, with concerns about prices and delivery times, titanium is not usually regarded as the standard material for use in this type of environment. Jan Heselmans assesses whether this viewpoint is correct or not....
Titanium tube failures in Helifin® heat exchangers
In this technical paper, materials experts from Statoil discuss the failure analysis of heat exchanger tube leakages. The failure mode was concluded to be sliding adhesive wear of the tubes at the baffle plates caused by fluid induced vibrations of the heat exchanger's low finned titanium tubes. The failure mode was simulated in a laboratory test, and the tube vibrations were verified by theoretical calculations...
