Gr 5

Titanium grade 5 is the most commonly used grade of titanium among all others. It is also known as the ‘workhorse’ of the different grades of titanium. Titanium grade 5 or Ti 6Al-4V is used to produce a large number of machine components, especially devices that prevent back flow of fluids or valves. The usage of grade 5 titanium in the production of machinery is more than 50% of the total usage of all the titanium grades.

 

Mechanical properties of grade 5 titanium valves:

  • It has increased strength due to heat treatment.
  • It can withstand temperatures up to 600°F and hence are used in welded constructions.
  • They are light weight.
  • They are corrosion resistant.

 

Applications of grade 5 titanium valves:

  • They are used in the manufacture of aircraft turbines.
  • They are integral parts of several engine components and aircraft or aerospace fasteners.
  • They find themselves marine applications and are used in high performance automatic parts.

 

The large usability of Titanium Gr 5 Valves is mainly due to its beneficial properties. This grade of titanium is also used in oil fields, especially in the Middle East countries. Also known as alpha-beta titanium, this form of titanium also contains a certain amount of aluminum mixed in it. The valves obtained from grade 5 titanium have fair weldability and the material undergoes elongation of about 10% before breaking.
