Tantalum pipes have lustre and are highly resistant to corrosion. Laboratory equipment makes use of Tantalum in high quantities, as it is chemically inert.
Tantalum used for piping is extracted from tantalite using procedures such as crushing and gravitational separation. Welding of these tantalum pipes is carried out only in the presence of helium and argon, while creating an inert atmosphere. These pipes are extremely ductile in annealed conditions. Tantalum is majorly used in electronic component production. Mainly capacitors and high-powered resistors are produced using Tantalum. Tantal
