Titanium tubes find widespread use in the aerospace industry for hydraulic systems, including in landing gear, doors and wing flaps.
The most common grade for titanium tubes is Grade 9, also known as 3.0Al-2.5V.
Grade 9 titanium tubes are manufactured to many specifications, including AMS 4943, AMS 4944, AMS 4945, AMS 4946, ABS5004 and DMS2241. We also offer commercially pure Grade 2 titanium tubes to ASTM B338 or AMS 4942.
Our titanium tube range mainly caters for smaller sizes due to use in hydraulics applications. We stock titanium tubes from as small as 3mm OD x 0.5mm wall. However, we also offer larger titanium tubes up to around 2” (50mm) diameter in Grade 9.
Titanium tubes offer unique performance characteristics, including high strength, low density and excellent corrosion resistance.
Demand for titanium for aerospace applications is increasing. The alloy helps to reduce weight while maintaining strength.
Not only does this impact significantly on the overall weight of an aircraft but also fuel consumption. As demand for greener solutions is at an all-time high, titanium and carbon fibre are now more popular than ever for use in aircraft builds.
Our stock range includes the finest quality alloys selected explicitly to support the MRO sector. We recognise that an aircraft out of service is a huge cost; therefore, we stock the right products to suit your engineering requirements.
