Titanium tube sheets play a crucial role in heat transfer, allowing fluid or gas to flow through the tubes while maintaining a sealed and secure connection with surrounding structures. Titanium is selected for tube sheet applications due to its excellent corrosion resistance, high strength to weight ratio, and high temperature resistance. The commonly used titanium plate grades for tube sheets are Gr2/Gr7/Gr12 Different grades of titanium sheets are chosen due to the different requirements for corrosion-resistant materials in their application environments. Generally, the corrosion performance of Gr7(Ti-0.2%Pd) titanium palladium alloy is better than that of Gr12 titanium molybdenum nickel alloy, and the corrosion performance of Gr12 titanium sheet is better than that of pure titanium Gr2 titanium sheet.
Titanium tube sheets are widely used in industries such as chemical processing, petroleum and natural gas, power generation, seawater desalination plants, and other applications where corrosion resistance and thermal stability are crucial. The design and specifications of titanium tube sheets may vary depending on specific applications, operating conditions, and industry standards.
