Titanium Exotic Alloys

Titanium – Exotic Alloys

One of exotic alloys, titanium is highly recognized due to its two most useful properties: extraordinary corrosion resistance and excellent high-strength-to-weight ratio.

Titanium is considered one of the exotic alloys which is known for its extreme immunity to corrosion and organic chemicals. This exotic alloy has white silvery metallic color and two times stronger and lighter than steel. With this exceptional feature, titanium is highly sought by big manufacturing industries like the automotive and aerospace construction.

Titanium Exotic AlloysTitanium earns the reputation of being a wonder metal as it is found in the high level competition vehicles from bikes to speed cars. It is recognized a little high above steel due to its two most useful mechanical properties; this exotic alloy possess very good corrosion resistance and extremely high strength to density ratio.

This metal can be alloyed with different elements including aluminum, molybdenum, iron, and vanadium to produce strong, super lightweight alloys. As a metallic element with super high strength, titanium can relatively stand high melting point of more than 1, 650 oC or 3, 000 oF which makes it as refractory metal. Titanium can have different tensile strength and density depending on the metal’s grade.

Titanium’s alloys can also oxidize quickly as exposed to air just like magnesium and aluminum. It can readily react with oxygen at 610o C (1, 130o F) in pure oxygen as well as at 1,200o C (2, 190o F) in air which forms a titanium dioxide. However, this metal is slow to react in water and a poor conductor of electricity and heat since it forms a passive coating which serves as protection against further oxidation.

Possessing high tensile strength, great corrosion resistance, and light weight, titanium is highly used in manufacturing abrasive water jet machine. Other of its major applications are:

  • Automobile
  • Naval ships
  • Aircraft
  • Spacecraft
  • Armor plating
  • Missiles

We also specialize in other exceptional alloys and metals. For more information about product availability, you may contact us directly to talk to our steel expert or get our Free Quotation to be assisted with your requirements.

Pump Shaft Quality

Pump Shaft Quality

Pump shaft quality bars completely ground to their finest to be distributed in rotating industries.

Pump Shaft QualityPump shaft quality is found in stainless steel bars which are mostly used in shaft manufacturings including camshafts and crankshafts in automotive.

Pump shaft bars are manufactured with the higher standard than regular steels. Highly rigid requirements are from different factors:

Vibration – It is a big concern during spinning the shafts in a higher speed. This is why pump shafts require a super high degree of straightness to as much as possible, prevent damage and harmful vibrations during the machining.

Diameter – Diameter tolerance is a big standard in a bar. Pump shaft steels must have the diameter tolerance of less than 1” outer diameter to +0”; -0.002” and no less than 1.5” to 4.0” outer diameter. The diameter should be consistent and precise to fit specific machinery for which it is designed.

StrengthPump shafts should possess the high strength require in the application. Certain stages, especially in pump shaft applications undergo heavy loads and high speeds that might damage or stress the material. That is why pump shafts require exact specifications in their mechanical property with the possible tensile strength of 100 KSI and minimum yield of 75 KSI.

ShippingPump shafts have very critical nature that needs protection from of lot of damaging factors which include rough handling in shipping. Careful packaging should be used upon delivery and shipping such as wooden boxes and cardboard tubing.

Inconel Bars

Inconel Bars

Inconel bars with their exceptional resistance to oxidation and corrosion are well suited in extreme environments with high levels of temperature and heat.

Inconel bars with their exceptional resistance to oxidation and corrosion are well suited in extreme environments with high levels of temperature and heat. A stable, thick, passivating oxide layer is formed when Inconel is heated. This layer serves to protect the alloy’s surface from further attack.

Inconel BarsInconel alloys can retain their strength across wide range of temperatures and can be fitting to high temperature applications where steel and aluminum would eventually capitulate to creep due to thermally-induced crystal vacancy. Precipitation hardening or solid solution strengthening develops the alloy’s high temperature strength.

Machining and shaping Inconel with the use of traditional techniques can be difficult due to a rapid work hardening. After first machining pass, workpieces are plastically deformed by work hardening. Such case makes age-hardened Inconels like Inconel 718 machined to their hardest to minimize the number of required passes.

Inconel bars are highly sought due to their unique ability of resisting carbonization and oxidation in high-temperature settings.

With their excellent properties and machinability, inconel alloys are typically used in the following applications:

  • Gas turbine blades
  • Combustors
  • Turbocharger rotors and seals
  • Pump motor shafts
  • Seals
  • Electric submersible
  • Pressure levels and chemical processing
  • High temperature fasteners
  • Heat exchanger tubing
  • Natural gas processing
  • Steam generators

Many industries and manufacturers are using inconel in place of steel. With the transition in the industry, we expand our product inventories to respond to the demanding requests of our customers with regard to steel crafting standards. We have inconel bars available in our facilities and available for delivery.

Heat Treated Bars

Heat Treated Bars

Heat treated bars with improved mechanical properties are supplied for demanding applications requiring hydraulic machinery shafts, support tolling, etc.

When there are properties highly required in steel bars, we perform heat treating for the production of heat treated bars. Heat treating is typically used to attain the necessary mechanical properties especially to aid the machinability property. To have more precise control of mechanical properties, heat treated bars undergo stress relieving process.

Heat Treated BarsComponents like alloys are also improved through heat treating, typically on their hardenability. Attaining the ideal hardenability in alloys cannot be done through alloying elements only. Instead full cross-section is othen used to increase the depth of hardness in each alloy.

The full cross-section method makes it possible for obtaining those desired mechanical properties in much larger sections without/ with lesser use of severe quenching means. This is where heat treating comes in the process in which the depth of hardness of the alloy is determined by the alloying elements and along with the used heat treating process.

Heat treated bars often exhibit characteristics such as fatigue resistance, toughness, high strength, and toughness which are perfect for demanding applications in severe environments:

  • Back up and support tooling
  • Hydraulic machinery shafts
  • Ejectors
  • Drill collars
  • Cams and bolts
  • Axles and piston rods
  • Reamer bodies and shafting
  • Tool bodies and tool holders
  • Boring bars
  • Gears and sprockets
  • Chain links
  • Valves
  • Tie rods and spindles
  • Machinery parts and components

We include heat treated bars in our product inventory which can ordered and delivered as cold drawn or hot rolled. Cold drawn heat treated bars tend to have much better surface condition, tighter diametrical tolerance, and increased yield and tensile strength. We can supply bars with different grades in heat treated conditions.
