Titanium has become the material of choice to eliminate corrosion problems in bleach plants throughout North America. Solid titanium upflow and downflow tubes provide high reliability for chlorine dioxide bleaching stages compared to conventional acid brick lined steel or fiberglass. Titanium completely eliminates acid brick and grout failures and maintenance, and titanium eliminates fiberglass separation failures - providing great savings on your yearly maintenance budget.

Titanium also extends the range of operating temperatures compared to either acid brick or fiberglass that may be needed for ECF or TCF conversions driven by the Cluster Rule.

Our cone fabrication at the top of the bleach tower is a proprietary 3-flange design which connects the cone in 120 or 180 degree sections. Most cone fabrications go from the 7 to 9 ft inlet to a 18 to 22 ft outlet (same ID as the bleach tower).

Titanium Fabrication Corp. has the largest titanium welding field crew in the world and performs repairs on diffusers, pipe, and other titanium equipment all over the world. For information on our field services capabilities, click here.

All mechanical engineering design is carried out in-house with several design softwares available (PV-Elite, CodeCalc, Compress, AutoCad, etc.)
