RathGibson LLC has added titanium tubing for the industrial
market to its product line.
The company, a unit of
Janesville, Wis.-based Precision Castparts Corp., said it is
producing the commercially pure (CP) welded tubing at its North
Long Branch, N.J.-based facility.
Greg Jones, director
of chemical and petroleum industry sales, said
RathGibsons experience with the power generation and
chemical processing industries "led us to the realization that
many situations require the strength and durability that only
titanium can provide."
The tubing, made
primarily from CP Grade 2 titanium, is designed for heat
exchangers, condensers and chemical processing applications in
the chemical processing and power generation industries, where
its corrosion resistance and comparatively high
strength-to-weight ratio come into play. RathGibson can also
produce the tubing in CP Grades 12 and 16, Jones said.
