Trends in the Use of Titanium in Heat Exchange

  • C. F. Hanson


Titanium’s unique corrosion and erosion resistance in saline and polluted water is well known. Diminishing relative prices have resulted in dramatic growth in the use of titanium tubular and plate heat exchangers as users recognise the cost benefits of total reliability systems.
